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. 

Trend Tracking: Cardigans

1  // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 Sweater cardigans are a hot item at the moment. They are most popularly worn buttoned up as a shirt but are also often seen paired with a solid turtle neck and layered necklaces. I have rounded up nine cardigans I love, all at different price ranges. One thing I love about this trend is the variety. I have some cardigans, like the ones I linked above that I purchased at boutiques and I have others that were my grandma's. I love to wear cardigans with straight leg jeans and booties or fashion sneakers.  shop this cardigan Shilo

Trend Tracking: Western T Shirts

Western and country style has been emerging more within the trendy side of the fashion world recently. Being from Texas, I think it's kind of fun.  Along with bright colored cowboy boots and cow print, you can find many popular fashion influencers wearing western-inspired graphic tees. Today I have rounded up some of my favorites that are all under $40.   YeeHaw T Shirt Wrangler T Shirt //  Cowboy T Shirt //  Cowgirl T Shirt //  Stay Wild T Shirt //  Let's Go Girls T Shirt //  Wild West T Shirt Shilo

Daily Look Vol. 2

  I've been challenging myself to style old pieces from my closet in new ways rather than buying as many new clothes as I normally would during the summer and I'm having so much fun with it!
