I wore this to attend a reading by Rachel Hills and Kate Harding put on by The Riveter. Both were discussing their new books – Rachel’s is The Sex Myth, Kate’s Asking for It – and both were articulate and engaging speakers. I bought both books and based on these ladies’ blog writings I know they’ll be fascinating reads.
Also I arrived late and had to sit in the front row. Which put me about two feet from both Rachel and Kate. I hope my breath didn’t smell too bad …
I’m bracing for a swelteringly hot September. Seriously. It was in the low 70s and even some 60s much of last week, and although I was delighted to be able to dress accordingly, there’s GOT to be some hot weather in store for us eventually. I mean, right?
I haven’t found tons of wordy graphic tees that appeal to me – I even made my own – but this Redbubble ampersand tee is right up my alley. I don’t qualify as a font nerd by any stretch, but I do love the look of elegant typography. Plus in a world full of polarized either/ors, I like embracing the ands.
Every time I put on gold-toned jewelry I chuckle a little to myself. I was adamantly against anything gold for YEARS, and couldn’t even bring myself to buy shoes or bags with gold-toned hardware. Times have changed, and so have my weird self-imposed rules. I’m still not a huge fan of shiny gold, but I’ve come to love the look of antiqued brass. And it’s such a subtly warming touch for black outfits.
