Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 7/9/10

2010 July 9

For a short week, this week was loooong! Does anyone else feel like that during shorter work weeks? I’m heading to New York for the first of three weekends in a row to help set up for An Ideal Husband, a play that Joe is producing, running over the next two weeks in the West Village. If you’re in the city, go see it! It’s going to be great.

I saw this on The Sartorialist yesterday and gasped at how much I love everything about it. The shoes, the bold color contrast of indigo and yellow, the belt, the sunglasses, even the ponytail. I just want it all.

Best of the Looks:

The NY Times examines the recent flurry of fashion community sites where users can comment on others’ outfits and style

I absolutely adore these Kara Ross rings {via Dilly Dallas}

Sterling Style has a helpful fishbraid video tutorial

Notebook paper t-shirt!

Best of the Books:

READ THIS essay by Steven Church–“I’m Just Getting to the Disturbing Part”

An interesting NY Times Op-Ed on the power of reading printed books over reading on the Internet

The Paris Review interviews Sloane Crosley (yeah, who doesn’t want to be her?)

A thought-provoking Vernacular post on race in fiction and writing workshops

Quirky notebooks at Swiss Miss

These book cover designs for Faber’s 2010 Poetry Collection are gorgeous

    Ooh, I didn’t know Sloane Crosley had a new book out! I Was Told There’d Be Cake made me laugh out loud. :)
