Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 12/2/11
Can you believe it’s December already? There’s a makeshift Christmas tree stand a block away from my subway station: a few pine trees leaning against a fence, a string of colored lights, and a boombox taped to a lightpost. It’s been pretty cheerful walking home the past couple of nights, hearing “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” blaring from above, smelling pine in the air. A little weird, but mostly fun.
Best of the Looks:
This look from All This Happiness combines a few of my favorite things: yellow, polka dots, oxfords, and red lipstick.
I’m not sure I could pull off these Dolce Vita boots, but I sure do like them a lot.
So, I have a weakness for yellow. And Topshop. This dress = yes.
Speaking of awesomeness in yellow, Chloe.
A vampy nail polish from NARS for the winter.
Best of the Books:
HBO is looking into adapting William Faulkner’s work for the small screen. I don’t know how to feel.
The NYT’s Ten Best Books of 2011 list is out. I haven’t read any of the top ten. Sigh.
The Jacket of Jackets from the NYT list is also out. Um, amazing?
On supporting your local indie bookstore–it’s so important!
A creative nonfiction short from Brevity that I liked.
