"We have to celebrate all that women have achieved in such a short period of time. This is the most exciting time to be dressing a woman. Never before has a woman been so in control of her destiny. My inspiration is always the anonymous woman on the street, the woman with a busy, full life. I think about her needs and what she will want to wear. My role as a designer has always been to design clothes that address a woman’s life and make her feel beautiful - that is what continues to inspire me creatively…”
Oscar de la Renta, in an undated interview with Vivian Chen
Designer Oscar de la Renta (1932-2014), working with American débutante Beatrice Lodge, c. 1956.
Things never happen on accident. They happen because you have a vision, you have a commitment, you have a dream.

I’m not a misandrist, but a few quick questions:
If men can’t even make their own sandwiches, why are they allowed to make bills in congress?
If men can’t control their own sexual urges, why are they allowed to control nations?
If a woman’s legs/shoulders are enough to distract a man, how can we trust them to stay focused on things like open heart surgery or judging a murder trial?
Again not a misandrist, some of my best friends are guys and i’m even dating one.
