Style Spotting: Book Club Where Reading is Optional

Oct 12, 2011

Today’s post comes from last week’s “book club.” It’s in quotes because we use the loosest definition of book club. Yes, each month we pick a book but the chances we discuss the reading is hit or miss at best. This past month we read “Bossy Pants” by Tina Fey which I’ve read and if you haven’t, you need to. Prepare to laugh out loud (and possibly snort – yup, its that funny).

Okay back to this blog post. So I had super high hopes for this post because our “book club” has a higher than average rate of fashionistas and last week’s meeting was no exception. But then I blew it. I took a bunch of pics and when I got home, I realized I was off my game. Most of my favorite outfits didn’t make this post because I botched up all the photos. I’m blaming it on too much fun, wine and gossip. So stylish fellow readers (both in the BC and my lovely blog readers), I’m sorry and I promise to step up my game for our next meeting.

That being said, I did get a couple good shots of a couple great outfits. Enjoy!

L to R: Cary (from Mary-Elliott) – Unknown, Courtney – Blouse: Old Navy

Cary (on the left) looked amazing. I wish I had a good picture of her full outfit. She is half of the duo that runs Mary-Elliott, where you can spot her rocking fab outfits on the reg. If I could guess, I would say her dress is Milly but I will find out. My jaw literally dropped when Courtney said her blouse was from Old Navy (snag a similar one here). It looked way fancier and it made me want to run out and grab one – tout suite.

I didn’t catch where Frances scooped up this cute outfit (I told you I was off my game). But she looked great. From the denim shirt to the leopard flats and gold jewelry, I loved it all.

Courtney’s pup Gator definitely wasn’t as big of a fan of book club as the rest of us were. I’m thinking he was a little frustrated that we weren’t giving him all the affection he clearly deserved.

  1. so, so cute. when i first moved to new york, i was part of a book club – where no one read the book. we eventually turned it into a wine club, where we would pick a different region every month and learn about the wines. (and drink quite a bit!!)
