Thank you all so much for all your kind comments, feedback, and emails from Monday’s post. I was truly overwhelmed by the amount of kindness, generosity, and support. How amazing is it that we can connect to each other through these shared experiences? I’ll try to post updates as we begin our adventure with number two on the way…but in the meantime, let me say again (just one more time), thank you. And now onto the weekend…
1. I am drooling. Drooling! Over these shoes. I really might have to get them. Full price. If my size ever comes back in stock, that is.
These are Robert Clergerie x Self Portrait and I love everything about them. The silver metallic heel, the grosgrain ribbon, the grommet straps, the way the ankle strap is meant to look a little loose and doesn’t look stupid….everything. Even at full price these are reasonable (for designer) at $595 and they are quite wearable. You could wear these all night.
2. I read this article, via NY Mag, with great fascination – what it costs to be ageless. It was so interesting to read about all the different procedures but the part that stayed with me was that as you get older, you’re willing to spend more on skincare/beauty, and care less about physical items.
3. An interesting article from Vanity Fair (I love it when they have these long gossipy pieces) about Matt Lauer, the arrival of Megyn Kelly, and the future of NBC.
4. Did you know that millennials today in Japan are super frugal? I was so fascinated by this interesting piece via Reuters that I also found this accompanying video on the same topic, via the WSJ (I’d recommend a watch, it’s short). Mommy’s closet, here I come!
5. This week I finished Oh the Glory of It All, by Sean Wilsey.
Glory is a coming of age memoir by Sean Wilsey, who grew up in the midst of the highest of high society in San Francisco. The name dropping along would make this book worth it (if you’re into that sort of thing that is – which I totally am), but it’s actually a great memoir in its own right, well written and introspective. Recommended if you enjoy memoirs, or are just interested in a gossipy expose on San Francisco society. For a little more background you can check out this piece via The NY Times on Dede Wilsey, Sean’s stepmother, who features prominently in the book (and not in a gentle benefactor sort of way).
