Forgetful Franny? Here’s one way to never lose a shopping list or draw a blank again: To-Do Tattoos, temporaries that stick a lined form on your hand so you can fill in details and take them with you. Or, at least, if you’re the type to write crap on your hands anyhow, now you can be more organized about it. The pack of 12 tattoos also comes with a skin-safe, washable pen for you to write your notes with whether it’s groceries, stuff to do at work, or your five-year plan.
Of course, there are a few other places we could think of slapping a to-do list … other than your hands. In case someone else is forgetting some important details. [WorldWideFred.com] Keep reading »
One of my new year’s resolutions for 2009 was to cook at least two new recipes each month, and now that we’re heading into October, I have, oh, about 15 recipes I need to quickly make up for. No problem — with this specialty trio pan I can cook three dishes at once, so if I figure I can use it once or twice a week and be back on track by November. Or … I can save it for the last two weeks of December and cram in 20 new dishes, which is probably what I’m going to do! Anyone have a good recipe (or 8) for lasagna? [$29.99, Amazon] Keep reading »
Clearly a fan of the odd collaborations of late, Comme des Garconnes is now teaming up with Apple Corps Ltd. (the dudes who manage The Beatles’ legacy) to put out a line of Beatles-inspired Comme des Garconnes bags. No images are out yet, but the collection debuts in London in November, then in Tokyo before distribution opens up. We’re hoping and assuming the sure-to-be-interesting bags will make their way overseas and into our closets. These have serious collector’s item written all over them. But not literally, we hope.

For the Red Cross’s 150th Anniversary, Louis Vuitton and friends are joining forces to really celebrate in style. Photog Annie Liebovitz and artist Damien Hirst have each designed Louis Vuitton pieces for the collection to be auctioned off at Sotheby’s on November 17. Even Marc Jacobs got in on the action with a travel trunk for his dogs. Not only should this make you want to fly around the world, but it makes everyone else want to see you doing it. (Hey, a girl can dream, right?) After the jump, check out these soon-to-be auctioned items. Keep reading »
Just kidding. We wouldn’t wear this for such an occasion. It’s more like a at-a-birthday-party-for-your-grandma kind of outfit. So appropriate! [Milan, 9/28/09] Keep reading »
Thank you H&M for consistently making designer creations available to the masses. Continuing on their collaboration takeover, the brand brought on cult favorite Sonia Rykiel to create two, yes two, collections, just in time for the holidays. The French designer will launch not only knitwear and accessories, but she’ll be the very first to bring designer lingerie to H&M.
The first iteration of her designs–the sexy underpinnings–will be available on December 5th in 1500 stores, as well as her own. Sadly, her knitwear line will be sold in only 250 stores on February 20th; thus, the line in major cities is sure to be astronomical. At least those in the U.K. fare a better chance at scooping up some Rykiel pieces, as H&M’s finally planning on starting online shopping this fall. When can we shop online H&M? Guess we’ll have to stick with eBay. [WWD]

This gorgeous Siamese cat deserves an honorable mention for pulling off Amy Winehouse‘s signature beehive with elegant aplomb. To get the look, you’ll need a rat tail comb and multiple doses of hairspray. This one should do the trick. [Pets Rock 2010] Keep reading »
While generally reserved for strippers, Lucite heels might break into the mainstream thanks to their presence on the Prada runway and in Maison Martin Margiela’s collection. But the ones we’ve seen are pricey — to the tune of a grand and more — and some would say they still look cheap.
So, if clear heels aren’t your thing, you can still jump on the see-through bandwagon. There are always clear accessories or clear nails, the latter which was at Prada’s spring 2010 show and seems to be on the forefront of transparent since we certainly haven’t seen them before.
Not to be confused with nude nails or ones painted with clear polish, transparent nails are clear extensions that go atop normal nails. They sort of resemble when we put pieces of Scotch tape on our hands at a very young age. While Miuccia Prada designs clothes that launch trends, we’re not sure who’s going to get behind this one. Maybe the people who are already into Lucite heels? [British Vogue] Keep reading »
Even though message tees are so passé, you can still show people what you’re made of, literally. The “Ingredients” T-shirt by U.K.-based graphic designer and illustrator Roper lists all the elements that make up the human body. We never considered that we were made of silver and gold, but we guess it’s possible to inhale or ingest particles without realizing it. Isn’t geek chic fun!
