Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 12/6/13

2013 December 6

Well, this week pretty much epitomized the term “rough week” for me, but I have a nice weekend to look forward to, so that’s keeping me cheery despite the rain here in New York. Tomorrow Joe and I are going to check out the Frick to see the Girl with the Pearl Earring and the Goldfinch--looking forward to it, since I’m in the middle of the book and really enjoying it. Sunday I’m meeting a friend to see the Jewels by JAR exhibit at the Met–should be a very cultured weekend!

Best of the Looks:

I like how Clarabelle took a bright spring skirt and made it work for the winter. Taking notes.

Stitchfix recently sponsored a contest for users to tell the story of one day through Pinterest, using Stitchfix styles throughout. It was a cool idea, and I liked the results.

A cute fabric-covered typewriter.

An illuminating interview with the Go Fug Yourself ladies.

One of my favorite winter looks from J. Crew.

So I could never pull off a plaid suit, but wouldn’t it be awesome if I could?

Best of the Books:

A fun gift guide for book lovers. Or, you know, you could get them some BOOKS.

Who knew President Obama is a Carson McCullers fan?

The 50 best articles of 2013. 

All of these things are true. 

What if Joan Didion and Anna Wintour were besties?

Reality television for writers–the wave of the future?



Have a happy weekend, everybody!

    I think there was something in the air. This was a horrible week for me and almost everyone I know. The dreary weather didn’t help either. Super TGIF! Have a fun weekend–enjoy those gems! :)
