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!
