What I Love Wednesday

This week it is all about geometric shapes and patterns.  I have been dying to go to The Getty Villa lately and if you haven’t been I would highly recommend it.  It is right off of PCH, on a hill, overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  The views are spectacular and the “villa” itself is unbelievably remarkable.  As soon as you enter, it feels like you have stepped into an Etruscan villa in Pompeii and it is filled with Greek and Roman artifacts.  Greek art is known for its geometric motifs on pottery,  glass and in frescoes and these shapes and lines easily transfer over into fashion.

  1. It is so worth the drive, despite the lousy 405 traffic that never seems to go away. The only downside is your visit has to be planned. Parking is limited and you have to reserve a time to go.
