This summer get a pair of Stash Sandals from Reef. Just like the name, you can stash cash, credit cards, and keys among other things in a pullout drawer located in the sole of the sandal. The compartment is large enough to hold a credit card, a key or two, and some cash. Not too shabby! I’ve been waiting for a shoe manufacturer to do the same so I can stash some emergency cash in my sole in case things ever go bad while traveling abroad.

I’m not a huge sneakers addict, but I have to admit the Apple Logo Shoes make me drool. These awesome shoes were distributed by the company to their employees in the mid 90′s. No need to say that these are the ultimate collector sneakers. They should make a Microsoft version to step in dog poo.
A fellow blogger named Lora poked fun at Juicy Couture by creating the ultimate Internet geek pants.

Anne Gericke is a German jeweler. Her jewelery is manufactured from either silver 925 or Palladium White Gold 750 and each piece is hand finished with care. The little windows are made of acrylic glass but some of the colors are also available in sapphire glass.

Now you can easily move handsfree around a darkened house and efficiently reduce the risk of tripping over objects or running into doors, furniture or anything not easily seen in the dark.
Anyone who tells you romance is dead is wrong (and bitter, and likely to die alone). As evidence, here’s the Sarah Clock. Designer Jim Doan named this beautiful, graceful piece after his fiancÃ©e, just as he named his company after her. And what a compliment: with its flexible graphite stem and unmistakably botanical appearance, the Sarah Clock is like the one perfect flower that puts any bouquet to shame. Plus, it tells time. Let’s just hope the designer’s girlfriend won’t dump him anytime soon.
