True or false: This bike lock looks like handcuffs

True or false: This bike lock looks like handcuffs

Maybe I’m riddled with jet lag, but answer me this — does not this Master Lock Street Cuff Bike Lock I was just pitched look oddly like handcuffs?? Maybe it’s genius — someone is less likely to steal if they are reminded of the results of criminal behavior AS they are stealing. However, I have a naughty naughty mind…and right now I’m thinking of handcuffs in a whole other usage. I need a nap. And to read a lot less erotica.

Check Out the New Game of Thrones Jewelry Collection

Check Out the New Game of Thrones Jewelry Collection

So, I never got to ride the Game of Thrones pedicab at SXSW. (Life is hard.) However, this news is making me feel a bit better: HBO has partnered with Phyrrha for a line of Game of Thrones jewelry! And I’m all about channeling my inner Natalie Dormer. The Hollywood Reporter says the new collection will include sterling silver and bronze talisman necklaces and rings. A talisman! I always wanted a talisman. The items will range in price from $98 to $900. The talismans feature the sigils of the Houses of Westeros. Phyrrha says the collection will arrive online and in stores on April 4, just in time for the HBO premiere of the fourth season on April...

The search for a new umbrella

The search for a new umbrella

I feel like this is a topic that comes up a lot… (At least in my sordid world.) It’s been snowing pretty much nonstop in these parts for weeks. Early on, snow storms gave me an excuse to embrace my introvert (nothing says glad to work from home like slipping on your arse every time you attempt to commute), but as time and snow storms go on, you can no longer cancel plans for several days just because of the weather. Life goes on. And so, the other night, one of my dearest friends celebrated a pretty pivotal birthday, and I braved the trip even as an ice storm came down around me. I’m super glad I went — I had a great time! — but as I was trudging the long walk to the subway, my umbrella broke. And by the end of my journey to said...

Major VS Panties Deal for Valentine’s Day

Do I need a winter veil beanie?

Do I need a winter veil beanie?

I just came across this  BCBGMAXAZRIA Winter Veil Beanie ($68)…and I find myself oddly captivated. I’ve always had a thing for a bit of pompom…but in this crazy combo of knit hat and birdcage veil? I don’t know. It sort of feels virtually Victorian in its elegance, right? And if I’m going to risk hat hair, the hat should at least be cute…

Putting a little wine in my step

Putting a little wine in my step

After spending the weekend in Virginia wine country, I’m feeling positively…merlot. While we won’t talk about how my current wine belly does not suggest opportune the shopping situation, I do need a cute new dress (or 2 or 3) for upcoming holiday fun, and I’m totally into this sophisticated yet adorable Merlot Embellished Neck Dress ($49). The price is right, and it brings out my inner nice gal with an inkling for too much vino. Plus, it’s telling me, and everyone else, to drink more wine. And that’s what the holiday season is all...

Giveaway: Express Glam Fragrance + $100 Express Gift Card

Giveaway: Express Glam Fragrance + $100 Express Gift Card

When I was in college, Express was one of those places the “cool kids” shopped. Back then, I didn’t really fit into a lot of their clothes, and it was somewhat aspirational for me. As soon as I was able to, I was all about their jeans. It’s new to see Express selling fragrances though, and I’m all about the new Glam. Made with top notes of black currant, mandarin vodka and mid notes of sheer jasmine, while the base notes are sandalwood flower, praline and white woods, it legit FEELS glam — and it’s so slender I can easily fit it in my purse when I’m out and about! For those of you who aren’t into heavy scents, this one is light and airy and starts at just $15.99 for the roller ball size – a great price...

Can We Talk About Ugg’s Swarovski Crystal Customization?

I know that I’m going to get a touch of backlash for this…but I’m all about the bling everywhere and anywhere. (You should see my lingerie collection.) So, while intellectually I know these boots are a bit ridiculous, I’d ABSOLUTELY be into them and probably will end up owning them. Ugg Australia‘s Swarovski crystal customization will be available in select concept stores, with a choice of 79 designs including hearts, stars, butterflies, skulls, bows and more. (We KNOW WHERE I’M GOING WITH...

Just in time for fall, design your own Uggs!

Just in time for fall, design your own Uggs!

I’ve been telling my friends all week that I’m happier about the whole status of my life since boot season has started. We’ll ignore that tights let me compress a fair amount of excess flesh, but in general, tights/boots season just make me feel so much more attractive! (Related reading: Check out my new article for The Fashion Spot  -- How to Shop Boots for Wide Calves — and some of my favorite styles!) But as it continues to get chillier, I may not be AS into the weather patterns — I’ll still want my boots though. I think it’s pretty adorable (and holiday season timely!) that Ugg Australia now lets us customize our Ugg boots and flip flops.  Ugg by You, is available for the UGG Class Short sheepskin boot and the Fluff...
