Happy Weekend!

My honey is away for the weekend, so I’m going to have some fun time with just me and my momma! We’re thinking of going to the Gaultier exhibit at the De Young – have any of my Bay Area readers checked it out? I’ve heard great things, and I love visiting museums with my mom! What about you? What are you up to this weekend?

  • I went to the Gaultier exhibit with my mom a few weekends ago and loved it! It was so glamorous and a perfect mom-date — you should totally go!

    Hey, I kind of resent the idea that all city hall weddings are there because the couple has no money. We got married at City Hall last year because it was the prefect spot for us. No shame in city hall!

      Hi Anne!

      Thanks for your thoughtful comment. I totally get your point – I think that City Hall weddings are absolutely wonderful completely separate from budget concerns (I had a civil ceremony at City Hall the day before my church wedding, and the choice had nothing to do with budget).

      That said, a City Hall wedding can also be a great money saver, which is why they’re so often paired with budget-friendly tips. Personally, I don’t believe that “budget-friendly” implies not-as-good, so I certainly agree with you – no shame in City Hall whatsoever!

    Saw the Gaultier show twice and you will love it. It is an over the top show of fantasy fashion, photography, video and crazy animated talking mannequins that wink, heckle, flirt and sing. Ok, i will admit that i worked on it so I’m a little biases, but I think it’s the best fashion show the de Young has done yet and that comes after incredible shows of Westwood, Yves St Laurent and Balenciaga haute couture.

    My favorite piece is a crocodile corset in the Madonna section. It is unreal.
