Playful or Playboy Playmate, from the LV runway to the red carpet, will the bunny ear trend hit the streets? Looks like it... at least briefly. Spotted on the likes of MK & Ashley Olsen, Freja Beha, Lady Gaga & Madonna. Love it or hate it, hop to it! source: the guardian, stardustandsequins, hanneli mustapatra, studded hearts circa now
Ohh, Hanneli in NYC for FW, looking great in the MoMa sky umbrella! It's long-been a favorite of mine. I remember my dad toting it when I was a kid & it always made me smile. $48 to keep you cheerful on the greyest of days is well-worth it. Plus it's witty, stylish & super durable.
Fall's best inspiration is Caroline from carolinesmode. Yet another Swedish blogger with impeccable, effortless, edgy & sophisticated style. i'm loving the mostly-black, H&M infinity scarf/gloves & again, the boyfriend blazers.
P.S. the Scorett/Chloe Sevigny shoes are just $159, compared to the OC version for $625--available in November '09 source: carolinesmode

NYC based jewelry designer Erica Weiner offers an exquisite collection of memorabilia jewelry, each handmade piece with a distinct story to tell. Sifting through her website of nostalgic goods is like peeking into cabinets of curiosities, reading through Victorian forget-me-nots, or visiting the relics of the Natural History Museum. Each corner you turn is something eclectic that piques your interest, inspired by books, history, and folklore from around the world.
There's something for everyone: from the Flight Protection travel talisman bracelet, to the Waldorf Astoria cocktail pick (used to skewer martini olives from the '30's-50's) to the to the penis bone necklace ("Did you know that small mammals, like foxes, raccoons, and lynxes have penis bones that are disproportionately large to their body sizes? Well, they do. This is a 2 1/4" mammal's penis bone, probably from a fox, that has been cast in various precious metals.")
Each item is environmentally friendly, oxidized and plated to give off that antique heirloom quality. There's an element of surprise: some vials and pendants contain relics you won't discover until your package arrives. To boot, with prices ranging from $20-$110 it won't break your budget either.
