I’m So Disappointed That Dolce & Gabbana’s $4,150 Crown Is Sold Out

In the context of fashion, the term “aspirational” only goes so far. A $500 pair of shoes, a $1,000 dress, a $2,000 purse: these things are aspirational, to be sure. But a $4,150 Dolce & Gabbana gold-plated Swarovski crystal crown? That veers straight off the track of aspirations and directly into “fucking ridiculous” territory. Which…

A Comprehensive Guide To Fall Handbags (All Under $300!)

It’s that time of year again. I’m not even going to say it.

Instead, you’d say haughtily, I’ll be using my ostrich feather pen to write my messages from now on. I’ve employed a carrier pigeon to send them hither

Animals Are Not Purses, And Other Obvious Realities

I can’t believe we need to go over this again, but animals are living, breathing beings. They are not inanimate objects into which you can store your lipgloss, wallet and cell phone, so why, why, why, would you carry a dog around like that. This woman was snapped with Dog-as-Purse in tow on the street…

Wine Glass Ring Pops Make The World A Better Place

When I was a kid I was obsessed with ring pops. Obsessed. So obsessed that even when one of my rotten brothers would throw my favorite watermelon one under the couch, I would retrieve it, rinse off the dog hair, and continue licking it while watching “The Magic School Bus.” So you can imagine my…

Could Your Designer Bag Prevent Your Boyfriend From Cheating?

Back in college, a girl had a crush on my longtime boyfriend and she was persistent in letting him know it. She flirted with him shamelessly and she even did it in front of me. I tried to nicely (albeit, obviously) clue her in that we were engaged. I casually flashed my ring at her,…

Must Haves: 10 Cool Cuff Bracelets

Accessorizing isn’t really my strong suit — more items on my person just translates to more items to be lost in a freak incident. Well, not that freak, I lose things all the time. Cuff bracelets are great because they’re substantial, and because they can actually be adjusted to fit one’s (unsettlingly tiny, in my…
