classy star wars ties

Actually, these Star Wars ties skip over classy and go straight for elegant.

The Imperial and Rebel logo designs are subtle, but they’re also handmade in Italy with 100% silk. Not surprisingly, they’re also pretty expensive a $54.99 each. But, BUT—you can also get an awesome BB-8 pin with a spinning base free with your purchase (all ThinkGeek Star Wars purchases over $30 qualify). Just use the code “BB8PIN” at checkout.

McCall’s has teamed up exclusively with Fashionably Geek to premiere the third wave of patterns in the Cosplay By McCall’s collection.

Two new patterns BELLE ROGUE and BELLE NOIR were developed in partnership with Ichigo Black, a designer known for her Japanese fashion inspired line of handmade clothing. Like all of her pieces, these new McCall’s patterns draw their inspiration from gothic, lolita and steampunk styles.

But wait until you check out the pics below. The patterns pop even more thanks to custom pieces from Extasia Jewelry, wigs from Arda Wigs, and some gorgeous DIY bridal bouquets (tutorials for the bouquets will be available soon).

dyson supersonic

Dyson has built a high-tech empire out of sucking and blowing air. So moving into the hair dryer space seems like a natural progression from vacuums, hand dryers and fans.

Enter the $400 Dyson Supersonic.

For such a “simple” device, Dyson put in an extraordinary amount of money and effort. Apparently, the process took four years, involved 103 engineers, 600 prototypes and a price tag of $71 million.

All that and I can’t even ride it around town on a stream of hot air.

However, the Supersonic was designed to be super light, super fast, and very quiet. With a price tag that clocks in at $400, it had damn well better leave my wife’s hair smooth and glossy—because she’s going to want this thing. She’ll point to how much I spend on frivolous gadgets and, well…that will be that.

The Supersonic will launch exclusively in the US at Sephora in September.

Check out the video below for more about the features.

The North Face has unveiled a new Access Pack backpack that features a cool rigid panel that opens up with a press of a button and stays open until you close it. It also features ejector tabs and handles that will give you quick access to items like phones, pens and laptops.

Naturally, the bag won’t come cheap at $235. That’s a steep price for a backpack, but it might be worth it for a useful bit of gear that you’ll probably use every day.

Check out the demo video below to see how the Access Pack works.

hooded dress

With this gorgeous hooded dress by rosemortem on Etsy, your entrance to any room might make you feel like a queen…or maybe a mysterious Red Woman with some serious secrets.

The Calista Hooded Dress drapes perfectly along the natural curves due to its exquisitely feminine bias cut; the neckline rests in a gentle V. The sleeves are fitted comfortably to the wrist, where the sleeves finish in pointed cuffs. The stunning train is the perfect accent to the elegantly draping hood, beautiful worn both up or down. And the fabric…though the design is available in solid stretch velvets as well, the crimson scrolling vines fabric shown makes this gown a glimmering vision of faerieworld magic.

Whether you’re out at the Renaissance faire or heading to a Game of Thrones-themed party, this dress will fit the occasion. 

Take a closer look below.
