Friday Fancies

IMG_1360I’m definitely one of those people who wear tees whenever possible. And while I’ve racked up quite a collection, I’ve found J. Crew’s options to be among the best. Their tees are so comfortable, yet fitted so nicely that no one would guess you randomly threw one on before running out the door. My favorite at the moment is this Painter Button Boatneck tee. I absolutely love the cut, color, and detailed buttons. The Painter tee is also available in different styles, colors, and patterns.

IMG_1269Have you ever heard of a strawberry pillow? Neither had I until a couple weeks ago. The things you learn when you visit a bakery on a daily basis… A strawberry pillow, which, Google has informed me, is also known as a Pope’s pillow, is made up of strawberries, custard, whipped cream, and chocolate syrup, all enclosed between two halves of a puff pastry. It’s basically a dessert sandwich, which, coincidentally, just happens to be my favorite type of sandwich.

IMG_1366This is practically a public service announcement, but Amazon is currently offering an incredible deal on the Steve Madden Mikka pumps. These patent leather heels are ideal for the office, since they’re not too tall, but are still flattering, like all Steve Madden shoes. I ordered both black and blush (which is actually closer to nude). If you decide to order these, make sure you choose a half-size up from your usual size. I almost never do this, but trust me–in this case, it’s necessary!

IMG_1364I promise I wasn’t planning to feature yet another nail polish here, but I finally left my Essie bubble and had to share. OPI Tickle My France-y is a lovely, neutral tan or beige color, with slightly pink or purple undertones, depending on the lighting. It’s the perfect shade for casual, everyday wear.

Someone, with even less of a life than I have, recorded every single cultural reference from every single episode of The Office and arranged them into various Youtube videos. The Office Time Machine allows you to pick a year and view the subsequent video with all of the show’s cultural references that originated in that particular time period. This makes me so unbelievably happy, not only because The Office is my all-time favorite show, but because it really proves how “culture enriches everything.” Now if only someone would do the same with Gilmore Girls
