High Style at the Legion of Honor

We recently visited the High Style exhibit at the Legion of Honor. All of the sartorial items are on loan from the Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection and are from 1910 to 1980. Here are some of our favorites:
Hand crafted shoes featuring antique lace

Evening ensembles with antique lace by Callot Soeurs, ca. 1913

Schiaparelli insect necklace

Evening ensemble by Sorelle Fontana, ca 1954 for the film Barefoot Contessa

Intricate Dior detailing

Tiger print Marie Antoinette style dress

The exhibit runs until July 19th. For more information visit the museum site here.

What We're Talking About This Week

The Washington Post is compiling a list of the top American Food Cities in a search for the best.  Week #2 features San Francisco. 

With Europe over eleven hours away, we love the idea of a little bit of Paris right here in LA.

If you are looking to update your summer wardrobe, Glamour has put together an incredibly extensive guide to this weekend's Memorial Day sales.  We also always find a good deal on ASOS, which is offering 20% off this weekend - we love the romper that's pictured.

ArtPoint is hosting a cocktail party at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco tonight from 7-10 to celebrate the High Style exhibit. Tickets are available here.

 The weather is so great in LA that there's no need to escape for Memorial Day weekend.  You can have an excellent staycation with all of these events over the next three days.
