Go Green Timepieces

Few things compare to a decent watch. Classic timepieces are functional, sophisticated, and the perfect accessory. But what about in the summertime? Something about hot and humid weather stops us short in the morning before putting on jewelry. Metal sticking to our wrist is gross and irritating. That’s why we’re loving this eco-friendly watch. It’s made of all organic materials — the strap is cotton, the dial is made of bamboo, and the battery is mercury-free (snaps for going green!). The watch is casual and comes in lots of bright color combos to complement days in the sun. Stay cool and green this summer!

Slightly Creepy, Slightly Awesome: The DIY Damien Hirst Skull

Damien Hirst is a British artist known for the freak-out factor in his art. He first got famous for encasing huge dead sharks in tanks of formaldehyde, and in recent years combined bling with bereavement in a diamond-encrusted skull worth about $100 million. Now to be an owner of a Hirst work, if you want one, you no longer need to have Bill Gates’ bank account; you can get discount Damien with this DIY kit put together by the artist. The package comes with a plastic skull, glue, tweezers, a paintbrush, instructions, and 8,601 crystals (the same number used in the original work). The whole shebang costs 50 pounds, or about $76, and nightmares in change. [I Artist London via Another Magazine] Keep reading »

How Far Ahead Do You Think In The Fashion Future?

While merchandise turnover happens every season, it seems most jarring in the summertime. It’s about this time of year that we start noticing heavy knits and jackets in the new arrivals section nestled right in there next to the bikinis. (Take for example, the new arrivals at the Gap: cardigans, hoodies, trenches, and argyle socks.) We understand that this is just how the industry works, that there has to be turnover for sales to succeed. At the same time, the thought of buying a sweater in July makes the room feel hotter than it already is.

Does this bother you? Or are you the type who is already on to the next thing before you can rip the tags off your new purchase? How far in advance do you start thinking about your wardrobe for the next season or even shopping for it? Keep reading »

Hot Or Too Hot: Boot-als

The sandal with ankle sheath (or boot-al as we like to call it, think bootie plus sandal) isn’t an all-new concept. We started seeing the boho-inspired, open-toe designs like these Topshop numbers in the spring, and have had some trouble transitioning with the kicks. You see, come summer, these types of shoes can become sweat farms, creating uncomfortable moisture in the ankle area. As for the fall, they might work out until the temps drop too low for exposed toes. (Unless, tights with these — you think?)

Are you into the boot-al look for summer? Or think they’re a waste of money? [Topshop] Keep reading »

A Blog Called “Cute Boys With Cupcakes”—Need We Say More?

It is a proven fact that if you take two already cute things, combine them, and put them on the internet, that women will have spontaneous squeal-gasms and probably land you a book deal.

It is pictures of cute boys with cupcakes, and you will like it.
