Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 11/22/13
This morning’s rain seems to have cleared up and the weekend is rapidly approaching. I treated myself to an iced coffee this morning and am contemplating a lunch time stroll to The Strand. Friday! We have a couple friends in town this weekend, so we’re planning a big karaoke gathering tomorrow night, which promises to be a good time, and Sunday afternoon we’re attending a pre-Thanksgiving potluck. Any time I get to eat stuffing is a good time, in my opinion.
Oh, and writing. I’ll be doing a lot of writing. I’m at 29,000 words for NaNoWriMo and my goal is to get to 35,000 by weekend’s end. It’s lofty, but I think I can do it!
What are you all planning for the weekend?
Best of the Looks:
Annie of the Other Side of Gray is really evoking fall foliage with her orange sweater and pine green skirt. An unlikely combo, but I like how it’s working here.
On the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination, we’ve all been bombarded with retrospectives and remembrances. One that caught my eye was this Slate article about the significance of Jackie Kennedy’s dress and what it meant that she didn’t change it.
Out of Print is now offering jewelry.
What the women of Stitch Fix wear to work. (Talk about a dream job).
Damsel in Dior’s Holiday Gift Guide is lovely.
The Classy Cubicle’s guide to owning the interview.
Best of the Books:
The National Book Awards were held Wednesday. A hearty congrats to the winners!
Speaking of the National Book Awards, my friend Julia attended the 5 Under 35 party Monday night and wrote about it. Look out for a cameo appearance in her post!
How awesome would it be to have a reading net in your home?
Messy Nessy Chic rounds up an impressive compendium of items found in books–some of them are quite beautiful.
