I am still job searching, and I think this imaginary outfit I put together is a manifestation of my desire for a reason to get dressed up. What a joy it would be to live somewhere like DC or NY and be able to take the train to work, with some good reading material for the journey. Speaking of trains, did y'all hear about that Amtrak writer residency program? If they do it again next year, I'm applying.
Here's a work-friendly autumn look (though perhaps not for investment bankers and the like):
Asher V-Neck Sweater in Camel by Equipment | Chamberlain Eyeglasses in Saddle Sage by Warby Parker | Sydney Satchel in Raisin by Fossil | Sydney Zip Multifunction Wallet by Fossil | Midi Sunray Kilt by J.W. Anderson | Heart Earrings by Catbird | Moonstone Deco Ring in Rose Gold by Datter Industries | London Scarf in Maroon from Need Supply Co. | Elinore Jacket by Steven Alan | Holt Booties by Matt Bernson | BB for Lips in Deep Purple by Bite | Ombre Nudes Eye Palette by BECCA | Modern Love Nail Polish by Deborah Lippman | 2015 Planner by Poketo from Anthropologie | Charleston: A Novel by Margaret Bradham Thornton
I'm looking forward to reading that novel pictured above, after I finish the 15 or so books I have in my queue already :P. Right now I'm reading Gone Girl so that I can see the movie, because it's just wrong to see the movie first. I did the same with This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper (the movie was a bit of a letdown, minus Adam Driver). There are a lot of movies I want to see this fall. Yay, Oscar season! What movies are y'all looking forward to?
Also digging lately:
-Bad Feminist, Roxane Gay's collection of essays. Her livetweets of Barefoot Contessa are hilarious.
-El Pintor, the new album from Interpol.
-Urban Decay's Vice3 eyeshadow palette. Coveting it so hard.
-Project Runway. Last week's episode was wild (and at times cringe-worthy).
-I want to try this Seed Stitch Wrap knitting pattern by Purl Soho
