Fashion and Food in Phone Pics

Friday was kind of a bust at Canton. Apparently early February is not the month to go. There were lots of sales, but not a ton of new merchandise. On Sunday, I met my friends Suzanna for breakfast at Northpark. She was in town from Midland, so I got to see her and her little boy. After breakfast we walked down to see the turtles and ducks. We passed by Louis and I loved their display so much I had to take a couple of pictures with my phone...


Can you think of anything more heavenly than a cupcake topped with a Louis?  I cannot.



Then I met up with Lisa and we headed to the Dallas Museum of Art. We had been wanting to see the John Paul Gaultier exhibit. It has been there since November and only runs another couple of weeks. We were unprepared for how crowded it was! Apparently everyone is dashing to the DMA to see it before it leaves. They didn't allow cameras in the exhibit. Here is a phone pic I took as we were waiting our turn to go inside...



I lifted some photos from D magazine to show you more examples of the exhibit...

One thing to note, the mannequins were animated...

At first, they freaked me the heck out, but then I was almost more focused on the mannequins than I was the clothing.  They were like a weird modern art installation.  Some were even speaking.

Some of the stuff was just plain outlandish. 

It was amazing to see how many hours each and every couture piece took to create.
It's hard to see but that camo dress below (first dress on the far left of the frame) took over 1000 hours to construct.  It was also interesting to see how delicate the items were.  After probably only one wear, you could see the wear and tear.  Interestingly enough, even the pret-a-porter garments looked very fragile.



 
After we left the exhibit, we went and grabbed lunch at The Angry Dog and then I headed home.  For dinner and my own private super bowl party I made chicken tacos from a Pinterest recipe...
 



They were yummy. Of course I think that the yumminess was enhanced by this giant bowl of pico I whipped up (as well as the fresh guacamole that I made)!

I think we are going to have those tacos for dinner tomorrow! They look yummy! Of course I'm forcing them to eat chili tonight because the heater came on today-I'm obsessed with chili! They will wish we were eatting tacos instead! Ha!
