People around the world are paying tribute to Oscar de la Renta and the impact he had on making women feel beautiful. At age 15, my sweet mother gifted me with my very own Oscar dress to wear for an eighth grade graduation event. While my mother may not have let me wear black until age 15, at least she had the sense to dress me in Oscar! The dress still hangs proudly in my closet.
In the spirit of all things fashion, I thought I would share with you a round up of local fashion events happening through the next week that you may be interested in attending.
