savage beauty



wearing: Silence and Noise hat from Urban Outfitters, random sunnies, Lucky Brand chambray button down, Ella Moss crocheted dress, H&M overlay, Free People bag, Steve Madden boots

These photos were actually taken a little while ago on May 7th, I just never got around to posting them.
This is what I wore to see the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibit at the met. It was truly a life changing exhibit. I wish I could've taken photos but they weren't permitted. We all know that Alexander McQueen is a genius but I never realized how much thought and detailing went into each piece until this exhibit. If you're in New York until August 7th I strongly suggest you check it out.









Click on the pictures to get the look!





I wanted to find a song that had some relation to McQueen's life but they all seemed to dark for a beautiful Summer day like today (or Spring in the photos). I went with this song because 
1. I love it 
2. It still reminds me of Summer because I listened to this all the time last Summer
3. You can tell that she has a pretty messed up life from the song, as did McQueen

Cute post!!
Love your blog so much.)))

I need your help...
In August I depart to Greece on two weeks. I don't want to sit there on one place, I want to look at all most beautiful places.
You were sometime in Greece? If yes, that there it is necessary to look and where it is possible to make beautiful photos?

Thanks for earlier.)
