my girlfriend christine and her daughter sofie came for a quick visit to philly! christine is an art and photography teacher at Sparta High School. sofie is an amazing ballet dancer & wanted to go to The Rosin Box for new pointe shoes. who knew how beautiful ballet shoes are!

sunday morning we went to the Perelman Building - Philadelphia Museum of Art to see the Patrick Kelly : Runway of Love exhibit . I LOVE THE 80's!!!!!!!!!!!! " Patrick Kelly became the first American & first black designer to be voted into the prestigious Chamber Syndicale du Pret-a-Porter des Couturiers et des Createurs se Mode ,the French fashion industry association &standards organiztion. his wok pushed racial & cultural boundaries with golliwog logos, Aunt Jemima bandana dresses, and black baby doll brooches. kelly's brilliant vision and career were cut short by AIDS,to which he succumbed in 1990."
