Attention all geeks! If you were a science fair groupie or simply loved biology class, take note: you can grow a personal garden of meat-eating plants with this Desktop Carnivorous Plant Set. When you’re bored in the office or simply want a way to procrastinate when you’re on deadline, this plant set will surely come in handy. Luckily, it comes with a dome to protect your fingers and unsuspecting co-workers. Anything to support geekery!
While we’re not exactly superstitious, it doesn’t hurt to employ a few extra sources of good luck, right? Though we’re not ready to start carrying around a rabbit foot, we’d totally consider a pretty but powerful charm in the form of jewelry. Nicole Richie’s House of Harlow 1960 Horseshoe Bangle toes the line between over the top and chic without going overboard on the kitschiness. Keep it simple by wearing just the horseshoe or load up on bangles and hope for the best in luck and love.
A penny for your thoughts? We’re thinking this Kate Spade coin purse is just about the cutest little accessory we’ve seen in a while. Especially considering that our loose change is usually relegated to the depths of our purses or the cracks in the couch. The quality pouch comes in two color schemes: choose from preppy aqua with a green striped bow or girlier pink with a tan/white bow. Another thought: keeping track of your spare change might actually mean that you’ll start using it.
There’s something to be said for a delicate, lady-like watch. But ladies don’t want their accessories to be “lovely” all the time; sometimes we want them to be awesome. And when that mood hits, a bright-as-hell Nixon watch does the job. The Time Teller P Watch looks like a little piece of pop art and juxtaposes nicely with our posh-meets-tough style.
Summer months are meant for languid afternoon picnics, happy hours that turn into evenings out, and long boozy brunches. The last thing we have time for when it’s warm outside is thinking about what to wear, and though maxi dresses are a simple go-to, they always need that embellishment that only jewelry can bring. But along with this long white dress comes a built-in dramatic gold necklace, meaning we’re dressed and ready to go before our boyfriends. And that’s an accomplishment.
For all the advances in chic bike gear, little has been done about the garish orange reflective vest. Until now. Enter Dargelos, a Brooklyn-based company that makes fashionable garb for cyclists. One of their cutest products: the Velo Nuit Tee, a shirt with Nouvelle Vague-inspired bike illustrations printed with reflective ink, so that you stay visible to cars at night. (Of course, you should really combine it with some flashing lights and extra reflective gear just to be super safe.) Pump it with a cute pony tail, and off you go!
