The Palace of Fine Arts was constructed for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition. It was one of ten structures featured in the fair, which also included exhibits of Education, Liberal Arts, Manufactures, Varied Industries, Agriculture, Food Products,Transportation, Mines and Metallurgy and the Palace of Machinery. It is one of my favorite places to visit in San Francisco. My outfit is inspired part by Bernard Maybeck's architectural design and part by 1960s silhouettes. Dresses and blouses with intricate paisley patterns are my favorite pieces for the upcoming season. This lovely blouse is a recent purchase from Pretty Penny, a must-see vintage store located in the Rockridge District of Oakland.
