Lovely Links: 4/9/10

The Budget Babe shares some fabulous tips for building your style from the ground up.

Florals. They’re everywhere this season. But do they project an unintended message of demure femininity?

Are you a sellout designer? Consumer? Blogger? I don’t necessarily agree with everything this post asserts, but it certainly asks some thought-provoking questions.

The ever-brilliant Deja Pseu wrote, “I’m the first person to say that not enough people here in the US are eating healthfully or being optimally active, but a healthy diet of real food in moderate portions and daily activity do not always result in a culturally sanctioned physique.” Amen to THAT.

Need a pick-me-up? These photos of male models making goofy faces will probably do the trick.

Medicinal Marzipan’s guest post on The Demoiselles is required reading, friends. As is her personal blog.

A brief history of the housedress. Fascinating!

It’s a good thing Nubby lives so far away, because if we lived in the same town? I’d steal these boots right offa her.

Another examination of the relationship between glamour and feminism. (Via Oranges and Apples.)

Is anyone out there NOT in love with Zooey Deschanel’s style? (I crush harder on Emily as an actress, but Zooey’s taste in duds cannot be beat.)

Jezebel gives us a fabulous rumination on tattoos, good girls, body politics, and manners. (Via Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing.)

Everyone hates it when undies go renegade.

Little girls voted anchorwoman, but the grown-ups chimed in and now we have computer engineer Barbie.

And from the Department of Random: My dear friend Annie Wilder (who contributed to last week’s post about style and body image at any age) is writing a book of trucker ghost stories (EEEE!) and looking for material. Are any of you truckers? Friends of or lovers of truckers? Please check out and pass along the info for contributors – any spooky tale from the road is welcome!
