To say that I’m “clutch-obsessed” is an understatement. I’m a full-blown, self-professed addict of these neat little purses. Having practiced all summer, I am now a pro at fitting my daily essentials into a clutch (hint, hint: It all begins with a mini hold-all wallet). So this fall I’m not putting away my clutches for sturdier and larger bags. Instead, I’m looking for clutches done in heavy fabrics and autumn colors. My first find was a delectable goodie by Rue 114. The Africa Rising Collection celebrates the “endless riches of Africa” and features animal and other organic prints in beige and brown. I’m partial to the Bamako clutch for the simple geometric lines of the mud cloth. But I also recommend checking out the other collections in the Rue 114 Etsy shop because you can’t beat one-of-a-kind style for $35 to $45!
This amazing decal of David Bowie as the Goblin King instantly transforms a lowly Macbook into a magical scene from the “The Labyrinth,” aka The Best Movie Ever. Ideally it would come with a separate decal depicting that legendary codpiece, but hey, this is a great start. [$23, Stickerman] Keep reading »

Sure, Etsy is a great place to purchase Justin Bieber Unicorn Fan Art and ritual tunics with Celtic trim, but did you know you could also acquire a mighty fine set of boobies on the crafting site?

We eat plants and live with them in our homes, so why shouldn’t we wear them as well? This jewelry designer thought plants were perfectly fashionable, and created wearable planters — tiny, miniature planters worn on necklaces and brooches that can be filled with the sprout, a succulent, or a flower of your choice. The planters are made from 3D printers and can be painted any color you choose, too! What a way to create a movable garden of earthly delights. [$30, Etsy] Keep reading »
Confession: I totally had feather extensions put in my hair a few days ago. And then I had them taken out. Turns out my hair is so thick that the feathers get buried and become nearly invisible. I would need to glue an entire bird to my head in order to make any kind of a fashion statement. Since I’d rather not go that route, I’m thinking about alternatives, and I’m liking the look of this single-side feather earring. It’s very bohemian cool, and unlike those extensions, it doesn’t require pliers to remove it. Always a plus.
Is this T-shirt simple? Yes. Straight to the point? Definitely. Delightfully specific? Of course. Curiously poetic? You betcha. Last question: Would you wear it? Us: resounding yes!
Despite her alleged credit problems, Courtney Love has discovered a new way to rip retailers off: Etsy. Her favorite purchases on the online marketplace include a $450 vintage Hungarian wedding dress, assorted crystals, and a $58,000 George Harvey original painting. But surprise! She doesn’t pay vendors on time. Courtney recently posted a rather articulate (and misspelled) note on the site detailing the reasons behind her delinquent payments… Keep reading »
I live in constant fear that one day I will open a kitchen drawer or a hall closet and every pencil, pen, and bobby pin I’ve ever lost will come tumbling out and I will die, because you guys, I lose a staggering number of writing utensils and bobby pins every day. For example, yesterday I very mindfully placed three new pens and five bobby pins in my purse. Today there are none. While I can’t say for sure that keeping a zippered pencil pouch in my purse would help remedy this problem, at the very least it would be cute.
Take a break from taking a break from all your important projects with this comfy pillow. Those deadlines can wait. There are naps to be taken! [$32, Yellow Bug Boutique] Keep reading »
