Hello everyone! It's another frigid and frosty day outside here, so I'm throwing it back to when I took cover in the art museum. Although I'm at the museum every week (working in its Education department, which I love!), I rarely get to take my time walking around. This time we went for the Kara Walker exhibit, who is one of my absolute favorite artists. I thought it only appropriate to wear a piece of art...this amazing bodysuit by Samantha Pleet borrows from one of my most loved artworks, this Middle Ages tapestry of a unicorn:

I've been lucky enough to stare in awe at this piece in the Cloisters on numerous occasions! I was also lucky enough to get Samantha Pleet's dress version of this for Christmas, but that didn't stop me from going ahead and getting the bodysuit version, too. Uh, it's all in the name of my love for art?
