I've always heard about "The Cloisters" that is located in upper Manhattan and I finally got to visit this time. The Cloisters itself is amazing with interesting architecture buildings and best medieval arts. Along the way there is a fantastic Hudson river view with beautiful nature. I agree that it takes a little extra miles to get yourself up there but it's totally worth to visit!
It is always exciting to see The Costume Institute exhibition at Met every year in Spring. For those of you who cannot visit either because you live far away or just don’t have time go, I’m posting a lot of photos for you to enjoy! The exhibition is about reconciling the handmade and the machine-made a.k.a Manus X Machina in the creation of haute couture and ready to wear. Throughout the whole exhibition my eyes pop out of my head, it was just STUNNING with beautiful embroidery, feather work, pleating, 3-D print art, and so on. I absolutely loved every pieces.
This gorgeous dress is the center piece of exhibition. By Karl Lagerfeld from Chanel this wedding dress was designed and made with glass, crystals, paillettes, anthracite cannetilles, and gold leather leaf motifs. The medallion is super long that just covers the entire room. The design on the medallion was manipulated to give it the appearance of a randomized, pixelated baroque pattern.
These dresses are just mind blowing pieces. They are Machine-sewn silk-wool gazar with hand-embroidered plastic drinking straws. Really! They are drinking STRAWS cut by hand.
Now ready for feather work?
These dresses are Machine-sewn black cotton twill, hand-painted with gray and purple polyurethane resin and iron filings, hand-sculpted with magnets.
Issey Miyake dresses were amazing with innovative pleating technique in paper.
And... now introducing 3-D printing
These are one of my favorite pieces by Noa Raviv. Of course there are a lot more interesting pieces but I am sharing the ones I like the most.
A little ❤️ printed Love Moschino t shirt for you today. Finally, I’m going to see Manus X Machina at Metropolitan museum. Since I’ll be walking all day I wanted to wear something comfortable and casual chic. I’m very excited to share this lovely t shirt that it should be in your Spring wardrobe. I particularly like the boxy silhouette that one size fits all. The heart shape is Love Moschino’s Spring 16’ collection pattern. The hat I’m wearing is from Forever21. It’s only $16.03 (now on sale) for those of you who don’t want to break your wallet. And of course I love love love these Adidas Superstar sneakers.
It is a wedding season in May! One of my good friends is getting married and I was looking for the best outfit that is not too overdressed or underdressed. I wanted to look classy and cool so I chose a little black dress (LBD) from Rebecca Minkoff. Everyone knows a classic little black dress can’t be wrong. According to The Knot, it is okay to wear black to weddings. Woohoo~ black is my favorite color although I’m going to wear fun and bold color outfits often.
This black perforated dress was perfect! It fitted nicely not too tight and not too loose. I especially liked the fluted sleeve that made the dress look lovely.
Oh my... I couldn't choose which one to eat. They all looked deliciouso!!!
These earrings made point to my overall look with just right size to catch people's attention. I got so many compliments on that day.

When I was visiting Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris where Jim Morrison and Frédéric Chopin were buried, I was thinking life is too short and that’s where I thought I should do something I really love and creating this blog came in mind. I am very excited and blessed to share my journey with you. I must say I am an introvert but not when I share things I love and have passion about.
I hope you enjoy reading. Without you I cannot go forward.
