Le Vero - a Tokyo-based design company - has just come out with its newest collection: Business is Pleasure. The name really says it all as the inspiration for the collection came from the two designers’ love for passion in the work place. The new line includes personalized wallets, passport holders, computer bags, and business card cases. Backed by Kickstarter, every piece of this collection is super chic with a retro flare. I totally know what I’m getting my sister for her birthday now. Read More

Remember when baby stilettos were a thing? Remember how they never really caught on? Yeah, let’s hope this trend meets the same end.
Baby Bangs, the company responsible for the newest line of toddler toupees, believes “in the beauty of childhood.” So they invented patent pending headband accessories that are making waves across, gee, I don’t know, sandboxes? I guess? The results are pretty weird.
Now, this would be all fine and dandy and laughable if it weren't for the company’s blatantly gendered mission. Read More

The Sweet Kili Kili Workshop crafts cute accessories with an edge. That barrette might look like a simply beautiful flower at first glance, but take a closer look and you'll find a tiny skull hidden beneath the petals. Any piece that isn't complete with a handgun or skeletal figure is still delightfully unique in its own way. Where else can you find a bracelet that features pearls, lace, and a mint chocolate waffle bowl? The Sweet Kili Kili Workshop's creations add a dash of vibrant whimsy to your day, whether your outfit is chock-full of color or needs a little spicing up. Read More

Add some punch and pizazz to your boring white dress shirt with collar clips, my must-have accessory of the year.
Most collar clips are easy to put on and take off (providing a quick and temporary way to get two shirts out of one), and you can find some reasonably priced ones at consignment stores, etsy.com, and ebay.com (tip: search for "collar tips" in addition to "collar clips").
For even more punch and pizazz, try putting collar clips on patterned dress shirts.
Vintage Gold Tone Collar Clips, $2.68, jolasvintagefinds.etsy. Read More

When I was younger, I lasted in my local chapter of the girl scouts for a whole two weeks before I quit. In that time frame I never got any cool patches or anything, but I did get to sell and eat lots of those delicious thin mint and coconut-y cookies. And although all of the women who ran my sect of the girl scouts were extremely pretentious, I’ve always secretly found scout culture interesting. Read More
