We eat plants and live with them in our homes, so why shouldn’t we wear them as well? This jewelry designer thought plants were perfectly fashionable, and created wearable planters — tiny, miniature planters worn on necklaces and brooches that can be filled with the sprout, a succulent, or a flower of your choice. The planters are made from 3D printers and can be painted any color you choose, too! What a way to create a movable garden of earthly delights. [$30, Etsy] Keep reading »
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2″ hits theaters in less than two weeks. Sob! Must the saga come to an end?! This awesome lightning bolt necklace is the perfect accessory for a midnight screening, and unlike, say, a floor-length Gryffindor robe, it’s subtle enough to wear to work the day after. Plus, it’ll be a daily reminder of your devotion to Potter and crew until your prayers are answered and J.K. Rowling realizes her mistake in ending the series at book seven.
A nearly invisible thread connects the two leaf pendants on this necklace, which makes it look like they’re floating on your collarbone. The result is a gorgeous and unique piece of jewelry, although it might cause strangers to stare at your chest (not super enjoyable). And possibly start rumors that you’re a witch (always enjoyable).

“What’s your sign?” is one of the lamest pickup lines ever — but we still love learning about our horoscopes. The fun Starlet Jewelry by Hot in Hollywood Horoscope Pendant has a pave-encrusted astrology symbol on the front and key traits of that sign engraved on back. Cute style is in the cosmos.
Think of all the cool things you could put in this gorgeous locket: a photo of your lover, a photo of your dog, a cute little poem, a tiny cheat sheet for your French quiz … the possibilities are endless! [$8, Urban Rose] Keep reading »
This super cute necklace has just the right amount of cheekiness to make it right up there on the wants list. We love the laser-cut black acrylic; the sans serif font and drippy bits are simple and bold at the same time. And at 30 percent off, this accessory is at a price that makes us say oui!
Gardening is cyclical, so when fashion mirrors nature, shouldn’t it too follow in a cycle? That’s the theme behind this awesome Etsy find—a rosette necklace made from recycled T-shirts by CreativityIsMessy. Best of all, it’s made to order, so choose your rose color (lavender, pink, and charcoal are some nice options) and then select a hue for the ribbon. Here’s the kind of piece we’d totally be into DIY-ing ourselves if we had the time … but since the price is pretty affordable at $28, we’d probably let someone else do the job (a way better one at that).
Isn’t the goal normally to keep food off your person? We’re not harshing on all food-related fashion, but it’s just that this potato chip necklace looks almost too real, and potentially freaky. Like: “Oh hey … did you realize you have a whole potato chip inexplicably stuck to your chest?” [The Curiosity Shoppe] Keep reading »
Here’s the type of thing that we’d put on one of our “things we’d like to bring back” lists … if we were doing “Things We’d Like To Bring Back, The 19th Century Version.” Of course, right off the bat, anyone who wears a monocle glass around their neck is going to be labeled as some sort of fauxhemian going for the antiquated and obsolete because you’re just cool like that. (You still use your VHS and Walkman to look cool so why wouldn’t you use outdated eyewear technology?)
So what say ye, good fellows and ladies, to the monocle look? [The Curiosity Shoppe] Keep reading »
This necklace in the form of a dress is the perfect accessory for fashion design students, or seamstresses, or sewing hobbyists, or people who like to wear dresses, or people who like to construct dress forms. What I’m trying to say is that pretty much everyone in the world has a reason to wear this necklace. [$13.50, Niche] Keep reading »
