1) Interviews with women who make less than their partners. (Refinery29)

2) This Tahari black skirt suit is a great entry level suit at $129. I also like their navy suit with a four-button jacket.

3) Good advice for how to dress for a no dress code office. (Career Contessa)

4) There’s a ‘surprise sale’ at Shopbop.  I bought this delicate Bronzallure ring and these ($69!) gold MK flex heels.

5) Successful e-mail strategies for getting your boss to say ‘yes’ to something. (Business Insider)

6) Love lingerie? This sweet little lace set from ASOS is $44.  This $47 silk cami set is great for everyday.

7) Forget money, millennials want pre-nups for their intellectual property. (Fashion Law)

8) This fantastic Etsy shop lets you buy antique books by color cover, for all your shelf styling needs.

Bonus: ‘I live in a lie’ Saudi Arabian women speak out. (The New York Times)

    A little late, but thanks so much for sharing the series about women who make less than their partners – I’ve recently stepped back into the dating world (after a six year break!) and this is something I find myself feeling very insecure about, when I know that the man makes significantly more money than me. Just add it to the long list of dating quirks to deal with, right?! I also finally tried Tinder, and the fact that you tried it helped me have the courage to attempt it (after months of prodding from a very good male friend).

    Also, best of luck studying for and kicking ass on the bar exam!

    I know this may be a deeply unpopular opinion, but I will never in my life be able to understand why people buy decorative books. The concept itself is just an affront to everything I believe in – it’s like buying fake bags, who are you trying to impress? And why? My bookshelves aren’t “styled” because they reflect who I am and what I’m interested in, and that’s what home libraries are supposed to do – they’re supposed to hold collections of written works that appeal to you based on their content, not the color or the design of their cover. If you want styled shelving, buy knickknacks and pieces that reflect your taste in home decor, there’s certainly plenty of stuff to choose from in that department at every price point, from Goodwill to Restoration Hardware. But buying books that mean nothing to you to display and never read? I just don’t get it.

      I usually buy books I’ve read with nicer covers. But it does upset me when you go into a home full of books and not one spine is cracked.

The Range: Trouser Jeans

Yesterday, we chatted about not-see-through tees. Today, I want to talk about jeans. I am so grateful wide leg denim is back in a big way. And if you’re going to the office, you need a trouser style jean to see you through the week (or just casual Friday). Here are some favorites in different […]

The Find: A Miracle T-Shirt

Remember when clothes didn’t suck? The years were the late-90s and early-aughts. Jeans stretched a little, but were mostly cotton. Cashmere was soft and heavy and durable. Poly-blends were only sold at the giant teens stores on the lower level of the mall. And t-shirts were thick, not see-through, and wore like iron. Your first […]
