PHOTO DIARY: PITTSBURGH


Shirt: Buffalo Exchange, Belt+tights+shoes: UO, Skirt: Sissy

My weekend in Pittsburgh post! There are a lot more photos, therefor if you are so inclined, my PA photo collection can be found here.


Short clip of the takeoff


View from the hotel x Postcards from the gift shop (see: Andy & John Lennon)

We went to the Andy Warhol Museum, which is pretty prized in Pittsburgh considering he grew up there and went to the same school my sister graduated from. Photography was not permitted but there was no way I could let you guys down ;o) It totaled seven floors of pop art, avant-garde goodness. Keep in mind, all the artwork are -originals!- (A piece inside entitled Eight Elvises sold for $100 million!)


Andy & Edie



An entire room filled w giant projectors of numerous of his films





Sissy in the replica room of Warhol's Factory


His "Time Capsules"


Even the elevator in the parking structure was tasteful!

Next was Phipps Conservatory, filled with gorgeous orchids, butterflies, and floral displays.











The butterflies let us get so close to them, one even flew on my auntie's leg!

Dinner was at McCormick's & Schmidt's




And finally, Sissy's graduation from Carnegie Mellon! She was the student speaker :o)


Cardi & tights: Sissy, Dress: H&M and I cut the bottom



Reception: free alcohol! Set these aside for myself ;o)


In conclusion, here are a few shots from her beautiful home. Too bad she's moving out in a month!


First you have to go upstairs from the front door, which is adjacent to a bunch of cute little shops




Now? Back home :o)

If I go to heaven,
I'll be bored as hell

  1. Wow! What an epic post! I'd love to visit the Andy Warhol Museum one day. An exhibition of his works came to my town a few years ago (I think it was the largest Andy Warhol exhibit in the Southern Hemisphere, but don't quote me on that) and I loved it. So much so that I bought a season pass haha.

  3. Wow-The Andy Warhol Museum and CM :-) I almost applied to Carnegie Mellon for their art program. It was one of the only universities with fine arts that I was interested in...I ended up going to a regular art school anyway but I've heard great things. Congrats to the graduate and I love your style =) xoxo

  13. OHMYGOD. I would die to go to the pop arm museum!!! Major jealousy. Of course I love Andy Warhol.. but I've been quite obsessed with Edie Sedgwick since I was in high school and I saw they had a few photos of her in there too. Def putting this place on my to do list.
