***

1) The Myth of the Queen Bee: Why women sometimes don’t ‘help’ other women. (The Atlantic)

2) Nordstrom Rack has several Marc Jacobs bags at reduced prices.  I picked up a new wallet.

3) OPI is launching a Washington, D.C.-themed nail polish collection.  Here, take all my money. (Chic Profile)

4) This Topshop structured shift dress in dusty rose is divine.  I’m also loving this bold, red Calvin Klein sheath dress.  Plus-size?  This Adrianna Papell side pleat dress caught my eye.

5) A recent study found that women earn 90% of what men make until they hit age 32.  They’re calling it ‘the manager divide.’ (Visier)

6) For a relaxed look, I love Stella & Dot’s beaded Nomad bracelets.  Their fresh and summery Tile Stone Ring is also a must.

7) Why Rudeness at Work is Contagious, and Difficult to Stop. (Aeon)

8) M.Gemi is quickly becoming my favorite shoe shop.  Their Fortuna flats are the perfect work shoe.  And I kind of love these dramatic Arioso sandals for the weekend.

    Can you comment on the comfort of the Fortuna flats? I have been holding off due to fears about this.

    • Belle says:

      I had to stretch the toe box a bit, but I found them fairly comfortable otherwise. But if you like a cushion-y feel, that’s not for you.

  2. Caroline says:

    I like that the OPI collection consists of colors that are well suited to darker skin tones. But those names are cringeworthy. For most of us the political stuff doesn’t have anything to do with what makes our hometown special.

    • Anna says:

      It might not be what makes our town special, but it’s what most people associate with it and you can’t deny that a major part of the city’s workforce is tied to the government in some capacity.

    • Amanda says:

      Agreed. “Yank My Doodle”? Seriously? I understand the need for the names to resonate with an audience beyond DC locals, but a lot of these seemed like they spent about 5 minutes thinking about it.

  3. Monica says:

    I honestly believe that rudeness and incivility in general are contagious. I was raised on the Golden Rule, treat others as you would like to be treated, and I’m shocked sometimes at how people talk to each other. We can raise each other up, or we can drag each other down, it’s a choice we make with every interaction we have.

  4. kittycatbob says:

    The sizing of M.Gemi shoes is painfully inconsistent. I wear a 37 and some shoes are so small in that size that I have to go up to a 37.5 or a 38. And the shoes I order in a 37.5 thinking they will run very small are huge.

    You can return easy enough, but for those shoes that you can only get merchandise credit for, watch out.

  5. s says:

    i love those nail polishes (and i actually like the names, too, but i am not a true DC-er). does anyone know where i can find these in august? like target, or do i have to order them online?

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.

Three Outfits I’ll Wear All Spring

When I started this blog, influencers still re-wore clothes. There were no haul videos filled with the latest from Shein before it winds up in a beach in Ghana poisoning the planet. There were no sponsored campaigns delivering fresh wardrobes each month. The content machine doesn’t like reruns.

The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern

When I was young, my Mother used to bring me along when she would go shopping for fabric. As a result, I spent a lot of time, killing time, flipping through pattern books. So when I spotted this dress, I was instantly transported to the pattern table at a Jo-Ann Fabrics.
