When my friend Kelsey asked me if I would want to go check out the Guo Pei: Couture Beyond exhibit at SCAD with her - I screamed a bit inside. I’ve lived downtown for over a year but (embarrassingly) haven’t been to any of the SCAD museums yet. The perfect girl’s afternoon was born. Kelsey hosted an event at Thread & Onion, a local boutique and I met her there. I was so impressed with this boutique - I got one top in three different colors and a chic & smart red dress. I will definitely be back there. Everything is designed by SCAD alumni and made in Savannah.
We lunched at Soho (you must get their grilled cheese & tomato soup combo - I always get collard greens on the side). After lunch we went to the Guo Pei exhibit. If you aren’t familiar with Guo Pei - maybe this Rihanna dress from the Met Ball 2015 will catch your attention. There were only a handful of pieces on display in Savannah, however the guides told us that in Atlanta they have around 50 pieces - so definitely check that out if you’re in the A.
After this exhibit, we went over to the actual SCAD Museum of Art and toured the exhibits there - so fun. I decided to go with a full-on “LOOK” for this outing. I recently got this Zara sweater dress and thought it would be cute paired with Chanel shoes, tights & cap. When it gets a bit warmer I will ditch the tights!
If you aren’t already following Kelsey - you must do so now! She’s got a smart mouth & amazing style. Her blog is called Pardon My French and we met through Instagram (where most of my new friends come from now). This blogger & mom of 4 is currently kicking cancer’s ass. She had a double mastectomy on Friday and I am just so proud to call her my friend. She really is so strong and has the best attitude about everything. So inspirational.
Thanks Kelsey for the fun afternoon and we will do it again soon!!! Outfit details are linked at the end of the post.
