Today, Leslie, my former intern Jess (who has far surpassed me by becoming a fancy publicist in NYC) and I took in two costume exhibits. First , we went to the Met for an exhibit showcasing fashion eras of the American Woman. After, we went to the Brooklyn Museum for a sampling of their collection.
If you can, see both. If you can only see one, go to the Brooklyn Museum. We all agreed hands down Brooklyn was awesome and the better of the two. It’s so amazing and inspiring. I want to go back in time, major in art history and become a costume curator at the Brooklyn Museum — or anyplace that will have me.
Sigh. These mobile phone pictures are terrible. I did pick up the catalog, which is totally available on line for free 😀
On our rushed way back to Manhattan to catch my bus home, we stopped at Mood. I, meant to just get some cotton batiste. But, two yards of this silk / cotton blend came home with me too.
