Saturday, my son and I went to the De Young Museum in Golden Gate Park. They had two special exhibits – Andy Warhol and Yves Saint Laurent. The Andy Warhol exhibit was mainly album covers he’d done, some photos of him, and films that he had done. I hadn’t realized Warhol even did album covers and films so that was interesting. But it was the Yves Saint Laurent fashion display that really amazed me. I’m no fashionista but the dresses were like works of art, which I guess is really what the fashion show clothes are about, more artlike than wearable. It’d be so fun to be able to just try something like that on, with all those feathers, sequins, and color.
My sister and I actually haven’t been to San Francisco yet. We’ve been spending all our time walking around Berkeley and yesterday we walked to Albany, a rather upper crust neighborhood, where we couldn’t afford to shop but it was fun to look.
