Going to the Musée Yves Saint Laurent was at the top of my Paris list. Yves is one of the five people I look up to, admire, and call my heroes. So this was a must see.
The history of this museum is that it's actually Yves former studio!
So not only are you experiencing these amazing fashion pieces and history, but you are within the same energy as Yves himself was. I don't know about you, but that was a moment (that lasted three hours) I'll never forget.
A collection of random artistic moments within my life and the city of LA.
I got my aura photographed, and it was incredible.
When I first heard about Radiant Human I was instantly intrigued. Not only was it a cool looking photo but it was right up my alley of weirdness. Who wouldn't want to know what their aura looks like? So I jumped right on the train without much hesitation. The artist is Christina Lonsdale who's based in Portland but tours to cities with her pop-up dome, silver plated sensors and Polaroid camera. Not to mention the nicest person ever.
Once we got to the location we checked in and waited. You go one by one into the dome where Christina will have you sit down and have you place your hands on silver plated boxes. The boxes charge your body with an electromagnetic current and the camera has a ten-second exposure. Sitting still for ten seconds is much harder than I thought it would be, on second eleven I burst out laughing. Awkward silence gets me every time. Overall it was a quick, painless and extremely unique experience.
After the photo, we waited for the film to develop and dry. Christina then talks to you about what each color means and what they actually are. As we found out, this isn't actually your aura at all, it's photographing your electromagnetic field. So cool. Even though she said she's not a psychic, reader, or anything like that, she's just an artist, what she told me was very spot on. But that's just for me.
If you want to read into my photo or any of the other photos and are wondering what the colors mean, I found this amazing breakdown on GOOP. Yeah, yeah, I know...
Of course, me being me, I took more photos because the pop-up shop location was adorable. Individual Medley.
Like the little black dress we men have our version, the little black jacket. Doesn't matter what your personal style is, there is no denying the effortless cool of a black moto jacket.
The leather jacket can instantly transform a possibly "I've been wearing this for two days or so" look into a "Wow, you look great!" moment. The jacket is something you should invest in, at least once. A good leather will only get better with age and if you choose something non-trendy, it will literally last you forever.
"A good leather jacket will last you forever."
Currently, I'm obsessed with the Grease look! A simple white tee, black jeans, with white vans, wrapped up in a perfectly fitted moto (biker) jacket. Not only is it beyond comfortable, I mean come on, I'm in a tee shirt and jeans, but this outfit always makes heads turn.
So try it. Grab your little black jacket, a white tee, and find some lightning!
