Watch out! This pair of KILLER Chanel heels could get you into some trouble. Socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson was arrested a couple of days ago at Zurich airport’s security checkpoint for carrying these babies in her luggage. The shoes are designed by Karl Lagerfeld and Madonna has also been known to rock the Chanel Satin Gun Heels. Gun laws may need some attention with these fashion weapons.
At first glance these four little bottles may look like your staple nail polish set but think again – they’re actually highlighters! The cute set called Highstylers can be purchased for $7.95 on BaronBob.com. These office supplies will definitely be the ‘highlight’ of your stationery collection and for all the working gals – you can now highlight in style. Each set comes with a pink, yellow, orange and blue Highstyler. It’s practically a manicure for those boring notes and text books!
Lady Gaga has a hot new pair of wheels. After receiving surgery on her hip, Gaga commissioned jewelry designer Ken Borochov to design a wheelchair to help her get around in style (featured above). Borochov had one week to design the chair, which has 24-karat gold wheel spokes and plush leather seats. Take note celebrity stylists: when your celebrity is injured you better make sure their mobility device is nothing short of fashion bling. At the current exchange rate, Gaga’s golden chair is worth about $2600 in gold weight and we’re pretty sure Gaga’s gold rush will have all her little monsters going gaga.
This past weekend at the famous South by Southwest (SXSW) conference, the smarty-pants at Google showed up with their latest prototype: a pair of talking shoes. The motion sensing, “smart shoes” have an embedded speaker on the tongue that can talk to you if they sense you are being lazy, not moving enough or encourage you when you’re moving or exercising. The shoes were designed in collaboration with Adidas and can relay the information to your smartphone. For example they can tell you how fast you are moving.
Google has given new meaning to what the tongue of a shoe is meant to do with these smart sneakers, which is to smack-talk its wearer in this case. The shoes aren’t for sale but we’re wondering just how advanced the technology could get. Hopefully for most people the shoes won’t get too “smart” and be able to detect things like foot odor. Just imagine getting shouted at by your shoes saying, “Yo bro, your feet stink!” Nevertheless, sneakers just got a whole lot smarter thanks to Google.
These boots may at first appear to be myth just like the unicorns they are trying to emulate, but they actually exist! The shoes are sold by Oonacat on Etsy and are made to order and completely customizable. They retail for about $440 (a small price to pay for own hooves right?). But, don’t start galloping for joy just yet, because the boots do come with a warning note by the seller: “Oonacat is not responsible in any way for any harm done to those that wear these hooves, nor is Oonacat responsible in any way, to harm done to those around those that wear these hooves.” In fact, the footwear is so extreme that there is also a video to show you how to walk in your hooves. Lets just say, wearing heels will be a piece of cake after you try these babies on. So why not channel your inner unicorn and switch up your heels for hooves once in a while (just don’t break your neck).
Eyeball over these lips for a few seconds and you’ll probably get a little ‘creeped’ out. Lets face it us girls love a new make-up trend but this is definitely one we hope NEVER catches on. The photo almost appears to be an inversion of the popular meme from 2005 known as Mouth Eyes where people placed their mouth on their eyes using photoshop and then uploaded the images. We found out the photo actually came from Swedish make-up artist Sandra Holmbolm who has even more crazy make-up tricks to check out..
A big black dog outside the Orange County Museum of Art in Newport Beach has been causing quite a stir and the owner (aka artist) Richard Jackson is to blame. He has constructed a perfectly proportioned 28-foot fiber glass and composite material sculpture of a dog lifting his leg up against the museum wall. The piece is titled “Bad Dog” and will remain until the conclusion of Jackson’s exhibition on May 5th. The best part about the sculpture is that the giant pooch is equipped to spray yellow paint onto the building. At least the residents of the O.C. can be grateful that no poop scooper is needed … for now. This giant piece is definitely marking its territory in a big way!
If coffee wasn’t enough to wake you up in the mornings, now you can just add DoubleKick Caffeinated Hot Sauce ($9.99) to your eggs instead of Tabasco. This flavorful chili sauce combines ginger and caffeine for an added punch. Personally, we’d also suggest adding a couple of spoonfuls to a Bloody Mary as an extra potent hangover cure. Who could have predicted that caffeine would find it’s way into condiments? Is ketchup next?
If you went to college, chances are you are at least semi-decent at the game of beer pong. And, if you were hoping to pass along that skill to your offspring, here’s your chance. At a recent NYC toy fair, one of the stands was hawking a game called Bear Pong – essentially a giant version of beer pong with buckets in lieu of cups. Let’s hope the parents are opting for a different liquid than beer to fill those buckets. But seriously, what’s next? Flip cup for toddlers?
The joke is almost too obvious to make here. FaceChairs.com now sells chairs with seat cushions that feature the smiling mug of your favorite (or least favorite) celebrities like Ryan Gosling, Anna Wintour and Brad Pitt.
Look, this is definitely a funny idea, and we love the thought of sitting on Clooney’s face as much as the next girl (sorry, had to). It really just depends on how far you are willing to take that RyGos fan girl-ism.. or how bad that Vogue internship was 10 years ago. It’s your money.
The good news is that most of the chairs have now been reduced in price from the original hefty $950 to under $500. We won’t judge you… quite as hard now.
