I went to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston with my mother today. We couldn’t have picked a better day. It was beautiful out, almost 60 degrees.
We went to see Hollywood Glamour: fashion & jewelry from the silver screen. We try to see every fashion exhibit that comes to town. This one was small, but lovely.

This is what the room looks like when you enter. They did a lovely job arranging things. There are designs by Coco Chanel, Edith Head & others.

These were my two favorite pieces, both designed by Travis Blanton. On the left, a silk crepe, silk chiffon & fox fur hostess gown worn by Marlene Dietrich in Desire. On the right, a silk chiffon gown embroidered with glass beads & lame thread worn by Carole Lombard in No Man of Her Own.

Definitely worth checking out if you’re in the area.

I've been wearing these jeans a lot lately. They're so goddamn comfortable that I keep trying to pretend I can wear them all year long.
I live in Massachusetts, though, so that's not only unrealistic but also kind of delusional.
But we had a seasonal aberration today: 60 degrees on the Sunday before thanksgiving (not a record, or anything, but plenty weird). So I decided to take advantage & break them out one more time.
I'm sure in a month I'll try to convince myself they can be worn with tights. I'll get dressed, make it all the way to right outside my door & then realize that no, it's twenty degrees out & even with the magic of layering, it'd be crazy to wear them.
I should probably pack them away to save myself the trouble…
