If I were a baller, I would invest in these “De-Feathered” earrings because (a) of the 14-kt. gold-plated chains and gold-filled posts, and (b) thanks to the gold-plating, I know I wouldn’t get an ear infection. What’s anything worth if you haven’t got your health?
And these high quality earrings not only have bling in them and will save your life from potential gross-ears-syndrome, they’re also a step up from your usual chicken-feathers-that-have-been-dyed-to-look-really-cool feather earrings. These earrings are made from soft guinea feathers, which feature a lovely spotted texture.
As my friend Judy said, “Dude, those earrings are freaking pretty.”
Yes, indeed they are.
This one is for sibling love. Sisterly sibling love.
From Spreegirl, this “Relaxed Modern” onesie in rose from Spreegirl is not just any old onesie.
It’s one made with mad love and care (and eco-friendly, super soft bamboo fibers too!).
Born in Vietnam, Chinese American Sisters May and Vinh Luong are as tight as two sisters can come. Not only do they share the most intimate details of their lives with one another, they share three intimate apparel lines and have really taken innerwear to the streets. Quite literally.
Inspired by the notion, “It’s not just sleepwear, it’s fashion,” the sisters work together to design and create modern constructions of comfortable and stylish skivvies, rompers, and other intimate apparel that can be worn on the outside.
Anything from nature to exotic environments inspire them to create, and their tight bond and passion for sleep fashion can be seen woven into the softness of the onesie. Sheer, light, and simple in design, this onesie will be perfect for you as you curl up with a movie to have some sister-sister bonding time or as a sisterly gift.

I have a job working with fabrics and stitching, sewing, serging them together to make costumes for plays. And if I recall correctly, chiffon is stinkin’ hard to work with. It’s soft and flimsy, and it’s nearly impossible getting your stitches in straight when the material keeps slipping through your fingers.
But I would gladly sew a gazillion chiffon dresses together for TLé Designs “Luna” dress. It’s not made of just any old chiffon … it’s made with crinkle chiffon! Which gives it the nice textured look and the illusion that the fabric is moving, even when you’re not! A cute mini with vented sleeves and a thin strappy leather belt — you can wear it with a pair of leggings or be a little adventurous and bare your legs.
Either way, you win.
Many people may not agree with me, but I like Pamela Anderson. Mostly known for her work in Baywatch and Playboy, Pamela is not known for her work as an animal activist. She is a huge advocate for animal rights, urging people to boycott goods and foods that hurt or abuse animals.
This “Christopher” messenger bag by Navoh Handbags is a small satchel with a top zipper closure and a back zip-up pocket. It has two cell phone compartments and can be carried on your arm or over the shoulder. Peek inside, and you’ll see lovely yellow and blue flowers looping their way across a plum background. And you don’t have to kill any animals to get it. It’s made of the finest faux leather.
Pamela would be proud.
So I’ve been doing some thrift store shopping lately. Partially to save some money, but mostly to be hip. And with this set of 4 stackable rings from Marcia Moran, I can save money and be hip because I can get four rings for the price of one.
All of them are 18-kt. gold plated. And you can’t forget the cubic zirconia disc that’s been carefully crafted onto one of the rings to give it a nice contrast to the other exquisitely simple bands.
Mix and match the rings, wear them on different fingers, or put them on all at once, whatever rocks your boat. Thank goodness they’re nickel and lead free, hypo-allergenic. Health conscious and fashion forward.
It’s been forever since I last listened to indie music. Though my taste in music has changed since my young’un days when I blasted The Killers or the next up-and-coming band, I can still appreciate it — the power blast from the lyrics and amazing guitar riffs, especially if it’s catchy enough to push repeat.
Reminiscent of No Doubt’s Gwen Stefani’s vocals supported by a steady stream of drum and bass and everything in between, Chinese-Taiwanese-Thai American vocalist Teresa Lee Chaisiri packs a powerful punch. Her voice soars above the intermingling melodies and the steady pound of the percussion as it heralds lyrics that pull you into the music to create an incredible blend of punk soul.
Rolling Stone said they “embody the defiance and joie de vivre that define rock music,” while MTV World described them as “Harder than The Killers and tighter than Pat Benatar ever was. Pure post‐punk energy with a melodic heart.”
Take a listen to their song “If Nothing Happened” off their debut album Ballad Nerd Pop:
Teresa even sings in Mandarin in their song “Anything At All.”
PaperDoll kicked butt at Kollaboration NY last month (how could they not with a front woman in such a cute, retro get-up?).

You will not believe the amount of stress I go through. Generally, I get about four to six hours of sleep every night, more if I’ve gotten an early head start to my day, less if I’ve decided to cause some late-night mischief or have a deadline to meet.
Yes. I am a self-proclaimed workaholic.
And I think I like it.
But being a workaholic takes a lot of work. Especially when taking care of your skin because that’s one of the first things to deteriorate when you lose sleep or aren’t getting enough nutrition. And I’m sure the stress doesn’t do anything to help with wrinkles and stress lines. I haven’t even had my midlife crisis yet, and I’m starting to see the beginnings of canyons form on my forehead.
Lavere Natural Anti-Aging Solution Face Mask is the ultimate treat for your tired skin. It comes in a 1-oz. bottle, easy for you to carry in your purse, and it leaves your skin hydrated, clear and absolutely glowing. The invigorating organic oils and plant extracts do wonders for your skin, leaving your skin looking visibly refreshed and younger.
I love graffiti. I think it’s one of the most unappreciated art forms, and I desperately wish that I was capable of tagging. Scrawl my name in colors on billboards and trucks and trains.
Not that I am promoting vandalism.
One way to enjoy political art without getting into trouble with the cops is with this Harajuku Lovers “Rock & Roll” slouch tank. It has the logo stylishly running down the back on a femme flower pattern, perfect for summer. On the front is a bold sketch of a glam girl (could it be Joan Jett?), and it comes with a yellow bandeau to be worn together or separately.
Artsy and cute? I’m down.
One way you can be fashion forward and green this summer is with a pair of Kayu “Rawa” sunglasses. With its sleek and polished frames, these spekkies will work with any summer dress, beach wear, or your favorite pair of jeans. Whether you’re rocking them at a lunch date with a girlfriend or just giving your eyes some TLC, you can be sure that you’ll look fly and be doing your share in saving the environment.
These shades are not only made with all natural bamboo, but with every purchase, Kayu will fund a sight-restoring surgery. Their commitment to this cause is because even though “80% of blindness is curable or preventable, 36 million people in the world are needlessly blind,” says designer Jamie Lim. With their chic design and promise to a worthy cause, who wouldn’t want to purchase a pair?
My ex-boyfriend hated black jewelry. He thought it looked “Goth.” Needless to say, he also had poor fashion sense, and I got rid of him.
Okay, fine, maybe this does look a little “Goth,” but so what? It rocks. From Femme Metale, this Noble Fleur Onyx ring is set with a smooth, inky-black stone in an antique silver band with four Fleur de Lis clasping it. The oval shape gives it a classy feel without losing its edge, and it’s versatile enough to look bomb with a casual V-neck and jeans or a trendy LBD.
