Link-tastic! 28 May 2010

 The Memorial Day weekend is upon us, Fabulous Readers!

As I mentioned earlier this week, I was featured (along with quite a few other fabulous bloggers!) on What I Wore. I'm really intrigued by the various ways the style challenge was interpreted.

Sal at Already Pretty writes something every week that I find thoughtful, inspiring, or insightful. This week, she's got two humdingers: letting go of the last great bargain mentality and the great fashionable/feminist divide myth.

A bit of fashion design history: Stacy from taffetadarlings talks Desses.

Finally, to slake your Memorial Day thirsts, why not try a delicious-sounding lemonade cocktail from Mrs. Lilien? If you don't have premade simple syrup, no sweat: just put equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan and heat over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is clear. Let it cool before you use it in a drink! I make up good-sized batches of simple syrup (~2c. at a time) and store it in a bottle in the fridge. In addition to cocktails, it's great in iced tea and coffee.

Have a fabulous (long) weekend!
