Edith Head

You might have noticed that yesterday’s Google header honored the birthday of one of the most talented women to ever work in entertainment, Edith Head. The eight time Academy Award winner designed costumes for over 1100 films in a span of fifty years. I spent so much time online admiring each of her sketches that I thought I would put together a group for you all to enjoy. Fun fact: the little black dress that Audrey Hepburn wore in Breakfast At Tiffany’s was designed by Givenchy in Paris but Paramount Studios thought it revealed too much leg. The lower half of the dress was redesigned by Edith Head. If you want to see a little bit of Hollywood magic, you must watch this video!

Lotusland

Lotusland is a thirty-seven acre botanical wonderland in Santa Barbara, California. Former owner Ganna Walska, a Polish opera singer and socialite, once said “I’m an enemy of the average.” This explains why most of her life was dedicated to creating an impressive botanical garden full of rare plants, cacti and topiaries. What an exquisite place to visit!

Maurie & Eve

Summer is on the horizon for our friends Down Under and Sydney-based brand Maurie & Eve‘s latest collection has us already reminiscing about lazy afternoons and sweltering summer nights. I’m loving the oversized printed tees, cut out jacquard dresses and ripped denim. Winter what?!

Wengenn in Wonderland

This little gem has been making its way around the world wide web but I just couldn’t resist sharing it with those of you who haven’t seen it yet. Freelance artist Queenie Liao was inspired by Adele Enersen’s Mila’s Daydreams and created her own series of dreamy scenes while her baby boy naps. Wengenn’s wonderland takes shape with just some clothes, stuffed animals and other common household items. Honestly, adorable!
