Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 6/24/11

2011 June 24

Summer is off to a running start…even though it’s been rainy and gray for the past 3 days in New York. My friend Rebekah is visiting from Boston this weekend and I’m looking forward to lots of shopping and eating and catching up, no matter what the weather is like.

What are you up to this weekend?

Best of the Looks:

I love a girl who’s not afraid of some bold color, and Jentine of My Edit is definitely rocking the color here. Lately, I can’t get the marigold and violet color scheme out of my head…I’m definitely thinking of incorporating these colors into my wedding scheme somehow.

Check out my cohorts in Academichic’s Dress Your Best Week!

The Concrete Catwalk has a turban-tying tutorial (that’s a tongue twister!).

I found out something surprising about myself last night–and that is that I love every single dress in the Jessica Simpson collection.

I want to try this nail trick from Cupcakes and Cashmere!

Best of the Books:

Tom Wolfe and Kurt Vonnegut–Awesome People Hanging Out Together indeed.

An interesting post about book blogger backlash at The Reading Ape

Top 100 Nonfiction Books of all time.

A hilarious note from Dorothy Parker to her editor.

David Stark book party. Beautiful.

 

Happy weekend all!

    Yes to the marigold and violet color scheme! It’s very bold and festive as well as having a luxe feel to it, and I would be sad if some shade of purple didn’t make an appearance on your wedding day. :) The Wolfe/Vonnegut photo is also quite marvelous!
