Christian Dior from Paris to the World Exhibit


Dior currently has an exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art that has been going on since May and will end at the end of October. I have been dying to go to this exhibit and finally had the opportunity to visit with my college bestie, Jeanna, on Saturday. There are four main rooms or quads as the call them, of stunning pieces by Dior. Each room has at least one television showcasing footage from a runway show or celebrities wearing Dior's designs. There is so much to look at in each room, its absolutely breath taking.


 There is a discount on special exhibit tickets for college students if you bring your student ID.

The Entrance/Exit


 Room 1
















 Hall 1





 This wall was one of my favorite parts of the exhibit.

This is the mood board created for the dress pictured above. It was so cool to see the thought process that came before creating that beautiful dress.

 Beading swatches were displayed in cases in the hallway between quads. These two beaded pieces are from around 1950, they aren't exactly sure what year.

Room 2






















 These dresses were all worn by celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, Rhianna, Jennifer Lawrence, and others at award shows.


























 























 Room 3 (The Black Room)
 My favorite part of the rainbow exhibit!
 This room was called the black room. When you walk in it's dark and the walls are black but displayed along the walls are amazing fashion photography pieces that were in advertisements and magazines. Sadly, we weren't allowed to take pictures of any of the photographs but they were beautiful. Behind a dividing wall, in the back of the black room was this rainbow exhibit (the only part of the room that we were allowed to take pictures in) and it was so pretty!

The Dior exhibit is stunning and I highly recommend visiting if you're in Dallas before October 27.

My 21st Birthday + XOXO Dining Room Review

Last month I celebrated my 21st birthday at one of the most Instagramable restaurants in Dallas! If I were a restaurant, I'd definitely be XOXO Dining Room. From the pink building, to the picture-worthy garden, to the DJ's music selection, it could not have been a more perfect place to celebrate my 21st. 

5 Audrey Hepburn Movies Free to Watch With Amazon Prime

It rained the entire Memorial Day Weekend here so I spent the long weekend watching movies. Audrey Hepburn is my favorite actress so I spent the weekend binge watching classic movies starring Audrey. I came across five of her movies on Amazon that are free to watch with Prime and thought I would share in case you're in need of a rainy day movie too.

TJ Maxx Dressing Room Try On!

I did some more shopping but honestly are you surprised? My Step mom, MB and I went to TJ Maxx in search of some Lilly Pulitzer at a good price and I hit the jackpot! And I took pictures in the dressing room to do another try on! 

Spring Break Recap!

My spring break ended Tuesday so I thought I would share a little bit from each day of spring break with you!

A Day at Crocodile Encounters

In my  Spring Break Recap post  I mentioned going to a petting zoo and that I wanted to do a post about the adventure and that's what I am sharing with you today! The petting zoo was actually an alligator petting zoo that had other animals as well. The place was called Crocodile Encounters and it's near Houston. I must say that it was a bit sketchy (it was in some one's backyard!!) and I was a little bit nervous going in but it was a ton of fun! When you get there you enter through the gift shop where you can buy crocodile food that you can throw to them and lettuce you can feed to all of the other animals so we bought some to feed the animals. We didn't spend but a couple of hours there because this pale girl was quickly burning and I didn't want to be the color of a lobster the next day. And don't forget you can click on the pictures to view them larger!
