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