NEW BEDSTU BOOTS

Posted in Fashion, Shoes, Shopping with tags , , , , on November 20, 2011 by Me & Marisa

It’s been quite a while since I’ve done an actual FASHION post — so I figured it was about time (and yes, I know I still haven’t posted all of the clothes I got from Chicago, but I feel that ship may have sailed for now lol).

I just got these new Bed|Stu lace up boots and I’m completely loving them! Not only do they (in my humble opinion) look freaking awesome, they actually improve my posture too!!! Not kidding – from the instant I put them on, I stand up straighter. Haven’t worn them tucked into jeans yet to show off the boot-tongue (which honestly was the feature that talked me into buying them) but as the weather continues to get colder, I assume it is only a matter of time!

Pictures will come when it happens :). Hope you’re having a great weekend!

THE ART INSTITUTE OF CHICAGO

The Art Institute of Chicago was absolutely AMAZING! I’ve been to museums before, but perhaps it’s because I’m a little older now – whatever the reason, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all of the works that I have only seen in pictures and on TV before and I have to say, contrary to when you meet a celebrity in person; I was not let down in the least!

Here are some photos of my favorite works at the museum.

Hope you had a great weekend!

This was taken from a very high second story – I got a photo with my mom standing next to him… she didn’t even come up to this knee.No idea who the designer of these furniture pieces – but I LOVED them! And this – again, no idea on the artist, but this was one of my favorite works in the whole museumVan Gogh Self-PortraitVan Gogh BedroomThe Picture of Dorian Gray, Ivan AlbrightThe Old Guitarist, Pablo PicassoSalvado Dali, Vision of EternitySalvador Dali, Inventions of MonstersAnd perhaps the painting I was the most looking forward to Nighthawks
