Stuff that’s so awesome it hurts, Vol. 21


This week’s volume is full is quirkiness, snark and enthusiasm. Enjoy!

1. Finger Food Mini Plates. Finally, a safe way to hold my caviar when I’m sipping on champagne. Do you know how long I’ve been searching for something like this?? Forever.  So, this may be a clever way to hold both an hors d’oeuvre and a cocktail, but there’s something vaguely unclassy about strapping a mini plate to your finger so you can chow down. Plus, I’m not sure how you actually keep the food on your little plate when sipping.

2. The Meat Eater Earrings by AlwaysAmy. ZOMG! T-Rex earrings! I’ve got to get these and wear them with everything. Think of the fear I will inspire with these meat-eating monsters on my ears. I love dinosaurs. Though, I wonder what they are looking at.

3. ASOS Satin Pleated Peep Toe Platform Shoe. These teal satin pumps are so pretty.  Just in time for the fall and winter party season, too.  Okay, so maybe you don’t consider Christina Aguilera a style icon, but these really are lovely.

4. Sport Wine Charms by glassidentities. Shrinky Dinks! Wine! Sports! For the sports fan and wine enthusiast in your life, I present to you these sports-themed wine charms.  Football isn’t just for Miller Lite anymore.  (Now it’s also for Franzia. Ha ha, burn.)

5. Toto Knits Safari Sweaters for Baby. This little lion is too cute! This sweater (and the other adorable sweaters on the site) are knit by women in Nairobi.  So, these sweaters are warm, cute and good for the world.  Look at how fierce this lion is.  Grrr.

That’s all for this week. Tune in next time. And while you wait, did you see these horrific pants?
