The Joey Bra!

30 Apr

If you’ve ever put together the perfect “going-out” ensemble and realized you didn’t want to lug a purse around BUT wondered where the heck you could stash your ID and phone…FEAR NO MORE: someone has created a stash bra – a bra with a pocket called The Joey Bra!

According to their website, “the first sexy, yet functional pocketed bra that will allow you to leave your purse behind and hit the dance floor without ever having to worry about the safety of your valuables. Our unique design will hold most cellphones, ID, key, and other small items regardless of bust size – no amount of items will change the way your bra fits you.

Now this sounds like a pretty good idea (better than shoving cash in your cleavage) but I can’t imagine an iPhone in your armpit is too comfy. And, it could also be hard to access if you’re not wearing a tank top or something with a low neck…and you probably won’t look too classy reaching for your money at the cash bar at your cousin’s wedding!

That’s One Spoiled Baby!

19 Apr

At just under $3,200 you can spoil your baby with their own Baby Jaccuzzi! It’s a little more expensive than just using your kitchen sink for baths—which probably came free with your home—but does your sink provide soft relaxing jets of bubbles? And does it have a set of colored LEDs on the bottom for soothing chromatherapy sessions? Probably not, which means you need to get the baby whirlpool by MagicBath!

The tub itself DOES look expensive and high quality…but what is up with the rubbermaid stand!?

Katniss Dress by Calvin Klein

16 Apr

Seems like everyone has Hunger Games fever, including top designers! Calvin Klein and Jennifer Lawrence have made red carpet magic together in the past (Oscars 2011):

And again at a Hunger Games red carpet:

And now Calvin Klein is giving a nod to his muse by creating a “Katniss” dress:

The dress cost $5,000 (kinda pricey) and according to Net-a-Porter it’s – “A key piece from the runway, this apricot silk-crepe dress is a fashion-forward take on the sweet palette. Give this cutout design a streamlined finish with a few gold accents and ankle-strap sandals.” But let’s face it, if we had Jennifer Lawrence’s body, we’d spend that amount of money on dresses too!

Really? Picnic Pants?

30 Mar

Sometimes we come up with crazy ideas and never do anything about them – and a lot of the times that’s a good thing! Well an Italian brand called Acquacalda has decided to go ahead and MAKE THEM! ICK!

They say the pic-nic pant, promises to “take advantage of the usual cross-legged position to become a comfortable surface usual for consumption of a meal outdoors.” In other words, pants that serve as a table top or, well, pants on which you can have an actual picnic! Look at the photos below:

If the photos are any indication, these things look kinda crazy and hard to walk in! Not sure who is doing so much picnicing they need a special pair of pants – but to each their own!

 

Engagement Ring Trends for 2012

21 Mar

Another year, another trend! Last year it was a cluster of diamonds to give the illusion of one huge rock, and just a few years back everyone was crazy about princess cut…here are the engagement ring trends for 2012 according to fashion editors at Shine:

Black Diamond Engagement Rings: If you want something less traditional, go for the sophisticated and glamorous black diamond engagement ring. You can pick out a black diamond in a variety of styles, including vintage designs, a gemstone halo design, or a more contemporary cut that looks like a piece of modern art. Black diamonds set in a band with very intricate details and engravings can be a non-traditional alternative to gleaming white diamond rings.

 

Antique Engagement Rings: Vintage-style engagement rings can be much more elaborate and are often fashioned with pave-set diamonds, milgrain detailing, and engraved designs. Most of the rings in this style are only available in platinum or white gold. They’re designed to look like a family heirloom and have a more classic, traditional appearance.

 

 

Floral Bands: One of the more unique engagement rings of the year, bands carved with flower or leaf designs and embedded with diamonds or gemstones can be an eye-catching alternative to the traditional band. These intricately-detailed rings are much more ornate than a simple band with a diamond. Some are accented with pave diamonds while others feature micro diamonds and studded detailing. These can be ideal for those looking for a more feminine style and softer look.

 

Emerald Cut Engagement Rings: More of a classic style that continues to be a top trend year after year, emerald cut engagement rings have a very regal quality to them and the focal point falls right on the large diamond in the center of the ring. The angular style of emerald cut engagement rings are balanced with a single band studded with pave diamonds or two or three bands that support the large diamond in the center. You can stick with a gleaming white diamond for a more traditional look, or pick out sapphire engagement rings and other gemstones as the accent or focal point of this ring style.

The rifle scope with crosshairs serves as the camera lens which is able to zoom in on intended subject and date/time stamp the shot. The object of the invention is to allow for simulation of game hunting and provide for documentation of the hunt by photo or video…The actual still shot or video capturing function is “trigger” operated, simulating a lethal shot on an intended target.
