Hat Attack is here! The style blogosphere’s newest fabulous linkup party is live! Though my head is too small for most hats, I love the look of a hat and am really enjoying seeing everyone’s favorite millinery on display.
After watching the series Parade’s End (with the incomparable Benedict Cumberbatch) I found myself wanting to know more about the characters and story, so over the last few weeks I’ve been slogging (and I do mean slogging) through the book of the same name by Ford Maddox Ford, originally published as four separate novels between 1924 and 1928. Told mostly in ruminations and reminiscences from various characters’ points of view, the story lurches around and occasionally succumbs to disjointed snippets of actual narrative. I must doff my imaginary cap to the screenwriters of the series who were able to tease a mostly linear story out of this cubist painting of a novel. I also think had I the cultural frames of reference (i.e. had I been British) it might have resonated a bit more. This is regarded as one of the great novels of the early 20th century, mainly because of the literary devices used that make it such an arduous read almost 100 years later.
You still have a couple of days to take advantage of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale prices. I’ve been so pleased with my own Michael Kors watch and wear it daily. Both of these watches above are currently marked down (through this Sunday only) and would be my top picks among the sale items to add to a watch collection: one for more dressy occasions, the other for more casual.
And to kick off your weekend with a bit of levity, 22 Dogs Going Through An Existential Crisis.
What are you reading these days?
