Ric Rac Row

These casual slip-ons from Sanuk ($60) are decorated with essentially the same exact rickrack that we used to decorate the pockets of our jeans and overalls in elementary school, and yet we don't have a problem with that.

Megumi Ochi Ligno Sandals

Somehow designer Megumi Ochi makes minimalistic sandals look even simpler than similar cheaper counterparts.

Palm Tree Lurex Skirt

The two suns on this Palm Tree Lurex Skirt ($76) make us think it's Tatooine-inspired, but we know that's not the case, since obviously that hostile desert planet can't support plant life of any kind.

The T.V. Eye

We're intrigued by these seafoam green sunnies. We love the ocean-inspired color and chunky frame for sure, but why are they called The T.V. Eye ($58)? Do they unlock special content that only the wearers of the glasses can see? Do they reveal hidden secrets placed in the background of... [More]

While we certainly recommend using a few Bear Naked Nail Wipes ($9) from Josie Maran because they're a mess-free way to take off your polish, we're actually more impressed by their ability to smell so good. The grapefruit scent is effervescent and a far cry from the acidic smell of... [More]

Pizzeria Pronto Outdoor Pizza Oven

A few years back, we featured a Williams-Sonoma Outdoor Pizza Oven that cost $5,000. It gave us dreams of having pizza cookouts in our yard, but at that price, we were going to have to stick to calling Papa John's. Now Williams-Sonoma is offering a Pizzeria Pronto Outdoor Pizza Oven... [More]

nike-vapor-cyclone-packable-jacket-smll.jpg

Nike Vapor Cyclone Packable Jacket

A rain jacket: To bring or not to bring, that is the question. Because we are not big fans of being inconvenienced, we'll often chance being cold and possibly wet instead of having to carry a rain jacket around. But with this Nike Vapor Cyclone Packable Jacket ($135) we might... [More]

Cobalt Crinkle Midi Skirt

You might think that miniskirts are the best way to keep cool in warm weather, but we'd argue that a lightweight midi is probably your best option.

Chameleon Scotch Tape Dispenser

We've seen a lot of animal-themed office supplies, but not all of them made us exclaim, "That's so cute!" like this Chameleon Scotch Tape Dispenser ($12). How can you resist that clever adhesive tongue? Don't worry about it being a boring shade of gray. Like the real reptile it's modeled... [More]

peach-and-raspberry-jam-sm.jpg

White Peach & Raspberry Extra Jam

We're not sure about the "extra" part in Simon Johnson's White Peach & Raspberry Extra Jam ($16). Maybe it refers to the fact that the jar is packed with over eighty percent handpicked fruits (from Italian orchards, no less!). The price is a bit on the steep side, but we... [More]

You guys, seriously. This Youngs Farm Rosemary Jam ($12) is herbalicious.

Travel HoodiePillow

Our biggest gripe about neck pillows is that they tend to wear you rather than you wearing them. Here's a product that rights that wrong. The Travel HoodiePillow ($25) is more than a matching hood - the adjustable drawstrings allow you to close the hood low enough that it covers... [More]

hot_chocolate_wicked_1.jpg

Jacques Torres Wicked Hot Chocolate

Good hot chocolate - like Jacques Torres Wicked Hot Chocolate ($18) - uses actual chocolate rather than cocoa powder to create a flavorful, creamy beverage.

Mosely Box

Craps? This Mosely Box ($28) is far from crap, though it does resemble one of the six-sided dice required to play the game. Though the box has a working hinged lid, its size makes it more decorative than functional. Measuring in at a mere two-and-a-half inches wide, just about the... [More]

notorious-rbg-sm.jpg

Notorious R.B.G. Tee

We are immensely conflicted by the Notorious R.B.G. Tee ($28) from Human. On one hand, it's possibly the best thing we've seen on the internet all day - hell, all week. On the other hand, is it kinda disrespectful? After all, Ruth Bader Ginsberg is an honorable Supreme Court judge... [More]

YOU Be The Stylist: The Cool Way To Wear A Caftan

Caftans can be a fashion statement or a tragedy. We certainly aren't ok with looking like Mrs. Roper! However, we'd wear a caftan with any of the ensembles pictured here, but you tell us...which one would you rock? Orange You Glad I Wore This Tara Matthews Capo Embellished Bikini ($310)... [More]

Pimp My Pool at PoolSupplyWorld

No, it's not a new reality show (though we wouldn't be surprised if it gets picked up), it's time to gear up your pool for summer! If you think pimping your pool ends at a couple of tiki torches and a donut-shaped inflatable, think again. PoolSupplyWorld has a vast selection... [More]

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection

We love all of the shades included in Too Faced's Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection ($49), but we kind of wish they hadn't made them actually smell like chocolate. Resisting our 24/7 sugar craving is hard enough without breathing in the smell of a candy shop first thing in the... [More]

bear-doormat-sm.jpg

Haute Habitat Doormat

Maybe the Haute Habitat Doormat ($35) is less impressive than its real life counterparts, but that makes it waaay less dangerous to encounter, too.

Kemble Silk Flowers Clutch

Lush silk flowers, snakeskin leather...we can pretend that all it'd take to replicate KOTUR's Kemble Silk Flowers Clutch ($850) is a trip to Michaels and an afternoon with a glue gun, but we'd be kidding ourselves.

Civil Clothing No Scrubs Muscle Tee

TLC's "No Scrubs" was released in 1999 and somehow we still know all the words to this killer track. Maybe it's because it's our default end-of-the-night karaoke pick? Yet we're still always surprised how many times we're supposed to sing "No scrub, no, no" at the end of the song.... [More]

EYK Clay Ceramic Spoon Rest

These EYK Clay Ceramic Spoon Rests ($40) look so good together, but obviously you don't need seven by your stovetop. There's just not room for that, and besides, one might question the need for even one spoon rest. We think it's nice having a designated place to always put your... [More]

Muuto & David Geckeler Nerd Chair

We'll confess. We're not totally sure why Muuto & David Geckeler's design is called the Nerd Chair ($499). Maybe because each chair looks like something you'd sit in at a school desk?
