Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 4/9/10

2010 April 9

I’ve dropped the blogging ball a little this week. What can I say–I’ve never been coordinated! I plan on getting things back on track in full force next week.

My favorite look this week comes from Taylor of Sterling Style. Taylor’s looks are always inspiring, and I love her photography! Seriously, look at this photo. What’s striking to me about this look is the sharp silhouette of the structured white dress tempered by sweet ruffles and the pink belt. And, can we talk about those sky-high bright blue heels for a second? Perfection.

Best of the Looks:

Idee Geniale had a great post with style suggestions for what to wear to prom–though I’m long past prom-age, the vintage shop suggestions are great–definite inspiration for weddings and other fancy events!

The Budget Babe suggests the best formal dresses for under $60 at

Modcloth is hosting a party at AWP tonight in Denver! I’m missing AWP this year, but if you’re there, you should hit up this party!

Unruly Things profiled the new spring collection at Lewis. So many adorable and fun summery dresses!

Best of the Books:

Stacked talks about how reading is sexy.

Boing Boing offers a history of the iconic Penguin paperback.

The Rumpus profiled the work of artist Susan Mullally, who does stirring portraits of the homeless with a possession they keep with them through all their travels.

Fascinating poems by Austin Kleon, created by blacking out newspaper articles, leaving only a few words and phrases that create a cohesive poem.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
