Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 7/12/13

2013 July 12

It promises to be an epic weekend here–I have two birthday celebrations (one with an open bar, and one at a fancy new resto for brunch) and 90s Night tonight, all of which I’ve been looking forward to, and resting up for, all week. I can’t wait to kick off the weekend in just a couple of hours! (Joe and I are going to meet for lunch at Briskettown, to fortify for lots of dancing, obviously).

What are you all up to this weekend?

Best of the Looks:

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that I love bright colors and girly silhouettes–that’s why I love Amy of Coffee Beans and Bobby Pin’s pretty purple dress and pink heels.

The Boden Autumn Preview shoot is gorgeous and classic.

Obsessing over the Elie Saab Fall 2013 collection…swoon.

The Hairpin cracks me up–get this sexy psychologist look!

BookRiot finally gives Jessica Wakefield the literary acclaim she deserves. (See the Fashion Book I put together for her here).

Best of the Books:

At Goodreads, a fascinating infographic detailing what makes us abandon books.

Reach Out and Read is a new non-profit organization that focuses on family reading–an admirable goal!

Talking to little girls about books. 

Ben Affleck in the David Fincher adaptation of Gone Girl? YES please.

A list of really great first lines. 

I love this sweet Ploughshares feature, Writers and Their Pets. 


Happy weekend, all!

    Boden’s stuff always looks fantastic in the catalog and then is curiously frumpy in real life. But I want the skirt in the first picture! I guess I’ll never learn.
