Classical Order In Cambridge


My sister and I spent a good part of our day exploring the Fitzwilliam Museum; which is so large you could easily spend an entire day in there. The museum sadly has a no photography policy and after seeing two Italian girls get chewed out (and then followed and glared at for ten minutes), I didn't quite dare to snap any on the sly. However, there's really no way to restrict pictures outdoors in the public view, so my sister and I snapped a number outside the musuem which is quite impressive itself. I would like my next home to feature massive Doric order columns...

P.S. The other evening I met up with Lizzie of Quite Quaint for some drinks quayside. We were treated to a show by some of the locals who were having a riot (i.e. getting smashed). Unfortunately, I didn't think to take pictures until it was quite dark! This photograph doesn't do her justice, but will perhaps give you an idea of her style. It was a really lovely evening.

  12. This is one of the best dresses. I like that it is tight and feminine, but with enough room to wiggle in a blouse underneath. I love it.

    It's a very chic non-USA-tourist dress.

    I love the idea of having a home with Doric columns as well. I see too many places with Corinthian style columns around here--mainly colonial architecture homes--and I think, that's overkill.

    This is a great post. You look wonderful (as always).

  20. Love the dress, it's so unusual!

  21. funny enough there is a house where i live that has quite similar lions guarding its front entrance. they are a bit smaller, but overpowering none the less. the best part is, the house is completely regular and quite small. it is quite the contrast!

  22. I love your remixing of that dress ---it's beautiful. And it's great that you were able to get a few shots of the museum outside. I hate the no-indoor-photo policy of some places.

  27. I love all of your travel updates! I was once seriously berated by a German security guard from trying to take a picture of The Kiss at the Belvedere. Terrifying but totally worth it!
