For the Academy Awards this weekend, wouldn't it be wildly surreal and lovely to see an actor receive their Oscar wearing a design like this one, by Japanese designer Hideki Seo? So much more fun than the usual strapless ballgowns (or tuxes).

Sweetness and Light

Perfect balance. Love how Danish clothing and interior designer Malene Birger beautifully balances out cool industrial style with warm, handmade pieces. Amazing eye.

Moments of Beauty

Mysterious beauty.  This dress reminds me of one of those luminous jellyfish, serenely drifting through the ocean dark.

Happy weekend! Have a lovely one. It'll be a working one for me, but hoping to find time for a little café haunting, too. Enjoy your own.
