I’ve posted this before, but it needs repeating.

***

1) How WH staffers adopted an “amplification strategy” to ensure they were heard in meetings.  (The Cut, an edited version of yesterday’s WaPost article, because being heard matters.)

2) This $59 H&M dress is a superb LBD.

3) Your weight can affect your job prospects–but only if you’re a woman. (Science of Us)

4) Lantern and bell sleeves are big this fall.  I love this Jonathan Simkhai sweater and this blazer from LOFT.  And this Milly cocktail dress is to die for.

5) Is “What do you do?” a loaded question? (LinkedIn)

6) Off 5th is my new source for discount denim.  Picked up these AG Angels for a song.

7) Are ancient botanical remedies the cure for the antibiotic resistance crisis? (The New York Times)

8) Gap’s new collection is perfect for cozy casual pieces like this oversized sweater and this turtleneck poncho.

    I love the atricle on the “amplification strategy” for a few reasons, but mostly because it shows women working together to help each other succeed. I’ve known a few women that were more detrimental to other ladies in the office than the men.

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
