cobras and matadors

















(Comme des Garçons oxford blouse, AA mesh body suit, AA riding pants, F21 pin necklace, JC lita shoes, vintage metal purse, vintage knit baret)

So here it is. Some photos from last Tuesday's excursion to the Getty. It wasn't really an excursion at all, but it was when you consider walking in 5 1/2" heels dodging children simultaneously at a museum in 85 degree weather wearing thick scuba diving-like pants.

How would I describe this look? Well when putting it together and seeing the end result, I came to the conclusion that...Yup...I look like I'm going to be taunting some bulls today. All I was lacking was a balero jacket to complete the look. Nonetheless, I thought the outfit made for a fun one at a trip to the Getty.

If you have not been to this gorgeous institution in Los Angeles, the views, the gardens, and the exhibits are good enough excuses to go and spend the day there. They also have a grassy trimmed knoll there which is perfect for a picnic. Yes, you can bring a little picnic with you...great way to do something cost-efficient and maybe eat food that you actually like. Museum food can be a little daunting sometimes. Just don't forget to bring a little vino or some bubbles in your little aluminum bottle to make for a complete c'est la vie experience.
