The Met: The Jacqueline de Ribes Exhibit

Recently I visited New York City with friends and of course, at the top of my itinerary, was a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  I could spend days at this museum, especially when there is a fantastic special exhibit like this one.  Jacqueline de Ribes, the French designer, socialite, and friend of designers had a fantastic collection on display!  Luckily it wasn't too terribly packed, even with this being a pre-Christmas trip!

A beautifully embroidered ivory Valentino creation.

One thing is for sure, Jacqueline de Ribes has fantastic taste.  She definitely has taken the mantra, "I like my money where I can see it, hanging in my closet" to heart!  Can we say #goals?
