My last Peru post. I can’t believe it’s almost been a month since I returned. The excitement hasn’t died down, but I definitely know that I’m back in LA.
We went to the Pedro de Osma Museum and took a tour. It was fascinating – you can read all about the history of the museum here. This bench was outside – I felt really important sitting on it, like I was untouchable. Kind of like a queen.
My entree’ consisted of lobster mixed with a type of lettuce, mango, red peppers and a few other tasty treats, all sitting in a foam-y truffle oil. It was so decadent and I believe the words that came out of mouth went something like “This is the best thing I have ever eaten in my life.”
I bought this poncho in Lima. I am in love with it. It’s all handmade and fits really short on me. I’ve worn it once with charcoal harem pants and some bright purple and mustard yellow tango shoes that I bought in Buenos Aires a few years ago. It’s definitely a statement piece so I have to be careful with accessories – the ethnic look can be overpowering if I’m not careful. Long gold necklaces work well!
I also left Lima with this work of art. I about died when I saw this in a little shop in Barranco. It is all handmade from vintage silk. The embroidery and the beading is exquisite. I LOVE the baby pink tassels at the bottom. And the shape? Insane perfection.
