Midnights in Lace

…from Jenna Leigh, plus an A.P.C. overstock sale and a book on celebrity suicides

FLIRTY: As unmentionables go, the Malawi collection from local label Jenna Leigh is dreamy and a little coy – plus, isn’t it nice to take a break from black? This garter jupe in stretch silk is so much more alluring in midnight blue. $119 at jennaleighny.com.

LAST EXIT: Celebrity suicides are tabloid gold, but the desperately human stories behind them rarely get much play. Pick up a particularly seasonal read in Alix Strauss’s just-published “Death Becomes Them: Unearthing the Suicides of the Brilliant, the Famous, and the Notorious” (Harper Paperbacks, $14.99), which seeks to remedy the problem, digging into subtleties of the self-inflicted demises of the likes of Sylvia Plath, Adolf Hitler, Vincent van Gogh, Kurt Cobain, Spalding Gray and others. Available at BookCourt, 163 Court Street, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn; 718-875-3677.

C’EST ANYTHING: If only, we sometimes think, we could throw out our entire wardrobe and replace it with an all-A.P.C. lineup – everything would go (casually, elegantly) with everything else and we’d never have to think about what to wear again. Starting today, pick up pieces for up to 80% off at the French brand’s overstock sale, offering up clothes and accessories for men and women through November 1 at the A.P.C Surplus annex. 33 Grand Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
