Some amazing things

Some amazing things I’ve been enjoying or thinking about this week, in case you’re interested. First, two random thoughts on style:

(1) High waisted jeans are wonderful. In particular, these high waisted jeans. I have them in classic blue, light blue, and black and wear them pretty much constantly. (Also – here’s a good deal on Jeffrey Campbell booties that pair well with a slightly cropped jean.)

(2) The style in Napoleon Dynamite was ahead of its time. (I was just saying this.)

And now, can we talk about Shivani Bhagwan’s choreography?

Other things I’ve been reading / thinking about…

Some words on privacy — here’s a TED talk from Glenn Greenwald on why privacy matters.

And finally…

Unidos por Puerto Rico is a disaster-relief fund for Puerto Rico and Mexico, launched by Beatriz Rosselló, the first lady of Puerto Rico. You can make a donation, and funds go toward providing aid and support to those affected by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane María. Also, here’s a Lifehacker post on various organizations you can donate to. (And, bonus, here’s a post on why you may not want to earmark how your funds can/should be spent by the organizations you donate to. Lots of useful information in the comments section too.)

By the way – send me the best things you’ve found online on Twitter or DM me on Instagram.

P.S. – A week left until Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 8. Also, in case you’re interested: 5 Instagram accounts for you to follow, and also, some more weekend links. Have a happy weekend.
