Friday Link Love, Vol. 13

Happy Friday friends!! I cannot believe yet another week is in the books. This week has been a little slower than normal for me, and I definitely didn't hate it. It has been a nice change of pace before the Thanksgiving holiday.

Last week, not as slow. I had an event every.single.night. Sheesh! The highlight of my week for sure was attending the Oscar de la Renta book signing by André Leon Talley himself!! I almost died when my bestie Jenn invited me to go with her. It was the best way to spend our Tuesday night!

André (former editor-at-large for Vogue magazine) wrote a memoir to his long time friend Oscar de la Renta! I cannot wait to read the book, but in the meantime I've enjoyed flipping through the pages and seeing the gorgeous images that grace throughout. If anything, the photos are just jaw dropping. They definitely do each gown or garment justice!! What I loved even more than snagging a copy of his book, was listening to André for more than two hours. He shared so many stories about his friendship with Oscar. Everyone was laughing the entire time. He was a hoot and I could have sat there all night listening to him speak!

It was such a fun evening, and one of the most exciting events I've been to during my time as a blogger. I've featured a few photos from the event in today's post!

Photos throughout were taken by Daniel Swartz via Revamp.

Now, to finish this week off strong, let's cover a little link love shall we?
