Thursday's Thinking of Food

So, I haven't posted anything from this bygone series in quite a while...

I am excited to hear about this film by (and starring) Jon Favreau.  He's been a favorite of mine since Swingers 
Sidenote: I also fell in love with Vince Vaughn while watching Swingers.  I still love him.

Chef looks to be funny and chock-full of amazing-looking food, and movie stars.  According to this SceneSC blog post, the soundtrack's pretty awesome as well.

Here's to hoping it plays somewhere nearby for us Columbians.

Soapbox Moment: What is the Opportunity Gap?
Basically, low-income students of color in America lack the same access to opportunity as compared to their white peers.  Combined with the educational disparities these demographics also face, known as the achievement gap, this is a deleterious abhorrence.  It is in everyone's best interest to seek ways to enhance equal opportunity and achievement for all.

I am a sucker for a cool infographic and I also like Good magazine.

Stitch Fix #2

I have been waiting patiently for a piece of jewelry to be included in my Stitch Fix box, and last month it showed up.  And I am in love with it.  It is by far my favorite item from this fix.

This month's fix also included this lovely white blouse that I couldn't wait to wear:

It's super-comfortable and I'll wear it with jeans or a casual skirt on the weekends, and it's nice enough to wear to work too.  The lace detail is not usually something I would pick out for myself, but I really like it.

I am also in love with this black and white striped cotton skirt.   I requested a summery-skirt, and my stylist delivered!

I also received this skirt, which was made of a great material, and I liked the pattern, but it was not very flattering on my hips:

I also received this dress, which I liked OK, but not great,so back it went:

Once again, I was really pleased with my fix.  I received 3 pieces that I will wear in various settings all throughout spring and summer.  Well done, Stitch Fix!
