1. You know which bag I’ve gotten a lot more use out of than I thought? My Simon Miller nubuck bucket bag. I like it so much that I am now considering a second bag from the brand, this mini nubuck tote.
While I like the shape of the bucket a tad bit more, this mini tote has a big advantage to it: it fits a larger iPhone, unlike the adorable mini bucket, in which the phone visibly sticks out. And I love the green color! Perfect year round and a gorgeous contrast against neutrals.
2. This article is my favorite this week, via The Atlantic, Paying For Fake Friends And Family. I’d read a whole book from this man. I always find Japanese businesses like these so fascinating and at some level quite poignant.
4. I thought this article, via The NY Times, Furla and Longchamp: Quiet Surprise Stories. I don’t have any Furla (but have admired quite a few designs), but love Longchamp. I love what the brand’s management says about a commitment to reasonable pricing. Reminds me that I should get one of the Neo crossbodys for a great mommy bag option.
5. This week I finished Ginny Moon, by Benjamin Ludwig.
I really enjoyed Ginny Moon, which reminded me a lot of Room in some aspects. Like Room, it’s told from the perspective of a child – this one the fourteen year old autistic Ginny Moon. A very engaging, well written read – I highly recommend Ginny Moon.
