Does Cher not look fabulous here? I remember being so struck by this image of her in the brilliant style guide Cheap Chic (which came out in 1975 and has since been reissued and which you should by all means snap up, as it’s a timeless classic). I’m very much feeling this look. It seems polished and sexy and new, even though it’s been around for a little while.
I like the solid dark wash on this pair from Frame denim, and it’s got a staggered hem, which is very of the moment.
It’s tough to find a high-waisted pair in a boyfriend cut, but these—from Rag & Bone—are rather good.
Here’s a slick black pair.
I’m liking the grayish wash on this Citizens of Humanity pair.
These have a nicely beaten-up look.
- Portlandia was just renewed for its eighth and final season. (Flavorwire)
- Here is the list of democratic lawmakers who’ll be skipping the inauguration. (Slate)
- A collection of the most 80s hair you’ve ever seen. Truly epic. (Dangerous Minds)
- Are these the least stressful jobs for 2017? (R29)
- And finally, here’s the trailer for The Santa Clarita Diet, starring Drew Barrymore as a suburban zombie. (Pajiba)
These Nili Lotan jeans are pricey, but I really like the trousery-y cut. Plus, they’re quite flattering.
And these Nike sneaker boots are slightly weird, but I am completely obsessed. They just look so cozy.
And maybe it’s just my mood, because this is on the weird side too, but the mix of stripes and leopard print is killing me.
Nothing weird about this very nearly perfect silk blouse, though. It’s simply straightforwardly pretty.
- Clever vintage photos of notable people jumping. (Kottke)
- Very inspired by the story of this four year-old reading prodigy. (The Cut)
- A guide to all the Victorian TV dramas currently streaming—and there are quite a few. (Vulture)
- It’s the world’s first robot-run hotel. (Atlas Obscura)
- Liz Phair is working with Ryan Adams on a new double album, which could be interesting. (A.V. Club)
Of all the recurring posts I do, there is no greater pain in the ass than dresses with grown-up hemlines. This is because I like to show you dresses with actual sleeves as well, and this additional requirement always manages to whittle the choices down with alarming efficiency. I did find a handful I liked quite a lot, however, starting with this flatteringly-cut dot print from & Other Stories.
A very ladylike—but not at all prissy—silhouette.
I just love this fun print, and the dress itself looks so easy and even a little sexy.
I like that this manages to be shoulder-baring and long-sleeved at the same time.
A graceful, asymmetrical choice from Zero+ Maria Cornejo.
I am a big fan of a simple shirtwaist dress—and like the way this one looks in comes in navy, too.
And finally, to round out the group: a really quite pretty silk floral.
