Sale PSA: A beautiful cold shoulder midi dress from Self Portrait, now 60% off, an adorable tie front poplin top from Bobeau, now just $33, gorgeous and versatile low block heel Blahnik sandals (which I bought and paid more for), now 60% off, and a double breasted navy zip off fur coat from Veronica Beard, now 75% off (this is super versatile and worth a try for the price!).
1. I love wearing caftans around the house as pajamas/lounge wear – here’s one of my favorites, for a great price right now (under $40) from J.Crew.
Love the length of this one, as well as the slits – it can be hard to find a more “modest” length caftan that still is pretty without going too much into muumuu territory. I usually go for classic white but the navy on this one is gorgeous, and also not as sheer.
2.For anyone who watches Silicon Valley (TV show) – this slightly bizarre interview with TJ Miller, via The Hollywood Reporter, is a must read.
3. I liked this piece, via The NY Times, about shopping at Elie Saab. How I’d love to have a friend like Nick, to tell me gossipy bits about whether each piece is well priced or not!
4. A quick piece, via The WSJ, about designer heels that feel like Birkenstocks (this is like personalized click bait article titling to me). Kind of reminds me of Taryn Rose of olden times (anyone remember that brand? When it was priced around $400-$500)?
5. This week I finished The Force, by Don Winslow.
Don Winslow is one of my favorite writers, and I’ll pretty much read anything he comes out with, immediately. I pre-ordered The Force months ago and was so thrilled to see it arrive. I was so excited that I stopped reading another book I was having a decent time with, just to start on this one.The blurb from Stephen King pretty much sums it up – The Godfather, but with cops.
I will say that my #1 Winslow work is still The Cartel – but The Force won’t disappoint any fans and is a fast, thrilling, well written read. Highly recommended! More, Winslow, more!
