We’re calling it—the lady’s drink of 2010? Johnnie Walker Black on the rocks. Unexpected, sexy, impressive. So, let’s talk serious scotch for a second. Ice can easily ruin a fine malt, either by adding weird freezer taste to it, or simply by diluting it too quickly. Purists will want to check out these whisky stones by Teroforma. The Vermont-milled soap stones need only be chilled and then added to your drink. They’re reusable, so once you’re thoroughly soused, wash them off, and stick them back in the freezer until your next drinking round. (Water conservation, my friend.)
The recent attempted car bombing in New York City might have you wary of visiting the Big Apple, but that doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate the skyline from afar. The miniature Empire State Building and Chrysler Building will keep your bookshelf organized and show your love for a city full of beautiful architecture. And for those who live in NYC, these skyline bookends can serve as a reminder for why you love a city that sometimes doesn’t love ya back.
Not to pull the “SATC” fashion card, but this Forever 21 dress is a classic Charlotte. With a business-chic construction, she’d strut it down Park Avenue in the daytime, but also be able to work it downtown after hours thanks to that sexy mesh collar and peek-a-boo back. What’s one more LBD in your closet? They’re always put to use somehow, whether you’re going for the girly or the girls’ night out.
In our digital age, it’s easy enough to sext or send naughty digital pics. However, we’d hardly call that way of communicating romantic. Instead, try these cute Poketo capsule letters, which let you write something sweet on a tiny piece of paper, roll it up, and put it in a plastic pill-like container for your love to find. Just hope your object of affection doesn’t swallow it by mistake.
Put away all your dark nail polish until next fall, because just like last year, J. Crew has anointed two colors of Essie nail polish as the shades of spring and summer. Punchy Pink and Russian Roulette look so bright and fun they’ll wipe away any lingering memories of the long, cold winter you barely made it through. Because nothing goes with warm-weather clothes like happy colors on your fingers and toes!
If you’re going to hop on the romper bandwagon, then why not go all-out and invest in a classy all-around piece? A good choice would be this black Rag & Bone romper (LBR, anyone?) designed in collaboration with model Jessica Stam. While we love how this design could totally function as evening wear, we’re more into the fact that it’s body-flattering—a drawstring waist allows you to cinch and poof in all the right places.
