***

1) The biggest money mistakes we make at every age, and six habits of financially smart women. (WSJ (behind paywall, Google the title); The Everygirl)

2) Need some drama in your jewelry drawers?  The Baublebar Annabell tassel earrings are a must have.

3) We only make three types of friendships, research says. (Quartz)

4) This Limited fringe neck sweater dress is the perfect mix of dress and casual, it’s great for parties.  Try it with these Kendra Scott cluster earrings and these Dune Tommy boots in grey.

5) Free shipping is a tempting perk, it’s also a lie that hurts businesses. (Fast Co.)

6) Is this faux fur hat too much for winter? Yes, maybe?  Well, maybe these earmuffs instead.

7) No kegs, no liquor. Are campuses wrong in targeting alcohol to stop sexual assaults? (The New York Times)

8) I love a cozy sweater, and this jacquard funnel neck from Gap is great.  This fleece one is also a good choice.

Bonus: The yoga pants flashmob, or how satire and sarcasm died. (Acculturated)

    The free shipping article is really interesting. For me , I find it harder and harder to shop for clothing online without free shipping. Declining quality and inconsistent sizing mean I’m likely to make returns, so the cost of shipping and/or return fees often just aren’t worth it.

  2. Jenn S. says:

    7 – Outright bans are irresponsible. Common-sense measures like what some schools are pursuing re: no kegs, make sense to me, though.

    Bonus – The mentality that caused this gives me a headache. One of the angry parties stated, “Women are fed up with the notion that we have to dress for people’s visual pleasure.” 1) It was a joke. 2) Since it hit a nerve…It isn’t about his, or my, or anyone else’s, “visual pleasure.” But if one must be seen, which is the case when going out, the public does not need to see the detail and layout of one’s cellulite, or the nature of their undergarments (especially the case for thinner pairs that have sheerness issues), or worst, the silhouette of one’s private regions. Seriously.

    Re: yoga pants flash mob: the letter writer was clearly trying to be more Tim Gunn commenting on fashion standards than Angry Male Chauvinist who blames sexual harassment on women’s clothing choices, but with so much of the latter floating around the internet recently, I can see how readers made that mistake.

  4. Erika says:

    I love fur earmuffs! I have pair of brown, and a dressy black pair. I love wearing them as they don’t flatten my hair or produce static.

  5. Shelley says:

    I just bought some fur earmuffs from Banana Republic for their Friends and Family sale. I wasn’t sure if I needed them but thought they were a good option on days when I need warmth but a hat isn’t suitable (like when I have a ponytail)! Ontario winters are fierce. Also loved the financially smart women article by Everygirl. Glad to see I’m doing most of these. I love the software YNAB for budgeting and I do it weekly!

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.
