Sale PSA: An oatmeal knit poncho cardigan from Joie, now 60% off, an adorable simple black playsuit from Stella McCartney, now 55% off, simple suede/cork sandals from Splendid, now under $90, a classic shirtdress with oversized cuffs from Rag & Bone, now 40% off, and a very pretty/summery cotton off the shoulder dress from Tularosa, now $110.
1. I love, love eyelet dresses in summer so when I saw this one from J.Crew, I immediately checked it out. So pretty no?
Plus the price is quite good. Nicely under $100, lined, tall and petite versions, classic silhouette. I’d love the green but I think I’ll need to stick with petites on this one so will go with white. I only wish I could try it on, but I guess I’ll take my chances post partum. What do you think?
2. My favorite article this week, via NY Mag – The Accountant Who Tries to Keep Celebrities from Going Broke. Such a fun read!
3. The always fantastic Vanessa Friedman (I’m a fan girl) on The New Meaning of Fast Fashion. Do you need Gucci in 90 minutes? I just checked, that Gucci bag above could be in my hands in a little over an hour, only if I lived in Miami.
4. I’m sure most of you have read the news of Aaron Hernandez. I admit that I’ve always been fascinated by this story, and though I am not usually a Sports Illustrated reader, this is one of the best pieces on Hernandez that I’ve read.
5. This week, I finished The House of Mirth, by Edith Wharton.
I always try to read these sorts of “classic” books and usually start them, read the first five pages, and then give up or go watch Bravo. I was pretty sure this would also happen with The House of Mirth, but as I haven’t yet fully accepted myself as a total philistine, I gave it a go. And I have to say that I was really surprised – I loved it, and finished it in its entirety (I also then went out and bought the rest of Wharton’s work). The language was really beautiful and not too difficult to read, and the story was just so engaging. Loved it, and would love to hear from you if you’re a Wharton fan (the author, not the school).
