Listen Up: We’re #ReadingThings (Again) and Talking to the Designer Behind Some of Our Dreamiest Dresses
This week, we’ve got a lotta gorgeousness happening. Christine Alcalay, creator of a couple of our favorite dress editions of all time (including one Claire wore to her rehearsal dinner and this somehow-still-in-stock gem) stops by to talk about how handmade clothes get, well, made. And! We’re here with another round of #ReadingThings, all about the insanely beautifully illustrated graphic novel This One Summer by Jillian and Mariko Tamaki.
Another lovely thing: This episode of #ReadingThings is brought to you by our friends at Warby Parker. They offer free try-on (shipping is covered both ways!), so you can test out your next pair on your couch while catching up on an excellent book. To scope out a collection of C&E’s hand-selected specs, head on over to warbyparker.com/ofakind.
Special and amazing guest Christine Alcalay on the opposite of fast fashion…
You can still snag her perfectly A-line, pinstriped dress on our site right now—and go behind-the-scenes of her NYC Garment District factory, too.
On #ReadingThings: This One Summer by Jillian and Mariko Tamaki…
Casting (with a little bit of time travel): a young Alia Shawkat or Millie Bobby Brown as Windy; Maddie Zeigler, a young Elle Fanning, or Rowan Blanchard as Rose, Hailee Steinfeld as Jenny, the pregnant teen; Kathryn Hahn, a mom-of-a-tween-age Catherine Keener, or Drew Barrymore as Windy’s mom; Kate Winslet, Laura Dern, Emily Mortimer, or Winona Ryder as Rose’s mom; Josh Hopkins as Windy’s dad; Lynn Cohen as the grandma.
Pick up our next #ReadingThings book, Saint Mazie by Jami Attenberg! Her new book, All Grown Up, is probably on hold at your library for the next zillion months, so this is a good place to start if ya don’t know her. We’re discussing it May 29th!
