Lovely Links: February 5

Tiia, whose personal style is fantastically inspiring, wrote a very thought-provoking post about the politics of clothing. Is it just to ban burqas? Can the government regulate style? Could a burqa be a signature piece? All FANTASTIC questions.

Annie has done it again: Make your own thumbtack-studded wedges with her tutorial.

Somehow I missed that Mary of Fit This Girl started an outfit log blog over at Clothed in Kindness. LOVE it!

Is showing eight naked supermodels really going to expand the definition of beauty? Since they’re all tall, slender, and hourglassy? (Thanks, Jamie.)

So happy to have discovered overcaffeinated. Talk about a lady with clean, classic-yet-modern style!

Suzy Menkes, fashion editor of the International Herald Tribune, speaks out about the growing influence of fashion blogs in today’s world.

More great Gertie: Thoughts on plus-sized sewing from a fellow blogger. Don’t skip the comments section, kittens.

For MN residents interested in more Sexy Secretary discussion, there is an exhibit at the Goldstein and some associated lectures to check out. (Cheers to Ann T for the heads up!)

Never, ever, ever enough funky tights.

Possibly the best shoe-related story ever told. And it’s about BEATLE BOOTS.

Apple-shaped women rejoice! Marianna at Absolutely Apple will provide endless style inspiration.

And from the Department of Random: Single-serve Nutella? Bless. (Via Femme Rationale.)

    Thank you so much for the link, Sal! It means so much to me! The link to the politics of clothing is fantastic – so thought-provoking. And I love overcaffeinated – she's got great style, fashion-wise and writing-wise. I'm looking forward to enjoying your other links!

    I am flabbergasted that ANYONE thought those eight naked supermodels were going to expand the definition of beauty. To be fair, I only saw the three at that link, but the article said that it was supposed to show how they all differed and….they all look pretty much the same to me. Aside from skin color and facial/hair characteristics, I'd be hard-pressed to name more than one or two things that differs between them.

    If you don't mind me sayings, there shoud be an S on the end of Suzy Menkes.

    Love your links roundup, as always.

  • Sal

    enna.: Yikes, thanks! I copied that text from the source blog and didn't catch that error.

  • Annie

    Thank you for the links!

    I absolutely love overcaffeinated 🙂

  • Marianna

    Oooh thanks so much for the mention! I should probably start updating more often. 🙂

  • WendyB

    What if I don't know what kind of fruit I'm shaped like?

    Just discovered Orchids in Buttonholes and really enjoy it (and the Beatles story).

    And regarding Nutella, I don't know if these have made it to the states yet, but here they sell these single serving combo packages with little breadsticks in one compartment that you use to dip into the other compartment, which is, of course, filled with Nutella. Lethal, I tell ya. 😉
