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

2011 November 11

Happy 11/11/11! Make some wishes–maybe they’ll come true today. Right? I’m looking forward to this weekend being productive and fun. I’ve got a trip to IKEA planned, as well as a full-scale apartment overhaul and cleaning, a housewarming party, an expedition to the Bronx for Italian food, and just generally getting stuff DONE. That’s it, Internet. I’m telling you, so now I’m being held accountable.

What are you up to for the weekend?

Best of the Looks:

As the weather gets a little nippy, I find myself drawn to the cowl scarf–I finally picked one up at Urban Outfitters last weekend and I’m looking forward to wearing it! Right now, I’m inspired by Lucy Laucht’s neutral version paired with sunny yellow and polka dots.

Speaking of scarves, a pretty braided scarf tutorial at Sidewalk Ready. 

Perfect holiday party dress at Kate Spade. 

Advice on how to stay inspired at A Beautiful Mess. 

 

Best of the Books:

Doubleday Books shows us gorgeous paper sculptures–the artist is unknown!

Guide to fictional places you can visit in real life. 

The future: interactive book covers.

The Books They Gave Me--an oddly moving Tumblr devoted to books given as gifts.

A playlist for Record Collecting for Girls on Largehearted Boy.

    I love that outfit! My friend recently gave me a cowl sweater but I haven’t worn it yet. I will see how I can incorporate it to one of my outfits. This one is very well executed. I love all the links… staying creative, and the books they gave me…what an awesome idea…have a lovely weekend!

    YES please! I’m loving cowls right now, and that outfit is perfect!
