Madura One-Piece Swimsuit

Oh, Tory Burch. We're in love with your stunning blue and white Madura One-Piece Swimsuit ($250), but at that price, we'd have to dip into our vaycay fund just to buy it. That means we'd have a gorgeous new suit to wear, but no place to wear it. Le sigh.... [More]

M•A•C Strobe Cream

There are plenty of reasons why we're excited to try M•A•C's Strobe Cream ($32): it's billed as "the ultimate quick fix" for skin, it enhances the effects of light on your face, and it contains green tea to reduce dullness. Let's be honest, though. They had us at "quick fix."... [More]

FingerTongs

Twenty-something years on this planet, and we're still not any good at using tongs. At the rate food falls from the plastic utensil, we're almost tempted to reach into a hot pan to grab it with our own bare hands. Being slightly smarter than that, however, we've ultimately opted to... [More]

hammered-gold-chevron-necklace-smll.jpg

Hammered Gold Chevron Necklace

The zigzag chevron design has been hammered (pun intended) into our brains as synonymous with everybody's favorite hapless blockhead, Charlie Brown.

cougar-print-cardigan-smll.jpg

Charlotte Tarantola Cougar Print Cardigan

First off, the animal shown here is not a cougar, even though that's the item name. Cougars don't have spots. We're going to go ahead and call this a cheetah print, as we can see the telltale black lines on these kitties' faces. The point, however, is that this is... [More]

Gold Rush Timeline Fragrance

A lot of fragrances have names that do not reflect the actual scent. (We got a whiff of the real Christina Aguilera once, and let's just say that her BO is not as pleasant as her perfume.) At the Time Travel Mart, however, their scents aren't just fancy names -... [More]

Fuchsia Nantucket Bowls

Assembly New York Oversize Cami Dress

You may think that this Oversize Cami Dress ($444) either has some sort of zip-off convertible skirt or a big pocket on its right side, but you'd be wrong. Assembly New York is simply furthering the art of the exposed, decorative zipper - and so instead of something functional, you... [More]

YOU Be The Stylist: What To Wear With A Flamingo Print Bikini Top

Okay, so we have this adorable bikini top covered in sweet little flamingos, but we're not a fan of the coordinating bottom. It's just a bit much if we wear the same printed bottom and there's no reason to settle since there are so many fabulous separates to mix and... [More]

Tattoo Duvet Cover Set

We upgraded from a twin bed ages ago, but that isn't stopping us from coveting H&M's Tattoo Duvet Cover Set ($25), which tragically only comes in a twin/full. If you're still stretching out on your childhood mattress, we think this is a steal! Order one stat while we wait and... [More]

Sunbeam Donut Maker

You can't deny the usefulness of a good catch-all, but the boyfriend has started to look askance at all of the gilded trays and mercury glass bowls scattered around the house.

Nancybird Sampler Silk Square Scarf

The trompe l'oeil effect on this Nancybird Sampler Silk Square Scarf ($80) may not involve ornate high vaulted ceilings, but we find wonder in its delicate illustrated lines that masquerade as your grandma's stitched sampler.

HKNB Boyfriend Tank

If this Boyfriend Tank ($40) wasn't part of Heidi Klum's New Balance line, it would have taken us several moments to figure out what the hell "OUFVDRZEN" meant. We're still a little confused why they couldn't just put "auf Wiedersehen" on the front of this tank, but we guess it... [More]

Zoe Karssen Paradise Printed Sweatshirt

Paradise is a world where all sweatshirts that are as cute as this Zoe Karssen Paradise Printed Sweatshirt don't cost $135.

NOW + 4EVA

We've long been fans of the Australian indie pop band Architecture in Helsinki because of its irreverent approach to music. The band's latest album, NOW + 4EVA ($17) is far from Mozart in quality, but the blend of electronic instruments and joyful voices is sure to put a smile on... [More]

Punch-robe-sm.jpg

Mughal Punch Robe

With a bright pattern, a short hem, and super soft cotton voile, the Mughal Punch Robe ($90) from Rikshaw Designs is practically begging to be worn all summer long. We mean, you may want to change into something less...robe-ish...if you decide to leave the house or yard, but when you're... [More]

audra-band-sm.jpg

Audra Crystal Headband

A little sparkle never hurt anything, right? Besides, the Audra Crystal Headband ($112) from Eugenia Kim isn't so blinding shiny that you'd have to save it for special occasions.

Bear Bookcase

Sold as part of Restoration Hardware's Baby & Child line, this Bear Bookcase ($1099) carries a little more whimsy than its utilitarian contemporaries (while still keeping RH's signature premium pricing!).

basics-ring-peach-smll.jpg

Basics Ring

This ring doesn't look so "basic" to us - but maybe that's because we're not surrounded by opulent elegance every day. We suppose if we were some ruler of the ancient Byzantine Empire, this kind of gold-plated cocktail ring ($40) might be the sort of thing we'd put on to... [More]

Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask

Blending rose stem cells with rose extracts, this gel mask ($45) combats wrinkles, dullness, and saggy skin to keep you looking young and radiant. If roses can really do all that, it's probably wise to ditch the bouquets and buy your roses in face mask form from now on.... [More]

We don't watch many historical films, but we absolutely had to check out Christina Ricci's portrayal of the infamous ax murderer. Will you learn anything from Lizzie Borden Took an Ax ($10)?

Amanda Uprichard Wayfair Sheath

We're all about stripes forever and ever, amen, but we also all know that a full-coverage horizontal stripe tends to make one look wider than one actually is. One doesn't want that.

In our wide and varied travels across the information superhighway, in addition to the fierce and fabulous, we encounter the insane, the arcane, and the absolutely friggin' ridiculous.
