I have very expensive taste, as I am often reminded by my boyfriend, who has gotten to witness this firsthand for many years. That’s why I was so excited to come across this Garden Ring by Fantasy Jewelry. It’s inspired by one of my all-time FAVORITE jewelry collections, Dior Fine Joaillerie: Milly Carnivora and Incroyables & Merveileuses, in which massive stones are surrounded by enameled flowers and stone-encrusted sweet insects.

I’m not sure whom these are intended for but in the description they are said to be “great under your tutu.” How often are you faced with that problem, “Oh, I really want to wear my TUTU but I just don’t know what to wear underneath it!”? Well, now you know: man’s oldest problem solved with really ugly shorts. Thanks, internets. [$24, Chaotic Clothing] Keep reading »
Some scientists believe there’s a link between breast cancer and aluminum — which is one of the main ingredients in most antiperspirants. Enter Duross & Langel’s line of all-natural, aluminum-free deodorants. They are effective and both earth- and health-conscious. I’ve been making the trek to the company’s Philadelphia store for my balms and unguents, but I’ve just discovered they sell online too! I love their deodorant–it smells great, is all-natural and really works.
