Today’s weekend reading is a little late – sorry, kids, but I was busy making eggs florentine with this simple-as recipe for Hollandaise sauce. Behold my success!

This week the fashion world was all a-flutter about the goings-on between the New York TimesCathy Horyn and Hedi Slimane, and the Business of Fashion hit the PR nail on the head with this piece on how YSL’s PR team got things so very wrong.

Still with the Business of Fashion, fancy making money while shopping? Here’s how.

Earlier this week I took a look at Louis Vuitton’s S/S show, reviewed Anna dello Russo’s H&M collection and I went through Christina Aguilera’s video for Your Body, frame by frame, so you don’t have to.

The Financial Times has a great piece about how the luxury fashion world is turning to China for its manufacturing needs.

If the photograph of the kissing soldier at the close of the second World War was actually a photograph of a man kissing an unwilling woman, does that change how you look at it?

Refinery29 tried out what I’m always threatening to: five outfits in one shade. Top to toe beige, anyone? It may not feel like it’s right up your street, but it always looks cute . . . (anyone who went to NUI Galway will know what I’m talking about; there was a girl in college when I was there who always wore one colour, people called her “China doll girl” – and despite the fact that I didn’t know her at all, I definitely remember her)

Did you catch this post during the week, on what feminist have left? If not, catch it now. It’s five minutes you’ll never regret spending.

As part of Positive Ageing Week (and I know, this isn’t strictly speaking a reading piece), Kirsteen and Glenda from Xposé had their mums on camera getting all dressed up.

I started writing for Beaut.ie this week, too (I know, where do I find the time?!) and started off with a post on Anne Hathaway’s wedding dress and, later in the week, on a simple slimming trick you may never have thought of. You can find my regular posts on Wednesdays and Fridays.

And that’s all, folks! Enjoy Downton tonight and don’t forget to tune in first thing tomorrow for more from Fash Mob, the winner of our theloop.ie competition and a brand new competition for some lovely pampering goodies!
