With several new exhibits, and various free admission days*, it’s a great week for museum hopping. This Sunday, take a free historical tour of Bali, at the Asian Art Museum. On Tuesday, double-up with free entrance to the Fine Arts Museums of SF. The de Young has already drawn a celebrity audience with Balenciaga and Spain, while the Legion of Honor continues with Pulp Fashion: The Art of Isabelle de Borchgrave.
Indulge in culture and celebrate design with a well crafted outfit of your own. This week, we’re opting for a soft, spring palette, with two key trends: florals and convertible handbags.

Photos and footage behind-the-scenes of Broadway and Hollywood will accompany the conversation.
