"When a woman falls in love with something so much that she wants to wear it, it is at that point that it becomes fashion." Oscar de la Renta
Today the iconic man who built an empire from scratch with fabric, thread and elegance has once again amazed us with his fabulous Resort Collection now in Stores. Even though he has left us, Oscar has made sure to pass on the torch of glamour and perfection.
The Resort 2015 Collection includes a variety of colors, vivid fabrics and elegant cuts. In this collection you will not only find the signature elegant dresses which Oscar de la Renta is famous for, but also formal business attire such as skirts and even suits.
I had two personal favorite dresses in this Collection. The first, a light pink long dress shown above (which comes in a navy blue as well) provides a more casual note. I see this dress on a woman of leisure at a lunch gathering held somewhere such as The Farm in Al Barari.
The second dress I loved is a more of a cocktail dress, very fresh because of the color combination and the print, while the long pink tail is just exceptional giving the look so much grace and royalty. The open shoulders allows us to use accessories, and Oscar de la Renta has some outstanding examples.
I love bulky colorful accessories, they are super trendy these days especially in this region, and Oscar de la Renta has them rich in color and stones. The right pair of earrings or necklace can turn a good outfit into a spectacular one, and Oscar de la Renta has a wide range of them to match any look, with this green piece being my favorite.
If you have a wedding, gala event, or even a ball and you want to look outstanding with elegance and grace, Oscar de la Renta is the place to go. After seeing so many beautiful dresses on display I couldn't resist trying one on myself! The color blue is not something I would normally consider for myself, but this fabulous dress changed my mind. I picked a shoulder-less dress with intricate blue embroidery on black lace, which gives a slimming effect on the waist, along with silk finishing and a puffy tail to add some height. It worked so well that it felt like I was attending a King's ball. For a moment I wished I could go back to Victorian times and wear these types of dresses everywhere, but only if I could take Oscar de la Renta with me.
