About two weeks ago, my mum and I drove up to SF to see an amazing exhibit with our friend Lisa at the Legion of Honor museum. Quite possibly one of my favorite museums, (next to the Met) we were interested in a couture fashion traveling exhibit on loan from the Brooklyn Museum.
The exhibit included ball gowns, day wear, bathing suits, and accessories from major designers (think french couture and some American woman designers) from 1910 to 1980. Everything was beautifully lit, and all the costumers were still in great condition. I had seen some of these items in fashion coffee table books, but it was pretty cool to see some of these iconic pieces in real life.
After a long morning at the museum, we drove to lunch at the Beach Chalet. I had a delicious carbonara pasta with an amazing pomegranate blueberry lemonade.
We had an amazing view of the beach and the water as we ate. I would eat there so often if I lived closer to SF. It is only a 1.5 hour drive up to the city but i don’t go every often, so every time I go it feels like a fun treat!
