I’ve already posted about the highlights of this year’s red carpet, but I found this graphic of all dresses worn by best actress winners at the Oscars and had to share. From these drawings you can watch style and fashion change, each dress representing a peek into that period in history and time. The sketching are playful and fun, maintaining a continuity all it’s own throughout the changing looks. Paul North writes about the response to his graphic here, and I have to second the masses – it’s fabulous!

It’s hard to believe we’re already in March. I’ve been a little anxious about this month because I’m going to be thirty and honestly, I have some apprehensions about leaving my twenties. Wasn’t there more I was supposed to do and be before I turned the big three-o? Didn’t I have a to-do list for 29 that I’m still working on? I’ve heard from friends there’s nothing better than being thirty, so I guess I’ll just get over my anxiety, embrace my age, and enjoy the ride. As Jennifer Garner puts it, here’s to being thirty, flirty, and thriving.
Here’s a glance at what I’ve been wearing and where I’ve been going, from the top down.

Last week I hosted a brand new costume event for Ballet West. It was designed to raise awareness for our incredible costume shop and the costumes they produce, and also bring in a new patrons to the ballet. After spending some time in the costume shop and seeing the actual process of making a tutu I wanted everyone else to see the same. I talked about a video idea with Brent and he was on board to help so we spent a few days of tedious work in the shop with the very talented and patient David Heuvel and Cindy Farrimond. We got a lot of wonderful footage showing their process and Brent put it all together beautifully. The video was featured at the costume event last week, and added a behind-the-scense element that went over really well.
Here’s a little love from Mr. Mingus. Happy Thursday.
