stay : four
crepes @ the market on the MCA plaza
modern art @ the museum of contemporary art
shopping @ topshop, west elm and the amazing jayson home and garden
Started the day at the MCA (it’s free on Tuesday’s for IL residents!) and stumbled on a little farmers market out front. So I picked up a crepe and took in the scene before heading in to see some modern art. Still find most modern art confusing – meaning I do not always understand the statement the artist is making. Even the photography is a stretch sometimes. That said, they had two full rooms devoted to comic strips – that was fun – and a few works by Paul Sietsma that I enjoyed.
Then I popped into Topshop for the first time – I see outfits online and TV that often reference Topshop, so I wanted to see if they had anything that would appeal to me. I’m not very “trendy” with my style – more sport classic, more Ralph Lauren … know what I mean. But, I did find a couple of pieces of interest (still in shades of black and white). Then to West Elm where I picked up a couple of kitchen goods – I could really buy everything in that store!
And Jayson Home … it’s a must for any interior design fan! It’s wicked expensive, but beautifully curated and they have even started bringing in Flea market finds. Today’s funny flea – life preservers. Now… I want to see where those things end up!
