Rejoice! Club Monaco is finally offering online shopping to its customers. The brand will debut a capsule collection for fall and holiday on Oct. 13 on Shopbop.com. Prices for the 30-piece collection will range from $24 for a pair of over-the-knee socks to $1,100 for a shearling coat. For the customer looking for pieces to wear to work, there are tailored trousers that start at $119 and a camel-colored men’s style blazer for $239.

It’s that special time of the year when women run around trying to figure out what the heck they’re going to be for Halloween. I find myself strangely drawn to this Mrs. Potato Head costume, thanks to The Smoking Jacket. But then there’s the Smurfette option. Or maybe I’ll be Snooki.

I have two big plastic bins of clothing I keep under my bed. One is full of off-season clothing, and the other is, I hate to say it, full of clothes that don’t fit. Most of those items are too small — clothes I’ve outgrown but hang on to in case I ever reach my goal weight again.

Here’s one of those things that makes you go, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Behold Monkey Hangers, which, quite clearly, are unbreakable hangers. I don’t know about you, but replacing trivial household items—like hangers, which I seem to go through like a box of cereal—really annoys me. Can someone please bring the “unbreakable” concept to the rest of the housewares department?
What do you hate constantly buying or replacing for your house, office, closet, car, etc.? [Yanko Design] Keep reading »
