Blending in With The Guggenheim

If you read my blog post, two posts ago, you would know that I am extremely behind on updating this account.

This outfit was from January on a fairly coolish-warm, cloudy day. I wanted to recreate a photo I saw on Instagram that was taken in front of the Guggenheim Museum. The clouds created the perfect lighting for this shoot. Everything is monotone with white, grey, and black tones. The pop of blue in my bag and in my eyeshadow was a nice complimentary color.

I mixed metals in my jewelry. I love doing that. I don’t know why there is such a taboo on wearing silver and gold jewelry at the same time. My silver ring matches the metal in my bag strap, while my other gold ring matches my choker necklace and earrings.

For my outfit, I opted for a winter white look. However, I do not own white boots or a white coat, so black was the next best thing. I like the combination though, it adds dimension to the outfit.

The Museum was surprisingly empty that day, maybe because I did not visit on the weekend. After this quick shoot, I went with my friend to the cafe under the Met Breuer to sit and have a drink. Then, we walked a few blocks down to eat dessert before dinner at Lady M. They have the best desserts ever! I recommend the chocolate mousse with raspberry jelly on top and the hundred layer matcha cake.

This shoot was apart of my monument series that I had been conducting on Instagram, where I take photos in front of important or striking architectural buildings around the city. Everyone, including me, always takes photos of the Guggenheim interior, or they walk all the way to the opposite corner outside to get a full building shot. I wanted something more intimate, where you see more of the details of the building, like the circle tile concrete, or the half circle window cut-outs below the entrance.
