The OSCARS! This was the night we celebrate the work of film artists: directors, actors, cinematographers, costume and production designers, composers and more who dedicate their lives to sharing with us visions of the human experience to enrich, inform, and entertain us--and to conceptualizing and communicating truths about the challenges, issues, and emotions we all struggle with each day.

I celebrated in Givenchy lace with a little space in front to enjoy some snacks. ;)  Here's hoping Oscar Night was a special one for you and your loved ones, too!
