whale of a tale

I love that the pattern at the top of this dress creates a little frame for brooches. I know it probably wasn't intentional on this particular frock, but how neat would it be if there was a whole line of dresses/tops with brooch frames?

I spend way too many blog posts talking about whatever I'm watching on netflix but... I just found Prophets of Science Fiction and it is so, so good! Each episode gives biographical information about one particular science fiction author and then delves into the science behind their stories and which of their futuristic predictions have come true today. My favorites so far have been the Mary Shelley and HG Wells episodes. I also really liked the episode on Philip K Dick. I haven't read anything by him before but now I'd like to!
