Photo Journal: NYC

In such a city that can be so loud, busy, and even downright grumpy, it feels amazing to find a place where you can feel at peace aside from your home.  I first went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art shortly after moving home from Miami during college and I found that there.  The first time I went, I bought a membership.  On the weekends around 7pm are my favorite times to go, it’s always empty and it’s a nice way to end your day.  My friend Suzy was in town this week and asked me to take her there, since she’s never been.  I missed out on all of the Pride Week festivities over the weekend because I had a bad sinus infection, so a nice afternoon with my friend who I never get to see surely made up for it.  Please enjoy this week’s Photo Journal!

1.  I don’t know what or why this is, but it was on Hudson this weekend and it was awesome.  This boat knows how to party.

4.  Suzy had never been to the Met before, so we spent most of the day together there. This exhibition, China Through the Looking Glass, was incredible. It reminded me a lot of Alexander McQueen’s Savage Beauty exhibition in that the vibe was dark and dramatic most of the time.
5.  Dress by Vivienne Tam, Art by Andy Warhol featuring Mao.

6.  Dior Haute Couture circa 1998 on the mannequin and a Chinese silk robe circa 1862.

14.  When there aren’t any good pictures of you there’s usually at least one where you’re not looking at the camera that’s usable.

15.  Suzy made us go to Lilly Pulitzer on Madison Ave after the museum. I sat on the couches like a parent while she shopped.

17.  This happened on Sunday night, I wasn’t expecting them at all! I was laying down on my couch reading WWD before bed and then suddenly I was being entertained! It was very cool.

17. Lots of fireworks. It’s amazing to watch them on a couch instead of wet grass and pebbles for a change!
