aCullen 's thoughts:

I recently traveled into Washington, DC, with my father and sister to visit the Smithsonian’s East Gallery. Perhaps my favorite part of this museum is a piece of work that’s not actually housed in the gallery itself: I.M. Pei’s glass and steel pyramids. (I should also note that the East Gallery, which opened in 1978, was also designed by Pei.) Perhaps Pei’s most well known work was his renovation of the Louvre, including the three giant glass and steel pyramids in the Louvre courtyard facing the Tuileries gardens, built, actually, just a handful of years after the East Galley in Washington. I’ve always loved these pyramids in Washington (I’ve been to the East Gallery about a zillion times as I grew up in Northern Virginia) and they’re fantastic for shooting photos because of the smoke and mirrors effect the reflective surface creates. You can also see the East Gallery reflected on the glass pyramids in the my photos.

What better museum outfit than this retro romper? Modcloth was kind enough to send me this gorgeous romper; it’s so fabulous. It’s fits like a charm and the lace bib is so elegant. I decided to wear my retro heels with the overlapping straps, which I felt were reminiscent of the scalloped edges of the lace bib. This may be one of my favorite outfits I have worn in a long while! I was really going for a retro 1930s/1940s look. How did I do?

So much more on my blog, Time Enough For Drums.

I also made many new additions to my Etsy shop yesterday! Visit Timely Vintage by clicking here!.

Cute vintage dress. I feel like a schoolgirl, and only want to eat the best Parisian pastries with the bright sun in the morning.
