DVF { Journey of a D r e s s }

dressHappy Fashion Friday everyone!!!  

Last weekend my girlfriends and I headed to LA to celebrate my beautiful friend { & bridesmaid } Adrienne’s birthday.  Even though the weekend is about the birthday girl, I snuck in a little fashion field trip.  I have been wanting to see the DVF-Journey of a Dress exhibit since I knew it was first showing in Los Angeles.  I persisted that the girls go exhibit sight-seeing with me.  It was well worth it!IMG_0782

I have been a fan of Diane Von Furstenberg ever since I bought my first wrap dress { over 10 years ago!! }.  She has been such a powerful inspiration for me as a women working in the fashion industry myself.  You can’t love fashion without loving DVF!  She broke all the rules.  Creating a sexy, strong, and SMART women with her forever timeless wrap dress.
