1. Today I’d like to share more item that I forgot to put on my holiday wish list – fun, beautiful holiday party shoes!
These are totally the kind of shoes you would buy for your own wedding and then use for lots of fun parties afterwards. My own wedding shoes were black lace, so I never picked up my sparkly pair – these from Jimmy Choo would be perfect.
2. A really interesting article from Business Week: Why Michael Kors Can’t Afford to Cut Prices to Spark Holiday Sales. Do you all think the trend of MK’s retail domination will continue? This is one of my favorite brands to watch.
3. Did any of you shop at Delia’s when you were growing up (if you don’t even remember Delia’s, then you are too young and probably are using Snapchat right now…). I remember being so excited for the catalogs and then mailing away for the items. My favorite Delia’s memory is one of my best friends ordering her prom dress from the catalog, and then it arriving and looking beautiful on her. All for something like $79 full price.
I was thus sad to hear that Delia’s was actually shutting down, via NY Mag – if you read, please also share if you have fond Delia’s memories!
4. I feel a bit sheepish whenever I recommended a huge bestseller on here, but I really wanted to hear any opinions on this week’s reading for me – Outlander.
I’ve actually had this series sitting on my shelf for years and for some reason, could never get into it. I finally gave it another go on my flight to New York, after my friend kept going on and on about the dude that plays “Jamie” in the Starz series. Anyway, once I started, I found myself quickly going through the whole first book of the series, Outlander – it was really good! I’m glad that I tried again.
I’m about midway through Dragonfly in Amber however, and I don’t know if I’m going to make it through. I’m losing interest and it’s seems to be veering further away from Game of Thrones and more towards 50 Shades of Gray in some scenes.
Have any of you read this series, and do you have any recommendations or thoughts? Should I stick it out?
