Blog Round-Up: What We Found on the Web Last Week
November 12, 2006
On Wednesday we got our opinion about premium denim in print: â€œYou will pay anything for a pair of jeans that make you look good,” said Michelle Madhok, a San Ramon native and shopping expert who now writes the blog, Shefinds.com, from New York. “I would rather try on swimsuits than jeans. If you find a pair that fits you right, the cost becomes less of a barrier to entry.” Check-out these photos that denimology found to illustrate our point — Behold Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio.
In the top photo she wears a pair of Taverniti So Jeans which cost $200 and which make her look a million dollars.
In the photo below she models a pair of Victoria’s Secret Jeans which cost $90 and manage the astonishing feat of making her look almost ordinary.
And — if you want to make an exit like a Brazilian — you’re going to need a Bangin’ Booty. Fabsugar covets the Curves-Up Wonderbot with removable pads that form a heart shape. These are meant for the ladies looking for a little bit of extra junk in their trunk
As long as we’re talking about hidden surprises — how about these rings found on stylehive?
Carrie Westonâ€™s Sandwich Ring – bacon, lettuce, tomato and two bread slices in stackable sterling silver or 14K gold. For something a little more personal, the Pulse Ring available at Roule has your EKG printout with your name and date engraved inside the band. For loved ones, Treasure Rings incorporate a hinged band designed to hold a 48 character hidden message.
Finish off the meal with a Coffee & Cigarettes Ring — found on This Next.
and if you’re not so good at remembering you might slip this Remember Ring on your (or someone you love who is a tad forgetful’s) finger.
The simple band heats up to 120F degrees for at least 10 seconds, on every hour starting from the day before your anniversary date. The ring is powered by a battery that will charge itself using your body heat, so it will not go dead before it gets to burn you. Good to know. (via popgadget)
