Sale PSA: The perfect white slouchy shorts from AG, now 30% off, a chic striped shirtdress from By Malene Birger, now $166 (I also like this oversized sweater, now under $200), and a simple striped off the shoulder dress from Lafayette 148, now 60% off (great price and also a nicer length since sometimes the dresses in this style I see are barely longer than a top).
1.Do any of you have a Simon Miller bag?
A wonderful friend recently sent me the very excellent Bonsai bag in the 20 size (highly recommended – I think it looks better in person, and the wooden handles are a great detail), and now I’m obsessed. Although I know I’m a few seasons behind on this one (how come whenever I look up something I like, all I find are articles dated at least a year back naming it as an “IT” item)?
2. If you read one article I recommend this week (and have some time) – make it this one, via The NY TImes. How To Get Away With Murder in Small Town India.
4. An interesting article, from Racked, about one designer’s business in custom clothing. I love this! I always dream of being able to place custom orders and choose fabric, like you can do in Hong Kong. Do any of you buy/order custom clothing?
5. This week, I’m reading Back to Blood, by Tom Wolfe.
I am a Tom Wolfe fan, but for some reason had no idea that he had released a new book nearly five years ago. Back to Blood takes place in Miami, and like traditional Wolfe, has many different intersecting characters and storylines, all interesting and fun (my favorite is Magdalena). Recommended, especially for existing Wolfe fans.
Oops. I just realized the image above is of the audiobook (and it’s read by Lou Diamond Phillips!).
