Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 1/13/12

2012 January 13

It’s Friday the 13th! Has anything crazy happened to you today? I’ve had a pretty pleasant day, and the fact that it’s Friday always helps matters a bit. Also, THREE DAY WEEKEND!! I don’t have any huge plans this weekend, but they do consist of a birthday party, a date night with Joe to see a movie and try out the new bar in our neighborhood, brunch, and Downton Abby! Just enough activities to keep my happy. What’s on your calendar this long weekend?

Best of the Looks:

Jentine’s look just encapsulates everything I’m loving about style right now–a braid, a shiny pencil skirt paired with a utilitarian button down, calf-length boots in cognac, and tights. I’m stealing this.

This Dorothy Perkins dress makes me nostalgic. I don’t know why.

Speaking of Downton Abby, Miss Bibliophile showcases a lovely photo of the ladies, as well as an awesome Design Sponge “Living In…” feature.

Broke & Beautiful gives us the scoop on Miz Mooz shoes on sale–I really wish I could buy the Goldie t-straps in gray. Sigh.

Modcloth’s Sundress of My Life IS the sundress of my life…but not for the price tag. Yet another sigh.

Best of the Books:

Bookriot has the top most miscast literary roles.

Ten musicians who should write novels.

Is Twitter the literary salon of our time?


Lovely vintage book week posters.

Whimsical video of books that come alive at night.

What would Dorian Gray listen to? Stream his mixtape.

    Thanks for the shout out! Glad you’re enjoying Downton Abbey, too! My biggest surprise from last night’s episode is that they had curling irons back then. Who knew?!
