Savage Beauty

Went to Alexander McQueen's exhibit, "Savage Beauty," at the MET last month. Can we say holy sensory orgasm?!?!? Upon entering the exhibit, my friend and I immediately had goosebumps and chills. It was incredible to read about the late designer's influences, as well as see these AMAZING, unimaginable pieces/works of ART up close and personal. I plan to see the exhibit again before it's run at the MET ends - it was THAT amazing! You have until July 31st to see the exhibit... Get yo' ass over there and GET INSPIRED!!!

You can see this SICK dress created by robots (?!?!?) during his 1999 show in the exhibit (do yourself a solid and watch this video!! It is what EVERY fashion show should be - a SHOW):

I wasn't allowed to take any pictures inside the exhibit, but here's some pictures of me acting like an immature idiot in the prestigious museum. As you will soon learn in these few photographs, I love men in uniform, phallic photo ops, guacamole and Vespas.

I'm rocking Valentino sunglasses (sale $120 from $300, Nordstrom), an H&M blazer (sale, $20), an Urban Outfitters skirt (sale, $10), a bought the wrong size cropped Hanes tank, Joyce Leslie necklace ($8), Free People anklets (sale, $10 each), M. London leather bag (graduation gift from Mama Turka), and never worn men's brogues $3.99 at Goodwill.
