Andy Warhol to De Kooning; The Art Gods Are Calling

Hello Weekenders!

I have been craving some museum time as of late; the art gods are calling. In San Diego we have had a small collection of paintings from a wide range of artists showing at the San Diego Museum. One of my favorite artists is Willem de Kooning and wow the painting on show did not disappoint, I stood for a good 20min just studying every layer, brushstroke and color. I would have taken photos, but it was a no camera zone (I did manage a sneaky pic of the Andy Warhol Soup Cans).

 A good friend of mine gave our family some passes, but honestly it was super cheep to get in so we've decided to make the art pilgrimage once a month as a family. Balboa Park is having its 100th Anniversary so the place is booming with activities for all.

 I decided to get a little dressed up thanks again to the February style challenge presented by Hillary Rushford of Dean Street Society. Today’s theme Gorgeous in Green! Now I have had this dress sitting in my closet for over a year, tags still on. My hesitation to wear this dress was I have gained weight and it’s a body con dress as you see. I just said “what the hell Let’s Do This”  If Jane Mansfield, Marilyn, and Kim Kardashian can rock the curves, than so can I.

 My necklace is a special piece as my husband gave it to me for the Holidays and I’ve not had a chance to wear it. It looks like a J Crew statement necklace but it’s actually from Ch√Ęteau Bel Age in San Diego, needless to say he’s thrilled to see it on. My grey patent leather purse is Vintage circa 1950’s and the shoes are a new favorite via Target during the holiday sales. I feel sure these will get tons of uses this spring/summer 2015 fashion season.
