Frivolous Friday! Los Angeles Adventure

It’s Frivolous Friday!

Thought I would share some of the fun I squeezed in this week (in between all my portrait sessions and retouching work.)

Yep, this happened #1:

Ventured up to Los Angeles for an adventure with my super fun sister in law.   We went to see the Costumes from this year’s Academy Awards.

(I’d seen a little advertisement about the exhibition at the Fashion Institute Museum and KNEW I had to see it!)

The museum is amazing – it was filled with costumes from 2018 motion pictures – including many of the Academy Award nominees!

These are from Black Panther, Star Wars, Mary Poppins, Aquaman &  RBG…

My fav was the Mary Poppins gown that had hand painted details and shading…it was amazing!

This gown was from the movie Phantom Thread – which won for Best Costume Design at Oscars!

The Costumes for Bohemian Rhapsody took center stage in this display….

Captain America was also pretty amazing – and just seeing the size of the costumes was pretty eye opening as well.  Can you believe how tiny Elizabeth Olsen’s waist is?

Yep, this happened #2:

Got hungry.  (Duh.  We are talking about hungry-all-the-time ME.)

The Museum recommended an amazing little Middle Eastern restaurant nearby.   I LOVED my chicken, sundried tomato and pesto panini with a Greek side salad –SO GOOD!

Yep, this happened #3:

After we were fortified with a  good meal, we headed for the LA Fashion District.  If you’ve never been, get in your car and GO right now – it’s amazing!

There are blocks and blocks of fabric stores and clothing stores – pretty much anything you need is there.

The flower mart is also nearby so you need to walk around there too.

Will someone please give me a reason to own one of these ball gowns???

Wondering what I bought?

Some fabric for my newborn portrait backgrounds (a soft pink and a soft blue – stay tuned for my next newborn portrait session!) and this cute little guy.  Woof!



What can I say:  I’m Feeling Blessed!

And do you know what else I’m blessed by?     Capturing amazing moments for you to treasure for a lifetime!
