Stripes, Sheer and a Bow at LACMA

This weekend was by far the laziest weekend my boyfriend and I have had in a long time. And it was glorious – beyond relaxing. We cuddled up on the couch and watched back-to-back movies (without any electronic devices in hand), made dinner at home and walked over to The Grove for some shopping.

On Sunday, we strolled over to LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) to see the new, highly publicized outdoor installation, Levitated Mass by Michael Heizer. Considering that the museum is just a few steps away from our apartment, we don’t go nearly enough. We walked down the installation’s slot which slopes 15 feet from either side, creating negative space between the massive rock and viewer as you get under it. Being able to walk under a 340 ton boulder definitely makes for an impressive spectacle (photo below).

The artist came up with the sculpture in 1969, but it took him decades to find the right boulder (and funding!!). Transporting the rock from Riverside County in California took 11 nights (a normal trip would take a few hours) on a specially designed trailer. This explains some of the sculpture’s whopping $10 million price tag. If you are near, it is worth checking out.

I don’t know about you, but I am pretty excited about a mid-week holiday! Looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow and then going to a BBQ.

Striped top: Gap, sheer, pleated maxi skirt: F21 (old), sunglasses: Gucci, tassel sandals: H&M, clutch: American Apparel, bracelets: J.Crew (blue sparkle) and Jessica Elliot (bangles), delicate rings: Gorjana, Ariel Gordon, XIV Karats and Nordstrom, new, glittery iPhone case: J.Crew (love!).

Beauty note: I adore sock buns (tutorial here). I wrapped a brightly colored ribbon around the bun to add a pop of color that matched my clutch’s hot pink zipper. Matching lips to nails, especially with a striking color like this goth-inspired, crimson red, is another look I am loving.
