Tomorrow is the last day to see the Charles James exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, and if you can squeeze it in, it’s definitely worthwhile. I went today and realized that photos of James’s uniquely structured ballgowns do not the work justice. That didn’t stop me from taking my own iPhone photo of one of the Clover Leaf dresses.

I would looooove to wear something like this.

I also enjoyed the many quotes from James that adorned the mirrored walls of the exhibit. This was my favorite.

In other words, “Never Is the Next New Thing™“!

UPDATED TO ADD: How did I forget the picture of this killer dress?

I would feel like a sex-ay Egyptian mummy in this one.
