cocktail couture

cocktail hour = the cocktail dress
and such the inspiration for the Museum of Art 
at Providnce's Rhode Island School of Design's 
new exhibition:
Cocktail Culture: 
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!


  1. I'm even MORE sold after seeing that sneak peek photo... can I be the gal pal, pretty please?!

  2. This looks like such a fabulous exhibit! If I was anywhere close, I'd be there in a heartbeat! ;)

  3. What a fun evening! If I were up in the area, I'd certainly step in to be your gal pal!!!
