Assault With A Deadly Earring

It was love at first sight when we peeped the nOir "Daggers" knife stud earrings because they're everything we want in a piece of jewelry -- shiny, glitzy, and violent. OK, so maybe that last one isn't what we're really about, but we do like to think of ourselves as women who are more exciting…

A Winter Hat To Tap Into Your Animal Instincts

Guess what: winter sucks. If you live in the Eastern hemisphere like we do, you know that starting December 1st or so, it can be nearly impossible to go outside and feel even moderately warm. You need armor. And preferably something heavy-duty that doesn't look crazy (read: no homemade mustache knit caps or scary bank…

Bathe With This Pumpkin Spice, But Don’t Eat It!

We thought you'd have to pry our Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Scrub from our cold, dead hands. But watch your back, Bliss, because you've got competition! The Body Deli's Pumpkin Spice Scrub smells can-I-eat-this? yummy and the sea salts and shea butter exfoliated our dull winter skin, leaving buttery softness in its wake. We…

The Perfect Fashion-Meets-Business Laptop Carrier

The problem with pretty laptop sleeves is that you hardly ever get to see them when they're stuffed in your purse. (Unless you take to carrying around your laptop as a huge clutch, which doesn't seem very comfortable, safe, or practical.) Enter Rebecca Minkoff and her wonderful laptop carrier that's half purse, half case. Both…

Naturally Synthetic Mirrored Fox Brooch

Find your inner spirit animal in this super cool mirrored fox brooch by British label Bena.

Get Ready To Snuggle

As the weather cools, all we can think about is bundling up in super cute layers and big cozy sweaters. These slipper socks are fun enough for daytime paired with leggings and boots or under Wellies when it's gross out, and snugly enough to wear in the evening curled up on the couch with some…

The Daydreamer’s Tee

Daydreaming isn't often encouraged in our fast-paced world. But when you think about it, where would we be as a society without daydreaming? We'd have a lot less inventions, fiction, art, and introspection, that's where. The Drapey Rêve Tee from J.Crew reminds us to dream a little dream while we're awake, braving the world. Not…

Gold Glitter Shoes. Need We Say More?

There are several ways to draw attention to yourself. Most of these methods, however, are annoying and kind of high school, if you ask us. A fun way to turn heads? Try these gold glitter oxford lace-up shoes by Deena & Ozzy. They're guaranteed to make people smile, and are so jazzy you might find…

Mixed Pattern Paradox

The Mixed Bouquet Infinity Scarf's combination of different patterns creates a lovely paradox: It clashes with everything and therefore goes with everything. Throw it on to add interest to an all-black outfit, or take the eclectic look to the max by pairing it with a plaid trench coat and textured hosiery. However you choose to…

Because A Glamorous Hand-Written Note Will Be Treasured

It's easy to send an email or a tweet, but it's difficult for the recipient to hold on to that message. A friend or colleague can, however, tack a hand-written note onto their bulletin board.

Pretty Package, Super Delicious Smell

When it comes to beauty products, they can promise everything under the sun. But let's get real: All that really matters is that the packaging looks enticing and the product smells pretty good.

Don't let your iPod steal the show. Instead, let your headphones take center stage with these ridiculously adorable ear buds from Fred Flare.

A “Wish You Were Here!” Mug

What's better than a postcard? A postcard that can hold coffee! This pretty mug comes complete with an old-fashioned postmark, a place to write a personalized greeting, and a special pen with ink that becomes permanent after a quick trip to the oven.

Chocolate Bars Can Be DIY, Too

The way to a woman's heart is with chocolate, but the way to anyone's heart is with a custom-made chocolate bar. Choose your bar flavor, such as white chocolate or dark. Then pick up to five toppings to be blended in and mark your bar as truly yours. Are cranberries your fancy, or would you…

Cheapskate: Lands’ End Canvas Does The Preppy Look For Less

You know we're big fans of J.Crew, over here. But we're not fans of the Crew's oftentimes ridiculous prices. We still haven't figured out why most of the shoes are upwards of $200! But instead of complaining (some more), we decided to check out Lands' End Canvas, which has preppy yet slightly urba…
