With the amounting stress of first semester senior year, I've been having to cram like it's my job. For some necessary relaxation, I visited the L.A. County Museum of Art (LACMA, for short) for my English Mirror Themes class with my incredibly awesome and down-to-earth friends, Jacky and Alison! For those of you who don't know this particular museum, it's absolutely breathtaking. ( Look for yourself! :D )

Last year, I visited the Lacma for my art class to see the Tim Burton exhibit which was the absolute perfect synthesis of dark eeriness and child-friendly humor. This time, I went to see Carravagio's paintings which highly excited me because of his grim and demented personality. Overall, Lacma included a range of art pieces from black and white life-size landscape photos to rows of plaster cylinders (5th picture).
After strolling through the Carravagio exhibit, me and Jacky whipped out our iPhones and my touristy lets-take-pictures-of-everything side definitely came out. Alison, on the other hand, took out her oh-so nifty polaroid camera that I'm blatantly envious of to take some "candid" shots. After slyly analyzing the bizarre yet creative poses we spotted in the corners of our eyes with the rows of lamp posts, we decided to try and imitate them. As you can see, I ended up making a complete fool of myself and leaving with some bruises.
Once we left, we went to Old Town Pasadena and bolted to any closed doors for warmth (well at least I did!) which included Islands, Crossroads Thrift Shop, and Forever 21. Looking around F21, I noticed that there was a plethora of pastels. One of the many aspects I noticed about F21 was that the colors in the store, amid the seasonal changes, are always pale mint, cream, and a blush pink. I also noticed all the embellishments that were featured throughout the store which included scattered pearls and diamonds on sweaters or concentrated areas of focus on tips of collars.
Have you noticed any store trends? (:
How was your weekend?
