Happy Friday!

Hope you have a weekend full of relaxing ahead of you! I know I do! Let's kick off your weekend reading, shall we?

ONE // 7 Days Out Netflix docuseries, featuring Karl Lagerfeld 

'Tis the season when my Netflix queue gets really full -- and I'm looking forward to this series especially!

TWO // RBG and the new SCOTUS photo

I don't know about you, but I can't stop laughing at this photo. The pure emotion. The disenchantment. The disbelief in her eyes. Just too good.

THREE // 30 Days, 30 Dresses

They say all good things must come to an end, so it's with a sad note that I announce Mary's 30 Days, 30 Dresses series ends today but with a roundup of really incredible Valentine's Day picks -- and yours truly weighs in!

FOUR // The Best Divorce Gifts 

Particularly poignant gifts, once you read number 6 below.

FIVE // Marvelous Mrs. Maisel's Carnegie Deli opens in Nolita!

Hold on, making reservations!

SIX // The Next Chapter by Garance Dore

I finally had a chance to read this essay by Garance Dore about her recent separation from her husband and the unfortunate (and inevitable) stigma that divorces comes with, especially in your 40s as a woman. As someone who has heard the phrase, "Single women over a certain age should move out of New York City" more times than she would care to admit (and subsequently almost vomited), I love Garance's candor, grace and perspective on this -- highly recommend you read it!  And who knows, perhaps I'll have to weigh in soon with my own thoughts in an upcoming post.

SEVEN // Thank U, Next

Let's just address the elephant in the room, shall we? Thoughts?

EIGHT // Vogue's interview with Victoria's Secret CMO Ed Razek

There's a lot to be said about the comments made in this interview and I could write many posts about just how wrong they all are -- so in the meantime, I'd love to hear your thoughts about Razek's comments regarding the show's purposeful exclusion of plus size and transgender models because they are only interested in selling a "fantasy."
