dance your cares away, worries for another day!

Finals are over! The witch is dead! I celebrated by going with my parents and sister to the Jim Henson exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry. And because there's nothing cooler than dressing to match the museum exhibit you're going to, I went for some Muppets inspiration.
NEIVZ ring, thrifted sweater.

Lips to go with the eye ring, sent to me by Prada.
Hand-me-downed socks, boots were a gift from the woman who designs hide and co-owns ra, and the Oscar the Grouch hair scrunchie is from a birthday party I attended in like..the 5th grade.
And now! My favorite Muppets episodes from when I was little. I highly recommend the exhibit to any Chicagoans, even though it closes in two days. It was my second time going and felt just as magical as the first. Plus it's really fascinating to learn about his less popular projects, like the experimental films he made in the 60's and 70's and even just the posters he made for local businesses as a teenager. Also I wish he was my dad. (Sorry, Dad.)
