Morning Line: October 30, 2015

1) The American Cancer Society came out with new screening guidelines for breast cancer.  One prominent oncologist says she won’t endorse women getting fewer mammograms.

2) Yesterday, we talked about clutches.  This gold clutch is the most gorgeous under-$100 clutch I have ever seen.

3) If you believe in female equality, you need to be familiar with ‘Gamergate’. Buzzfeed recently announced they may pull out of SXSW due to a ‘Gamergate’ backlash.

4) Great, affordable finds from The Outnet this week: a cool boucle jacket, a chic beaded necklace (perfect for crewnecks), a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans, and this chic, black cocktail dress.

5) Arizona State wants to rethink what elite means by admitting all ‘qualified’ students.  It seems like a good idea until you realize they’re only graduating 56% of their students within six years as it is.

6) I never thought I would say the phrase ‘gorgeous a-line, cocktail sweater dress.’   Seems wrong, but it’s so right.

7) Do you use your iPhone as an alarm?  A new software update could leave you with an unexpected sleep-in day.

8) Bloomingdale’s is having a big shoe sale. 25-30% off original prices on many items, and 20% off two or more pairs with code SHELVE.  I want these snakeskin pumps and these leopard ones. #pleasethankyou

9) Ten small things you shouldn’t sweat at work. (Double mention for #1. You need to learn to live without praise (or even gratitude) in politics.)

10) If you like puffer coats for winter, this champagne BCBG coat is the only one I’ve ever seen that I liked.

11) And because it’s Halloween weekend, NPR teaches us how to outsmart Uber surge pricing.

Eye Candy. How does Antonio Berardi even make bubblegum-pink look sexy and sophisticated?  Genius.

    Completely disagree with the “don’t sweat listening to headphones at the office” advice in the Levo article. That varies by office and it has never been okay in any of the offices I’ve worked at.

Shopbop’s Best Slight-Splurges

Recently, I decided to stop buying so much fast fashion. True, some of my favorite pants and dresses came from Old Navy and H&M, and there’s nothing wrong with snagging a deal on something you’ll really wear. But I’m moving into spring with a new shopping mentality.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]
