What did I spend some time doing tonight? Translating some book leak screenshots from Portuguese to English using Google Translate.

A book from a series I really like is coming out at the end of the month and I heard there were some spoilers but in Portuguese.

I am the type of person who reads the last page of a book because if the ending really sucks I won’t read it.

I am aware that is dumb, but I do it for movies and tv shows as well. It can’t be helped.

Anyway, I feel good about the spoilers, so I now look forward to reading it.

There is nothing like reading a whole series only to be let down by the final book.

On to the next thing.

I bought this cardigan because it reminded me a lot of the By Malene Birger version with is about $600 US more. Both are wool.

I figured it was going to sell out fast because these pieces tend to, so I didn’t leave myself a lot of time to think about it.

The more expensive version is more cinched at the waist, but I think you can get that similar look by sizing down since it is oversized.

It’s pricey but I bought it on a day they had a 25% off sale plus I had a 15% off coupon in my membership account that was about to expire.

So it was significantly less. Anyway, you can see it here when I wore it yesterday.

I also bought a pair of vintage Levi’s a few weeks back, but they aren’t my typical 501s I get. They are 505’s and I really like the fit.

So if you are hunting for some vintage Levi’s 501s and come across a pair of 505s in a great wash, I recommend giving them shot. They are less expensive and have a great cut.

In case you missed it, I put together a 90s minimalist capsule wardrobe yesterday.
