Oscar de la Renta: Five Decades of Style

Last Friday, I headed east to Dallas with my friend Ashley to visit the Bush Center (President George W. Bush's Library) and to view the current special exhibit called Oscar de la Renta: Five Decades of Style.

The exhibit showcases dresses from First Ladies Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton, and Nancy Reagan, along with Jenna Bush Hager's wedding dress, dresses from de la Renta's archives, and from the collections of two other Texas ladies. And if the First Ladies aren't enough celebrity, there is a dress worn by Taylor Swift and Jennifer Garner's 2014 Oscar dress.

The hot pink dress above was from the de la Renta archives. It was absolutely breathtaking in person and was definitely my favorite. Also, there was a dress of Mrs. Reagan's from 1981 that looked like someone could have worn it to a special event that evening. So many of the designs were classic. Simply timeless! And the artistry was phenomenal.

It was the first visit to the Bush Center for the both of us, and I'll admit that we took an abbreviated trip through the permanent collection, knowing we'll be coming back with our families at some point. On a summer Friday afternoon, that section was somewhat crowded.

A little girl time was the perfect way to kick off my birthday month. If you're in the DFW area, gather your girlfriends and go check it out!

  1. We loved the Library when we visited there last year! We just wish we had more time to go through, as we got there half an hour before closing! It's definitely worth the time to go and see!
