Savage Beauty

On Friday I had a half day at work. With the extra hours on my Friday afternoon, I decided to spend the (rainy and hot) day at the Met to see the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit. After waiting in line for a little over an hour, I entered into the gallery. There are no words to express the beauty, artistry, as well as vision that Alexander McQueen expressed in his designs. To be so close to his work, the quality of the work was amazing. It was one of the most beautiful exhibits I've seen in a long time. Unfortunately, pictures were not allowed inside, but I did buy a few postcards to remember my experience and the amazement I felt when walking into the gallery. Every collection had a story and I wish I had the time to walk through one more time. The exhibit is on display for only one more week at the Met, I hope those who live in NY get the chance to see Savage Beauty.

Sun and Heat

Sometimes the sun is so bright and the mornings start out already too warm that I secretly wish for Autumn to come faster. As the day goes on and twilight arrives, the temperature changes and that's when I remember why I love the summer.

This warmth surrounds me and the light changes and all I want to do is sit on my roof and stare at the stars.

Summer Dresses

I took these pictures in June, before the summer heat really started to kick in. At that time I would throw on one of my summer dresses and a cardigan and head out to go to work or my Sunday errands.

Now with temperatures rising and mornings are just as hot and humid as afternoons, I have retired my cardigans until Autumn. I am slowly melting away with the city heat and dream of weekends spent back home at my parents where trees line every street and a cool breeze blows away the intense summer heat.
