Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 9/20/13

2013 September 20

Exactly one year ago I was on my way to Rhode Island to prepare for my wedding. Sometimes it seems like a decade ago and sometimes it seems like last week. We are having dinner on Sunday at Blue Hill at Stone Barns up in Tarrytown to celebrate and I am SUPER excited. The Brooklyn Book Festival is also happening on Sunday, so I’m hoping to stop by Sunday morning before we drive up for our later afternoon reservation. What are you all up to this weekend?

Best of the Looks:

This week’s look comes from Franish. It’s simple but cute and chic and functional. I like the pop of the polka dots and the subtlety of the different shades of blue.

I’m in love with this J. Crew bag…and they’re offering 25% off right now…I’m so, so very tempted. (I even had a dream about it last night. Not kidding).

Like it or not, sweater season has officially arrived and I need some new ones! This L.L. Bean fisherman’s sweater is a classic.

Super cute use of faux leather trim–and Target no less!

An interesting take on the Queer History of Fashion exhibit at the Fashion Institute of Technology.

A roundup of fashion trends from the Spring/Summer 2014 shows.

Best of the Books:

Eating and drinking your way through literary Brooklyn–not a bad way to spend a weekend!

My friend Julia runs a great Tumblr called BookStalker–check out her post about Adelle Waldman’s conversation with Jay McInerney last week.

If you’re like me, you’re dreading James Franco’s film adaptation of As I Lay Dying. Still, I found this response completely hilarious.

A helpful post on the Ploughshares blog about sending out your writing–we could all use advice on that front!

Vice, of all places, has a cool article about Marilynne Robinson. 



Happy weekending, all!

    Great links! I wish I could do literary Brooklyn tonight. Alas, it looks like literary-living-room-outside-of-Pittsburgh. Jess
