On Saturday I saw Savage Beauty at the Met… and I completely understand the idea behind Met Mondays now and paying extra to see the exhibit. Wish I would have done it. We bypassed the line and inside it was insanely crowded, like more crowded than any exhibit/piece I’ve seen in any museum ever. I’m glad I went, although I wanted to read all the little blurbs couldn’t get close enough. I’m familiar with McQueen’s work but there really is something to being so close to a look that you could lift your hand and feel the fabric.

My favorite pieces from the exhibition. The ensemble on the right is the one I wish I could have touched. And I’ve been obsessed with the tartan dress ever since Sarah Jessica Parker wore it to the Met years ago.
