Welcome to the weekend everyone! I’m going to skip the apologies for being away and tell you what’s up at the moment. I’m currently working another job at the museum due to my boss’s maternity leave. Because this job entails also working the occasional weekend, that leaves me with little time to blog or to take pictures. We are also in the process of buying a lovely house from the 1930’s with original stained glass windows, wooden floors, original tiling in the hallway and kitchen etc, we have been looking for it for the longest time, who would have know that finding your dream property is this hard. We still have a few anxious weeks ahead of us though because our mortgage needs to be approved. So fingers crossed!
But, back to my job for a second… Each year I organise a trip for our volunteers to thank them and this year we visited Museum Voorlinden which opened last month and its Ellsworth Kelly exhibition. Honestly, one of the prettiest museums I ever had the pleasure of visiting. I’m going to sound like a Tumblr cliche but I really loved Ellsworth Kelly’s simple line drawings. And speaking of line drawings, I’m very much intrigued by the blouse in the picture. Although I’m personally not into prints, this particular piece of clothing really drew my attention. It reminds me of those delicate Matisse and Picasso portraits.
And now that we’re on the subject of clothing, I acquired several new things and renewed my love for some older pieces such as my Isabel Marant pea coat from 2011. Sometimes I wonder if I need to get rid of things that I haven’t worn in a while, like the aforementioned coat. But when it comes to my more expensive purchases, they always prove to be smart investments which I only need rediscover from time to time. I’ll try and show you the purchases and coat soon!
Any pieces of clothing or accessories that you recently rediscovered?
