What I liked this week:
- How to dress like Phryne Fisher from Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries (1920s time period). H/T to Raluca for the link!
- What an interesting ring.
- I am currently obsessed with the show Blackish. I only started it because (A) I heard it was funny and (B) Tracee Ellis Ross is in it (loved her in Girlfriends), but as I started watching it, I realized just how darn relatable it all was especially from her perspective as a powerful woman.
- These golden heels are stunning.
- I love it that all these Ivy League schools had a sense of humour. What a fantastic essay.
- Fabulous cognac bag. I like that it has a shoulder strap. This one is nice too.
- Millennials need to definitely be worrying about retirement.
- OH MY GOODNESS. Into Star Wars? Well, may The Force… be in your heels.
- I am definitely very suspicious of super cheap clothing, and even more so when it looks too good to be true. I hate buying knockoffs, I avoid them and would rather do my own thing, but I get when people don’t have the budget to do what I do… so just beware of the seemingly perfect knockoff.
- The draping on this green dress is stunning.
- Speaking of powerful women… We absolutely need more of these women only Power Trips to become commonplace. I’m a huge fan of these things, where can I get a seat!? I see nothing wrong with them being women-only and excluding men because men have their boy’s cigar/golf clubs, their strip club trips (say what you want, THEY EXIST) and men’s “hunting” lodges where no women are allowed. Ever. What’s wrong with having powerful women-only things?
- These flats are stunning in this gorgeous mirrored silver.
- Isabel Marant’s rules for dressing. I pretty much follow all of them but am more dressed up than casual, whereas Marant’s items tend to be more relaxed & boho… Still, her rules are relevant and absolutely what I’d recommend.
- I love this gorgeous blue on the sweater…
- Having children is a choice. I can see how having a child-free life can be really liberating, wonderful, and joyful, just as much as I love having had Baby Bun and all the love & joy he brings into my life. It’s just another way of life, but not at all a wrong one.
- I actually have been clicking on this dress and convincing myself I don’t need it. Then clicking on it again. And again.
- Don’t read this if you get grossed out, but I love that birth story of that African woman who came into the ER snapping her fingers. Wow.
- I sort of really want these red ballet flats as well. I love the whimsical words on there.
- [Video] This is mesmerizing. I love calligraphers especially in this day and age where our penmanship has declined considerably.
