I hadn’t visited Decades in Los Angeles — aka vintage-gown heaven — in forever, and I rectified that yesterday. I emailed fabulous sales associate Helena before I went in and told her I only wanted to see over-the-top designs. I believe this one was by Oscar de la Renta. I tried on a lot of Oscars on this Oscar weekend.
I think this is another Oscar de la Renta.
I know for sure this one is an Oscar. Look at the colors!
I tried on several other dresses that I forgot to photograph. That was because I was tipsy from too many glasses of rosé after a celebratory lunch for author (and former Wall Street Journal) writer Ron Suskind. Ron wrote Life, Animated about how his autistic son, Owen, re-learned to speak by memorizing Disney movies. The book became a documentary that is nominated for an Oscar tonight. The documentary category is stuffed with superb nominees this year, but, no matter what, Ron and his lovely wife Cornelia got a pair of Oscars at lunch.
By the way, I may have bought one of those Decades dresses in my semi-drunken state, but you’ll have to wait and see!
UPDATED TO ADD: Life, Animated didn’t win but watch it anyway!
