Happy new week y’all and thanks for stopping by (: One of my all time favorite cities to visit is Savannah, Georgia. I am a sucker for small cities rich in culture, so if you fall into that category, it should be on your list, on a visit to Atlanta. Judging from my post here and here, it is evident that I love Savannah. So you know I couldn’t turn down a road trip with two of my girl friends there. We had talked about going for brunch and catching up locally but when one of them mentioned an Oscar de la Renta exhibit curated by Andre Leon Talley at SCAD, right there we planned our mini getaway. I love being spontaneous and doing fun things (I will save my stories for another time) but I have to admit, its gotten harder to do that with kids in the picture. Savannah is a four hour drive from Atlanta, 3.5 hours if you drive a little faster, so we were back home by 10 pm that day.
There is nothing better than spending quality time with friends and exploring a new city through their eyes. The exhibit was definitely worth the drive. I have always being a fan of the late Oscar’s work so seeing the curated exhibit in person, as a fashion lover, was an experience that I will forever cherish. I love how he celebrates every curve of a woman’s body in his pieces. His choice of fabric and designs too just blew my mind, true work of art. The exhibit showcased dresses on loan from famous figures like Oprah, Beyonce, Laura Bush, Sarah Jessica Parker to Taylor Swift. The bulk of the clothes were also from his wife’s personal collection. Imagine what it will be like to have a peek in her closet!! I hope one day to own a closet with museum worthy pieces (:
Here are some of my favorites from the exhibit

This dress was on loan from Oprah Winfrey

What word do you see?
Savannah is a foodie haven, so we ate at one of my favorite spots. This French cafe never disappoints me. Everything is just amazing!! I did some shopping too, remember the dress I got at an insane price. I can’t wait to visit Savannah again(: Do you have a favorite city you visit often?
