Accessorizing for the Met Museum, Schiaparelli Prada Exhibition

There's nothing like spending a Sunday afternoon at the museum. Yesterday, I finally saw the Schiaparelli Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. If you love fashion, history, and powerful women, take your sexy Prada-heeled self to this exhibition. I'd like to add a note of admiration for the geniuses that came up with the frame work for this exhibition, curators Harold Koda and Andrew Bolton, who were inspired by Miguel Covarrubias's "Impossible Interviews" published during the 1930s in Vanity Fair.


Frederic Fekkai leather flower head piece - I got this at an event or some gift bag nearly ten years ago and never had the conviction in my fashion choice, to wear it out. A date at the Met with two powerful ladies was all it took. 

Prada Accordion Frame Bag ($3195) - my version is sold out, but check out this lovely tan/yellow option with white piping   

Tory Burch Emmy gold sandals ($195)- purchased two years ago in shinny gold leather, now they have it in tumbled leather 

Bolbach python cuff ($120)

Apparel … not as important: 

T.J.Maxx polka dot blouse ($12.99) 

T.J.Maxx white jeans ($19.99) 

R to L: Prada Autumn/Winter 04/05 printed trompe l'oeil pleats;  Elsa Schiaparelli Vogue  1937
R to L: Prada dresses Autumn/Winter 08/09; Schiaparelli butterfly evening dress summer 1937
