– WWD reviewed Christie Brinkley’s clothes choices for her divorce trial. “Armed with a uniform of crisp button-down shirts, dainty cardigans and figure-hugging pencil skirts from Ralph Lauren and Prada (with a little Gap mixed in for soccer-mom street cred), Brinkley has onlookers wondering what Cook was thinking….” [WWD (sub req’d)]

– There’s an article in the WSJ style section that we’re not sure about: how floods are becoming popular for men’s suits (floods = higher hemlines so men bare their ankles). We saw the Thom Browne collection for Brooks Brothers and thought, oh, this must be for the creative types who shop there, but now we’re a bit curious: has anyone seen men wearing floods in your corporate environment? Please comment below if you get a chance. (Truth be told, we’re not even sure if we would recommend floods or capris for women’s outfits!) Speak of the devil…

– If you’ve been purchasing purses and shoes with the hopes of their being investment pieces, read about Ztail.com, a new service that will help you track the worth of things in your closet (or of other collections you’ve kept). [SheFinds]

– Finally: read about how to get the most for your organic buck. [Greenopolis via Lifehacker]
