Looking for unique jewelry that suggests you may be interested in having someone cut across your dotted line? This Punctirus piece can be worn as a necklace or a bracelet, and the strange design makes it appear that a pair of tiny scissors are preparing to cut off your head or nip your hand off at the wrist. For those girls who like their accessories a bit more, um, daring, this would be a perfect fit. [NOTCOT] Keep reading »
“A bunch of my friends are getting married over the next few months and I want to recycle a few of the dresses I already own. My favorite is a little black dress that’s pretty but maybe not exciting enough to just wear with black shoes and call it a day. How can I accessorize it to look more fun? Help!–Moira“
Lucky for you, Moira, this is a actually a pretty easy thing to do. Most important is deciding which color group you want your accessories to fall under. (Nothing should be too matchy-matchy, but a general family of color is a good place to start.) We’re big fans of silver and pewter both with black and with several other colors (meaning that you could potentially reuse the accessories for other weddings with other dresses), so that’s where we’ll be looking.

OK, so it’s a little pricey for a tie, but pretty cool once you take a closer look. No, ladies and gentlemen, that tie is not made of mere fabric; it’s actually a whole lot of recycled cassette tape.This strikes us as the perfect gift for that music lover who “has everything” because, let’s face it, there’s a good chance he does not in fact have this.

Can’t quite commit to the popular androgynous fashion trend sweeping the nation? Don’t want to wear a boy-cut without having a bit of girlish flair in there? Now you can go both ways with this Adam & Eve purse from Patricia Field. The metallic and lacquer torso clutch is half-man, half-woman—meaning you can swing both ways and wear it with both your busty-boob dresses and your andro ponchos. [Fashion Tribes] Keep reading »
Certain products are made to simulate real things for quite useful reasons—think Splenda, dildos and Skype video chat. And then there are things that when “brought to life” fall in the realm of just plain scary. That’s what we first thought about these lifelike breast baby bottles by Mimijumi. The “Very Hungry” baby bottle is designed to make suckling babes take to a plastic cap like they would a mother’s teat.
Maybe this would be incredibly useful to get a newborn to take to a bottle … but maybe create some weird sexual conceptions in the future? (OK, total exaggeration.) So, you tell us—is this lifelike bottle something that sucks you in? Or just plain sucks? [TrendHunter.com] Keep reading »
At first glance this leather coffee sleeve by Azumi & David seems like one of those superfluous girl-who-has-everything accessories. Then again, how many times a week do you slip a paper sleeve around your morning Starbucks, or even double up on cups to avoid scalding your hands? This ostentatious muff would certainly cut down the waste … yet possibly increase the amount of people rolling their eyes at you. [$57.59, Colette] Keep reading »
Buzzfeed says it best: “Someone in Germany was so bored he/she turned a bunch of bands such as Nine Inch Nails, Vampire Weekend and Bat for Lashes into costume jewelery.” But while we appreciate the art project aspect of it and all (go see the Animal Collective one, it’s cute), we’d really appreciate it if this dude/chick would start selling them.

Right now, my feet are encased in tights, two pairs of socks, and huge boots in order to ward off the snowy slush coating the streets. Meanwhile, my pretty heels stare at me from their perch begging to be worn. But come spring it seems I’ll be wrapping my toes again, since there’s a new fashion accessory for feet, and it’s not toe cleavage. Instead of flaunting her little piggies, Vicki Kysella created Lingerie Toes because she just hated seeing her toe peds in flesh colors. So she started her own company called Voet Hosiery and began designing her mini socks. The coverings range in color, and retail for $14 per pair. We have to applaud her entrepreneurship, but we’re not totally sold on the need for toe decoration. Would you wear toe lingerie with your heels? Keep reading »
The staff of Dazed Digital got a sneak peek at some of the goods from Louis Vuitton‘s men’s collection. The spring 2010 line apparently includes these very shiny dress shoes covered in silver sequins. As far as sequins in men’s fashion go, they’ve thankfully stayed put in the closets of Chippendale’s dancers. Is this Louis Vuitton’s attempt to make them manly?
In the realm of weird new shoe trends for guys, many of you were actually not that bothered by men’s shoes with a bit of heel. So, what about this flamboyant footwear? We have to say we could totally see Kanye rocking a pair …
So what’s the word, twinkle toes? [Dazed Digital] Keep reading »
