Because sometimes you just need a little something extra — a little more power, more edge. So call upon these intense, rather intimidating Predator Rings, from jewelry designer Danielle Nicole Hill. They’re only (ha!) $200 each, or $900 for the whole set. A small price to pay for the ability to claw someone’s eyes out, wouldn’t you say? [Etsy]
An understated timepiece in silver or gold is a classic accessory, sure, but it’s also a bit predictable. Why wear a regular watch–on a regular watchband–when you could throw on a gorgeous bracelet that just happens to tell time too? We’ve rounded up some of the most creative handmade watches Etsy sellers have to offer. Read on if you’d like to add a bit of pizazz to your punctuality…
A single animal tooth, sure. A tiny cast bronze animal skull replica even, that’s fine. But I draw the line at wearing human teeth — real or otherwise. And frankly, while I know I’m into some weird stuff style-wise, I have no idea why someone would want to wear another person’s dientes. Nevetheless, if you must, you can find it on — where else? — Etsy. [$180, Etsy] Keep reading »
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 »
If you want to spice up your home decor situation, try hanging this sweet little embroidery hoop on your living room wall. “Fight Club” fans will immediately recognize the quote, people who haven’t seen the movie will be confused, and everyone will feel vaguely threatened. Mission accomplished. [$12, Valerie Photo] 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? That’s right: Etsy seller BoobsRUs fashions comfy, plush boob pillows to rest your own set of tatas on. At a mere $40 for a pair — with optional pink or brown nipples — these boobs are way cheaper than a set of implants and require NO recuperation time! [$40. Etsy] Keep reading »
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!
