ban.doI saw this hair accessory company on another blog, Oh Joy!, and I thought I'd share it with you guys. They make some pretty incredible pieces. In general, I think they are over priced, but you can get some great ideas from Ban.Do. Ban.Do was started by two California stylists, Jen and Jamie. They began creating one-of-a-kind, vintage pieces, but now that they've become more popular their accessories are "vintage inspired." Check 'em out! Got any favorites? Too much for you?

I love the leather and chain necklaces and the chain belt!

Kate Spade, Tory Burch and Diane Von Furstenberg are some of the designers that have lead the charge with vibrant colors and geometrical shapes. Well, I've finally embraced it myself and created a collage of fun finds to prove it.

Starbucks the new fashion accessory?

dsquared24Apparently, DSquared2 feels that Starbucks is a great fashion accessory for the catwalk. Starbucks + Fashion = Count me in! I must say I love the styling for this show. Having Starbucks in a model's hand is brilliant because it automatically sends the message that they are catering to the "every day woman."  Though having Starbucks every day is expensive (ahem...Ryan) and most of these outfits are for the every day rock star/bohemian/Californian... dsqaureddsquared2dsquared6dsquared7dsquared8dsquared23dsquared25dsquared29
