Lovely Links: 11/25/11

Had another feature in the Minneapolis StarTribune last weekend, this one on making trendy color pairings work for you!

Alexa, a teenager, writer, and feminist, writes eloquently about how her generation is responding to beauty norms.

Looking to add a ladylike purse to your collection? Here are eight darling structured handbags for under $20 apiece.

A little reminder that proportion is everything.

It always gives me a thrill to hear a man wax poetic about clothing, dressing, and the power of style. (Cheers, Susan)

Nothing like a gorgeous blogger in bold primary colors to lift your spirits, eh?

For some, the well-edited wardrobe is an appealing fantasy, but the appeal of a large and varied wardrobe the functional reality.

Now THAT is a breathtakingly gorgeous coat.

Want to find out how I met Husband Mike? And why I’ll never play in a band with him ever again? Here you go.

Kendra rocks a striped dress and cozy infinity scarf.

High Plains Thrifter swears by Woolite’s Dry Cleaner’s Secret. Better than Dryel, apparently. Anyone else given this product a try?

Imogen reaches into her extensive archives to offer you seven ways to define your style.

It is the height of irony that women are valued for our looks, encouraged to make ourselves beautiful and ornamental… and are then derided as shallow and vain for doing so.” (Thanks, Arinn.)

Thrifting goddess Jentine has started a feature in which she highlights her fellow secondhand mavens. It’s called, simply, She Thrifted.

And from the Department of Random: My love for burrowing owls increased exponentially after seeing this. (And yes, I did love them already.)

    Oh, Sal! This sentence – nay – the whole paragraph on how you fight, just went into my collection of favourite written words: “We fight infrequently, effectively, and beautifully. That’s how it had always been.” Lovely.
