Must Haves: Pyrite Pieces With Extra Punch

must haves pyrite pieces with extra punch

You might know pyrite by its other name — Fool’s Gold. It’s true, the stuff vaguely resembles hunks of unpolished, just-mined gold, but it’s way cooler than that — mostly because it’s actually affordable. Plus, we think pyrite has an edgier, punky quality about it. We’ve found 12 pieces of pyrite-y jewelry — most under $40! — for your perusal. Check ‘em out after the jump! Keep reading »

Color Me Rad! Yes You Can Mix Peach & Navy Blue

Color Me Rad! Yes You Can Mix Peach & Navy Blue

Welcome to Color Me Rad!, our new color series where each week we challenge each other to make awesome, wearable outfits based on a couple of random colors. Think teal and pink can’t work together without make you look like a Malibu Barbie? Think again! Aren’t sure that orange and yellow can really work with brown? We got that.

Each week, we’ll dream up super awesome outfits that mix and match unlikely and unexpectedly fun color combos. For our first go, Winona chose the two above colors (that’s Pantone 296 and Pantone 148, in case you were wondering) and challenged me to come up with a cute, wearable look. Check out what I found after the jump!

Awesomely Affordable: 20 Shoppable Picks From H&M’s New E-Commerce Store

H&M has long been the mecca of affordable, adorable, celebrity-approved clothes, trendy pieces and simple classics alike, but there’s always been a catch: while you could browse a bit of the (massive) selection on their website, you could only actually purchase the items in one of their hundreds of international stores. The company has always been pretty vague on the subject of launching e-commerce … until, like, yesterday, when they announced that they’d be launching a new shoppable site as of today. Rejoice! Now you can shop thousands of amazing H&M picks from the comfort of your home. The selection is expansive, and a little overwhelming, so I’ve gone ahead and plucked 20 perfect pieces from the site. The best part? Every single item is under $50.
