“Super average leather brown clunkers, but with pentacle-esque stitching. Like the Christine O’Donnell witch malarky, in shoe form.”
—Tavi, being hilarious and witty as usual on Style Rookie. Think you’d find a pair of these Marios Schwab clogs in Miss O’Donnell‘s closet? [Style Rookie] Keep reading »
If you ever go to France, an absolute must on your tour should be La Durée, the famous maker of fashionable macaroons (or macarons as the French call them). They’re a favorite among the stylish set for their bright and sugary colors and gorgeous packaging. There’s good news for both fans of the sweets and those who can’t get to Paris—La Durée has made a collection of squeal-worthy stationery, notebooks, candles, and key chains that you can get via Opening Ceremony. Each creation is like a little treasure in itself. Think stickers depicting cakes, cookies, and Parisian images as well as sticky notes decorated with dog portraits and card sets with gold and pink color themes. We’re thinking these would make the perfect holiday stocking stuffers and office gifts (but we’d kind of rather keep them all for ourselves). [$10-55, Opening Ceremony] Keep reading »
Halloween is one of those days out of the year meant for creating hilarious memories. (Or completely stupid ones. We admit that we have plenty.)

After the jump, Frisky editors reveal some of the best and most hilarious costumes they’ve seen—or worn themselves! Maybe you’ll find some inspiration for your costume contest. Either way, share your own and join in on the fun! Keep reading »
Russell Greenberg from Cameo by RUX has created his idea of a modern cameo. He carves resin bangles and 18-karat gold and platinum rings into 3D portraits of anyone’s profile. And all he needs is a photograph. While personalized jewelry is usually an awesome gift, these bangles are so clunky they’re ugly. And really no one is going to notice it’s someone’s profile. A large amount of craftsmanship and work goes into each of these pieces, I’m sure, but I can think of many more things to spend $350 on rather than a portrait bracelet. The rings are actually beautiful, though, and would make a meaningful wedding band, but cost $1,700 a pop. What do you think? Are these portrait bangles and rings awesome gifts or a phenomenal waste of money? [Refinery 29] Keep reading »
There aren’t many opportunities to use an actual pen nowadays: Most companies offer online bill pay, smart phones contain an appointment book and notepad, and ATMs don’t require deposit envelopes anymore. But every once in a while, you might want to send a handwritten note or greeting card, instead of an e-card. On those rare occasions, we hope you use The Seven Year Pen, which will last at least seven years. This high-quality marker is also eco-friendly because it reduces waste — think of how much discarded pens contribute to our plastic waste. The Seven Year Pen comes in five designs, but we’re partial to the glasses because we like to indulge our inner style geek.
