as the title suggests, i spent yesterday in our nation's capital. it's a pretty grand city; the perfect mix of urban cityscape with lots of culture and wildlife (and by that i mean the extremely fat squirrels. they'
re so chubby and tame!). i visited 3 different art museums, the Hirshhorn, the Portrait Gallery, and another i cannot remember for the life of me. but the point is, i left D.C. feeling so inspired.
Is it sad that whenever i looked at a painting, the first thing i noticed were the clothes?
Even the ceiling of the museum is beautiful.
look at these dresses and tell me you don't want one.
horrible glare from my point&shoot's stupid flash. but look at the bow.. look at the ruffles! *dies of joy*
my favorite modern piece from the hirshhorn. there's something i love about it.
tunnel of blinking lights, and then shadows would flicker across it.. it's really nice and a little seizure provoking.
on to the white house!
they had dazzling chandeliers. more than one in every room.
tomorrow i might begin to be productive. i hope to make a few le sac dresses for gifts (and one for myself, too haha), and maybe a skirt tutorial. we'll see! Sorry for so many random photo posts and no outfit posts.. just a few more days til that tripod -- hopefully!
Oh, and two to follow most definitely: svenja and emily of MissionVintage. i made them a (rather crummy, not my best, i'm sorry!) banner, and they asked if i'd like to do some publicity. i would! they're pretty great. AND they're not paying me to say that, so you know it's true!
They would also be my first 'few to follow'. I know it's hardly original, but i've discovered so many beloved blogs via other people's few-to-follow lists so why not give it a go?
