The Edition: No. 66

Jan 18, 2019

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.” — Charlotte Bronte

Chosen. Why it’s impossible to be a likeable female politician.

Flattened. These $35 Express flats are my new go-to work shoe.  Hello, comfort.

Solo. I’m 36, I’ve been single for 10 years. Spoiler Alert: I’m fine.

Topped. This $98 blazer is a great semi-casual option.  I also like this longer “sweater blazer.”

Division. Man Repeller explains the difference between ‘sorry’ people and ‘thank you’ people.  (A very interesting perspective.)

Erupted. My skin is not loving being back at work, hoping this M-61 Spot Mask helps.

Truth in Advertising. Hilariously realistic rom-com titles.

Workstation. Looking for a new desk at Target, ended up with this awesome $30 desk lamp instead.

GOAT. Is Serena Williams the poster woman for unapologetic greatness?

No big post today.  Just that I am definitely making these mini-Hasselback potatoes for a football-watching potluck this weekend.  They look fancy, but they’re not difficult to make, and they taste amazing.

    I really want the Hasselback potato recipe but the link brings me to the target lamp.

    Great links – I particularly liked the rom-com list, the perspective on being single and female, and the likability for female politicians. That last one was really well-written – I also liked Alexandra Petri’s humorous take on the same topic here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/opinions/wp/2018/11/16/im-fine-with-women-in-power-just-not-this-one-specific-woman-currently-in-power/?utm_term=.b11d51bbfbd1.

    Many interesting links. On sorry vs. thank you, neither really works from the person whose actions are wrong to the person wronged. Saying thank you makes the wrongdoer look virtuous somehow. Better not to commit the wrong.

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.
