You might not be able to leap, soar through the air, or dance on beat like an Alvin Ailey dancer, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be a patron of the famed dance troupe. This All Over Print Tote Bag, which reads Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in a graphic pattern, will hold all your everyday essentials and workout wear, but also makes a fantastic and stylish baby bag for the mom in your life. Carrying this bag will also help you to remember to dance to the beat of your own drum, even if you’re the only one who can hear it.
When you find an awesome, affordable Etsy seller, you often feel like you’ve just won the jackpot, which is exactly the case with Noble Town Vintage’s jewelry. Re-purposed and revived, the designs are anything but overdone. Think chevron charms dangling on long necklaces, earrings with dainty brass cubes hanging from chains, art deco plaques, or chunky amethyst stones paired with worn-in chain. Our favorite: the vintage brass bar necklace, which features a horizontal bar between two strands with a choice of quirky pendants.
Rompers have become a must-have item for beating the sweltering summer heat. This cute and breezy Victoria’s Secret romper pulls double-duty: it works as a cover-up at the beach but is also festively chic for a BBQ at a friend’s house (just add a T-shirt and a little razzle-dazzle). It’s flattering for all body types, and the roomy fit means you can eat as much as you want without fear of a noticeable paunch.
We know it’s not healthy to grab a granola bar on the go, but who wants to whip up an omelette in the morning instead of hitting snooze one or two more times? Not us. That’s why we’re craving this multi-tasking toaster. Toast up to four pieces of bread while you poach eggs for an egg and English muffin sandwich all in about four minutes. You can even warm pre-cooked meat in this thing. Toast, boil, and warm up your breakfast while you do your makeup? Sounds like a multi-tasking plan to us.
Nothing ruins a night out dancing like having to carry a big bag or an awkward clutch — you’re trying to grind all up in some hot dude’s business and your shoulder bag is smacking him in the gut in a decidedly un-sexy way. Put an end to that situation with a compact cross-body bag that’ll stay put while you shake it. We’re particularly into Madewell’s cute little incarnation of a dancing bag. Everything from the cool color to the badass hardware has us craving it pretty hard.
Few things compare to a decent watch. Classic timepieces are functional, sophisticated, and the perfect accessory. But what about in the summertime? Something about hot and humid weather stops us short in the morning before putting on jewelry. Metal sticking to our wrist is gross and irritating. That’s why we’re loving this eco-friendly watch. It’s made of all organic materials — the strap is cotton, the dial is made of bamboo, and the battery is mercury-free (snaps for going green!). The watch is casual and comes in lots of bright color combos to complement days in the sun. Stay cool and green this summer!
