Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 5/10/13
This week started off tired, after having celebrated Joe’s birthday on Sunday, and then just escalated from there. I attended a reading series Monday night where I saw Claire Vaye Watkins, Sam Lipsyte, Amelia Gray, Toure, and Ben Greenberg at a lovely bar in Crown Heights (maybe more on that another time?), went to a writing group meeting, and then celebrated my own birthday, with a special birthday lunch at ABC Kitchen and then a home-cooked dinner (steak!), complete with yummy homemade margaritas. And this weekend promises to be a full one as well–Gatsby! Joint birthday party! Hair appointment! Mother’s Day!
What are YOU up to this weekend? I hope you’re looking forward to it as much as I’m looking forward to mine!
Best of the Looks:
I’m a sucker for yellow, but I especially love E of District of Chic’s skirt paired with a classic button-up, an edgy necklace, and a lovely belt.
Blair’s skirt is bananas. Love it.
REALLY tempted to buy these TOM’S wedges–anyone have them?
I should probably never wear anything with the name “tap shorts” but these are so cute!
A handy guide to bras.
Best of the Books:
Finally, women can stop competing with male writers! Hilarious.
What happens when we pull a switcheroo on gendered book covers?
A few literary TED talks.
My friend Jill writes about why she supports the Orange Prize (Women in Fiction).
Some great vintage New Yorker ads that echo the sentiments of Gatsby.
