This is a “Playtime Belt Buckle” that’s currently for sale on Etsy. It is composed of a totally functional Etch A Sketch, and I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve never been so keenly aware of the erotic qualities of those little nobs before. Damn. [The Daily What]
If your efforts to land a rich prince have been unsuccessful thus far, maybe it’s time to switch up your footwear choices. An excellent bet for aspiring princesses? DSW’s new Glass Slipper collection, a collaboration with Disney to celebrate the October 2nd release of “Cinderella” on Blu-Ray. Available in stores and online on October 1st, the limited edition collection will include a variety of heels (none of which are actually made of glass) embellished with fairytale-worthy jewel and lace accents, priced from $59.95 to $89.95. Each shoe will include an embossed carriage logo, but alas, no tracking mechanism for that inevitable moment when it falls off your foot as you rush out of a ball at the stroke of midnight. Guess you’ll still have to rely on a determined prince and Craigslist missed connections to be reunited with your lost slipper. [Racked]

On Friday I went to a Fun. concert. Like, the band Fun. And it was really fun. And all this fun talk is getting very confusing. Anyway, to the point: lead singer Nate Ruess put on a great show, and his look was on point: rolled skinny jeans, white oxfords, and a classic navy blazer. After the concert not only did I have “We Are Young” stuck in my head for the rest of the weekend (and possible the rest of my life), I was dying to steal Nate’s preppy/hipster style for myself. I’ll totally be rocking this look with a messy bun and hot pink lipstick. Shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »
It’s Tuesday. Most of us are sitting behind a desk nursing our first (or second?) cup of coffee. Let’s do some collective daydreaming that we’re cooling off in a giant jungle swimming hole, shall we? This photo was originally posted on a Facebook travel page as “spotted in Mexico,” but a commenter pointed out that it’s actually the Sua Ocean Trench in Samoa. Who wants to come along for my fact-checking mission? [Facebook]
Full disclosure: I love me some Khloe Kardashian Odom. I think she’s just the right mix of funny, smart, raunchy, and honest, and if she ever invited me over to her palace for cocktails and gossip on the condition that I change my name to Kinona, I would totally do it. That being said, the outfit Khloe wore to promote her and Lamar’s new perfume, “Unbreakable,” is, well, a little broken. I really have no idea what’s going on with those (painted?) jeans, and the two-tone leather jacket and strappy stiletto sandals aren’t helping. Khloe, I’m konfused. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
