Last week, Ami and I were having a post-Soul Cycle glass of wine – as we do – when a man wearing a slightly askew black fedora and sunglasses wandered into the bar. “Oof, Justin Timberlake circa 2003 called and wants his hat back,” I whispered. Ami took a quick glance and grimaced as well. A second later, I realized something. “Hey! That’s Justin Theroux!” It seems Jennifer Aniston’s fiance — who, despite the catty way I feel about is headwear, is hilarious (have you seen “Wanderlust”?!) — was the man wearing the talisman of doucheitude. See, Timberlake in a fedora in 2003 was a brief moment in time when the look was kind of okay, but Theroux in a fedora in 2013? EGADS NO. Generally speaking, a fedora on a man should serve as a giant red flag. (And I say this, people, as someone who really, really love Channing Tatum, who never met a fedora he didn’t like and wear obsessively.) Keep reading »
I gave away three-quarters of my sunglasses when I moved, but I still have a substantial
hoarding problem collection. If you love sunglasses as much as I do, then you know they’re not just accessories, but works of art that deserve to be displayed! Looking for a fun way to store (and show off) your sunnies that doesn’t involve tossing them on the coffee table? Click on the gallery for 7 cute, easy DIY ideas…
I’m pretty much convinced that the photos I take using the Instagram app on my iPhone are, like, high art, so I was stoked to learn about Instawatch, from accessories brand May28th, which turns your Instagram snaps into a watch face. After choosing your photo (you can also upload any non-Instagram photo you want) and selecting a band color, ordering your new wristwatch is just a couple more clicks away. The worst part of making my first Instawatch was choosing which photo to feature — again, my Instagram photos are just amazing – but I eventually settled on this Southern California sunset photo. The brilliant, dusky colors (caused my all that smog) and the palm tree silhouettes will remind me of where I grew up whenever I check the time. Rad. [$44, Instawatch.me]
Sunglasses are, by far, my favorite accessory. I’m constantly buying new pairs and saying dumb things like, “‘Shades’ is my middle name!” In reality, my middle name is Rose, so obviously I need these rose-embellished cat eye shades. [$14, Nordstrom]

Johnny Depp has never met a scarf he didn’t like. Johnny Depp loves scarves so much, that he wears them with nearly every ensemble, sometimes piling scarf on top of scarf. He even wears scarves as belts! (I heard that Johnny Depp once wore nine scarves at once. At the time, I thought it was just a rumor, but I’ve started to believe it could be true.) So who better than Johnny Depp to model six light and airy scarves that are perfect for spring?
I love infusing my water with different flavors–lemon, lime, mint, strawberry, cucumber, oh my!–but I don’t like the little bits of soggy fruit and leaves that end up floating around in my glass. This glass flavor-infuser water bottle allows you to put your favorite fruits in their own little chamber, which gives you all of the flavor and none of the debris. How refreshing!

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, or so we’ve heard, but we’ll argue that rose gold is kind of our new squeeze. We don’t discriminate when it comes to precious metals, but there’s something about this one in particular that’s just so pretty. Its warm pinkish tone is so flattering on hands, and it’s less expected than the usual bronze and silver. For now, at least — rose gold is blowing up, and we may or may not be jumping on the bandwagon. Get the details on these 13 pretty rose gold pieces, and maybe we can match!
