A Night Out At The Museum

A recent trip to the ROM got me in a museum kind of mood and I’m finding myself thirsting for more culture. Currently on at the AGO until August 30 is the Surreal Things Exhibition and I’m thinking of making an artsy night of it.  The exhibit features surrealist paintings, sculptures, jewellery, fashion, the list goes on… I can’t wait to see Salvador Dali’s Ruby Lips Brooch.

So, what to wear? I found the perfect French Connection halter dress that with its embroidered white swirls is a piece of art all on its own.  And for spending a few hours in the museum I found this great pair of patent cherry red flats from Aldo.

The AGO is open until 5:30 on Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. It’s closed on Mondays and open until 8:30 on Wednesdays, when from 6:00 – 8:30 admission is free. You’ll have to pay a special admission charge if you want to see the Surreal Things Exhibition on Wednesday nights.
