Weekend Update

Sale PSA: As you’ve heard all over the web, the Nordstrom sale is now open to the public. I don’t have a card, so this is when I’m going to shop. Some additional picks: these Cole Haan booties/sandals, now under $100, everyday walking sandals from Kork Ease, now under $80 (I’m quite tempted actually, as an alternative to the Birkenstocks), and a great Bobbi Brown Lip Tint set, now $34 (I’m buying this! It’s literally two for the price of one).

Elsewhere: A sleeveless silk dress from Everlane, now $84, a simple and pretty crepe chiffon dress from Rebecca Taylor, now $142, and a very cool tiger print dress from Saloni, now $210.

Like for items like this dress, all cotton, for $40.

I think this is where H&M really excels. Because a dress like this would be a lot more from another brand. Simple cut, all cotton, comfortable, breezy. A little worried about the crosshatch in the front but nothing a bra won’t fix.

2. A piece, via SMCP, about all the young Chinese students having plastic surgery before college. I have to admit I’m fascinated by plastic surgery. Who wouldn’t want to be more beautiful? I’m terrified of complications though and also given that I have a daughter I wouldn’t want her to think that it’s normal to be dissatisfied with your face.
