Modern Geometry











The Denver Art Museum has two main buildings and each is done in a completely different style. The modern crystal-ish shaped titanium plate covered building pictured here is the Hamilton building which was added to the museum in 2006. It's just as angular inside which can lead to curators having to be extra creative with how to display artwork in such unique spaces. I am rather attached to the museum after my short internship spent working there over the summer of 2014. I am predisposed to like art museums anyway, I am a huge fan of almost all museums! 

I wore this black dress and fun rainbow ribbon hat when I visited the museum for their current big exhibition Star Wars and the Power of Costume. You may remember this hat as I documented how I made it here on the blog :) It was super fun to wear it at the art museum as people there were obviously interested in art to begin with so I got a few compliments on my hat which I'm not really used to. Out here in the suburbs people tend to just stare confused instead! The shoes I have on here are my latest indulgence from Royal Vintage Shoes. Called Lana, this style come in three colors and I finally caved when the black came in! They are quite comfortable like all of my Chelsea Crew shoes from Royal Vintage have been. I'm really pleased with these, and I got them for a steal using my royal rewards points which was even better!

I'm in the thick of our busiest season now at work as we enter the holiday rush. Working some extra hours may leave less time for sewing, but it does mean I can hopefully save up for some travels next year so it will be worth it in the end! I hope you all have had a great first day of December <3
