1) Why you should consider starting your job search in December instead of January. (Career Contessa)

2) Need a tote? Try this Sole Society Karlie bag in cognac, or this Street Level dome tote in a gorgeous deep green.

3) The Eight Friends You Make in the Modern Office. (The New York Times)

4) These $20 Old Navy flats in gold metallic are perfect for the holidays…or every day.

5) Tina Fey gives career advice, talks about how to say ‘no’, and explains where we go from here. (Bustle)

6) This red Saloni dress is everything I’ve ever wanted for NYE.  It reminds me of Kate Middleton’s utterly perfect Preen dress, but for 1/4 the price.

7) Don’t blame a woman’s career if her relationship doesn’t work out. (HuffPo)

8) I’m kind of obsessed with this Kate Spade laptop bag in a mix of soft neutrals.  I’m also loving her iPhone 7 folio case.

9) One of my very favorites: The 2016 Hater’s Guide to the William-Sonoma Catalog. (Deadspin)

10) Spotted this new jewelry line, Maha Lozi, at Shopbop.  This black stone hula hoop ring, and this teardrop zircon and rose gold ring are both very cool.

    The Hater’s Guide to William-Sonoma is always one of the highlights of the holiday season for me.

    Love the blog, been following for years! Minor annoyance – Kate’s proper title is Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. I know it’s a different case than other women who take on their husband’s last names upon marriage, but it is irritating that she is still referred to by her maiden name when she’s made the decision to change it after marriage. If we can do it for Amal Clooney, we can do it for the Duchess!

    Hi! I really love that phone case. I’d love one like that. Here’s the problem: I don’t have an iPhone. And the general assumption that everyone has an iPhone really irks me. But I digress. I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 and I love it but I don’t love that I can’t find a chic case for it. I’ve searched everywhere but I just can’t find a beautiful, elegant, classy phone case, designer or otherwise. Can you help us non-iPhone ladies find some nice phone case options? I’d really appreciate it. Thank you!

      This x 1,000. Everyone makes adorable (if not always the most functional) cases for iPhones, but they’re so hard to find for Android phones — even ones as popular as the Samsung Galaxy. :/ Belle, if you have any suggestions, they’d be much appreciated!

    • Belle says:

      Have you tried GiGi NY? They used to make galaxy cases. Let me look around.

    • K Leigh says:

      Not sure it’s “chic,” but I have a really slick case from Carved for my Galaxy, and I get a lot of compliments on it. They are very unique.

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.
