Fly ties, sensational socks and dresses that match your favorite cocktail make the stylish list this Fashion Friday.
Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah – here’s the answer to unruly zippers that won’t stay up. The Kevel Fly Tie is a gizmo that makes sure the z ipper in any pants or skirt won’t unzip — unless you want it to. Perfect for men and women and mommies-to-be, these were created by a woman and retail for $9.99 to $16.99.
The fly tie attaches the zipper pull to the button above it. The website says it prevents “Zipper-gate.” Simple and beats the rubberband ideas we all used in maternity mode.
For the guys, especially since Father’s Day is just around the corner, we have socks that rocks. When you visit the website, blacksocks.com, you might think it would be a boring blend of blah- black socks.
Not. A. Chance.
This link will take you to socks that match themselves — I’m not sure who would care this much, but the site professes “The interaction between the socks with a communication button, the Sock Sorter and an iPhone app, makes sorting socks child’s play.” In the never-ending drone of “There’s and app for that,” here’s proof.
The best part of this site is the Funky socks button. These wildly colorful babies are $19.33 per pair. Of course there are deals like three pairs for $58, six pairs of socks for $100 — and you get free shipping.
I think I like it better than matching my drink to my dress.I never would have thought of coordinating my dress (or shoes) with my drink, but then again, what the heck? Dress mixology from Sexy dresses.com pairs drinks and dresses.
I realize that I like merlot and I do have merlot colored dresses. But no merlot-colored shoes. The shame of it all. I must go shopping.
