The Azalea Trails

This past weekend, the River Oaks Garden Club presented the Azalea Trails event that was hosted by two MFAH house museums, Rienzi and Bayou Bend, as well as five other locations.

Though I am a native of Houston, I had never been to the Azalea Trails or even Bayou Bend before this past weekend. I am glad, though, that I finally went and checked this event out over the weekend, otherwise I may had never known how beautiful the grounds at Bayou Bend truly are.

Needless to say, I will definitely be make more trips to Bayou Bend now that Spring has come and enjoy the nice weather while I can.

“The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta” Exhibit

If there’s one thing that was on the top of my 2018 To Do List, it was to go see the Oscar de la Renta exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.

Having grown up watching movies that were costumes by the likes of Edith Head and Givenchy, I came to love fashion and view it all as a work of art. Oscar de la Renta, in my opinion, is among the likes of Head and Givenchy. Not just because he dressed women in gorgeous pieces but because he knew it wasn’t the clothes that made the woman, but the woman that made the clothes. In his own words, “it’s not about what you wear, but about how you live your life.”

So, here’s to taking de la Renta’s advice and having a life worth living and also to the wonderful art that he created.
