the look for less ~ jeffrey campbell boots

If you’re loving the Jeffrey Campbell chunky heel look in the classic “Lita” this spring but don’t want to drop the money to buy a pair, we found a perfect pair of imitation Lita boots at UrbanOg.com. They’re just as edgy as the originals, but about 1/3 of the price.

By the way, we’re in love with the huge platforms that add the signature look to Jeffrey Campbell. They’re sold in major department stores (click here to see Nordstrom’s selection) and also at smaller clothing stores, like Nasty Gal and Urban Outfitters.

obsessed with lookbook

If you ever need inspiration for an outfit, lookbook should be your first thought. We linked you to the United States section, but the photos are from real people all over the world. If you’re searching for a specific brand, color, piece of clothing, or any other minor detail in an outfit, lookbook can help you find the perfect ensemble. We’re going to start posting to lookbook soon, so keep an eye out!

book club ~ no one is here except all of us ~ ramona ausubel

A group of our friends decided to create a book club post-college to stay in touch and have a reason to drink wine. This month’s book was No One Is Here Except All of Us by Ramona Ausubel. We wanted to post some pictures from our meeting and give you a summary of the book we read because it was simply amazing. It was a Holocaust story, but it was an interesting angle. It told the story of people who were disconnected from the center of the Holocaust and were affected in ways that no one would have thought of. They were isolated from the big cities, never heard of a concentration camp, yet their lives changed 100%. It was sort of a weird concept for a book–create another world by telling stories and keeping their minds off of their imminent demise, but Ausubel is such a wonderful writer it was easy to see past the strange concept. Her writing is so beautiful I can honestly say that it was a pleasure to read. Highly recommended!
