Yeap, it's been one of those days. If your friends couldn't already tell by your attitude, this Good Day Bad Day Don't Ask Stemless Wine Glass ($15) will surely give them a hint.
You might be thinking, "Oh, great... Another pair of flats with animal faces on them..." But on our end, we're thinking, "Oh, great! Another pair of flats with animal faces on them!" We're showcasing the Cute Dog Suede Loafers ($100) because you can never get too much of a good thing.
We here at Outblush post a lot of cat stuff (in our defense, cats are just great), but we also understand that not everyone's a cat person. So to keep the balance, we present this Knitted Dog Print Jumper ($19). It's for people who like dogs, or, as we call them, "friendly, barking cats."
We're about ninety-nine percent sure that the Beluga Bookends ($68) more closely resemble sperm whales. (Belugas are white!) But we get it. "Sperm Whale Bookends" definitely has a...well, a ring to it. And anyway, the bookends are pretty adorable as far as tchotchkes go, never mind what they're called.
Throwing on this Skunkfunk Jara-015 Top ($109) might make you look a bit like an anime character - but since when has that been a bad thing? Embrace the vibe by combining this totally vintage-styled piece with some eye-widening makeup and a broadsword or a pair of roller skates. Maybe both. We'd watch that show.

It's hard to see gorgeous gardens and then head back to a shoebox apartment. While the utilitarian FoodMap Container ($149, on sale) isn't going to help you create a sprawling expanse of herbs and flowers, it will help you grow a few things in your tiny space. The best part is that it's on wheels, so you can reposition it for optimal time in the sunshine.
Of all the ways to rock tropical prints this season, we think shorts are the most stylish. These Juicy Couture Tropical Shorts ($118) are flattering and fun and will never remind you of your dad's Hawaiian shirts or your grandma's muumuu.
Betsey Johnson speaks our language: it only takes three words from her (well, plus a preposition) to get our attention. Those words? Extreme Cateye with Stones ($60 each). Now if we could only decide between that fabulous retro black and pink or that almost-leopard tortoise print.
Literary sorts, these Brackets Bookends ($45) by Design Atelier Article are definitely for you! Arrange your books between the mint-colored metal brackets so you always know what's on deck. They'll look smart while holding your library books or your favorite trilogies. You could also use a pair to store your books-that-are-now-movies selection, or maybe even your hunky-British-poets collection between them.
Apparently, to the designers over at goth palace House of Widow, a "rainbow" is something like the sheen on an oil slick. Hey, it works for us, especially in this elegantly dark Handkerchief Dress ($100).
Beer can chicken is admittedly tasty, but when we're aiming to give our barbecue some class, shoving a can of Miller up dinner's rear before we toss it on the grill can be a bit of a vibe-killer. Get the same even cooking and juicy flavor without the white-trash look by using this KitchenAid Vertical Roaster ($19).
So you love the scent of earthy, spicy black pepper, but you're less crazy about the sneezing fits it induces? Enjoy it without the phlegm with this Jonathan Adler candle ($38). You'll get the fab fragrance without the violent allergic reaction.
The secret (okay, it's not really a secret) to a good-looking garden is keeping it pruned. Use the simple All-Purpose Pruner ($48) to cut back branches and leaves that are threatening to choke out your flower buds. The Japanese steel blade will keep its sharpness through plenty of growing seasons, and the aqua handle adds a nice, modern touch to an old garden staple.
A silver ring showcasing a piece of gold? That's kind of like a horse pulling a car, isn't it? We're not complaining, though, because this Silver Ring with Rough Golden Stone ($124) is simply dazzling!
