- Jinnie Lee (Instagram) wrote about her obsession with vintage souvenir merch from the 1998 Winter Games in Seoul for Racked. Here's a tidbit on the state of her Olympic swag addiction:

At the moment, my collection consists of two sweatshirts, two T-shirts, one jacket, and a gold keychain set — and I can’t stop adding to it. Not only are the bold graphics nonchalantly cool and retro in that late-’80s way, but wearing, for example, a XXIV Summer Games sweatshirt emblazoned with the words “SEOUL, KOREA” and “USA” is an easy statement piece that declares my Korean-American-ness though a piece of clothing. 

- Psst. Roxanne Fequiere (Instagram) is reading a book a week for this entire year. Follow along on her bookish journey here.

- If you've been on Instagram, you've surely come across a powerful message or two emblazoned through cross-stitch. Beth Ward speaks about the modern reimagining of an old trend in her piece on "craftivism" and how we've been creating stitched dissent for centuries over at BUST.
