Because Beyonce said so.
If you listen to one thing.
Stackable rings are boring. They’re supposed to make your fingers look slender and dainty and pretty, or something, but really—they’re just nonsense jewelry constantly on the verge of being lost and usually flimsy. Unless you throw some cat ears on them. Then, it’s worth it. And it was only time before Catbird jumped to it with its new subtle-enough Lovecats design.
Also, the pointy ears seem to make for a good weapon. Just saying.
Since the world has decided that, in fact, orange is the new black, why not fill your tiny apartment with some orange no-purpose-whatsoever chairs? This beaut, designed by Patricia Urquiola (manufactured by Kartell), is called the Comback chair. Not to be confused with ‘comeback,’ which maybe makes more sense? The backrest is meant to symbolize teeth, but to me it just looks like a row of juicy Chiclets. The orange ones did always hold flavor the longest. Anyway, it seems comfortable. Enough.
The Ferrite collection, a set of ferrofluid art pieces being called the “new lava lamps of the 21st Century,” may not illuminate the neon globs of wonder you’re used to, but don’t be fooled: the interactive nature matched with sleek glass tubes brings “lava lamp seduction” and overall hypnotism to another level. Watch the video and see for yourself. (h/t Geeks are Sexy)
This Compass throw pillow by Zach Terrell probably won’t help my abysmal sense of direction, but at least if I lay my head on it long enough I can say I’ve absolutely tried everything.
I’m pretty sure I’m not sophisticated enough to wear a silk scarf. To walk around seriously with something so delicate and chichi tied around my neck seems like a joke. I’ve been gifted tons (go figure), and they sit folded in a drawer I rarely open. On what occasion do you wear one, anyway? A funeral or something, right? Good & Co.’s scarves have changed my attitude. Slightly. The fun mix of photography and travel and art and style — and that they probably feel like butter melting in your hands — has me, for the first time, convinced I’m ready to handle the look.
Because the holes in my Converse aren’t cool anymore and no matter how hard I try, I can’t stay away from striped anythings, I think I probably should get a pair of the new Keds x Kate Spade canvas sneakers. If not for the fun 60s-inspired pointy toes and screaming red insoles, then to spare my socks.
