    Just read this fascinating essay on pockets, and thought you (and other awesome women) would enjoy it! (tried to send a message but something happened—error!!)

    Also not surprised about the self esteem article. Although I think my fifties (after age 51) were pretty self esteem strong. This is a subject I’ve discussed at length with my daughter hoping that she will avoid the pitfalls.

    The only thing I found slightly interesting about NYFW street style was how many women were NOT wearing uncomfortable looking shoes (i.e. super high spike heels). Otherwise, I thought most of the looks (or lewks) were pretty chaotic––which is fashion commentary on the state of our country.

    that Jezebel article about what Texas schools teach their kids is so depressing I will proceed directly to those lovely fall jackets.

    I’m a product of Texas schools. The whole rise of the religious right began w/ taking over Texas schoolboards when I was in jr high. First thing they did was ban books, starting w/ Maya Angelou’s “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings.” I had some great teachers who ignored the bullshit and did their own thing. May that grand Texas tradition continue. Also, go Beto!

    Thank you for sharing the Private Life trailer, I will be watching this. Looks promising that they hit some of the notes of what it’s really like.
