Crave: Catherine Rapetti Single Love Knot Bracelets

These soft, woven bangles remind us of the barrel stitch gimp bracelets we’d attempt to make in summer camp. We’d try to make one fit our wrist but would always run out of materials and get stuck with a stubby key chain. These leather bracelets are just as colorful, and they’re a major step up from plastic lanyard. [$93, CatherineRapetti.com] Keep reading »

Crave: Hard Tail Zip Leggings

True story: We saw an adorable kid wearing these black zipper leggings and we had to know who made them. Her response: “They’re Hard Tail, and they make them in big people size, too.” Yes, we checked, and they do make them in “big people size.” Who knew fifth-graders had such a great sense of style?

Crave: Margo Morrison Jewelry (Win A Pair!)

We’re obsessed with Margo Morrison’s jewelry line. She creates beautiful pieces out materials like abalone shell, peach moonstone, and labradorite. And we’re not alone in our love of Morrison’s unique pieces. Her fan following includes Whitney Port, Blake Lively and Julia Roberts. Not a bad roster. All of her jewelry — from dainty drop earrings to dramatic, multi-strand necklaces — look amazing with a white T-shirt and jeans or your favorite little black dress. We especially love these itty-bitty oval, turquoise drop earrings. They’re effortlessly classy — just like us! [$75, MargoMorrison.com]

We’re giving away five pairs of these Margo Morrison turquoise drop earrings, but you have to work if you want them. The five best commenters for this coming week—from today, Friday, Jan. 2 through Thursday, Jan. 8—will be awarded with a pair. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

Crave: Godiva Dark Chocolate Candy Cane Crunch (Win It!)

We love how pretty these little chocolates look in a candy dish. Oh, come on, you must have a candy dish—they’re so grandma-chic. Unfortunately, ours is constantly empty because we can’t stop eating these Dark Chocolate Candy Cane Crunch bites by Godiva. They’re a bit spicy from the crushed peppermint topping, but the white chocolate inside and the dark chocolate coating balance everything out. Just one more reason to love the holiday season. [$15, Godiva]

We’re giving away five packages of Godiva Candy Cane Crunch, but you have to work if you want one.

Crave: Nikon Coolpix S60

It might be a bit of a splurge, but this new Nikon digital camera is so worth it. The Coolpix S60 (yes, the one in the commercials with Ashton) has a 3.5 inch touch panel LCD screen and you can use a handy little wand to write messages on the screen which display on the picture (a la Perez Hilton). Genius, right? We’re partial to the burgundy color on the left…it also comes in black, white, pink, bronze and red, so pick your color and start shooting. [$279.99, Amazon.com] Keep reading »

Crave: Creative Nail Design’s Stickey Base Coat

We love getting weekly manicures (especially at places that give mini neck massages while your nails are drying), but it’s kind of painful to fork over $15-ish dollars each week — that’s $780 a year! Which is why we’re newly obsessed with Creative Nail Design’s Stickey Base Coat. We tested it for about two months and discovered that if you put your polish on top when it’s slightly wet, it won’t budge for two weeks straight. Your nails (and wallet) will thank you. [$7, CND]

We’re giving away five bottles of CND’s Stickey Base Coat, but you have to work if you want your nails to look good. The five best commenters for this coming week — from today, Friday, Dec. 19 through Thursday, Dec. 25 — will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

Crave: CC Skye Safety Pin Necklace

Remember those beaded safety pin bracelets from camp? Yes, the elastic ones with the multi-colored seed beads. We never, ever, thought safety pin jewelry would make a comeback. However, ever since we spotted this sparkly, gold safety pin necklace, we’ve been obsessed. It’s delicate and yet it adds an element of toughness to any outfit. So, we stand corrected. Office supplies can be fashionable. [$100, CC Skye] Keep reading »

Crave: Retta Le Ritz Stationery

Sure, e-mail is convenient, but there is something to be said for a hand-written note. They’re classy, meaningful, and come on, who doesn’t like getting real mail?Just remember, the stationery you use sends a message. This lemon-patterned paper by Retta Le Ritz looks like it’s made from beautiful, vintage wallpaper and is so gorgeous, you almost don’t want to write on it. [$20, Retta Le Ritz] Keep reading »

Crave: Mimobot Designer USB Flash Drives

There are just no words for how cute these little designer USB flash drives are. Well, actually, there are a ton, but we’ll refrain from gushing too much. The 55 different “characters” are beyond adorable, and you can even get dress yours in a mini fuzzy hoodie and attach it to your keychain. Think of them as modern-day Tamagotchis (oh come on, you know you had one back in the day), but you don’t have to feed them. [from $34.95, Mimoco.com] Keep reading »

Crave: Lulu’s Matte Jersey Knit Vest

You know how when you find an item you really love, you want to wear it every day? When that happens, getting dressed in the morning can be pretty frustrating. No matter what else you put on, you really want to wear that one piece of clothing. This gray jersey vest will become a favorite, for sure. Its slouchy mini pockets add the perfect amount of pop.
