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)

Outfit Details


  1. i'm new to your blog and i gotta say i love it.
    when i went to nyc last year i could help but to ignore the signs and take pics anyways, hehehe

    btw, i am soooo in love with your miu miu boots. i can't believe u found a pair. if u ever decide to sell them call me! seriously!


  2. Great outfit for a trip the museum--I just love the vest!

    The Richard Serra sculpture is also one of my faves. There is one of those in the contemporary building in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. I snapped a pic inside one of the conical sections, where no one could see me ;-).

  3. the vest is great, and i always like the way you put together outfits
    perfectly modern for the contemp art museum

  4. Love the Gareth Pugh vest, being a modern day gladiator is cool ;)
