Accessory Trends

Editor's Pick~ Melting Tights by URB Clothing

On one hand, I think these Melting Tights by URB Clothing are pretty fantastic and man do I wish I had a pair when I was in Junior High in the 1980's. On the other hand, I cannot help but think, it seems as if one might have just peed glitter down their legs?

I think that if you like to shock people with your fashion these are an accessory must have for your wardrobe! I can see Ice Skaters or Roller Derby girls wearing these as a bold and flashy part of their uniforms. If anything the color combinations are quite innovative and totally fierce. The rubbery texture of the melting effect is so realistic.

Select from hues like baby blue, bubblegum pink, neon green or turquoise for colorful looks. Edgier fashionista 's will opt for black, black and white combo or even glitter melting tight designs.

 

 

 

The tights start at $50.00 and vary with selected styles.

What do you think of these fun tights? Will you be picking up a pair today?

Editor's Pick~ Coach Legacy Leather Tanner Tote

The Legacy Collection by Coach is a modern spin on the iconic styles from the brand's design archives. Owning a Coach bag for a woman is a tradition, a common right of passage. If you ask any young woman what her first designer handbag was, she will most likely reply-- Coach.

We are totally in love with all the styles and colors from the Legacy Collection and our favorite piece is the Leather Tanner Tote. This handbag is perfect for work, weekends and travel with its zip-top closure and many pockets to hold various items including your keys and cell phone.

Available in several vibrant colors: Cognac (traditional brown color), Sunflower (a bright yellow hue), Black, Carnelian (a rich red color) and our personal favorite Cobalt (a bold blue shade).
