Do Not Want: BeardHead Hats

Oh no. Please tell us this is a joke. The New York Daily News reports that a California company called BeardHats is actually … successful? People are wearing these? In public? And here we had thought the beard accessory trend was on the decline. Damn you, cold weather! You bring out the fools and crazies! Check out some more fun after the jump—a look back at some of the weirder beard-related buys we’ve seen. [New York Daily News] Keep reading »

Moccasins Meant For Showing Off

When the colder seasons come around, we go into heavy hibernation mode, building blanket forts and watching movies and only leaving the house for work, medical emergencies and, if we’re feeling really motivated, food. We’re not ashamed to admit that we’ve worn our ratty slippers out in public on more than one occasion. These gorgeous handmade Darlingtonia Moccasins are a perfect alternative: cozy enough for hibernation mode but too gorgeous to keep cooped up inside. Hopefully, the guy at the teriyaki restaurant down the street appreciates them as much as we do. (Available in various colors, sizes 5-11.)

Shades Made Simple: A Few Rules For Wearing Sunglasses

Even though the leaves are falling and temperatures are cooling down, it’s never the wrong season for sunglasses. I say this as an admitted eyewear addict: the other day a friend of mine shifted slightly in the backseat of my car and was buried in a mini avalanche of sunglasses I’d been hoarding behind her headrest.

“Do you really need to keep mirrored Lolita shades with you at all times?” she asked, picking a hot pink pair out of the pile.

“You never know,” I said. “You just never know.”

Here are my top three rules for the responsible and enjoyable wearing of sunglasses … Keep reading »

New Style Email Obsession: Etsy Fashion

My name is Jessica Wakeman and I am an Etsy-aholic: the daily newsletter from the vintage/craft/food/housewares/everything website is a must-read. While I enjoy Etsy’s curated daily “Etsy Finds” emails — “Mad Men” style was a recent one, as was a nautical theme — I’m even more psyched that Etsy is branching off into even more niche email lists. “Etsy Fashion” is a daily newsletter of adorable treasures, such as all short-shorts or clutches, while “Etsy Weddings” is a weekly newsletter for all things nuptial-related, like invitations. (Come on, don’t try to pretend you don’t daydream what your invites will look like.) The only annoying thing about the daily emails, I’ve found, is some of the items are sold out by the time I get around to reading it. Click fast, fashionistas! [Etsy.com] Keep reading »

Etsy Vs. The Vintage Shop

Have you noticed any of your local vintage stores closing up shop lately? In a bit of an unexpected move, it’s apparently the little guys who are pushing out the bigger ones, largely due to independent Etsy sellers and eBay listings. Why? Shoppers have certainly become more fond of vintage shopping in the past few years, but can find far better prices online (“The prices on Etsy kill me,” says one shop owner) as well as more detailed product information.

Which do you prefer for vintage shopping? Finding bargains online or seeing a product in person and having the store experience? [Crain's] Keep reading »

Doloris Petunia Makes Friendship Bracelets Out Of Rhinestones

After she relocated from New York City to Los Angeles, 30-year-old Courtney Prince created the Doloris Petunia line and started hawking her bejeweled wares on Etsy. From chunky statement necklaces to the rhinestone-encrusted friendship cuff you see here, these pieces are for the girl who isn’t afraid to shine a little. There’s a multicolored, crystal-embellished peacock hair clip. Or you can order a custom-made wrist cuff in pink, peach, or any other colors you desire. [Kingdom of Style] Keep reading »
