I’m not saying there’s a practical reason to wear itty bitty clay Starbucks cups on your wrist, but I’m not saying there isn’t either. This bracelet can be customized with any of the 60+ food charms seller CMY Klays makes, but that cute little Starbucks cup is totally my favorite. If Frappuccinos are a little too sweet for your taste, you can opt for an iced coffee charm instead. Top it off with a macaron charm for good measure to satisfy your sweet tooth all day long – minus the actual sugar! [$15, CMYKlays]
There’s something about studs that bring a wee bit of badass to whatever they adorn. While recently shopping around TJ Maxx for a loveseat, I stumbled upon some furniture and home accessories that I loved, and they all had one thing in common— studs. Whether they’re muted metallic or shiny and bright, studs are the perfect way to give your space an edgy, modern vibe. Flip through the gallery to see some studded furniture and embellished decor we love.
Doris Carvalho, a veterinarian and designer from Tampa, has put together Fur You by Doris, a line of purses made of the dog hair that gets left over at the groomer’s salon (read: no dogs are harmed to make them). Carvalho launched a Kickstarter campaign in hopes of raising $15,000 to create and market her first line of 30 bags. The dog hair is sterilized and used to make the yarn that adorns the bags, which are handmade and require about two pounds of fur each. Currently, they cost about $1,000 each, but if they were to be mass produced they’d become significantly less expensive. My first thought about these bags was NOPE, but that’s kind of hypocritical of me, right? People wear fur and leather all the time, and in most cases the animal dies for it, but these bags are cruelty-free. As Carvalho says on her campaign page, “These handbags are ecologically designed to help curve the immense global footprint on the planet, accessories used in the designs are also from raw pieces from the Earth. My product adds value to a sustainable society.” It’s not for me, but I feel like some diehard puppy lovers in the world would spring for this. If you’re into it, think about supporting her campaign — a portion of Carvalho’s profits will go to the Humane Society. [Oddity Central] [Image via Kickstarter]
I’m a summer baby through and through, so while a part of me is mourning the sudden drop in temperature outside, another part is secretly thrilled because tights season is here! Tights season may not be a designated thing, but it should be. They may give the impression that they require effort and an air of fanciness to wear in everyday life, but they’re actually the easiest piece of clothing around for even the laziest among us.

Personally, I think it’s really easy for a leather skirt to look costume-y, hooker-y, or tried-too-hard — no judgment on the first two, if that’s what you’re going for, but aren’t we all hoping to look effortless in our clothing? Anyway, one way to elevate (that’s a fashion industry word) a leather skirt is to pair it with simple unexpected items, like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s striped, long-sleeve T and peep-toe booties. Love it. Get the look after the jump! Keep reading »
