“Last call” in my world doesn’t mean the bar is going to stop serving, it means I need to go home because I only have 5% power left on my phone. If you’re the type of person who needs a mini crow-bar to pry your phone of your hands, then have I got good news for you!
Introducing Everpurse, the first bag with a built-in docking system that can charge your phone up to two times before the purse needs recharging itself.
Everpurse is designed to charged the iPhone 4/4S/5 and Samsung Galazy S III by simply slipping your phone into a interior pocket where it will click into place. When your purse need more juice, simply lay it flat on the thin charging mat that comes with it.
Everpurse opens this month but with a limited run. You can also pre-order for a May or June shipment.
Finally, a bag as powerful as you.
Shine On You Crazy Diamond
One day you’re happily engaged and the world is awesome. The next day you come home and find your fiancee’s engagement ring abandoned on the table next to yesterday’s leftovers. That’s what happened to Josh Opperman who became so frustrated trying to sell the ring and recoup his losses that he created I Do Now I Don’t.
The website is an eBay of sorts for engagement rings and wedding bands except the jewelry is verified by a gemologist. There’s even a 10-day guarantee if the customer isn’t happy - too bad you can’t get the same guarantee after you say “I do”.
Best part about this website is the story that comes with each item listed, like the one for the ring below - “I sold my motorcycle for a girl. Worst decision I’ve ever made lol. I want my motorcycle back so I’m selling the ring so I can buy another bike.”
I Do Now I Don’t has around 325 listings per month and has expanded into all types of jewelry and even wedding dresses. If it didn’t work out, sell it on this website. After all, ‘tis better to have loved and lost instead of spending the rest of your life with the wrong person.

I don’t know about you, but I’m having NYFW overload. I wish there was more coverage on accessories, which are my focus. Luckily I can get a quick fix from Christina Nicole handcrafted metal jewelry.
The husband & wife duo create the jewelry together making this eco-friendly line a true love story and just before Valentine’s Day.
I realize it’s winter in New York City and I’m not expecting a tropical breeze, but man, it’s been downright brutal lately. Luckily I have a go-to accessories designer for curing the winter blues.
Angie Johnson, the Canadian designer behind Norwegian Wood, has added a few new pieces to her popular collection. If this style looks familiar to you, it should - she’s done custom work for Susie of Style Bubble, Tavi of The Style Rookie and she’s carried in TopShop and Anthropologie.
My current faves are:
I love the combination of raw elements paired with modern design.
Many, many times I have stood in front of my closet staring at the amazing Karen Millen dress that I picked up in Glasgow and prayed that matching accessories would instantly show up so I could finally wear it… and then I passed it over for something that I’ve worn a dozen times before.
What I need in my life is StylSavvy - the new iPad app that “allows you to visualize the latest trends from leading retailers, designers and brands with what’s in your closet. Designed and developed by a woman to solve the age old problems of how to combine clothing to create new outfits and buying what you actually need to complete outfits from all those separates in your closet.”
You can literally shop and build your wardrobe without leaving your bed which is perfect for someone like me that is usually suffering from a champagne hangover. Check off “purchase the perfect wardrobe” from my 2013 resolutions.
“Declaration of Intention” poster is a cute way to start the new year. The easy part is buying it on Etsy… the hard part is actually filling it out.
So now that the holidays are over, this means guilt-free shopping for yourself again!
My first stop on the shopping train is going to be Ibby And Rufus. I’m smitten with the edgy toughness of bullet shells and the feminine softness of embroidery. At very reasonable prices, I can indulge in both styles.
