I finally trekked up to the MOMA this past weekend to check out the Diego Rivera murals exhibition. I was pleasantly surprised that these powerful paintings were evening more dramatic in person. I was in awe that the scenes I once studied in text books were glittering on concrete walls. I guess I gravitate towards shiny things.
My shiny sweater—that is otherwise reserved for holiday gatherings and events of the like—gave me the upscale style of an uptown girl, while my casual pieces made me effortlessly chic. I’m a downtown/Brooklyn gal at heart, but I was dressed to cross the border of 23rd street.
Bonus: comfy booties, like these ones from Camper, alleviates museum fatigue!
STYLIST TIP: BALANCE AN OVER-SIZED OR BOXY SWEATER OUT WITH A SLIM OR SKINNY BOTTOM—OTHERWISE, YOU’LL LOOK MUCH HEAVIER THAN YOU ACTUALLY ARE. JUST BECAUSE IT’S SHINY, DOESN’T MEAN IT’S AN EXCEPTION!
