Remembering Oscar de la Renta

Looking back at the many, many beautiful fashions designed by Oscar de la Renta over the years, I found myself saying, over and over, "Oh, this one was a favourite"... Then I had a moment of recognition. You see, I have always thought that there are so many incredibly talented, unique fashion designers in the world that I could not possibly choose a favourite. But, now, I know I do have a favourite designer, and it would have to be the late Oscar de la Renta. His feminine, glamorous dresses make me swoon.

His passing this week has made me cherish his gifts of beauty to the world even more than ever before. I know I'm far from alone in saying that he was truly a great designer, one whose remarkable fashions will continue to inspire us for many years to come. He will be missed.

Here are 20 of my favourite Oscar de la Renta designs. I could have included many more images, but these will have to suffice as my tribute to this beloved fashion designer.

A blissful retreat



Wouldn't it be wonderful to sit in this gorgeous poolside lounge, perhaps enjoying the warmth of the fireplace on a slightly chilly evening, sipping a glass of wine... 

Or drift off to sleep, while lazily watching flickers of sunlight glint across the pool's pristine blue surface...

I'm sure there would be a million ways to relax, if you could be transported to this blissful retreat.

Have a lovely weekend, everyone.

Fab Frock Friday | Perfect for Spring



This lovely leafy dress by Oscar de la Renta for Spring-Summer 2015 perfectly captures that joyful feeling I have upon seeing the first bright green leaves on the trees in spring. The little daisies make this dress even more adorable. I love it!

Have a delightful weekend, everyone.
