Much like Flavor Flav, I enjoy a large “statement” necklace, so I plotzed when I saw Young Frankk’s brass chokers, which resemble giant metal collars. You can special-order them by contacting her through her Etsy store ($78, including shipping in the U.S.), where you can also find a selection of other ridiculously cute pieces. I got mine yesterday, and I’m already planning on never taking it off:
The mastermind behind Young Frankk is ... Read More
The fall lines and looks are starting to appear every place I turn and I couldn't be more excited. Fall is my favorite time of year. I call it "tights and sweater" season which makes me infinitely happy considering my giant drawer of colorful tights and shelves of crazy sweaters, which were kind of useless in my hometown of San Antonio, Texas. Like my Summer Wishlist last June, I decided to culminate all the things I'm in love with at the moment and either can't ... Read More

Luckily, there’s a fantastic solution for fussy nail-biters like me - glue-on nails! We showcased some fabulous talons and decals (who wouldn’t want Tom ... Read More

When someone asks me what I want for gifts I’m often at a loss. Usually all I ever want are books, but, being a literature student and having worked in a bookstore, I also usually know more about books than whoever will be giving me the gift. It’s rare that someone is able to give me a book that I like that I also haven’t already read.
But recently I’ve discovered several literary-themed items that any book-lover would adore.

It’s said that a woman’s purse contains all sorts of mysterious items that baffle the male species.
So imagine a dude’s reaction upon finding a clitoris inside (if he’s completely baffled, perhaps you should do us all a favor and explain it to him).
Yes, thanks to The Purssy, you can now celebrate your lady parts and store your necessities.
On the outside it looks like a normal clutch, but when you open it ... Read More
