This weekend my boyfriend and I made a short weekend trip to LA to visit the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. We started our morning early just so we could fit in a trip to Cafe Gratitude and Sage Vegan Bistro (two of my favorite vegan restaurants). Knowing we would be on the go all morning and afternoon meant an easy outfit was a must! The LA weather was gorgeous and summery with sunny, clear skies calling for a dress and cardi combo which is always a chic and comfortable choice when paired with ballet flats.
Although the intention of visiting LACMA was to fulfill a museum visit requirement for an art history course I’m taking, I was delighted to discover LACMA was showcasing a Diane Von Furstenberg exhibit. Fittingly so, the exhibit was a celebration of the 40th anniversary of the iconic wrap dress.
The exhibit featured dresses dating back to the 1970s which were boldly printed and patterned. It was fun to learn the history of DVF and how to the wrap dress was born and has evolved. While many DVF jersey wrap dresses are composed of silk now, you can still find a few 100% cotton dresses like the Patrice dress. Although not all of Diane Von Furstenberg’s dresses are cruelty-free, the wrap dress is still an iconic style that will never go out of style and sparked the freedom of women to express themselves through fashion in the 1970s.
If you’re in the LA area I would definitely reccomend checking out the exhibit which will be at LACMA until May 1st!
