Lena Dunham's Book Proposal

  • Lena Dunham’s book proposal was leaked. Looks like I’ve got a little reading to do this weekend.

  • Have you seen this article that’s been floating around about women and likability? I agreed with some of it and the general premise, but are we really still stuck at this point where you can only be seen as a nice girl or a bitch?

  • A home so pretty and pink, it’s practically gilded.

  • The 50 best couples in fashion’s history.

  • I knew Annie Mohaupt from way back when we were both startup indie business (I had my stationery line, and she had her shoes). She’s still going strong with Mohop, and I loved reading this story about how she brought manufacturing back to Chicago after trying to move production overseas to China.

    I really like Lena Dunham (loved Tiny Furniture) but was quite surprised at the $3.7M she got for the book! But, more power to her.

    Btw, I really enjoyed your lessons in BYW.

      And I was surprised too. $3.7 million — wow! I’m sure I’ll be buying it though. I can’t help it; I like her.

    I agree with your point about the likability article. I wish articles like that weren’t so dependent on stereotyping women. But I guess it gets hits and sparks debate so I’m sure its not the last we’ll see of it.

      Anything that goes for controversy is always bound to show up over and over again.

    Nicole, do you know if they removed the link to Lena Dunham’s proposal on Gawker? I saw it Friday, but when I went back to read it just now, I couldn’t find it.
