LACMA: Fashioning Fashion

I got the pleasure of going to the press preview of the new LACMA Resnick Pavilion.
I viewed the most amazing collection.
And personally interviewed the curators.
Life is good.
 Classic robe à la française.
 Metallic thread detail
 Floral corset with boning
 Amazing detail of a purple velvet Victorian dress.
 What I wore to the event
Chanel pearls and bag, Dolce & Gabanna pumps, indiecollective wrap skirt
 Krista in a fur capelet/vest from indiecollective, skirt I got her at Goodwill
 YSL tributes bien sûr
 YSL bag
 The gorgeous terrace.
 Favorite item: pair of "Fetish" boots lined in red from 1900
 Along with a leather bustier from England
 The most beautiful silk corset I have ever seen.
 A French panier fully intact!
 The most unique piece: men's vest from the French revolution with mottos and symbols embroidered.
On October 2-3 its free! Reserve tickets at
Its a must see. It took my breath away.

Here's a link to my review of the collection including interviews with the curators!

burberry spring 2011

Christopher Bailey, you rock my world entirely.
I'm pretty sure I would do ANYTHING to own one of your jackets/coats.

all dressed up and no where to go

 Dress from Saks, vintage necklace-gift from Mom
 Mongolian fur scarf from Out of the Closet
 Shoes from some stripper store I got for $5.
This scarf is seriously amazing. 
Not only does it go with everything, its comfortable!

Its 113 degrees in LA

 I'm obsessed with this vintage Hawaiian dress I found at Goodwill
 Its comfortable and flattering.
 And I could totally wear it on the beach or out shopping.
Necklace from Esther.

over the knee

 Vintage shrug I've had forever, dress from Goodwill
 I literally died when I found these boots at Goodwill.
They are like brand new, made in Spain, over the knee mystery boots.

wonderfully ugly shoes

Betsey Johnson dress I scored at Goodwill
Amazing so ugly they're amazing 90s meets Marie Antoinette metallic faux-ostrich pumps.
My mom bought me these for my costume a few years ago and now I've decided to integrate them into my everyday wardrobe.
I love that this dress is swiss dot.
H&M belt.
Necklace from the ever-elusive Esther.

anna dello russo

This editorial was styled by AdR herself 
Her style is utterly perfect excess
Classic sophistication with a slight twist
I strongly approve
Who knew over accessorizing could look this good?
