Study in Black and White

Last weekend, we went to the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. Not only did we go to see the museum but we also went to a hear a lecture about food served in the court of King Henry the VIII, which was accompanied by some actual food and drink from the time period. While this black and white sweater dress is definitely not something from the Renaissance, I think there's something quite artistic about it that makes it perfect for a stroll around a museum such as the Getty!

The Getty Museum is located on a hilltop in the Santa Monica Mountains. Guests have to take a tram up to the museum and on the way up there's some beautiful views of the city that are almost as fun to enjoy as the art in the museum. Once you're at the top of the hill and at the museum, there are even more beautiful views to take in from various vantage points. As you can see from the photos, the Getty Museum was built from travertine stone that starts to emit warm honey tones in the late afternoon, which is when we went. Overall, among the view, the art, the lecture, and the food, it was quite a fun day at the museum. I also think that my black and white dress added an additional artistic element to the experience!

  1. That's unusual to see you in black and white! But I love it. We like museums too.

  2. I love this dress with the red bag and festive red lipstick. My brother works for the Smithsonian but I havent even seen all the museums! Sounds like fun!
    Merry Christmas!
