Blue and Red

 I bought this dress for, literally, one dollar.  That's it.  No tax so it wasn't $1.10 or $1.50 or anything.  Well, it was UGLY too.  It started as a very long, conservative, and sequined mess. So one night, I cut it up and made it into this lovely little lace dress which is a new favorite of mine.

Another Day...

 .... Another day that I wear a blazer in Paris.  It was so cold when I went that I basically wore the same outfit (I know, terrible) every day.  At least it was a comfortable one. 

Monumenta 2011

 While in Paris, I went to the Grand Palais to see Anish Kapoor's Monumenta 2011 exhibit.  It was absolutely amazing.  These are photos of the interior, which made me feel like I was in the belly of a whale. 

 Here's a little combo post of the exhibit with my outfit for the day.  I bought this dress earlier in the day at a thrift store called Free P Star.  I must have looked like a mad woman in that store.  Two floors jam packed with all sorts of dresses and fashion goodies. 

The exterior of this piece blew me away.  The sheer size of the giant orbs inside the most beautiful building I've ever seen was something out of a dream for me. 

Fitting In

 This may be my favorite outfit that I've ever worn.  It had it all: style, comfort, and the color black.  Of course, to not look like a total widow I added some red liptick and a scarf.  Not true, I wore the scarf because I was freezing and the red lipstick is becoming a staple of mine.
