Would You Spend Up To $300 On A Friendship Bracelet?

We love these super fun one-of-a-kind friendship bracelets by designers Frieda and Nellie, though ranging from $150 to $300, are these pricey bracelets worth the splurge? The combination of saturated colors, rhinestones and vintage charms are fantastic, but something inside me keeps saying we should just be making these ourselves.

Would You Wear This Over-The-Top Chain Vest?

We love chains, lots of them. We love mixing metals and harnesses too. But does Arden B go overboard with this chain vest? All those beads and tassels and pearls and chains of different lengths around the chest pulling and drooping at the same time. And what would one wear with it? You could alway…

Totally DIY-Able Nail Art

I love nail art—been doing it for years, um, been getting it DID for years. I had the raddest, weirdest nails waaaaay before Willow Smith was on the scene. Swarovski crystals, 3D designs that were painstakingly done one petal at a time, multi-color hand-painted scenes, etc -- all done by my amazing nail artist…

Self-Toning Clothing: Miracle Or Misrepresentation?

Between Thanksgiving and all of the holiday dinners that will be going down this month, a few extra pounds will probably be hiding under our belts. And as tried and true as diet and exercise can be to limit the extra poundage we put on, a faster, more immediate “cure” sounds better. There are Spanx,…

Great Find: Bright And Happy Slap Watches

We all loved slap bracelets when we were kids -- we played with them (until they were banned), simply because they’re addictively fun. Duh. Now we can be “adults” and have our slap, too, by wearing these slap bracelet watches. The cool rubber is super durable and the watch face can be popped out and…

Do Not Want: Straggly Muppet Dress

Growing up with "The Muppets" has been a way of life for the children of the last several generations. The quirky and adorable creatures taught us how to sing, dance, and work things out with friends. And as much as we owe them for all of the life lessons they’ve taught us, the way to…

Would You Wear: A Black Feather Cape?

Feathers are all the rage right now -- and we definitely love most of what’s out there. From Chanel’s feather dress to wild fascinators, feathers can be absolutely stunning. We’ve also been seeing feather capes, such as this one, and have been puzzling over how and where one might wear such…
