The Mixed Bouquet Infinity Scarf’s combination of different patterns creates a lovely paradox: It clashes with everything and therefore goes with everything. Throw it on to add interest to an all-black outfit, or take the eclectic look to the max by pairing it with a plaid trench coat and textured hosiery. However you choose to style it, it’s always an attention-grabber.
As much as I do on occasion enjoy a classic White Castle steamed patty and bun, not in a million years would I ever allow a candle made to smell like the fast food chain into my home. This is, however, exactly what White Castle is offering now with their very own burger and onions scented candle. Interested? “The candle has a top note of diced sweet onions and crisp pickle, the middle notes are beef patty, cheese and ketchup, and bottom note is a warm burger bun. It all comes together to create this amazing aroma of a White Castle Slider,” says Laura Slatkin, creator of the scent. But will the candle make you run to the bathroom as quickly as the real thing?!

Just when you thought all the fervor over “Where the Wild Things Are” had died down, Maison Martin Margiela designs this fur headdress. Not only is this thing made of 100 percent Murmansky fur, (i.e., fur from the raccoon dog), but it’s also extremely large and hideous. Not for us. Nope. [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »
As a woman with 70 pairs of pumps (and clearly, a bevy of shoe-fetishists for exes), I can tell you that there is no such thing as too high a heel! Nobody understands this better than British shoe retailer Parmars. Next year, they’ll unleash the Sky Heel, a nearly 9-inch platform for crazy shoe whores like me who date super tall men and have health insurance (just in case of a lil’ slip ‘n’ fall). The heels are being made in glittery red or gold (classy?) and retail for around 65 smackers. Kinda steep for pumps that’ll never leave my bedroom, but the look on all my ex-boyfriends’ faces when they see a pic of me in these will be priceless! Mwahahahahaha! Above, I have made a mock-up of what I hope the design will look like, but in 2011, the real deal will be revealed. The checkout line forms behind me! [SWNS] Keep reading »
Another year, another totally embarrassing United Bamboo Cat Calendar. We didn’t think they could top themselves, and yet, here we are, staring down Professor J. Catsworthy in his special United Bamboo tailored jacket. You can order the 2011 version of the calendar via their site — and we highly recommend you do. After all, what’s better than 12 full months of totally mortified cats in clothing? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
With the holidays right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about gifts. Unless you’re my mom, in which case you started thinking about this year’s holiday gifts on December 26th of last year. But for the rest of us, mid-to-late November is a sane time to get the ball rolling. And if you think you might like to make any homemade gifts, you should probably get cracking pronto — at least on the planning. In the comments, I’d love to hear your ideas for DIY gifts — things you’ve done in the past, ideas you’ve seen elsewhere and would like to try, things you’ve received and loved — especially if they don’t require too much in the way of sewing, knitting or crafty skills. After the jump, a few ideas to get things started. Keep reading »
