yesterday i spent the afternoon at the de young with some friends. i was waiting for the david hockney exhibit for a couple of months so i was really excited to check it out. it was amazing! seriously, i was smiling the whole time. as a matter of fact, i think i’m going to have to check it out a second time before the exhibition ends in january. going to museums is a favorite pastime of mine. therefore, i finally took advantage of the teacher discount and got a membership to the de young and the legion of honor. now i can go as often as i want and special exhibits will not cost nearly as much. also, i figure when i start graduate school (still applying… stressful) i can study at the cafe and then walk around the museum afterwards. win/win.
i thought this graphic rainbow colored painting was the perfect backdrop for an outfit shot. ah, i wish i could hang it in my apartment. anyway, i’m off today so it’s time to take advantage of the weather and go for a hike. tata!
a few weeks back i was walking down melrose with my mom and sister when i was stopped by a photographer who works for vogue japan for an outfit photo. they chose my outfit and posted it here on vogue japan! i just have to say this news made my afternoon!
my friend rachel and i went to outside lands a couple of weeks back. rachel was given a vip wristband and i used my friend’s ticket… woo woo! rachel and i had an awesome time hanging out, eating a bunch, and meeting new people. i have to admit that i wasn’t the hugest fan of most of the bands that played, but i still danced around anyway. it was sort of a bro fest when red hot chili peppers went on and i was hoping that they would play more from the blood, sugar, sex, magik album (the only album i really like). they still sounded good live, offered up some 90’s nostalgia (i’m obsessed with the 90’s as of late), and we got in for FREE so i can’t complain. rachel and i had so much fun together (thanks, rach!!). all in all, it was a memorable adventure!
i’m big on birthdays. last year i kinda went over the top celebrating my birth with two dinners and a brunch. so when my dear friend anne’s birthday rolled around and she said she wasn’t doing anything, i wasn’t having it. i planned a little birthday dinner for her at local kitchen & wine merchant in soma. it was the perfect gathering of friends, the food was delish, and most importantly, the birthday girl had a lovely time. oh, and i tried the local hound (a ketel one and grapefruit concoction). best cocktail ever, y’all!
ah, i had the best saturday afternoon. i headed to the contemporary jewish museum where i checked out the allen ginsberg beat memories exhibit and grabbed lunch at wise sons jewish delicatessen. so good! it was the perfect way to spend my saturday afternoon. later in the evening, i met up with my bestie amy for drinks at foreign cinema and then we enjoyed a nice dinner at radish. we spoiled ourselves for the evening.
now i gotta start getting ready for tomorrow… the first day of school. this is my seventh year and i still get a little anxious about the first day. haha. wish me luck!
it’s been a bit since my last post. i’ve been so lazy when it comes to blogging lately. anyway, these photos were shot at the legion of honor- such a beautiful museum. i plan on hitting a few museums before heading back to work in a couple of weeks. hopefully i will get some posts out of my visits. till next time, ta ta!
