dia: beacon

so today i decided to hit up the dia: beacon, one of two contemporary art museums in upstate new york that i told myself i must visit before the year is over (the other is the storm king art center.) it was a nice relaxing drive up north on the palisades parkway.

photography was not allowed inside the building, so while 'texting' a friend on my blackberry i 'accidentally' snapped a picture of my favorite installation in the museum, richard serra's torque ellipses:

the weather has been lovely lately - cool, breezy and low humidity. not one to waste a good weather day, i pulled out my gareth pugh vest for today's outfit. the whole thing felt very modern-day gladiator. although i should remind myself that some of my more outlandish pieces are even more out-of-place in the suburbs...

ITEMS (rollover mouse to view detailed picture)
Vince crew neck t-shirt (from Bloomingdale's i think)
Theory trouser/leggings (old, from Saks)
Gareth Pugh vest (from Century21)
Matt Bernson gladiators (from Tani maybe? i forgot!)
Vanessa Bruno classic tote (old, purchased in Paris)

summer night


ITEMS (rollover mouse to view detailed picture)
Martin Margiela miniskirt (from Century21)
Vivienne Westwood Red Label cotton drape top (from Century21)
Prada quilted evening bag (old, from eBay)

Outfit Details

would have loved to wear my ysl tribtoo pumps, but one of my tackiness-prevention tactics is to not wear super high heels with miniskirts (except maybe in colder weather, with tights.) i ended up wearing a pair of lanvin flats, which was kind of a mistake because it was really hot and patent leather is not the most forgiving when your feet swell up. oh well, live and learn...

summer part deux

you can now go straight from grand central terminal to yankee stadium for the same price as a subway ride...

pretty good seats for a spur-of-the-moment yankee game...

the yankees win!!! t-t-h-h-e-e-e yankees win!!!

definitely got my money's worth - tied in the ninth, extra innings (free baseball!), walk-off single in the 11th inning by robinson cano.

here's my second apology for being m.i.a.; same excuses - enjoying summer, my outfits have been extremely boring. i'll try to take some pics this week, i'm in the middle of a short stay-cation.
