Reindeer Poop Necklaces, For The Person Who Has Everything

Americans will go crazy beginning Friday as we hunt for unique gifts for our friends and family, but the Miller Park Zoo in Bloomington, IL, has made our present search simple. The zoo’s gift shop is selling “magical reindeer gem” necklaces made from dehydrated, sterilized, and spray-painted reindeer dung. The snowman-shaped pendants sell for $20…

Cheapskate: Sears (Yes, Sears)

I can’t tell you the last time I walked into a Sears … Oh, wait, I lie … A few months ago I walked through the department store to get to the rest of a mall, but all I saw were appliances and Craftsman tools. So I was really shocked to learn that the retailer…

More Products For Obscenely Lazy People!

We may be in the middle of a recession, but companies keep churning out products for people who are too lazy to wipe their own butts. Take, for example, the Shoedini. I have no idea if this is a new product or an old standby, but it’s the first I’ve seen of it. If…

Get Your Mitts Off My Boobs, Santa!

This is Urban Outfitters’ Grey Antics Mrs. Klaus Sweater from their special holiday sweaters collection, but I can’t figure out why anyone would want a cardigan that evokes an image of Santa Claus getting grabby with Mrs. Claus … or you. That’s gross! [Urban Outfitters]…

How To Wear The Oxford Shoe Trend

Oxford shoes are all the rage this season, and your feet should be thankful. You no longer have to manage walking and keeping your foot inside the narrow toe box of a pump, or you can simply forgo wearing heels altogether. But how exactly do you wear these boyish shoes … well … without looking like a…

Decorate Your Fingers With Polaroids

Obsessed with Polaroids? Well, in case you’re not sated by the original art form, then open your mind to the iconic white border in jewelry form as the Polaroid meets your ring finger. Fill in the slot with a teeny tiny picture of anything you wish, and all of the sudden, your ring is a…

Santa Can’t Afford To Give You This

For my teeny tiny Christmas tree in my Manhattan apartment, I purchased one of those flimsy contraptions, certainly built to only last one season. But this Swarovski-encrusted tree stand is putting me to shame. It’s shiny, fancy, and really, really expensive at $14,770. Could this be the very best present under a tree? [Born Rich]…

Win This! Hissyfit Body Double Anti-Aging Body Moisturizer + SPF

We spend tons of time (and money) washing, toning, and moisturizing our faces to keep them smooth and free of blemishes and fine lines, but most of us just slap on any ole body moisturizer. When we’re old and gray, our faces will be oh-so-smooth, and our limbs will be covered in wrinkles. But not…

Polaroid Of The Month Club—You Want In?

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…

Michel Stipe Wants You to Wear A Cassette

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,…

Cheapskate: American Eagle Outfitters

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…

Give Your Dog A Hipster ‘Stache & Make Him Happy At The Same Time

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…

Gift Idea For The Literary Fashionista

Well, or so we thought. Olympia Le Tan’s canvas, brass, felt and silk thread clutches feature first-edition covers of 21 different classics are certainly “different” and chic in the nerdiest way possible. (In fact, Tilda Swinton reportedly scooped one up.) Then we found out they cost $1500.00 each, and our collective jaws dropped. So, um…

You’ll Be One Stylish Present Wearing Kate Spade’s Bow Accessories

While some clothing companies sew sequins on a sweater and call it holiday attire, Kate Spade takes a more original approach, turning the classic bows that get stuck on top of presents into hair accessories, ballet flats, necklaces, and, our personal favorite, rings. These aren’t accessories you’d wear year-round, but it sure would be fu…

Fashion Test Drive: Assets Fantastic Firmer Mid-Thigh Short

The other day I had on a sexy sweater-dress from Madewell. Well, it would have been really sexy if static hadn’t made it cling to my lace tights. By the time lunch rolled around, I was in dire need of a slip. But, you see, a slip isn’t something that’s easily found in this day…

Attention, All Stress Balls!

When it comes to stress relief, I generally turn to hanging out with friends, watching funny television, and just plain trying to forget about the cause of my tension. Massages work wonders, too. But after seeing these new “chic” stress balls, I might have to reconsider my methods. Bloom Putty took the basic idea of…
