I recently saw this gear ring in person when one of my brother's friends showed it to me. It isn't just a ring with gear decorations. These gears work! I have never seen a piece of jewelry that is so fun to play with (and I always play with my jewelry). I don't know if I could actually wear this ring because I would never do anything but spin it. Watch the video to see how it works. Also, the video shows it as a men's ring, but I saw it on a woman's hand. It looks equally cool on either gender and makes a unique gift for any and all mechanically minded people. (F.Y.I. Father's Day is next month, and lots of people are graduating with mechanically-inclined degrees). The Kinekt Gear Ring is made of stainless steel and sells for $165.
I love Miu Miu's harlequin themed show from Spring Summer 2008, especially this sweetly sexy striped mini dress. Kensie created a cute green version that's more wearable for everyday life. It's $118 at Macy's and perfect for spring. Now if I could find an inexpensive version of that show's teacup heels...
Thank you 3.1 Philip Lim! You've appeased my co-desires for wearability and an edge of funk. Love the ruffled sequin tops. Love the layered zips. Love the ruffled shoes. The shoes!!! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Anna Sui was fabulous Anna Sui with all the prints and colors and tribal influences. Of course, I'm biased in favor of anything that looks like a hippie-gypsy-pirate. Happy! Happy! Again, the shoes are amazing. Kudos to her also for sending out happy models, because smiling should never be out of fashion.Vera Wang, always one of my favorites, was just as sleek, romantic and modern as I would hope. I always like her neutral palette with occasional splashes of color. She used lots of sheer fabrics in this collection, but it's more ethereal than daring. The shiny details also keep things exciting. Image source style.com.
Why We Love It: Winter. Blarg. It snowed yesterday. It will probably snow today. I'm so done. I want to wear pretty shirts and not freeze to death. These skirts from Sandee Royalty make me think of spring, and anything that makes me thing of spring is super happy right now.
