Wear: Spiral Hair Ties

I was staying with my mom and I needed to steal one of her hair ties. She gave me one of these spiral ones, and I was skeptical to say the least. Now I'm back at home and that one hair tie is the one I keep grabbing, even though I have a million other (non-sprial) ones. The one I have is brown fabric, and try as I might I could not find fabric ones to link to, only plastic. Oh, and I learned that they're calling these "phone cord hair ties" which makes perfect sense to me, an old, but do like, teens know that this is what a phone cord looks like? If they even have a landline, would they have a corded phone? Anyway, you can buy a version of these in all kinds of stores ranging from Nordstrom to Target

Watch: The Meg

I saw The Meg last week and I have to say, not since Pacific Rim has a movie so clearly known what it is and delivered exactly that. The Meg isn't going to amaze you, and it may not even be worthwhile for you to see it in the theater, but if you want to see a giant shark terrorize people, this is exactly what you're looking for. Other great things about The Meg: Jason Statham wears chunky sweaters that make him look like a sexy lighthouse keeper, the movie is set off the coast of China, which means that there is a huge Asian cast (albeit mostly extras), Li Bingbing plays a badass lady scientist who is gung ho about research AND adventure, of course Jason Statham falls in love with her. Also, giant sharks. 

Want: Leopard Print Wrap Dress

When I got the latest Anthropologie catalog I (obviously) zeroed in on this leopard wrap dress. There were a few issues with my immediate infatuation with this dress. First of all, they style it in the catalog over pants, so it's ability to function as a dress was already in question. Second, I already own one leopard wrap dress. A scenario wherein a person needs two leopard wrap dresses seems... improbable. My other dress, though, is vintage and made from the most man-made of 70s materials. Just about any dress would be nicer. THIRD, I have seen this dress in person, in a size large, and it looks miniscule. I didn't try it on - I didn't have time and I don't buy full price at Anthro - but I doubt it would fit me, a size 8. There are numerous reasons why I should forget about this dress. But I can't. It calls to me.
