Tarte Smooth Operator

Beauty experts are raving about silicone-based foundations, and not without warrant.

illustrated people clown-s.jpg

Illustrated People Sweater

We'd say this Illustrated People Sweater ($40) is more of a sweatshirt, but tomato, tomahto... The retro girl dons of-the-moment spooky clown face paint, and has the spunk to pull it off like a pro.

*Sigh*... Embryonic ($10), the newest venture into psychedelic soundscapes by The Flaming Lips, has been deemed genius by die-hard Lips fans, and a let down by others at the wayside.

We waved our magic whimsy wand over our gardens and this Cardinal Garden Bell ($14) appeared, but we won't need a magic spell to afford it. These Japanese bells add a pop of color and playfulness to our garden. We didn't ask for a gong in our gardens - clanging... [More]


Safe Rain Trench Coat

This Safe Rain Trench Coat ($210) is a great way to stylishly stave off rain in these cooler months that are coming up. We hate fighting with staying warm and dry so this jacket helps us battle with both. The modern design is also very much a rarity when it... [More]


Crosley Princess Phone

We're big fans of Betty Draper! We'll excuse her smoking and drinking whiskey while preggo as a sign of the time, and just lust after her impeccably styled wardrobe and house instead. If you're a Mrs. Draper fan, you've got to get the Crosley Princess Phone ($30) for your boudoir.... [More]

Chronicles of Never Matte Black Sunglasses

Shades are not created equal. No matter what anyone tells you, sometimes you gotta splurge to get the creative designs that other retail stores lack. While sunglasses are usually the first things that we skimp on (we're clumsy and forgetful - all things that lead to cracked lenses or lost... [More]
