In case you live under a rock and haven’t heard, today is the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The world has been acting pretty ridiculous surrounding this event. There are some silly, tacky, nasty, ridiculous and just plain funny souvenirs, but my favorites are definitely the ones that don’t take this ‘event’ seriously at all.
Saw these at Pylones this weekend.
Sadly, this is only available in the UK
Royal sheets for your stay at special Premier Inns. Not creepy at all.
Come on, the 10 year old inside of you is thinking this too.
And drumroll please for my all time favorite wedding souvenir:
Don’t squint. You’re right. That is Prince Harry on the mug and no, I didn’t make this up.
It even includes ornate detailing and you can buy it here.
Imagine this. It’s Valentine’s Day. You get a fancy looking box just the right size for flowers. You wonder who it’s from. You sigh. You pull the ribbon. You slowly open the box (ok, who am I kidding, you quickly open the box). They’re dead. Each and every one of the flowers is dead. This must be a mistake. Right? Nop. It’s not.
It’s Dirty Rotten Flowers‘ doing. They actually offer the service of sending people you dislike, well hate, dead flowers. Check out the pictures below.
Valentine’s day is right around the corner. Even though I’m not expecting roses or chocolate, I certainly wouldn’t be able to appreciate it if someone sent me this. Not even the best intentions can disguise that the Hug E Gram must be one of the silliest things sold on the internet. This is its description:
A Hug-E-Gram lets you give your hug to someone when you can’t be there! It is the hug that lasts. You will understand how very special the moment can be as the love and sentiment from you comes through. The Hug-E-Gram is available in 3 different colors (Black, Red or Salmon). After you order, you may record a personalized message that will arrive with your Hug-E-Gram.
Imagine getting this in the mail for valentines. Would you actually put it on? Or would you leave it in a corner for the dog to chew on?
I wonder what the card would say. Maybe Hunny here’s a hug for my favorite part of you. Your love handles.
What would you write in the card if you were to send a Hug-E-Gram? Share it in the comments.
I rushed to H&M the day the Jimmy Choo for H&M line launched. I was excited and hopeful I would find a fabulous pair of the coveted Choo for my closet. The trip was unsuccessful and disappointing. They were ill-fitting, hard, and cheap looking. So I moved on. I didn’t think about it twice.
Now they go ahead and announce a Jimmy Choo and UGG collaboration. What is Tamara Mellon on?! I will admit I am a closeted UGG wearer (I reserve them for trips to school and Whole Foods), but I don’t think Tamara Mellon will be able to make them look trendy and fashionable. The reworked UGGs, which will launch in October, will keep the same shape, but will include “classic Jimmy Choo design details”
If collaborations aren’t your forte you move on and carry on ding what you do best– mile high stilettos and embellished flats.
If this is true, I dare to see it as the beginning of the end of Paris Fashion Week. Though it’s iconic and a legend in it’s own right, this might take it down a few notches on everyone’s list. Christian Audigier, the designer for Ed Hardy, has a clear image in my mind of rappers, fallen rock-stars and euro-trash. His looks are anything but classy and fashion forward so it was a shock for me to read on NY Mag’s The Cut blog that he’ll be showing at the Paris shows for Spring 2010. I can’t imagine seeing his show alongside Karl Lagerfeld’s or others of the like. Though he’s tacky, he’s not stupid. He’s promising a performance from a famous pop star. This is sure to get him press and his show excess attention.
In case you are a Christian Audigier fan, he just launched a range of champagne and wines.
‘Mourning Objects’ by Anna Schwamborn is a line of concept jewelry that is made up of your deceased loved one’s hair or ashes.Besides pure hair being used, cremated human ashes are mixed with black bone china, the world´s highest class porcelain. In her own words:
Wearable body pieces including human material
The collection of objects contains post-mortem memorial pieces which include aspects of a deceased corpse, namely hair and cremated ashes.
She has worked for Alexander McQueen and Vivianne Westwood, but had definitely gone crazier than both.
I find these to be not only ugly, but also very creepy. They have an erie quality to them and I don’t think anybody I know would like to be immortilized into odd-looking jewelry. This macabre jewelry line is very depressing. Jewelry should make you smile (or drool a little.)
I don’t think even Morticia Adams would be caught dead in these.
I’m a Mac fan. i wouldn’t go back to PC for anything, and I can’t stand vista. I love my iPod and don’t imagine myself using a Zune, a CD player or any of the other music players in the market, but some things are just too much. I thought this list was full of ridiculous things. An ipod coffee table?! and an iCePod ice-cream?! come on!

I’m a cupcake freak. So I’m bias on these. I think they’re cute, and I admire the talent and time put into them.
The dog one is amazing. Is that a display ipod? I have no idea, but it’s perfect. THe couple might as well have gone as the plug and the outlet. It’s just as cheesy , half as geeky, and would’ve taken less time.
I dont get it.

It doesn’t look like an ipod to me, just a very impractical building.
