If you’re a lover of costume jewelry, like we are, then you’re going to want to bookmark PNKElephant.com. Not only does this accessories site have of-the-moment rings, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces, but it also has really affordable prices. Everything is $30 or less, with many pieces priced between $7 and $10. Yes, you read that correctly. I sampled the fall collection yesterday, and can also tell you that the quality of PNKElephant jewelry is very high, unlike some of their competitors. The fall collection features military-inspired pieces done in matte silver and gold, but the PNKElephant team assured me that there will be more glitzy jewelry items for holiday. Take a look at this affordable and chic jewelry after the jump. Keep reading »
If you ever go to France, an absolute must on your tour should be La Durée, the famous maker of fashionable macaroons (or macarons as the French call them). They’re a favorite among the stylish set for their bright and sugary colors and gorgeous packaging. There’s good news for both fans of the sweets and those who can’t get to Paris—La Durée has made a collection of squeal-worthy stationery, notebooks, candles, and key chains that you can get via Opening Ceremony. Each creation is like a little treasure in itself. Think stickers depicting cakes, cookies, and Parisian images as well as sticky notes decorated with dog portraits and card sets with gold and pink color themes. We’re thinking these would make the perfect holiday stocking stuffers and office gifts (but we’d kind of rather keep them all for ourselves). [$10-55, Opening Ceremony] Keep reading »
We love designer Kate Bauman’s knuckle duster made of engagement rings. It’s called ‘Til Death Do Us Part. That’s bound to make any man think twice about leaving his woman. [This isn't happiness] Keep reading »
The downside to texting in winter? Freezing fingertips. The upside? Cute fingerless gloves that let you show off your manicure (added bonus). We’re digging these ribbed cashmere-blend “glovelettes” from J.Crew for their extra-long sleeves, which add warmth on days when you don’t have a long-sleeve layer on under your coat. Or, use them to extend the wearing period of your cape-like jackets by another few weeks.
Unless you’re in the mafia, the pinky often gets left out when you accessorize. And you know what? It’s tired of being passed over just so your ring finger can wear some wedding ring, whatever, like that’s important. Now you can adorn both digits with this double ring by Slow and Steady Wins the Race. The simple silver design has interlocking settings, joining your two fingers together in holy fashimony.
The above objects of desire — Christian Louboutin’s Big Lips Booty boots, Valentino’s Leopard Hair Calf Bow Tote, and Lanvin’s Leopard-Print Knee Boot — all cost way more than $1,000! And while leopard print continues to be a big trend, we can’t justify spending a month’s rent and food allowance on boots or a bag. Call us practical. So instead, we found other leopard-print shoes, boots, and bags that won’t break the budget because none cost more than $200. See what we found after the jump. Keep reading »
