The EMP Museum.  It's design is simply stunning.

I'm embarking on a Last Tour of the West Coast before I move to London.  First stop was Seattle to visit my best friend, made entirely possible by my soon to expire air miles.  The rest of this tour will be by car, due to my bank account's impending doom at the hands of grad school.  But despite the doom, I still managed to spend money I don't have buying beautiful clothing at Anthropologie.  They're staples, I tell myself.  They'll last me 10 years, I tell myself.  And I win the argument every time.  So now here I am, with my dreamy new turquoise linen pants.  It's a dangerous situation, but I like to live on the edge.
