Its hard to find performance wear that is also fashionable and sexy. But hello! I discovered Lisa Marie Fernandez on the Co-op floor at Barneys New York. I was immediately drawn to the fabric - thick neoprene (yes! the kind of material you see in wetsuits). It is supposed to be a swimwear collection, but I loved all the pretty dresses. The material is supposed to look better when it is wet...now this is very intriguing. I can describe it as close to the Herve Leger bodycon aesthetic but darker and sportier.

I took my little sister to the Natural History Museum on the UWS. The first and last time I had visited this particular museum was around 10 years ago when my mother took me. The revisiting experience was fascinating because I had such detailed flashbacks when I was walking from one exhibit to another, especially the sea animal part and the minerals room. Nature has so much beauty, and understanding the chemistry behind the formulation of these beautiful minerals is pretty exciting. I took some pictures of my favorites, the yellow ones really caught my eye!
