museum date at the Broad

If you haven’t heard by now the hype is gathering around downtown LA’s The Broad, a contemporary art museum by the philanthropist Eli Broad. Though you can get reservations on their online ticketing system, it’s booked out for weeks. We ended up waiting for about an hour strolling in 10:30am on a Sunday. From the infinity Room (get there early) to their Warhol/Hurst/Koons scattered through the rooms, it’s a VERY pop art-heavy collection. You can call it the Whitney equivalent of LA. But you just have to see it to see the amazing shots you can pull off across its humungous “honeycomb like” exterior. Inspired by the funky architecture of The Broad, I put together a look with volume and structure. Thank you for reading, hope you had an amazing holiday weekend! xx Melis Photos by Abel. the outfit: Fashion Bunker tunic (c/o) | Shopbop culottes (on sale here) | Saint Laurent booties (similar here) | Levis Denim jacket | Bag: Chanel
