Balenciaga or Bust!

It was the final weekend of the Balenciaga and Spain exhibit at the de Young Museum in San Francisco so Maria and I ventured to Golden Gate Park on Saturday.

Karen Walker sunnies | White blazer - Gap | Black tank - H&M | Polka dot skirt - Sway boutique
Rock ring - Francesca's | Jan Michael's Lion Head ring | Double finger ring - F21
Vintage tassel necklace | Rebecca Minkoff 'Everday' tote - Vintage huarache flats

The exhibit was breathtaking and inspirational. Those dresses have me longing for silk, Chantilly lace, ruffles, and bows! It was hard to pick my favorite but two pieces in particular stood out to me. There was a pouffy white taffeta evening dress with a red carnation print from 1956--I want so badly to wear that dress right now! The other piece was a scarlet-colored silk evening coat with capelet collar from 1954. The color is amazing and the entire thing is so perfect!  Swoon!

Hope you had a lovely weekend too!
