In Pursuit of Fashion Part 2 Met Museum

We are visiting the rest of the exhibit In Pursuit of Fashion, The Sandy Schreier Collection, and this part is where all the fun color and designs are located! This really is a most lovely exhibit and I would highly suggest you make it a point to visit very soon! 

I just loved this to pieces. It was so beautiful in person 

I think one could get away with wearing this in 2020 

Loved these from the 1920's - they look pretty comfortable to wear 

One more angle of this dress, I just couldn't help myself 

These headpieces were to die for 

This was sweet and loads of fun 

I have always wanted to wear eggs on my dress, haven't you ? So much fun! 

Just gorgeous 

This was fantastic in person 

These paintings were just adorable and made me smile! 

Sandy Schreier is an American fashion historian and collector of couture clothing, with over 15,000 items. She has been called "the world's largest private collector of couture clothing". Her interest in fashion began as a child when she went with her father, a furrier, to the Russeks department store where he worked.

How wonderful that she is gifting so many of her items to the Met for all the world to see and enjoy. We are all quite the lucky ones indeed!
