I spent the last few days in San Francisco & the bay area. Went up to a film festival to see an amazing documentary (that I’m about to tell you all about) and turned it into a mini vacation. One of my best friends Caroline (pictured above), her great grandmother is the famous late Diana Vreeland. The film, Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel is a documentary made by her family and is currently receiving great remarks from the festival circuit from Venice to Toronto. It will be coming out in theaters in March 2012.
I had the wonderful opportunity of going to see it with their whole family. It’s incredible and beyond inspirational and I undoubtedly recommend that everyone must see it. With interviews from Manolo Blahnik, to Diane Von Furstenberg, to Oscar de la Renta, it’s really a historical view on the world of fashion as we know it. Although it will probably make you feel like whatever hard work you are doing, just isn’t enough lol. There’s also a book just released by the same name, so until you can get to see the film definitely pick up the book.
It was a fun little getaway. We rented a bright red convertible Mustang which was so much fun and cruised the city. I really love San Francisco. The weather was a nice change from LA… actually got to wear scarfs and leather jackets for a good purpose. Although I didn’t fair to well with the rain as you can probably see above lol. I picked up this scarf/thing/notreallysurewhatitis at H&M; a few months ago and have been waiting to wear it. It took me a good 15 minutes to figure out what exactly to do with it but I got it figured out and really love it.
