Never Lose Another Pen

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…

The Saddest Sad Etsy Boyfriend

Our friends over at Urlesque compiled a list of some of the saddest guys on Etsy. You know, the guys who were forced to don really stupid hats or clothing items for their wives’ or girlfriends’ Etsy stores. The worst offender?

Etsy’s “Congratulations, You Got Bad Touched” Rape Greeting Card

This greeting card belongs on Regretsy, not Etsy: it says “Congratulations, you got bad touched!” and is advertised by the Etsy seller “youstupidbitch” as “Get creeped on, get raped?

Butterfly Accessories: Not Just For Tweens

The butterfly has really gotten a bad rap when it comes to the fashion choices it inspires. Most often it’s relegated to tramp stamps and plastic tween jewelry, but why? It’s a beautiful creature with magnificent colors and I think we should embrace the more mature side of butterfly style. After the jump, a selectio…

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?

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 gorgeou…

Even though the leaves are falling and temperatures are cooling down, it’s never the wrong season for sunglasses.

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…
