Weekend Update

Sale PSA: An adorable (!!) gingham silk mini dress from DVF, now $209, stretch leather biker pants from Nordstrom (classic and will last you for years), now 60% off, a pretty red smocked waist dress from Alice & Olivia, now under $200, and a short sleeved tennis dress from Veronica Beard, now just $138. 

1. Shirtdress lovers (I know there are many of you out there, competing with me for sizes) – I’d like to share my most recent find, this great Socialite dress, for under $50.

This dress reminds me a lot of one of my own favorite shirtdresses, this Veronica Beard, only at 1/10th the price (ouch). I own the VB, otherwise I would buy this one. Yes the VB probably has better material (I am a sucker for lyocell) but for the difference in price, I’d definitely give the Socialite a shot. I love the pinstripe and the knot, and my only concern would be that it might be sheer.

2. An interesting piece via The Atlantic on the popularity of Goop. Thoughts? Do you read Goop? Do you subscribe to the guru that is Gwyneth?

3. What 10 People Wore To Interview With Anna Wintour, via The Cut. That photo of her, by the way!! My goal in life is to have a photo like that. If it ever happens I’ll probably be wearing sweatpants underneath the desk.

4. Loved this charming article via The NY Times, about being a food critic in the modern age. That bit about restaurants changing their lighting to better suit Instagram photos..amazing.

5. This week, I finished The Lonely Polygamist, by Brady Udall.

The Lonely Polygamist is actually the perfect title to describe the book – in short, it’s about a polygamist, named Golden Richards, who has four wives, and is lonely. This is a super charming, very well written, and interesting novel, and I really enjoyed it. Of course, I was also a huge fan of Big Love, and am just into learning about the daily life about polygamists (don’t pretend you aren’t!). One thing to note – this book is quite long. I read it on my Kindle, so didn’t realize the page count right away, but now that I’m looking on Amazon, its 624 pages. I like long books, especially when they’re good, so I didn’t mind at all, but if you’re looking for a shorter read, this might not be it.

    Thanks for the Atlantic article link. Ugh with Gwyneth! I’m always surprised that people trust health advice from a famous person, but isn’t that how we got the whole anti vaccination mess? I have teenage daughters and they take advice on nutrition from skinny girls on instagram, it’s crazy!

      A that comment about teenagers made me laugh, and I can 100% see how that has come to pass!

    Hi, thanks for the links, as always – just wanted to say that link to Atlantic on Goop is actually a link to amazon.

        thanks you:) i read the article. Honestly, i find it disgusting the way some celebrities monetize on their fame. Yes, there are enough charlatans as is, and you should always think for yourself when taking someone’s advice. Still.. What do you think? PS just to be clear, i do not read Goop but i came across a few articles several times so I have some idea of what’s going on there.
