The Nour Hammour Studhead Leather Hoodie ($1,995) is bad to the bone. The hood is removable, but we have no idea why. We'll need it to protect our hair when we're cruisin' around town on our motorcycles, smoking cigarettes, and listening to loud music.... [More]

Squirrel Tissue Dispenser

We always envied Snow White's mind control over special connection with the woodland creatures - the way they'd sing with her, and help her find her way.

We're totally comfortable with hugging trees when they've got all their leaves on them, but we're not so sure about the ones on this Cooper & Ella print blouse ($125). It's too easy to imagine those branches as long spindly arms, and we'd rather the trees not hug us back.... [More]
