Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 9/17/10
I don’t know about you guys, but this gloomy weather is bringing me down a little bit, and I’m really looking forward to leaving the office and getting the weekend started! I had some GREAT luck with vintage shopping this week–details to come next week–and have a fun weekend planned: date night tonight, a cookout tomorrow, and then the Pavement show on the waterfront in Williamsburg on Sunday. I’m milking summer’s last couple days for all they’re worth!
One of my favorite looks this week comes from Jessica at What I Wore. She wore this stunning Kate Spade dress to her rehearsal dinner–I love the vibrant green and the print, and I like the vintage vibe Jessica gave everything with her accessories and hair.
Best of the Looks:
I love the idea of pairing a shrunken sweater from the children’s department with a chic dress on a chilly Fall day (via The Sartorialist)
Monique Lhuillier’s collection is completely and totally gorgeous
I like Joanna’s fall shopping wish list–a slouchy cashmere sweater and skinny cords would be the perfect outfit today!
I visited Dusty Buttons last night and fell in love with just about everything in there–it was a perfectly curated collection of vintage goods. Sadly, I had to leave empty-handed, but I will be back!
Best of the Books:
The Globe Genie is my favorite new Internet addiction–with every click of the button, you’re taken to a new place via Google Street View. It’s a great way to picture yourself in a new and exotic place, and to learn more about geography!
