Lovely Links: February 19

The ladies at Academichic have assembled a fantastic scarf-tying bibliography.

Model Coco Rocha refuses to lose weight, even if it means losing work. Via a very thought-provoking post from No Signposts in the Sea.

These are making me rethink my personal ban on moccasins.

WendyB hosted a panel on ethics in style blogging, and wrote about her views on gifts and reviews in blogs, and how best to handle them.

How’s THIS for an alternative perspective on eating healthy? (Via YBSPI.)

You all know I love pushing the envelope by wearing leather at the office. Kimberly has some great tips for dressing down a leather skirt to make it work-appropriate.

Hey Duluth! UMD Health Services is hosting a Q&A with “America the Beautiful” director, Darryl Roberts. Anyone else see this film? Opinions?

Anyone else a little bored with the Fashion Week frenzy?

I can lift quite a bit of weight and there’s loads of muscle in there, but my arms are just plain big instead of “sculpted.” I’ve been lamenting this lately, for whatever reason, so this post on the dangers of body comparison – using Jen Aniston’s arms as an example – really hit home.

Probably gonna have to wrap a scarf around my boot before winter ends. Simple, chic, brilliant.

Brain food to keep those synapses healthy for LIFE.

Marianna lists her current favorite plus-sized blogs. What are yours?

You guys know I don’t generally lose it over designer stuff, but holy guacamole, I’d sell my liver for ANY of these Proenza Schouler AW10 shoes. Any. No lie.

A few choice words (and a flip of the bird) to the traditional news media for bashing fashion bloggers.

National Eating Disorders Week begins this Sunday, 2/21. Do you know anyone with an eating disorder, or have one yourself? Please consider spreading the word, if so.

And, from the Department of Random, what does your website sound like? Put a URL into Code Organ and it will instantly compose midi music based on its content. The Already Pretty Theme song definitely has some Eastern overtones … not sure why.

    Sally, thank you SO much for the mention again! You rock! πŸ™‚ Greatly appreciated!

  • Kelly

    A moccasin ban? That's unnecessary! πŸ˜‰

    I just bought moccasins a while. Turns out they're too stumpy looking to work with my skinny jeans like I'd hoped, but I still wear them while I putter around the house!

    I really look forward to your link list every week.

  • The Waves

    Thanks Sal, for linking me again! Not feeling the fashion weeks here either, but I will fight you for those Proenza shoes… πŸ˜‰

  • Academichic

    Great links as always and thanks for the shout-out! I really enjoyed reading the post on editors vs fashion bloggers and the Coco Rocha story. I actually really liked Coco Rocha's own more in-depth post on the issue on her blog over the shorter version written about her in the NYT.

    Sorry this is such a late comment, but I just had to share this link.

    http://www.self.com/fitness/workouts/2008/11/sculpt-a-list-arms-fast#slide=1

    I came across it a while back when I was bored of my old non-sculpting routine. They're odd but they worked for me. The title does rather fit in with what you were saying, but at least it's a little less specific πŸ™‚
