I was honored and charmed to receive an “I love this blog” award from the delightful Songy last week, and, as is the custom, I’m going to pass it on.
Here are some of the style blogs I read daily, in random order:
The Thoughtful Dresser, which has a winning combination of style and all things literary from across the pond;
Thumbelina Fashionista, for a carefully vetted selection of clothes accompanied by beautifully written prose;
May/December, for a genial and welcoming approach to city/country style;
My Marrakesh, for a riot of gorgeous color, the author's humanitarianism, and her disarmingly charming voice;
K-Line, for her fellow Canadian-ness and love of “prim with an edge.”

Wintour in Fall revisited: Melissa has a smart post on BlogHer about the Anna-Wintour-photos-on-HuffPost episode.
After receiving complaints, HuffPost disingenuously countered that readers were too quick to look at the Wintour photos as negative, that it wasn’t implying that Anna was unattractive, so—so there! We’re at fault for seeing Anna as imperfect.
Melissa responded to this and linked to me, which is how I found her post. She analyzes the photos in a significant manner: she compares them to that famous illustration from psychology class—look at it one way and it’s an elderly woman; look at another and it’s a young beauty. Go check it out. . .

Readers have spoken and so have my daughters: I’m going for the gold. Sorry brown/black shoes; you just weren’t a showstopper. The search continues . . .

If you read the NYT this weekend, you might imagine that I’d have something to say about the fashionable professors photographer for the magazine. I do indeed. Stay tuned!
