I Love Coke

h&m cardigan & jeans, coca-cola t-shirt, alice & olivia for payless platforms

Spent the day in Berkeley and had an amazing lunch (lobster tomato bisque, grilled ham & cheese and steamed clams). 

I just love vintage t-shirts and old Coca-Cola advertisements. Sometimes I'm convinced I'm living in the wrong era. Something about vintage advertising makes me feel at ease. It makes me imagine a simpler time when a woman never had to open her own door. A time when the men were men and the women were ladies. Perhaps those glimpses from the past reminds me of what I desire most: a simple kind of life.

All The Flowers.

I finally had the opportunity to visit the De Young museum in San Francisco to see the Balenciaga exhibit (sorry, no cameras allowed...drat!).

After the museum, P and I walked a whole twenty blocks (not really, but felt like it...especially in six inch platforms. But hey, beauty before function, so I'm not really complaining) to the Conservatory of Flowers and saw the Wicked Plants exhibit. We learned how, if consumed, some plants will not take it's poisonous effect until much later.  Funny how something so visually appealing can slowly kill you. But some of us already knew that (zing!).

An afternoon of couture and flowers can (usually) be enough to cheer any girl up.

I had a really nice tea time at Lovejoy's Tea Room, my favorite tea place. Actually, the only tea place I've ever been to. I enjoy it there so much, I'm a little too scared I'll be too disappointed to try another place. It feels so much like having tea at my grandma's house, if my grandma served tea.

Impromptu stop at a newly renovated rest stop near my house. Luckily we avoided any rest stop "lurkers". Besides, it was too early. Everyone knows they don't show up until the sun fully sets. Like vampires.
