Oscar De la Renta, Fashion Designer Icon

Hello Friends,

By now you probably have heard that famed fashion designer, Oscar De la Renta has passed, (1932-2014), in his home surrounded by family and friends, as a handwritten letter on their site have indicated. 

His death was confirmed by his second wife, Annette De la Renta. Born of Dominican and Puerto Rican parents, Mr. De la Renta's designed could be seen on celebrities from Sarah Jessica Parker to Oprah to the First Lady Michelle Obama.

What some of you may not know, is that Mr. De La Renta did no only designed dress for celebrities, but he also designed jewelry, purses, perfume, table setting and entertaining accessories, and a line of carpets with Elson & Company. To read more about the go-to designer visit oscardelarenta.com. I gathered a few of Mr. De la Renta's collection, also my favorites. #RIP

That's a just a few. I know some may say, 'well I can't or couldn't afford a De la Rental design,' but to me it demonstrate more than just celebrity designer, it also tells me to follow my dreams, my goals, my heart. Like the quote says, success is never a straight line and you have to put in the work.  I have encountered so many talented crafty ladies since I started this entrepreneurial journey, that I have been in awed and inspired. So use his work as an inspired guide to yours. Remember inspiration may come from nothing to everything.

With love,
