Weekend Links

“You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”
― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Jeff had the day off on Friday and I got to work from home for the last few hours of the day due to an office move. The result has been an amazingly productive pair of days with a whole Sunday left to go. Excuse me while I scamper off to enjoy it!

Going to this, this weekend!

A favorite topic around these parts!

Needed. Someone be a dear and send me a pair?

This girl is killing it.

Marie Claire did a piece on women and guns in America that I found fascinating. Paging friend and Friend of the Blog, Caitlin Kelly to weigh in with some more thoughts on the subject…seeing as how she literally wrote the book on the subject.

Star Wars costumes, go forth and read! I particularly appreciate the shout out to the fact that while the prequels were…forgettable (seriously, let’s forget about them), Padme’s costumes were incredible. Also shout out to “sensible,” flat soled shoes, in defiance of patriarchy up to and including the needle scratch space bikinis, for the ladies needing to kick serious tail.

Why the hell not? Let’s explore the costumes of Hamilton too, while we’re at it!

This house…that bathtub

The woman behind the Fornasetti face.

Also from Messy Nessy Chic, the fashion that nearly shut down Paris.

  1. The exhibition looks fabulous. Enjoy! 🙂

    And I wholeheartedly support buying less by buying better. Have you discovered Jigsaw? Their clothes are very well-made and their ethical standards are high. Some of their stuff is pricey, but they have good sales.

    I got this lovely dress in their winter sale — an absolute bargain! And I love their double-fronted T-shirts. I have four of them in various colours and they’re staples in my wardrobe.

    Have a wonderful Sunday!
