What could be said about Anthropologie’s Rickshaw (yes, a real thing) that Anthropologie couldn’t say better? Just listen to their whimsical description of the $2,200 culturally questionable bikemobile:
While on a
trip to India work project to find new objects to culturally appropriate some of our team got tired of walking among the poors flagged down a rickshaw for a spur-of-the-moment tour of the markets where we find cheap goods and sell them at offensively ridiculous prices the town. Inspired by the opportunity to make money ride and feeling a bit light-headed from not eating whimsical, we decided to design our own set of wheels, with some very special touches like a collapsible kantha-fabric canopy, handlebar streamers, a bell for brrring-bringing on the bike path and even a headlight that illuminates when the pedals are cranked (warning: does not come with ethnically ambiguous driver). An instant conversation starter on the road or on display, we’ll bet your neighbors and friends will find this all a bit troubling you’re whisked away on the adventure of a lifetime once you hop on — or into — our crazy expensive and completely inappropriate quixotic carriage. No two are exactly alike.
And good news! You can order up to 15 of them at a time! [Anthropologie]
I think of Anne Hathaway as an arbiter of class. I speak for myself, but I’ve never heard or read anything that depicted Anne to be any less than a contemporary Audrey … except for maybe the financial crimes of her ex-BF, but we can’t hold that against her. Earlier this week, Anne attended the Princess Grace Awards Gala here in NYC alongside Julie Andrews and Princess Charlene of Monaco (wow, she hangs out with such riffraff!). When I saw the pictures from the event online, I was ridiculously impressed by her ability to carry this embellished dress. I am a harsh critic of sparkle and shine on clothing, but Anne’s Valentino could make a convert out of me. This got me thinking: what other celebrities have rocked sparkly dresses with total class? There’s not an ounce of garishness on any of these ladies.
When it comes to jewelry, my philosophy is the more, the better. Coco Chanel’s advice was to remove one accessory before leaving the house. Mine is to pile it on until I’m content. But after receiving JustFab’s Ready to Rock necklace, I think Coco was on to something. This big, bold rhinestone necklace is so attention-grabbing that I let it to stand on its own — and really it doesn’t need any help from other meager baubles. This necklace can transform a simple T-shirt and blazer to dinner-appropriate, and an LBD to holiday-ready, but it won’t break the bank. An image consultant friend of mine thought it cost upwards of $75 after feeling its weight, but fortunately it’s less than $50!
Everyone thinks that summer’s the harshest time for hair–and it can be. But winter does it’s fair share of damage, too. When you least expect it, your bouncy, full locks can be destroyed by the whipping wind and dry air the colder months bring. With that in mind, we recommend you moisturize your hair just as you would your skin–with a rich and nutritive hair mask or serum at least once a week. It’ll keep your strands from becoming brittle and breaking, and help you increase the time between hair cuts. Which everybody likes.
