Took advantage of having the in-laws around as well as a credit to Jetsetter and decided to stay overnight in NYC last weekend. The main reason for the trip was really to see Alexander McQueen's Savage Beauty at the Met before it ends on August 7, 2011. I'm so glad I was able to catch it. The show was amazing! It was almost worth the 2 hour line-up to get in. I really gained an appreciation for his talent once I saw his creations close-up. They were breath-taking! Actually, I wouldn't have minded waiting 2 hours if only the exhibit hadn't been so crowded once I actually got in. Oh, and no photographs were allowed inside he exhibit, thus my one and only crappy iPhone photo of the entrance to the exhibit. Not that those rules actually stopped some (annoying!) people inside from trying to sneak photos.
Of course, since we were already in NYC, DH and I decided to take advantage of the food as well. Here's our weekend in photos.
