1. Have any of you tried Everlane shoes? I really like the backpack I got last year, and have been eyeing these pointed flats. I love the black and white version!
I’ve been looking for some more comfortable flats, and even though I love my AGLs, I’d like to switch things up a bit. My Chanels are really comfortable too, but the prices are getting dearer and dearer. These Modern Points are priced right and I think they can look quite sleek on the foot. If anyone has any feedback on Everlane shoes, please share!
2. For fans of Balenciaga and those following who might replace Alexander Wang as head of the label, an interesting piece via the NY Times about three contenders for the role, as well as the rise of the “non-star designer” heading up major labels.
4. Foodies (are we still supposed to be hating that word?) and non foodies alike will find this article interesting, via Vanity Fair, about why some of the world’s top chefs actually do not want a Michelin star. I thought it was absolutely fascinating! Do you look for Michelin ratings when choosing restaurants? I try not to care but have to admit that I can be pretty lazy about finding good spots in new destinations…I’ll always prefer a friend’s recommendation, but if not then Michelin can be pretty handy.
5. This week I’m re-reading (just for the second time) I Am Charlotte Simmons, by Tom Wolfe.
I’ve mentioned before that I’m generally a fan of Wolfe, and even though Charlotte Simmons isn’t my favorite work of his, I still find it quite entertaining and overall a good read. It never drags or seems slow, and a lot of what Wolfe described of college life was relatable to me (but I really wish he’d stop writing rap lyrics…oof). Enjoy!
