Last week two other bloggers, whose work may be of interest to you, featured me in interviews and links. Every time this happens I find myself involuntarily exclaiming, “I am so lucky!”
First, an interview by Sylvia at 40+ Style. One question she asked was, “Has your style changed at all after turning 40? I answered, “It got better.” For the rest of the discussion, please take a look here. It was interesting to see a whole set of my outfits, all at once, and I’m still thinking about how it’s possible to be certain one has a personal style, and be wholly incapable of describing said style concisely.
Second, Sally at Already Pretty included my post on 50+ makeup for a big event in her Lovely Links roundup. (Technically 1.5 weeks ago, but we’ll ignore my gaffe, shall we?) Sally’s Friday links list is my favorite of type – the variety of style and body image posts she puts together always offers something worth reading. You can see an example, here.
So, to new readers, welcome. This Thursday we will be taking one of our occasional detours to the world of literature and close reading, with a post from Professor C. You can watch the 1997 version of Henry James’s Wings of a Dove streaming on Netflix, if you’d like to join in.
Otherwise, the blog will continue with the usual posts on style in the social context, style for the over-40, outfits, objects of desire, and Saturday morning musings. Onward.
