How adorbs is this?
If you have a little girl or little girl family members, these swimsuits from Wetsuit Club are so cute.
Whether you’re doing the beach thang, or hangin’ at the pool, these colorful swimsuits let sassy little gals swim in style. These rich hues, playful details, unique 3-D and novel designs are also UPF 50. Even better.
And if you’re all like: “What about our little men?” Wetsuit Club offers plenty of coolness for the boys.
Shop online or in person at Dillard's or Stein Mart. Why can't grown ups have cute swimsuits?
When it comes to all-things Asian, people think: Chinese or Japanese. Well, eff that. Don’t forget the Koreans. The best of all the Asian folk. And we can say that, because Crack Wise Editor-in-Chief Kathy Vogel is half Korean, and very proud of that!
Also, the female members of the Crack Wise staff can’t resist a good handbag. Some might say there’s a slight obsession with the accessory. But, we don’t like to label things… when it comes to us. Ha!
A couple of KACYYOM handbags caught our eye. Yes, because Miss Universe Catriona Grey was spotted on the streets with two of the brand’s bags. And because they looked cool.
We like that each design has a name in Korean and, thus, a meaning attributed to that handbag.
Sadly, you’ll never see us with either bag. First of all, we’re not taking out a second mortgage for this. Secondly, we’ve got too much crap to fit into these handbags.
Someday, our bodies and our bags will be slimmer.
Fashion is edgy and… we don’t know what other adjective to use at this point. We’re kinda diggin’ the newest baubles from bonheur’s FW19 collection.
Being square is a good thing. And if you’ve got the cash to drop on some bling, why not?
We’re curious, though, as to what FW19 stands for? It could stand for “Fashion Week 19”—which is a big deal in the fashion world. We’d like to think it stands for “F*ckin’ Wow!” because that’s the reaction one may feel appreciating this jewelry’s simple beauty. Or perhaps, what one would say after seeing the price.
P.S. Is it us, or do the earrings look like a skinny New Mexico?
Forget Labor Day. Wear white clothing and accessories any time the mood strikes! Personally, we aren’t fans of the color white. Because we’re slobs. Anything white we’d wear will instantly attract some kind of stain. Guaranteed.
But, we do like these white boots from Chinese Laundry.
The Radiant Bootie in cloud retails for $89.99. Not bad for “fashion”.
The reason we like ‘em? They look like a short Go-go boot. Don’t know what a Go-go boot is? Look at the above picture, but imagine them coming up to just under the knee. You’ve seen ‘em—especially in costume shops since they’re not en vogue currently.
We view these Chinese Laundry boots as an option for someone who wants the Go-go glam and glitter without the “hoe” label.
As much as it’s liberating for females to unleash the “sweater puppies” as soon as they get home from work, there are other precious hours in the day when those puppies need kept in their “cages”.
Harper Wilde is stepping up its wrangling game—be it “puppies” or “rolls”. The female staffers (and even a few of the dudes) at Crack Wise feel like they need to wear a shaper 24/7, lest the flab run freely.
Props to this startup company for offering 31 sizes across all styles and colors, with band sizes up to 42 and cups A through F.
And the best part? A price that won’t kill our budget: $40.
Harper Wilde has made its name known in less than a year with its female-owned, socially-conscious attitude with a mission to “Lift Up the Ladies”.
Pair that with exceptional quality and thoughtful features like front-adjusting straps and smoothing fabric—our “puppies” will be snuggly happy!
Ladies, ladies, ladies. The reason why you may not be fit is not because you ate a bag of Funyons while watching the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it’s because you didn’t have the right colored workout gear on.
Research has shown that certain colors influence our workout. So…MoveMe Athleisure Wear has thoughtfully paired colors with workouts.

Why do we feel if we wear the purple we’re still going to look like Violet in Charlie and The Chocolate Factory?
And another thing… is it us, or does the purple chick look like she’s farting?
Usually, we aren’t fans of couples that match. Gag. We get it. You loves each other sooo much and you’re sooo in-sync with each other that you wear matchy-matchy stuff.
In fact, it’s a little potential-serial-killer-in-the-making creepy. But this is the exception. His & Hers watches from SOLGAARD DESIGN. They match when it comes to shape, so that’s acceptable.
Sustainable product entrepreneur Adrian Solgaard is a fan of function and environmental consciousness. These unique hex-shaped timepieces are made from the highest-grade stainless steel, harnessing “gravitational logic” allowing the brain to tell time faster.
What? We don’t even know what that means, but it sounds super groovy to us!
If time isn’t your thing, there are other items you could buy for yourself and your sweetie.
Plus, a portion of proceeds will go towards the removal of five pounds of plastic from the world’s oceans.
This is good Valentine’s Day gifting.
