Finally! Upholstery wizards have extracted the magical essence of mood rings and put it into a cushion! This plush Mood Cushion ($29) is white when it's off, but turn it on and it will shift between pink, purple, yellow, and green! And just like with mood rings, the color has... [More]


Wee Ones Knot Teeny Genie Detangling Brush

We really wish the Wee Ones Knot Teeny Genie Detangling Brush ($15, in pink or teal) had existed back in the 1980s. Then we wouldn't have had the world's least flattering hairdos, or been mistaken for little boys more times than we could count, and maybe we could have had... [More]

[More]


It's Hip Maxi Skirt

The designers named this the It's Hip Maxi Skirt ($34) for a reason (and we're inclined to agree). It's not like they called it the It's Pretty Average Maxi Skirt...... [More]

Tufted Tiger Rug

Trust us, the Tufted Tiger Rug ($44) is a much better alternative to the real thing. For starters, it's a lot more humane...and what people with real tiger rugs don't tell you is how often you get a foot stuck in its mouth! (Fun possibly-not-a-fact: a tiger in a dream... [More]

Topshop Moto Embellished Denim Hot Pants

Doubtblush: Topshop Moto Embellished Denim Hot Pants

You may have noticed that we're hardly perpetual rays of sunshine around here, but even so, we seem to spend a lot of our time enthusing about one gewgaw or another. Doubtblush exists to make it clear that we do not, in fact, like everything. Frumpy mom denim shorts meet... [More]


Jantzen Bohemian Blooms Bandeau

Common wisdom says that ruffles belong in front or behind, covering our more vulnerable bulges. But we can't help but think that the frills lining the sides of this Jantzen Bohemian Blooms Bandeau ($106) are pretty darned adorable. We figure people will be far too busy admiring our cuteness when... [More]


The Truth About Style

While we've been hooked on TLC's What Not to Wear for years, it wasn't until recently that we picked up Stacy London's The Truth About Style ($20). We are so glad we did! The tell-all memoir and style-shoot is just as heart-warming as WNTW. Alternating between her own personal struggles... [More]

Brrrrr Polar Bear Ice Tray

This Brrrrr Polar Bear Ice Tray ($20) isn't just another cutesy mold for your freezer. In fact, the ice cubes it forms look like boring old blocks, not clever animals or sinking ships. What it does do is make it easy as pie to squeeze and shake the darned things... [More]


Wrong Is Right Tote Bag

You have to admit, this bag is right about wrong being right... unless of course they're wrong, in which case they're totally right! Confusion is the name of the game with the Wrong Is Right Tote Bag ($9)! Just look at that optical illusion print: it's not clearing anything up!... [More]


Metallic Crochet Sleeveless Top

Digging the antique vibe of this Metallic Crochet Sleeveless Top ($33)? We think it'd look fab tossed over a simple black cami and paired with a pair of skinnies. And if you get tired of it down the road, you could probably make it into a curtain or a set... [More]


Croissant Hair Clips

It's not as though we need to put faux baked goods in our 'dos. In fact, these Croissant Hair Clips ($18) might be entirely silly. But they're also hypnotically fun, which is probably why they've ended up in our shopping basket.... [More]

Royal Doulton 1815 Collection Bowls

These Royal Doulton 1815 Collection Bowls ($40 for eight) might be named for the legendary brand's founding year, but we think these pieces, with their dip-dyed, artisan appeal, have a totally modern look.

Lamp-Post Lavender Sachet

We're really, really hoping that if we put a Lamp-Post Lavender Sachet ($15) by Gardenmis into the back of our closet among the old fur coats (okay, skinny jeans that we're trying to fit back into), it'll magically transport us to Narnia. But, you know, post-witch Narnia. We can't handle... [More]


Bossanova Shorts

If Colonel Mustard was going to do Professor Plum in over brandy in the Billiard Room, he could do worse than to grab hold of this Dania Candlestick ($105). With its heavy, tapered construction in solid, sturdy teak and steel, it's far more likely to get the job done than... [More]


Like a Pixie Headband

The makers invite you to "[d]ance around the fairy ring to the rhythm of your wild heart beat" when wearing this Like a Pixie Headband ($90). It's a federal offense to possess the sort of stuff that'd actually get us unleashing our inner pixies like that, but this fey accessory... [More]

We thought this Maya Wool Woven Watch ($168) was just another trinket until we scrolled down. How many watches have you seen sporting tassels? We think their inclusion in this piece totally takes it to another level.... [More]


DFC Baby Unicorn Figurines

If money were no object, you better believe that we'd be outfitting our mantels with a few of these DFC Baby Unicorn Figurines ($218). We say mantels with an -s because as long as we're daydreaming about our future homes, we may as well assume they'll have fireplaces in every... [More]

Eloquii Split Sleeve Easy Dress
