heaven. I'm in heaven.


Okay remember when I asked you to guess where I got to go (and got only TWO guesses...come on guys!) . Well... here are some pictures from our fun expedition!! My fashion design class got to go to the University of North Texas and tour their clothing collection (which begins in the 1800's)!!! There were rows, and rows, and ROWS of clothes! I was seriously drooling (well, not really)...


There were hats from all SORTS of time periods (above I believe was the 20's and 30's!)...


And SHOES...*sigh*


I absolutely LOVE this green dress (from probably the 50's?)


And there were all sorts of originals (Christian Dior, above), plus Chanel, Valentino, etc!


There were some CRAZY furs, like the jaguar coat above and there was an actual MONKEY fur coat!! It was SO cool!!! :)


above: 1800's wedding dress (I'm guessing around 1840-50s?)


above: HAND BEADED PURSE!!! I can't imagine.


Anyways. More pictures to come. Let me know which your favorites were! :)

I like the title! Did you get it from the song Cheek to Cheek?
