sea of plastic spaghetti

About a week ago my sister and I went to MFAH to see Je t'aime, Je t'aime, and also check out one of their coolest installations ever. Although the movie actually really sucked (the trailer made it seem AMAZING), the installation made up for it. I felt like i was in a sea of plastic spaghetti. Oooh, we also had an amazing dinner at Soma Sushi, which consisted of spicy ramen, sea urchin, and the most amazing sushi roll everrrrr (the creamy mermaid). It was a really great restaurant, and reminded me of a place that would be shot in Kill Bill. 

After all of that we headed over to The Place Upstairs (same owners as Replay on 19th). If you've ever seen the show Oddities, it's a bit like that. A small shop filled with magical, sometimes disturbing, treasures of the past. The rest of the night was filled with small talk with other interesting customers, vintage taxidermy, and just all together great vibes. The only thing that really bit the dust was the traffic. We knew before we left the house that the Beyoncè concert was the same night as our outing. But what we didn't realize was that almost all of Houston (the fourth biggest city in America) attended the concert. It took us a whole extra hour to get home, but overall it was worth it. 
Really wanted this lil buddy.
I can't remember exactly what this was, but I want to say it was some kind of electroshock thing?
I just really love taxidermy and animal skins, okay?
They had sooo many amazing purses. There was even one from the late 1800's!

  3. I'm sorry to hear the movie wasn't too good. The sea of plastic spaghetti looks funky though! As does the antique shop, albeit a little creepy (and a lot awesome.)

    1. Aw geez, I'm so thrilled you love my blog! I really dig you stuff (as you already know).

      The installation was really strange to walk through, because random strands would hit you in the face or get stuck on your purse, haha!
