the new look: tipped and dyed.

the new look

i’ve posted pics from maiden lane before; i love that it’s a little bit of paris or the west village in san francisco. it’s home to high end shops like christian louboutin, alexander mcqueen, marc jacobs, and chanel but there’s another gem in this two block street. the building i’m standing in front of is the v.c. gift shop, built in 1948 by frank lloyd wright. the interior has a circular ramp, and he used the building as a prototype for the guggenheim musuem that he started working on in 1943 and completed in 1959. the current owners of the space, xanadu gallery, restored the building to lloyd wright’s specifications, so it’s a treat to be able to pop in and experience not only the art, but the architecture. if you’re ever in sf, i recommend checking it out.
