1. Some of you may know I have a thing for little wallets on chains – I’m always on the look outs for nice options, and recently discovered this version, by Chloe.
For some reason, I never was super drawn by the original Faye bag, but these mini versions are another thing – I love them. I would totally buy this black one if I actually still went out at night, it’s the perfect “going out” bag and I love the hardware detail, and also the fact that the strap is adjustable (part of the reason why I don’t use my original Chanel WOC that much – strap too long). Nicely priced too, and available in tons of colors.
2. I love following Cannes fashion – it’s always so fun (but I like looking at actual movie stars usually, instead of models and whatever else). Two fun articles, via The Hollywood Reporter – one on what it takes to get Kirsten Dunst ready for Cannes, and another on Hollywood stylists favorite Cannes looks.
3. An interesting article I just finished via NY Mag – The Emancipation of the MILF. I thought it made some really great points, especially on the perception of the same behavior in male vs. female. What do we all think?
5. This week I finished Election, by Tom Perrotta.
Tom Perrotta is one of my favorite authors, and Reese Witherspoon will always be Tracy Flick to me (I mean that as the highest compliment, so it’s a wonder I didn’t get around to reading Election sooner. And of course, it didn’t disappoint. Funny, dark, sometimes touching, and of course well written – highly recommended, especially if you’ve seen and enjoyed the movie (and if you haven’t watched it – check it out too!).
