Hope you are all doing well!
I didn't chat much about my trip on my last post, i guess i was a bit tired from the trip.
Clearly for me what i liked best and looked forward to see in San Francisco was Haight and Ashbury and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Arts known as SFMOMA
I was not disappointed - They lived up to all my expectations!
I loved Haight and Ashbury bohemian ambiance, though the effects of gentrification are apparent the hood is a joyful mix of throw-backs, fifties lounge scene, organic and spiritual New Age Ambiance of the Sixties, punk-rock politics and computer culture.
The neighborhood was named after two early San Francisco leaders - Pioneer and exchange banker Henry Haight and Munroe Ashbury, a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.
The Dresses -
Those 3 dresses were purchased at Held Over - Oh My God! I almost fainted when i entered the shop!
The selection was incredible, it was a feast for the eyes!
I have never seen so many dresses!
This is what i purchased
70's Hippie Style
70's - I think, correct me if i'm wrong
I went twice to Haight and Ashbury - First time with Mr D- Thanks to this marvelous man - He 's not a vintage shopper but he patienly waited for me while i was trying a few dresses-
Back to the hotel, i ask him between 2 glasses of red wine - Do you mind if i go back alone?
No problem he said - Enjoy my Dear! -
Well let me tell you - Yes!- I truly enjoyed it!
I felt relieved that he didn't have to wait for me
I could completely immerse myself in my vintage addiction
I think i must have tried at least 50 dresses!
This square dancing beauty was purchased at Buffalo Exchange
The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA)
It holds an internationnally recongnized collection of modern and contemporary art and was the first museum on the West Coast devoted solely to 20th century art .
Here're some of my favorite art there
