Cute Contact Case


I've been searching for a decently cute contact case for awhile now. And by searching, I mean glancing through the aisle in CVS when I remember. But, lucky for all you, I happened to stumble over a great travel case here online! A place to put extra solution, a mirror, a simple, chic case, what more could you ask for? Just $12 at MoMAstore.

X Marks the Spot

I'm pretty picky with my underwear, I have a funny shape so it's hard to find a pair that fits well. If you happen to be build like me (narrow hips, tiny bum, wide waist) then you will love these boyshorts by Kara Janx. They're only $20 and they're so very comfortable, I could spend all day in them!

Black Leather Jacket


If you know me, than you know I love asymmetry. Here's a darling leather jacket with a great asymmetrical button closure that's on sale! Get it at Nordstrom for $179 (down from $268).

Sequin Heels


To go with my many themes of the day, here is a pair of sequin accented heels. They are also sold by a Gap Inc. store, Piperlime. They are quite wallet friendly, being on sale for $50. And they perfectly match the outfit for the day, with just a touch of sequins (fully sequin shoes would be waaaaay too much.

Tie Back Black Dress


Speaking of little black dresses, here's a nice one that doesn't break the bank. It's a great material and flattering on almost anyone. Pair it with some fun tights! Get it on sale for $25 at Old Navy.

Sequin Purse


Ready to rock the little black dress this holidays? Jazz it up with some small but flashy accessories, like this sequin purse! It comes in silver, black, gold and green and costs just $17 at the Gap.

Opps I Did It Again


Just when you thought Britney Spears was ditching her white trash image, Paris comes along and screws it all up. Why can't she hang out with a good influence Natalie Portman? Hell, even Kirstin Dunst would be better!

Gap Doggy Sweater


Looking for the perfect present for your pooch? Here's a cute turtle neck it will surely love (or flop over and refuse to move in)! Though in a gross oversight Gap does not have a matching one for you, you can get it at Gap for just $30.

Glass Bubble Necklace


This necklace is so delicate and light looking, perfect for when you get bored of your pearls! The unique shape is fabulous, it looks like an accent for a couture runway show. Yet it's the very afforable price of $188 at dejarnette!

It's a bra! It's a bag!


Lingerie manufacturer Triumph International Japan has unveiled a new type of brassiere that can be converted into a shopping bag. Called the “No! Shopping Bag Bra” (NO! reji-bukuro bra), the environmentally-friendly lingerie is designed to promote the reduction of plastic bag consumption, a key objective of the revised Containers and Packaging Recycling Law hammered out by Japanese lawmakers in June.

Each year, Japanese shoppers receive an estimated 30 billion plastic shopping bags, which, in terms of the oil resources needed to produce them, amounts to two giant tankers full of oil (millions of barrels). About 30% of these bags are thrown away without being reused, and since the consumption of plastic shopping bags contributes to environmental problems such as increased energy usage, trash buildup, and global warming due to CO2 released in the garbage incineration process, there are urgent calls to reduce their usage.

When the bra is being worn, the “shopping bag” portions are folded away inside the bra cups, where they serve as extra padding. The bra quickly converts to a shopping bag by removing the bag portions from the cups and connecting the hooks on the bra’s underwire. The lace cups serve as decoration along with the shoulder straps, which are disconnected and tied to the top of the bag as ribbons.

The bra — available in red, blue, green, yellow and pink — is made from the Teijin Group’s ECOPET brand of polyester fiber, which has been recycled from plastic bottles through the company’s patented EcoCircle recycling system.

Triumph International Japan has a long history of developing eco-themed bras, with such creations as the Recycle PET Bra (1997), Eco-globe Bra (2004) and Warm Biz Bra (2005).

Check out these stunning collars, the ultimate chic way to keep your neck warm this winter! Unfortunately the red one is sold out, but there are other colors, yellow, gray, purple. Check out The Candy Thief's store on Etsy and get one of these for just $37.

You may have seen this dress at ShopBop, but I just found it for $80 ($308) off at StandardStyle! ShopBop's red and black version is still cheaper but I really love the brown and turqoise one. Should I buy this for my office holiday party??

UPDATE: I bought this dress and it is FABULOUS! If you're thinking about it, I highly recommend getting it!

Iky Clothing

So I went to a fashion line release party on Friday and had a very un-fasshonaburu moment of being carried out of the club. I'm told as one gets older you can't mix champagne with other types of alcohol... I will have to agree. Anyway, the clothes are very casual and not to my taste (reminds me of FUBU), but here's the website if you want to check it out yourself: Iky Clothing

Kate Spade Sample Sale

Ahh, just before the holidays too. Pretend you're in NY and get some fabulous Kate Spade finds online! Your friends will be shocked at how much you spent and it can be our little secret. Up to 70% off and running now until the 17th.

Like Visual Search

This is a great concept that still needs some time to grow. But basically, you can search for bags, shoes, jewelry/watches by keyword, category or by an image. Thing is, you can't yet supply your own image, you have to choose one that the website provides. They do have good images though, all celebrities and their fabulous accesories. But you can only search through stuff 3rd party sellers have agreed to place on their site. Again, a decent amount of options, but I'd still like to see more. But check it out at www.like.com.

CoCo Tee

Dream Of Juicy

Since this fasshonaburu is home sick today, she's wishing she had some trendy loungewear, in case someone stops by with soup. Here's a comfy, cute outfit from eLuxury for $118. And the start of a new category, loungewear!

After recently posting about a very unique and fabulous dress, I decided I need to know more about the designer.

Menswear Wide Leg Overall


Sometimes I have trouble finding unique and interesting pants to post about, mainly because if they're too different then they tend to look rediculous. Today I realized that I haven't posted any overalls and that's basically the only reason I'm posting these pants. They are cute though, not the 8-year-old feel that I get from most overalls. Get them at Urban Outfitters (online only) for $78.

STYLEistics Event

Oh goody, another fashion event in DC!

Recycled Sweater

This sweater is just too adorable, very indie rock in my opinion. Made out of recycled sweaters, it has tons of details, lace at the neck, a pocket on the back, buttons up a sleeve... just a very unique piece! It reminds me of Custo Barcelona, but is a lot cheaper - get it at Mod To Modern for $138.
