OH, OSCAR: There aren’t too many runway shows I’ll follow up on after the fact, but Oscar de la Renta is always one of ’em. The designs are the epitome of ladylike glamour — and with lots of florals to wow.

SPEAKING OF FASHION WEEK: God, I’m glad it’s over, and I avoided it to begin with. But, my girl Hallie wrote the most amazing post about everything you could ever want to know about this semi-annual madhouse. It’s enlightening whether you’re into fashion or not!

OH EM DASH: Because yes, punctuation matters. Here, an easy to follow guide on all those pesky punctuation rules. Your ≠ you’re, people.

DO I OR DON’T I: Really enjoyed reading this essay about “What if you just don’t know if you want kids?” While it’s an entirely personal matter, this has been a conundrum for me since…forever. Good reading for anyone who feels similarly.

IT MUST BE IN THE WATER: Or Mercury is in retrograde or something. Mackenzie wrote a great essay about uncertainty as well, and how she’s getting out of her funk.

BURGUNDY AND GRAY: This little outfit has me excited to bust out my burgundy cords and don a light gray sweater. Simple, and chic.

PASSWORD123: An interesting (if unsexy) editorial on killing the online security question. Makes me glad I have 2-step verification set up on my most important accounts!

PLEASE BE FOR SALE SOON: Joe and I spend a ridiculous amount of time looking at houses. Often in Marin County. Yes, we live nearly 3000 miles from there. We’re dreamers, what can I say. Anyway, this house stopped me in my tracks this week. When can I move in?

THE CANDY SHOP: It’s that time again… The Candy page has been updated for you to indulge in. I have so much fun putting this page together!

TGIF, happy weekend, etc, etc etc. Enjoy it, friends!

    Thanks for posting the Do I or Don’t I essay. It was a good read. And I love the mention of birth control roulette. I am in the same boat. Our trip to France was to be “thee trip” before sitting down and figuring out that next stage of our lives. But we’re both avoiding the discussion like the plague. I honestly have no idea either. I feel ya.

    Thank you SO much for sharing that article on children. I have always been ambivalent, leaning towards no, and the older I get the less that seems to change (if anything, it leans more to a “no”) and as all of my cousins and even siblings have settled down it has turned into me being constantly asked, in a shocked manner, “you don’t want kids??”. I’m also not convinced marriage is for me, at least not a truly permanent one; it’s something I’ve had to come to terms with compared to my formative years, when you just assume these things will come to you. Sure, they’re hard decisions, but I’d rather make the right ones and live a satisfying life than be constantly afraid that I made the wrong choices. I’ve bookmarked several articles they linked to, as well, for further introspection on the topic.

    Oscar= s.t.u.n.n.i.n.g. Makes me wish I were headed to fashion week next year (pleasepleaseplease)! Hallie’s recaps have been awesome reads so far. And THAT HOUSE my goodness. I’ll take it if you don’t! ;)
