I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - Power Mode: The Force of Fashion

What: Power Mode: The Force of Fashion

Where: Museum at FIT
             227 W. 27th St.
             New York, NY

Who: Teens and Up

When: Through May 9, 2020


Mom - The latest exhibit at the Museum at FIT is all about power who has it, who wants its, and what can be done with it all of  which is channeled through the power of fashion. There are clothes that convey power like power suits and power heels, clothes that convey status like "It" bags, clothes that convey an attempt to exert power like shirts spouting various causes, and more. In this exhibit unlike many exhibits at the Museum at FIT, men's and women's fashions are mixed as are fashions from different periods of time. There are several different sections of the exhibit. There is a section that focuses on miltary power and how miltary uniforms have transformed into fashion. The second section focuses on the power of status. It focuses on clothing that could be considered status symbols like products covered with logos and must have bags. Next, the power of suits is examined and how suits have evolved and why. Then, there is a section on resistance clothing. This section includes clothing promoting various causes like Women's Rights or Black Lives Matter. The last section is devoted to clothing that is sexual charged and included things like corsets and fetish related clothing. This exhibit, like all Museum at FIT exhibits, is completely free to visit and  is open Tuesday through Friday. The exhibit will run through May 9, 2020 but will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
