I’m back from spending my day in the city with some members of the Fashion Club (university organization). It was a museum trip so we visited the FIT museum and the Museum of the City of New York. It was great to be outside today because the sun finally came out to say hello, though it was a bit chilly for most of the day. I had brought a cardigan with me and that’s why I was wearing leggings.
The exhibit was good at the FIT museum, but I’d already seen it on my own. It was mostly historical clothing then went into more contemporary styles. The best part was seeing those spiky Christian Louboutin for Rodarte heels in gold under a glass case. I first saw them in a magazine but seeing in real life is amazing!!! However the worst part is that you are not allowed to take photos, not even without flash. For some reason FIT is really strict about photography in their exhibits.
Later we went over to the Museum of the City of New York, which I thought looked very familiar as we walked closer to its location. I had mentioned to my friend how it looked like the location for the Gossip Girl school. She thought so too, but we weren’t sure. I mean really I know my Gossip Girl so of course once I got home and check it out….IT IS!!!! Argh it’s so not fair, I really want to go back and take photos of that location because I love the exterior and Gossip Girl films there! Anyway we went there to check out the exhibit about the fabulous Valentina, but more about that in tomorrow’s post.
Today’s outfit consisted of pairing a plain purple crew neck t-shirt and a black skirt. The t-shirt was bought this past weekend at Forever 21 for $4.50. It’s soft, comfy and loose and actually nice for something from Forever 21. I also bought it in gray and white. The outfit is pretty simple, but I like the combination of solid colors/basics.
Forever 21 tee, Old Navy skirt, Target leggings, H&M peep toe flats.
