The Metropolitan Museum of WHAT?

I'll bet you associate The Met with art - paintings, prints, sculptures. I'll also bet that you didn't know that the world famous museum sold gorgeous accessories! I remember when our class visited the Auckland City Art Gallery to study pop art, we visited the gift shop and they had this yummy smelling lipgloss in pop art inspired tins... If only I had a spare $5 on me that day! You can find all my favourite picks from The Met at the online store here.

Put on your dancin' shoes and get ready to be singin' (and dancing) in the rain with this adorable umbrella. If you ask me, this $25 find looks more MJ (Marc Jacobs that is!) than Met.The elegant pin on the left can be worn at formal occasions, or dressed down with a pair of jeans and a jacket. It's so Tiffany! It costs $100.
I heart that watch! It's so different to the mass of pink Guess watches that I see at school everyday. This watch is cheaper than them too - only $60. Carry all your books in one of these interesting totes - which only cost $24.95!
See! Museums aren't all that boring after all...

I found my now-favorite bag at the Metropolitan Museum a couple years ago! It has a print of a ballerina by Edgar Degas. Nice work!
