Sale PSA: A simple cotton shirtdress from Acne, now under $200, a light gray linen coat/jacket from Eileen Fisher, now 50% off (a great spring outerwear option), a tan espadrille bootie with hidden wedge from Tory Burch (I love a nice hidden wedge), now 33% off, and an adorable floral silk mini dress from Joie, now 40% off.
1. Earlier I mentioned I was looking for a jean jacket, and I found this great option from Current Elliot, for under $100.
I actually think the price is a mistake because it’s available on Neiman Marcus on another SKU for full price, so when I ordered, I didn’t think it would ship. But it did, and arrived! The cropped silhouette makes it a great option for petites, and the denim is soft and comfortable. Worth a try, especially at the price.
2. A great interview with Karl Lagerfeld, The Maddening and Brilliant Karl Lagerfeld. I think I could read articles and quotes about Karl all day.
3. I can’t stop reading articles about Johnny Depp and his spending. I don’t really have any sympathy for him…he comes off in my opinion as a bit of a brat. Read a great analysis, via The Hollywood Reporter. I love THR lately, by the way! So many of my favorite magazines have gone downhill, it’s good to have a new favorite.
4. Another Chanel article – yes I’m in a Chanel mood. Called Out For Copying, Chanel Does The Right Thing. I had no idea this even happened. Pretty bold. From the first article I linked it seems like Karl does a lot of the designing, but then reading this, it makes you wonder.
5. Writing about Harlots last week reminded me of another one of my favorite novels from the Victorian Era, Michel Faber’s The Crimson Petal and the White, which I recently pulled out to re-read.
The book is a tale of a prostitute/”harlot” if you will, but also much more than that – it crosses through multiple segments of Victorian London and all in all is a fascinating read. A little slower than some novels (this is a long one!) but in my opinion worth it. Highly recommend Crimson Petal for fans of well written historical fiction.
