Pop Back and Pop Art

Last week I went to the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, which is one of my favorite museums, to view an exhibit on Marcel Duchamp's influence on Pop Art. Not being one to shy away from the opportunity to "dress the part" for any given occasion, I reached in my closet for my new J. Crew Collection Tossed Dot skirt because the colors and pattern screamed "Pop Art" to me.

This skirt was definitely a piece that took my breath away when it first came out a few months ago at J. Crew. It had a lovely pattern, but it also came with a hefty price tag. Despite the price, the skirt sold out very quickly in most sizes when it was released, so when it popped back up on the website a few weeks ago in my size and on sale with an extra percentage off the sale price, I sprang at the chance to get it. It was still kind of expensive, but I justified it as an early birthday present to me, from me. It's a work of art in my opinion and definitely less expensive than picking up the habit of collecting actual art like Norton Simon had!

  1. That looks like a great skirt for the occasion. It has a cool texture too.

  2. This is so fabulous! I love the pairing of all of the primary colors on the white background! Just gorgeous.

    Thanks so much for linking up with me On the Edge of the Week. I hope to see you again this week. Have a fabulous day!


  3. What a fun skirt! Sometimes when it's a piece you love that much, and know you'll wear, it's totally worth the splurge!
    I'm terribly behind on blog reading but I loved seeing your Arts District posts too--so many cool paintings and murals!

  4. That is indeed a pop art skirt and I love it. I want it too but my gosh it is so pricey. Happy belated birthday to you though, you deserved it. That awesome necklace matched it perfectly.

    Do come by tomorrow night and linkup with Thursday Moda with me, I miss having you.

    Have a great rest of your week!

  5. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I can see why you fell in love with this skirt and had to have it. I really like your photos in front of the pond with its water lilies. It definitely made me think of Monet.


Say hello to Hello Katie! I would love to hear from you!
