WEEKEND UPDATE

Fashion

1. I’m still very much enjoying J.Crew lately – I’m so happy that the brand has “come back”! My latest purchase isthis drop sleeved shirt – it’s a little big on me, but I still love the silhouette and general design.

This shirt reminds me of what I wish a lot of Everlane pieces would be like – I like a lot of Everlane items, but wish sometimes there was a tad bit more styling. Funny how the J.Crew price is quite similar to what I imagine Everlane would sell a similar piece for as well, even though Everlane markets itself as less expensive. What do you think?

2. I’m always game for a snarky article about Silicon Valley, so am sharing a particularly good one about the current state of haute cuisine in the Bay Area, again via The NY Times – Dinner Disrupted. I have to agree that the tasting menu prices are outrageous! We received a very generous gift awhile back of $   to one of these restaurants, so we could go out to dinner…only to discover that only covered basically one person’s portion when the bill came, and we only had a glass or two of wine each. Outrageous.

3. On the topic of J.Crew – a two part interview via The FT, with Jenna Lyons on personal style (part one, and part two).

4. An interesting deep dive, via Esquire, about Jared Kushner and his role in the Trump campaign – lots of juicy little gossipy tidbits (my favorite kind of political article, of course.

5. I’m so relieved that I don’t have to apply for school anymore…I have no idea how I’d get in anywhere, but it just makes me more nervous for my own children. Articles like this one –  To get to Harvard, Go to Haiti, again via The NY Times, don’t help! But I guess there’s always something each generation…I’d love to hear your thoughts.

5. This week, I just finished (as of this Friday morning) The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo, by Amy Schumer.

I got this book as soon as it came out earlier this week, since I’d been hankering after a funny read for some time now. And I have to say, it doesn’t disappoint! If you’re a fan of Schumer’s, and/or also liked books like Bossypantsor Yes Please, I’d highly recommend this book. A fun, funny and engaging read.

Also, I was surprised to see this book at only 3 stars out of 5 currently on Amazon, but reading some of the negative reviews, they seem to largely be part of an orchestrated campaign to take down her average score…disappointing behavior and also very annoying since I usually love reading Amazon reviews to help me decide whether to buy books! Just a heads up.

Jude Law's Daughter Is Fashion's Next It Girl — or Haven't You Noticed?

Fashion


There's a reason 15-year-old Iris Law's Instagram feed looks so artsy. Sure, there are designer pieces to thank — including Gucci espadrilles and Louis Vuitton pajamas — but Iris is also building her photography portfolio. The budding supermodel, who's daughter to actor Jude Law and designer Sadie Frost, has been shooting campaigns and covering magazines like it's NBD. But as she told Teen Vogue, her future plans involve starting a magazine and scoring even bigger editorials. Iris is well on her way, considering she's already posed for Miu Miu. Read on to see a few different snaps of Iris defining her own signature style, which is undeniably carefree, but a little bit funky too.

Known for her charitable endeavors, Taylor Swift is donating $  million to Louisiana flood relief after torrential rains hit the state, taking at least 11 lives and damaging more than 40,000 homes. “We began the 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home,” said Taylor. “The fact that so many people in Louisiana have been forced out of their own homes this week is heartbreaking.” The 26-year-old added, “I encourage those who can to help out and send your love and prayers their way during this devastating time.” That’s one seriously respectable way to shift the attention from the recent Kanye beef. Bravo, Tay.

When you hear of Urban Decay, the first thought that pops into mind most likely involves their Naked palettes. For years, the brand’s Naked range of eyeshadow palettes have been a staple in every beauty junkie’s vanity. In fact, they’re so popular that they’ve released two newer versions of the original palette, as well as smaller palettes containing only basic colors and a smoky palette.

If you thought Urban Decay had exhausted their range of covetable product opportunities, think again. This past weekend they announced on Instagram that a new palette is shortly on its way. The latest addition to the Naked collection is the Naked Ultimate Basics Palette. This palette will include twelve brand-new Naked shades and this time they’re all matte. Matte eyeshadows are perfect for those who like a lot of pigment, and long-lasting color.
