Once upon a time, when a respectable young lady traveled to the big, bad city, she was accompanied by a chaperone, lest anyone get the wrong idea about her virtue. The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty is a fictionalized tale about a Wichita woman in 1922 who was hired to accompany a 15-year-old Louise Brooks to New York City for the summer so the teen could attend a dance school. Only a few years later, Louise Brooks became a world famous silent film star. It’s a picturesque tale of that Great Gatsby-era when women bobbed their hair and rising hemlines had everyone in a tizzy. If you love the peek at the changing roles of women on “Mad Men” in the 1960s, you’ll love The Chaperone to see how roles were even changing for their mothers a generation before. [$26.95, Powells]

Well, it looks like it’s going to be another long, cold, single winter with plenty of extra room in my bed for a Dream Man Arm Pillow. I’ll take it in Black, obviously. He looks like he might also have been goth in high school, so, we have that in common. I can imagine our life together: he won’t complain if I want to read Rainer Maria Rilke poems aloud, or if I want to watch a “RuPaul’s Drag Race” marathon, or if I’m crushing his arm. Actually, winter is starting to sound really great. [$24.99, Overstock]

My lounge clothing wardrobe is currently made up solely of garments that have been retired from other parts of my wardrobe. Adidas workout pants with a hole in the crotch? Lounge pants! Sweater with a mustard stain on it? Lounging sweater! And while this technique has saved me a lot of money, it’s starting to make me feel really sloppy. I think it might be time to shell out for some lounge clothes that are actually cute. These plaid flannel pajama pants with a contrasting polka dot lining should do the trick. [$29.95, Aerie]

When I first heard that online dating site HowAboutWe was offering a new date planning service for couples, I thought: Seriously? You’re going to pay a website to plan dates for you? And then I thought about how my boyfriend and I spend most of our nights sprawled across the couch, desperately scanning Netflix for a movie to watch, or waiting for ”The Voice” results, and I realized, HowAboutWe dates, you’re my only hope. For just $22 a month, membership to the HowAboutWe Couples Club grants you access to their monthly DateBook, offering a wide variety of dating options — that are already planned for you. The special member rate gets you extreme discounts on dates like a wine tasting and tapas dinner at Entwine, or a private guided tour of the Museum of Moving Images. The best part? Membership means that certain dates are actually free! Plus, coming soon, you get discounts on things like movie tickets, gym memberships and more. Sadly, this service is only available in NYC at the moment, but hopefully will expand nationwide soon. No more couch and movie nights for me. [$22 a month, HowAboutWe for Couples]

Don’t bother asking me whether I’m a dog person or a cat person, because I have immeasurable affection for both species. (I also love, though strictly from afar, foxes, coyotes, wolves, lions, leopards, and essentially anything else you might find on your average safari.) But I’ll confess: I cultivate a soft spot for felines that runs deep. I strongly identify with their capricious temperaments, desire to hide for days beneath beds, couches, and appliances, and frank disinterest in displays of physical affection except when it suits them. Okay, so I’m probably going to be alone for the rest of my life, but at least I’ll have cats, and these adorable gold Vermeil Cat Face Studs. I might as well have a sign on my face that says, “Don’t touch unless I’m purring.” [$32, Catbird]

This festive Advent calendar from Starbucks gives you a piece of chocolate every day throughout the month of January until Christmas, plus five tiny presents inside. Don’t tell Santa that your sweet tooth has been very naughty this year. [$29.95, Starbucks Store]

Not Your Mama’s Tights

If you’re like me, you probably go through a pair or two of tights a week. Also, if you’re like me, you probably grew up with the brand No Nonsense — the line of mom-friendly hosiery and tights that practically everyone wore in the ’80s. Well times have changed, and so has the company, which now offers young, hip and modern tights and hose. In addition to their standard sheer pantyhose selections, they’ve got opaque tights, comfy leggings and beautifully patterned hosiery. And the best part? These tights are durable and well-made; no more buying multiple pairs of tights to get you through the month. [Prices Vary, No Nonsense]
