Books & Looks: Emily

Say hello to Emily!

Book: Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman

I don't really have a #1 favorite book - that's the curse of the English major. And people ask me what my favorite book is a lot - that's the other curse of the English major. So I've developed a strategy: I just tell everyone that Good Omens is my favorite book, simply because it's the one I most want to recommend. Good Omens is a hilarious satire of the apocalypse in which a demon and an angel must work together to keep their beloved Earth from ending, with the added complication being that they've lost the Anti-Christ. (Also, it has a great cover, with a bunch of equally great variations.)

Look: I'm a senior in college this fall, and I've had this floral dress since my senior year of high school. I wore it in my senior photos. I wore it in these photos, which I had taken about two years ago. And I wore it the other day. It's a simple design, it's soft and comfortable, and it's easy to dress up or down, so I wear it a lot. I love the bright floral pattern on the dark background. This dress is getting a little worn, and I know I'll be sad when the time comes for it to hit the throw-away pile, but I also know that I'm going to keep wearing it until then.
