Weekend Link Roundup

August 06, 2016

1. Nordstrom's anniversary sale is nearing its end (prices go up 08/08/16). These Adidas Superstar Sneakers (shown above in White/Black; on sale in two other colorways) that I have been wearing regularly are included in selected colorways. They run a full size large—I normally wear a size 7 in sneakers and took these in a size 6.

3. What Does "Superfood" Even Mean, Anyway? via New York Magazine

4. For a limited time, all sale styles are an extra 25% off at Anthropologie; the discount will apply automatically in cart. Here are my picks: Pineapple Halter Dress, Soludos Canvas Espadrille Sneakers, Serenella Silk Scarf, Cartographer Dress, Toucan Dress, Boteh Maxi Dress, Isabel Tank, Tiered Cenote Dress, Sungrove Maxi Dress, Flower Days Tee, and Senna Dress.

5. The Case for the American Mall via Racked

6. There's Growing Evidence That Venus Was Once Habitable via Gizmodo

7. What's the Deal with the Food at T.J. Maxx? via Bon Appétit Magazine (I find the concept of "treasure hunt merchandising philosophy" fascinating; is it an allotrope of your average artificial scarcity or is it a completely different beast? I also love this quote from Expensive People: "Messes are made by people who want, but don’t know what they want, let alone how to get it.”)

8. Hundreds of new styles have been added to the ASOS Outlet. Here are some of my favorites: Lace A-Line Dress, Ruffle Detail Column Dress, Bardot Pencil Dress, Fringed Cape, Floral Shift Dress, Floral Bow Dress, Embroidered Slip Dress, Shirt Dress, Cold Shoulder Dress, Stripe Lace Column Dress, and Hummingbird Print Dress.

9. The History of the Call Center Explains How Customer Service Got So Annoying via Vice

10. In the best news I've read all year, Bojangles (currently confined to the Carolinas and a few random outposts along the Eastern Seaboard, with its northernmost location in Reading, PA) just signed an agreement to expand outside its core market. The sad news is that it's expanding westward, and not northward. I am jealous of everyone who lives in southern Alabama and southeast Mississippi.
