Style is Power meets Knowledge is Power

When you come to Grand Rapids there are many things to do.  Especially if you want to learn about things like Lola and I did this past weekend. We wanted to go to the most famous and well-talked about Museum in Grand Rapids, the Van Andel, or Grand Rapids Public Museum. This museum is great for people of all ages to come and look around and learn! We had a great time walking around the “Old Grand Rapids” exhibit in the museum. We saw what it looked like to be in Grand Rapids in the 1800s. It is hard to imagine that that is really what life was like in that time.


The Grand Rapids Public Museum has many exhibits to look at; including special exhibits like the Titanic and Dinosaurs at one time. There is even a planetarium that they put on star shows and also a carousel that people can ride any time! When you look across the Grand River, the lights of the carousel are what you will see.

We wanted to keep it casual but still look feminine to come and look around the museum. Lola wore an AMS Pure sweater with a blurred floral pattern in camel and black that she put together with a silver Tribal jacket and a black Rayne styled Kendra Scott necklace. What really brought her look together was the Sacramento colored DL 1961 denim.


I wanted to brighten up the day a little bit my look with a Nanette Lepore interwoven jacket in orchid with a begonia colored  Michael Stars top. These I paired with a black 10 Crosby Derek Lam skirt with a leather pleat. The workers, especially in Old Grand Rapids really loved our outfits. They talked to us for a long time and one of the volunteers, Nancy, took a picture with us! Everyone here was very helpful and nice. This is a great place to come and learn about the history of our city!
