Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 5/10/13

2013 May 10

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.
