Good Reads - Rodriguez, Nail Polish, Madewell

Tonight I'm heading off to see Rodriguez in concert (if you haven't seen Searching for Sugarmanwatch it this weekend), tomorrow's weather calls for a picnic in Hampstead Heath - a 790 acre park in the middle of London with over 25 ponds (what?) - followed by what promises to be a boozy brunch on Sunday. And yoouuu? Plans or not, here are some good things to know about from the week:


The mid-1970s was a killer time time for music, and in no place more so than New York. (Also, I know nothing about that aside from what I heard in this story. )

I've already gone on about Madewell once this week but man, their sale is great. Look at this silk button-up!

I've been wearing Boots No7 nail polish in Crave Me (yep) all week and can't get enough of it.

Madewell / Fall 2013 Lookbook

Ugh, Madewell - how do you do it?

It's like you somehow know what I want to wear before I even realize I want to wear it.

Or, it's like you've gone into my closet, taken the basics, added a few perfect touches (hello, Vans) and made better outfits than I would've.

Because basically, Madewell's Fall 2013 lookbook looks like how I dress but about 900x better.

But seriously, the Sk8er Boi-esque Vans are happening.
