Packing challenge: weekend in the sun

I’m getting a lot of requests from you guys regarding this one, and here’s my main tip: pick a super-tight color palette and stick to it.

Dresses with grown-up hemlines: pre-spring, floral-print edition

alc floral

“It must be time for another installment of ‘Dresses with grown-up hemlines,’ mustn’t it be?” wrote a reader named Deborah last week, and she’s right: the last time I delivered this quarterly(ish) feature was October (and to be quite honest, I am never in a rush to put it together, for the same reason so many of you are eager to read it— few things are harder than finding decent contenders).  These are all spring dresses, but I would wear each of them right now, layered up: I love the soft/hard look of florals with black tights,  boots and a cardigan. The silhouette on this first one is crazy-flattering, with an unexpected color combination—white and black with pops of orange—that totally works.

Very party-on-the-bottom, business-on-the-top.

A super-abstract print with a totally work-worthy  silhouette.

Shirtdress-inspired, but so much more wearable.

  • These 1930s-era government-issued Venereal Disease awareness posters are pretty great. (Collector’s Weekly)
  • How delightful: a restored version of Grey Gardens is being re-released in March. (The Frisky)
  • The dinosaurs were possibly tripping their brains out. (Death and Taxes)
  • Happy birthday, Judy Blume! Please, guys, make my day and share your best Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret and Forever stories in the comments. (Yahoo)
  • And finally: I am so, so sad this morning to learn of the death of New York Times media critic, big-hearted crank and badass among badasses David Carr. I’ve never met anyone who called it so consistently as he saw it. (NY Times)

Cheap and chic of the week

The other day, I saw Maria Cornejo, and she was wearing a pair of old-school black and white Nikes just like these with her fancy leather pants, and that might sound weird and wrong, but it looked looked so damn cool.
