These Day of the Dead correspondence cards from Smythson are simultaneously badass and elegant.
I keep seeing circle bags everywhere, and I’ve decided they’re kind of fun. They don’t take themselves too seriously, but at the same time aren’t perilously wacky. A good bag for bopping around on the weekend. This first one is rather sleek.
I like the neutral hue here.
A nice, slightly rugged option.
- These photos of massive waves crashing in Australia are rather awesome. (Colossal)
- I found this piece, about the clothing of grief, to be quite poignant. (Racked)
- 18 of the most political moments in Oscars history. (Elle)
- The highs and lows of last night’s Oscars. (Vulture)
- And finally, the best and worst of the Oscars red carpet. (The Cut)
I’m pretty much over splurgy sneakers—give me some Vans or Nikes and I’m perfectly happy most of the time—but I did go in for these, because they are dead ringers for a beloved Isabel Marant pair I have that is now completely busted. Plus, they’ve got a subtle platform, which is nice for a little height. And they’re wicked comfortable.
I think the blue on this silk button down is to die.
Just a nice pair of boyfriend jeans in a good wash.
Lately I’ve gotten it in my head that I need a pair of pale pink sunglasses, and I think these would do just fine (there are also these, which are a good bit cheaper).
- Seven of the coolest rooms anywhere. (Mental Floss)
- 25 notable women on style. (The Cut)
- This supercut of the early roles of some 2017 Oscar nominees is not unentertaining. (Flavorwire)
- Hideous. (Jezebel)
- These photos of gangsters, prostitutes, and drag queens in Tokyo’s red light district, circa the late 60s-early 70s, are rather intense. (Dangerous Minds)
I like the idea of a backpack a lot—they seem like the choice of smart, cool women who have more important things on their minds than what bag to wear. And if you’re shlepping a lot around, they’re so much more comfortable than a big, heavy purse. I think I will go crazy if I try to write my entire book in my apartment so I’ve been scouting out other places that I can work, and thinking about bags I can carry my computer in too, and a backpack just seems to make a lot of sense.
There is something quite appealing about a super-basic, no-frills nylon version.
But this buttery leather pouch-shaped option is quite nice too.
Extremely minimal and super-chic.
A gorgeous, splurgetsatic blue suede choice from Mansur Gavriel.
This one kind of looks like the one from Mansur, but it’s super-cheap.
And I like that this looks like a bucket bag.
