Yes, it’s another “whatever of the month club” subscription—but, hold up, this one is worth it, mostly because they aren’t sending you cuts of beef or different cigars each month. Polaroid of the Month Club was started by Melanie from the darling You Are My Fave blog. She takes pretty pictures of pretty things with her Polaroid camera, and sometimes takes pretty pictures of things you tell her that you like. Then she sends said pretty pictures to you every first of the month. It’s like a tiny, monthly dose of fuzzy, photographic beauty. (Sure glad the hipsters saved Polaroid now!) It’s three months for $14 and six for $27—you email Melanie to sign up and tell her what you like, too! Seriously, everyone in my life may get this for the holidays this year.

Though Martin Margiela is a huge recluse, the brand is getting a very recognizable face, in the form of Michael Stipe from R.E.M. He’s designed a silver microcassette as a form of jewelry. But the really fun part with this is that he’s leaving it all up to the wearer. Fashion it like a necklace, use it on a headband, attach it to your shoelaces — it’s all up to your creativity. “The microcassette can not be defined as either a piece of jewelery or an art object,” a Margiela spokesperson said. “It’s both and neither at the same time. It can be worn or displayed in any way the wearer and owner desires.”

One of the good things about shopping at a store that’s meant for teens and early-20-somethings is that they have fashionable stuff that’s much cheaper than designer clothing. American Eagle Outfitters has the aesthetic of Ralph Lauren (well, sort of), but the prices of the Gap. Check out some of our faves from AE after the jump. I’m already planning a mini shopping spree this afternoon. Keep reading »

The mustache obsession continues! Yesterday I needed something to make me smile (I wasn’t feeling so fab) and then I came across this totally awesome dog toy and I did more than that — I squealed. I am so going to put this mustache chew toy in my dog Lucca’s stocking (yes, she gets a stocking, what’s wrong with that?) and the next time we need to go somewhere in disguise, she’ll be all set.

Want to put a little piece of Paris in your pocket? Check out French makeup company Bourjois’ limited edition collection of eyeshadows and blushes, called “Rendez-vous à Paris.” Each compact features a vintage-inspired illustration of a Paris monument or landmark. A shimmery silver hue shows a picture of the grand opera house; a sultry black accent shadow comes with a faux old-fashioned photograph overlooking the Seine; the packaging for the Rose d’Or blush depicts the Eiffel Tower.
They’re only around for a little bit, so grab one up quickly. They’re the perfect stocking stuffers (or just a très chic present for yourself). [About $10 each, Asos.com] Keep reading »
