cocktail hour = the cocktail dress
and such the inspiration for the Museum of Art
at Providnce's Rhode Island School of Design's
Ritual and Invention in American Fashion, 1920-1980
going on now through July 30
It's actually one of the museum's largest exhibitions
of costume and textiles
and will cover the eras of prohibition to disco....
how women dressed and defined it withe personal expression.
With featured designers such as Balenciaga, Chanel, Lilly,
Pucci and Dior,
I cannot wait to dress up, grab a drink and a gal pal and go!
