AG Stevie Ankle Jeans - I've gotten a bit particular about Made in the USA items. These jeans are made in the US (in LA—I think all the fabric is cut in Mexico, but at least they are being transparent about it), and they are a wonder. I happened upon these in a couple of different places: Anthro, Calypso, the Saks outlet… It seems that I love to wear ridiculously colored jeans and the rest of the world does not, hence I can even get them on sale (smile).
Hunting and Gathering: It took me three tries to get into this book, but once I'd really started, I had a hard time putting it down. Trying to describe it would be quite a spoiler, but essentially it is about three (sensitive, interesting, lost & found) people in Paris. It's lovely!
