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 only does it have the French word for “dream” scrolled across it, but it’s also striped and has sequins. What a très chic dream!
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 yourself dancing in the streets (which, OK, might not draw the best kind of attention, but do you really care?).
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 style it, it’s always an attention-grabber.
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. Show your style and recognize your friend’s fabulousness by sending her a note written on Effie’s Paper, a line of stationery designed by lifestyle blogger and author Kalyn Johnson Chandler. Although there are several designs, we’re partial to the “Daarhling, The Heels Can Never Be High Enough!” note cards because what could be more fab than your name in pretty script and a pair of sky-high leopard-print heels?
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. The Absolis line from French beauty company Patyka does just that. The bottle of the Absolis Neroli Brightening Body Milk is art deco and gorgeous, and the scents — everything from Neroli orange to white grape to mint — are practically edible.
Don’t let your iPod steal the show. Instead, let your headphones take center stage with these ridiculously adorable ear buds from Fred Flare. Take your pick from tiny ladybugs, strawberries, or cupcakes, bling them out with some flashy jewels, or, go quirky with sushi roll charms and rubber duckies. Switch ‘em up as your mood changes—just like jewelry!
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. Even better, these postal-themed mugs didn’t travel far: They’re handmade in the U.S.
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 prefer goji berries? How about sea salt or ginger? Crushed candy cane, candy corn, or gummy bears? Chocri offers over 10 billion possible combinations, and you can even customize your chocolate bar with a message like “I love you” or “happy birthday.” If that set-up doesn’t just melt your heart, then nothing will.
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 urban wardrobe staples similar to J.Crew. Lands’ End Canvas is affordable enough so that you don’t need a trust fund to get more than one piece. Check out some of our favorites after the jump. Keep reading »
It’s not often a girl can pull off purple and yellow in one outfit. Or green and orange. Or red and turquoise. Or … you get the idea. But you won’t have to worry about clashing if all the colors of the rainbow are on one adorable color wheel. This 22k gold pendant hangs from an 18k gold chain and adds an instant “art school” look to any bland outfit. Time to brush up on your color theory!
