On Sunday my friend Jenny and I set out for a lovely day of brunch on the UES and scoping out the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit at the Met. Somewhere between brunch and the museum we were both a bit distracted, she by an amazing blush pink Luca Luca dress and me by Pretty Ballerinas, which has one of the best collections of flats I had ever seen in one place. I picked up two pairs, a gorgeous pair of white lace-ups and a pair of square toed ballet flats in electric blue.
Unfortunately, once we made it to our destination we learned that garment bags are not allowed in the Met. From what I could tell security had two reasons for the garment bag ban: 1) garment bags are too big and had to be checked - shopping bags filled with flats are, however, permissible - and 2) the Met considers some dresses to be art - rightfully so - and people are not allowed to bring art into the Met - the security guard sort of lost me there. In any case, Jenny didn't really want to check her very new, very gorgeous dress, neither would I if I were her, so our McQueen visit will have to wait until another day. I've been dying to see the exhibit, but I can't be too sad when I've got such cute new shoes. So, after leaving the Met, we walked through the park and went to check out the art at Barneys.
