1) Fired for refusing to wear high-heels to work, one woman is fighting back. (Today)

2) This pale pink Athenia satchel is impossibly feminine, somehow neutral, and just $59.

3) The ten worst lies you’ve been told about making a living. (CheatSheet)

4) Block heels are hot right now; try hese AT blush pumps and modern block heel slingbacks.

5) What life is like in Mosul after two years of ISIS rule. (Economist)

6) A chic LBD for just $88?  Yes, please.  I love the detail on the top.

7) The Secret to Getting What You Want (read past the long intro). (Camille Styles)

8) This layered lace sweater from Selfridge’s is phenom.  I also love this impossibly affordable Dune clutch.

9) Cat Marnell, the captivating addict and beauty editor, is still alive. (The Cut)

10) This black piped Calvin Klein blouse and this Anne Klein tweed jacket are office classics.

11) Gaslighting: What it is, and how to protect yourself from it at work or in life. (PsychologyToday)

What I’m Considering. This J.Crew sweater is so adorable, even I’m thinking about buying it.

What I’m Perplexed By. Will the real Kellyanne Conway please stand up? A surprisingly in-depth bio-piece that includes lots of details about politics, rhetoric, and having a public/private face.

What I’m Listening To. This You Tube video that plays eight hours of relaxing nature sounds.  Oh yes, it really works.

    Hey Belle!

    I know that you have done some previous posts on what to wear to a political convention.

    In that vein, have you thought about doing a post on what to wear to a protest or march? I spent all last weekend volunteering for the ACLU at Dulles Airport, and actually though on Saturday morning “what would Belle wear if she were going?”
