What to wear when meeting a fashion icon? Good question. I’ll let you know what I pick out after I’m done having my panic attack.
This weekend I finally made it to the Schiaparelli / Prada exhibit : Impossible Conversations. After one failed attempt, ahem, the night of the Met Gala, I was able to view these ladies work in all its glory.
The thing that I love about Prada and Schiaparelli is that they work outside the box. Deconstruction breeds these beautiful works of art. What I really enjoyed was that Miuccia does not think of herself as an artist or fashion as art - such an interesting perspective. I also loved discovering that she went into fashion as a way of rebelling, my kind of lady.
Schiaparelli is a designer that I have admired since I was in college. Her ability to envision these amazing theatrical creations is astounding. Whenever people have told me I was “creative” I always thought to myself, “If you only knew what creative was.”
If you haven’t been, definitely make time to go.
Officially Hamptons ready.
Today was a magical day. I attended my very first New York City sample sale…. and let’s just say in the fight of Sarah v. Sample Sale… Sample Sale won. Big time.
However, there is an upside. I did stock up on some pretty great things. I scored an amazing cashmere scarf (originally $350) for just $45. Also, the best daughter in the world managed to grab a teal silk shantung blouse with hand beading for her madre for Madre’s Day (that’s right, buying her love) for just a bit more.
I guess I’ll just have to put off buying a few other things like groceries for a while.
Absolute favorites at the 2012 Costume Institute Gala at the Met.
Of course Anna would give a wink to Elsa.
Last minute paint job before the first day!
I just bought my first pair of rain boots… RAIN - BOOTS. I have to walk to work in the rain. This is one of those moments when I think, “What have I gotten myself into?”.
Saw the street but not the man.
So, pretty much every dress I have purchased this season is backless… I think this is called addiction.
While shopping and exploring the South Village today, my curious coworker and I stumbled upon il Corallo Trattoria. We were seated right away in this tiny little Italian restaurant. Looking around you could tell the place was filled with regulars- most people were ordering as soon as they sat down without looking at a menu.
However, upon looking at the menu it was puzzling how they even picked a favorite - there were literally three pages of pasta options. I was in carb-heaven.
After devouring my capellini dish with broccoli and asparagus, I sampled my coworker’s dish - farfalle with shrimp in a buttery sauce… so tasty.
If you happen to be strolling down Prince street, definitely stop in!
