Camp: Notes on Fashion at The Met Museum

Camp: Notes on Fashion, the Costume Institute’s Spring 2019 exhibition at The Met Museum Fifth Avenue, explores the origins of camp’s exuberant aesthetic. Utilizing Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on ‘Camp'” for its framework, the exhibit examines the abundant expression of irony, humor, parody, pastiche, artifice, and theatricality in fashion.

On display at this annual fashion extravaganza, you’ll see over 250 objects dating from the seventeenth century to the present. Prime examples of the Camp aesthetic include a large variety of shoes, dresses, handbags, accessories, and so much more. The exhibit is a great way to increase your understanding of the history of fashion design.  And with all the bright, playful colors, it’s also the perfect way to punch up your Instagram feed. So, plan your outfit carefully and keep your camera at the ready for this immersive, one-of-a-kind exhibition.

The exhibition is located in The Met’s Gallery 999, and runs from May 9, 2019 through October 8, 2019.

Learn more about our visit to last year’s exhibit, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, in our post here.

2018 New York City Holiday Window Displays

I’m from, well, all over the place, having moved countless times around the country as a child. For simplicity’s sake, let’s just say I’m mostly from the midwest. Lynn is from Malaysia. So, as you might imagine, we have quite an eclectic mishmash of traditions between the two of us. This gives us reason to celebrate throughout the entire year, which is a lot of fun. However, I’ve found that what I particularly enjoy are the new traditions we’ve created throughout our journey together. One such tradition that began a few years back was our annual late-night pilgrimage to the department store holiday windows in New York City.

In Living Color: The 2018 Kobra Street Art Occupation of New York City

Updated March 17, 2019

If you’re wandering around New York City you might come across these stickers that read “Are you addicted to street art? You’re not alone. There is help! 24/7 Street Art Addiction Hotline,” followed by a phone number. It’s just a clever street art campaign, but if your Instagram feed is anything like mine, you might wonder if this is a real thing. And for months, there was a LOT of street art around NYC, thanks to world-famous street artist Eduardo Kobra.

Double the Fun: 10 Reasons to Visit the Twin Cities of Minneapolis-Saint Paul

We’ve lived in the Midwest, and we know that major cities like Chicago, Cleveland and Indianapolis get all the attention. But the thing we discovered on our recent visit to the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area is that it’s the underrated, sleeper Midwest hit that’s waiting to be discovered. Minneapolis and Saint Paul are referred to as the Twin Cities, but locals know they’re less like Mary Kate and Ashley and more like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito. The cities offer distinctly different vibes — Minneapolis is the ultra-hip, cosmopolitan twin, while Saint Paul is the charmingly historic, elegant twin. But don’t let the sibling rivalry fool you. As the saying goes: “The best thing about Minneapolis is Saint Paul, and the best thing about Saint Paul is Minneapolis.” In short, you get to enjoy the best of both worlds.
