a little mix of this and that

My response to my friends who asked me what my plans for the past two days were simple - I wanted a "boring yet productive weekend." I was serious. It was go time.

Friday: an evening with fashion and fetish at the Western Reserve Historical Society

Who would really say no to this? After being emailed about the event from the social media coordinator, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to hear about fashion and fetish from Valerie Steele, director and chief curator of Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). The chat lasted about 45 minutes where Valerie showed images of early fetish magazines from the 1920s all the way to the the 90s era where Gaultier brought corsets back from the Victorian times with Madonna and her Blonde Ambition tour.

Saturday: productivity like no other

An early crossfit workout and a three-hour brunch with my aunt, I escaped home just before it started to rain again to take on my to-do list. I crossed and checked off line items and kept my weekend plans true going to dinner with friends at Humble Wine Bar.

Have you been?

Get over there on a date, for happy hour or to meet up with girlfriends for a few bottles of wine and some of the most delicious neapolitan style pizzas. It's the perfect setting with a large and open floor plan, chandeliers with wine bottles and did I mention they have charcuterie plates?

can you smell the garlic from the quatro formaggio on the right?

Sunday: it's really not a Sunday Funday without a mimosa

Sunday morning was for the sweatiest hot follow-the-yogi class at Inner Bliss Yoga to sweat out all the garlic I ate the night before and to enjoy a grand marnier, angry orchard and raspberry mimosa at Market in Rocky River.

Namaste, yes, namaste.

Disclosure: I was contacted by the social media coordinator at Western Reserve Historical Society and offered discounted tickets to attend the Fetish show. And, yes, I'm so glad I decided to go because it really was amazing to see a fashion historian up close and personal.
