#OOTD: Rothko Chapel

I took a day trip to Houston with my friends, Robby & Amber, and we went to a bunch of art museums. Mainly, I wanted to go because of Rothko Chapel. It was everything I could've dreamt about and more. You can read more about Rothko Chapel here.

After a refreshing visit to the Chapel, we went to the Menil Collection and this piece was at the beginning of one of the installations. The installation was very boring but this piece was insane.

no photos please

We wondered some more and ended up at the Contemporary Arts Museum; this Andy Warhol sculpture was there!

and then we found a sculpture garden...
that's Amber

This was in the Rice Gallery at Rice University. It was popular company logos repeated, there was a video that went with it. The video felt forced to me but I enjoyed the floor part.

We caught lunch at Nippon, a Japanese sushi restaurant.

Overall, I had a lot of fun and this break was just what I needed. I was getting into a rut so this was a nice breather. I'd love to go back some time, but the drive is so far. It's not something I can just do every weekend; Houston is about 4 hours from where I live in Austin.

If you get the chance to visit the museums and more specifically Rothko Chapel, TAKE THE CHANCE. You won't be disappointed.

Formichetti Leaving Mugler


Mugler announced earlier today that Nicola Formichetti, the Creative Director, was leaving the label.

I know. Take a moment. No more Nicola x Mugler designs.

As you can see from the fact that I named my blog after Nicola, I'm in love with his work and his personality. I know this isn't the end of Formichetti's work, I just really loved the Mugler line and where it seemed to be headed. It's bittersweet because I know this is what's best for him, but I also want more Mugler designs. It's still unsure if the designers, Romain Kremer & Sebastien Peigné, will stay at Mugler after Formichetti's departure. I could tell that he probably wasn't going to stay with the label for very long after his first season where he seemed very burnt out and I just hoped that maybe it was a false observation.

I wanted to commemorate his time at Mugler and look back at highlights:
