So this past weekend my sister Ali came to visit. We decided that we wanted to go to the MFA to see the Fashion Show exhibit, because it was almost over. We had some trouble finding parking around the MFA though, so after over 30 minutes of driving around Ian just dropped us off while he went to find a spot. He will tell you all about that
The exhibit was surprisingly interesting. Collections by Christian LaCroix, Dior, Chanel, Viktor & Rolf, Valentino and others were on display. It was fascinating to see the detail and workmanship that go into each piece. At these runway shows, you don’t always have an opportunity to see the pieces up close – so this was really neat. Of course, its haute couture, so its not like you are seeing clothes that an ordinary person would actually wear, but still, very fascinating to see how the designers can take a theme, or a certain look, and just go with it. Very Cool!
On Sunday, we drove Ali back to Spencer, where she prepared a nice Mediterranean dinner for us – salad, grilled tomatoes with mozzarella, prosciutto, rustic bread and a dish of lemon, garlic and olive oil pasta. It tasted great – especially since this was probably the first family dinner that Ali made. She finished the meal with some pears and strawberry shortcakes. Yum-O!
