December 1, 2010 § 6 Comments

November is over and the time has come to shave off your ‘stash, but that doesn’t mean you can’t show you’re love for this classic facial hair all year long. These 10 clever products allow you to continue enjoying that notorious upper lip adornment even if you’ve removed yours (or you just can’t grow one).

1. The Original Mustache Love, on light grey – 6 oz stainless steel flask $18 USD @ Whimsy and Ink The print on this flask will put a ‘stash on your face while whatever you’re drinking will put hair on your chest.

2. Car Stash $40 USD @ You and your car can match, need I say more?

5. Mood Mustaches $10 USD @ Switch up the colour to match your mood every day and let your mustache do the talking.

6. Original Identify A Stash – set of seven $7 USD @ How Nice A different one for every day of the week, groom your own ‘stash so you can match!

7. Toddland Curls For Girls Wallet $24 USD @ So when he’s paying for dinner, not only are you impressed by his good manners, but also his love of the well-groomed mustache.

8. Toddland Mustache Trunk $18 USD @ Confess your love of the ‘stash in a (slightly) more subtle way to your guy, maybe he’ll get the hint?

9. Mustache Bandages $7 USD @ Little known fact – mustaches have healing powers which have been harnessed into these bandages!

10. Mustache Mug $12 USD @ Multi-task by planning your daily ‘stash-style while enjoying a cup of joe each morning.

Or if you’ve just been loving you facial hair way to much to part with it this early, keep it looking groomed, clean and classic with Man’s Face Stuff Moustache Wax ($9 USD, in Gin and Tonic scent.

And don’t forget the true meaning on Movember, while mustaches are awesome in their own right, partnering them with a fundraiser to raise money for Prostate Cancer Research just adds to the cool factor. For more information on Movember in Canada, check out their official website: Movember Canada.

SPOTLIGHT: CarbonCopy @ Etsy

November 16, 2010 § 3 Comments

I heard about CarbonCopy through twitter and immediately went to check out the shop on Etsy. It’s full of carefully selected vintage finds, all in good condition and very reasonably priced – whether you’re shipping to the US or international. Also, you can always expect new stock, as the three girls who started it update their shop every Monday.

The great thing about vintage is that it’s so easy to incorporate it into your personal style. There was one item in particular that I could see seamlessly blending into my wardrobe. And being a student, it’s important for me to be able to have comfortable and fashionable shoes to slip on and run to class in. Here’s how I would wear CarbonCopy’s vintage find to class:

CRAVE: a school bag

Sophisticated Satchel in Cognac

image credits:

First semester might almost be over, but that doesn’t mean that I’m still not searching for the perfect school bag. I’m not a fan of wearing backpacks, so I’ve been looking for a nice side bag to stash my laptop, notebooks and everything else I lug to class. I thought that with the sophisticated lady trend rising, it would be easy to find the perfect side satchel for my needs. But although many structured bags are being made, not many are big enough to fit everything I need.

For a long time I was considering the Longchamp Le Tote, but the round, thin straps had me worried seeing as I carry some pretty heavy books around. I was thinking about the leather satchel from H&M too, but the $150 price tag just wasn’t an option considering I only work part-time.

I was so excited when I saw the new Kimchi Blue Sophisticated Satchel at Urban Outfitters. It has a nice, structured shape, a side strap and its big enough to fit all my junk. It’s on-trend wit the FW runway shows, but simple and classic enough in style to last me longer than just one season. And, at $68 USD, it’s definitely more affordable than the H&M and Longchamp versions.

Where Am I?
