Watermelon wouldn’t be our first choice for an eau de parfum. Who shops for fragrances thinking, “Hey, I’d really like to smell like a watermelon today?” To be more accurate, the official scents in Kate Spade‘s new eau de parfum Twirl are “pink watermelon, blackberry and red current with additional notes of orange blossom, star jasmine, sweet magnolia, and French macaron.” I would describe Twirl as “chic fruity”: you’ll smell like a fancy lady who shops at Kate Spade, but one with a whimsical and girly side.

So there was a little something last night called the World Series in which the San Francisco Giants beat the Texas Rangers (just in case you hadn’t heard). Did you notice any of the players wearing jewelry? (Or as we like to call male accessories: “mewelry.”) Turns out, it’s quite common for baseball players to wear necklaces, not so much as good luck charms or fashion statements, but to help their game. The rope-like strands contain magnets and aqua titanium, which supposedly “stabilize your electric current inside the body,” allowing you to “enhance your performance” by increasing flexibility and balance, or treating arthritis if you have it. There’s little scientific evidence to back up these claims, but still some big-hitting baseball stars swear by them. Not sure it’s a trend we would hop on for fashion or therapy … but we suppose it’s good to know. [Fox News, MLB Shop] Keep reading »

Behold the Tee PJ, an extra-long T-shirt-style pajama outfit for men and women. Now, we don’t actually find the lady version to be all that offensive … it’s more the guy’s Tee PJ that really puts us off. A full-length nightgown doesn’t exactly stir the fire in our loins, if you know what we’re talking about. Is it just us, or are these pajama designs kind of weird? [Wittmann Textiles] Keep reading »
