If you’re anything like me, constantly carrying around a massive Mary Poppins-sized purse from place to place, you’re about to love me. Quick grocery runs and trips to Starbucks just got a heck of a lot easier, thanks to the SHOLDIT scarf wrap clutch, my new favorite functional and fashionable accessory. Keep reading »
God, I love Etsy. Etsy is life, guys. If you want to express yourself through your possessions but don’t have the skill to make them on your own, Etsy WILL have what you need. It’s like that rule of the internet that says “if it exists, there’s porn for it” — if it exists, an Etsy artist is selling it.
Personally, I’ve gotten way into the swing of “NOPE” lately. I NOPE on social media, I NOPE to catcallers (because that’s really the bottom line, isn’t it?), I NOPE in my articles, I NOPE on my blog, I NOPE to trolls and hate mail, I NOPE when I just don’t friggin’ feel like doin’ stuff. The only thing left is to NOPE my appearance and NOPE my home.
Cue Etsy! Now you can have NOPE with you all the time. You might not even need to say it out loud.
My name is Sophie Leon and I am addicted to online window shopping, which I guess is better than being addicted to just online shopping. I can’t help but open every “New Items!” email and click through every lookbook of the latest fashion porn. Every once in a while, a designer collection catches my eye, but my inner accountant sternly reminds me that my favorite item is out of my price range. I return daily to gaze upon my favorite piece and imagine what it would look like with my current outfit. Months later, if the item goes on sale and I am still obsessing over it, I consider it a sign from the gods. Today, my friends, is one of those days. Keep reading »
Ever since Emma Watson showed up to the Golden Globes in January wearing Dior’s asymmetrical double pearl earrings, I’ve been dying to find a similar pair of front-back earrings. Basically, front-back earrings are when the back of the earring — what would normally be a boring post — is actually a decorative part of the earring. Many of them mimic the look of tunnel earrings without the stretched out piercing hole. Sometimes front-back earrings are even two pairs of earrings in one. When I went to Paris in May, I stumbled upon a little jewelry shop that was selling a pair similar to but decidedly more affordable than the Dior earrings, but the smaller pearls could also be worn separately as plain ol’ studs. So cool! Click through for 10 pairs of front-back earrings I’m totally loving…
I feel like I buy a beach bag every year, but every time warm weather comes around, it’s nowhere to be found, and I have to buy another one. Where do all my beach bags go? Do they get sucked into a vortex in the “off-season storage” section of my closet? Do they meet the same DIY fate as my full-length jeans and I just forget about it? Who knows, but to combat this, I’m going to buy a really nice beach bag this year. One that’s the perfect size, a classic style, and built to last. One that can take me from the beach to the lake to the river to the roadside fish taco shack and look amazing in the process. This anchor print burlap bag will do nicely, don’t you think?

Imagine this: you and your boo are cruisin’ down the highway with the windows down, summer heat warms your face while Lana del Ray’s “West Coast” blasts from the stereo. You reach down for your sunglasses and retrieve a pair of cheap, scratched shades from the dollar store that leave you squinting and embarrassed. That’s not how the story should go, so we’re going to fix that last part…
