Workday Reading

The Workday Reading: December 28, 2015



1) The Top-6 ‘Good News’ Stories of 2015. (Gates Notes)

2) Looking inexpensive work bags?  Last Call has a lovely selection.  I like this Neiman Marcus Perri satchel.  This discounted Furla zip-around wallet is a great wallet at a good price.

3) “I’m Having a Friendship Affair.” (The Cut)

4) The Kate Spade sale is on point.  This Cedar Street makeup bag is really clever for storing your cosmetics.  I also love the racing stripe on this pebble and black Margot bag.

5) This video will show you how to open a champagne bottle with a spoon. (Digg)

6) For an under-$100 cocktail dress, this green lace dress from The Limited is pretty.  If you need a day-to-night option, their hot pink sheath dress is a good option.

7) How to prevent your next fight from spiraling out of control. (New York Magazine)

8) Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale is on.  If you use Lancome products, they’re offering a few dollars off the most popular ones.

9) Why your New Year’s resolution might do more harm than good. (Business Insider)

10) Affordable belts can bring new life to an old outfit.  This Gap calf-hair belt is a steal.  This wide, H&M suede belt in dark tan can do double-duty for work or weekend.

11) J.Crew thinks they can convince customers to look past the declining quality of their garments by sending “reassuring” e-mails. (

12) Net-a-Porter has extended their end-of-year sale.  I love this Monica Vinader rose gold bracelet and it’s linear onyx companion.  I also like this Eddie Borgo rose gold bracelet with smooth-rock crystals.

13) Dave Barry’s “Year in Review” is as funny as it is tragic. (The Washington Post)

Eye Candy. Oh, Oscar de la Renta, this red evening gown with floral accents is just gorgeous.
