Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 1/22/12
A Sunday BotL BotB post! Will wonders never cease? NYC got its first snow of the season (not counting the fluke Halloween weekend storm) yesterday and so I stayed in nearly the whole day, in slippers, drinking coffee and reading on the couch with Chief. It was wonderful. Today Joe and I are going to see Kevin Spacey in Richard III at BAM. I haven’t been to see a show in months, so I’m looking forward to it!
How have you been spending the weekend?
Best of the Looks:
I know we’ve all seen enough coverage of the fashion from the Golden Globes last week, but Evan Rachel Wood’s dress was my favorite by far. It was dramatic, gorgeous, and reminded me of Alexander McQueen.
Madewell’s spring line is out and I really want this dress.
Kendi’s right on the money with her take on 3rd grade. I had jeans exactly that color then, and frequently wore them with a brightly-colored sweater with a horse’s face on it. Trendsetter?
I love Monique’s personal and inspiring post about her hair.
A neat trick at Clothed Much to keep your belts in place.
Best of the Books:
Ten literary traditions for die-hard fans.
