November 1st. Can you believe it?! I think this technically means that the holiday season has begun, but I’m just focused on managing my sugar hangover from last night (so.many.butterfingers!) with a green juice, lots of coffee, and some great reads.

My friends at Ship & Shape are launching their fall/winter collection today! These are some incredibly talented and thoughtful women who are doing really great things… from the sneak peek images they sent (above), I know this season will be better than ever! Be sure to check out their online shop!

Some of my favorite American-made brands are 25% off  till Sunday at The Dreslyn – I’d like this subtly sexy ALC dress, this classic Pamela Love ring, my favorite Rag & Bone skinnies, and this gorgeous Raquel Allegra silk tie-dye top in my closet. immediately.

One really easy productivity trick (totally doing this as of yesterday!)

This collaboration is pretty perfect.

The catalyst that led to Richard Branson starting Virgin Airlines.

Anna Wintour  on Conde Nast, having all the answers, and learning as we go.

Bonobos launches a women’s line : AYR (all year round). Bonobos produces quite a bit of their men’s lines in the US, so I hope AYR will follow suit!

and in case you missed it, Five Lessons from the Martha Stewart American Made Workshop and a visit to the Shinola flagship!

I share these articles as I come across them on Twitter, and am getting better at posting them to Facebook as well! I’d love it if you would follow along!
