Friend Eric Heins of Corter Leather has been designing and hand crafting leather goods and accessories for a while now and is well know in the market for his work. Over the years he’s gained quite the reputation for consistently producing a durable and dependable product. That being said, it’s no wonder that the day he launched a Kicktstarter project for his new ingenious design, it was fully funded beyond the project goal in less than 10 hours. The Bottle Hook is pretty innovative – bottle opener and useful hook in one. A key ring allows you to hook your keys onto it and a leather tab with embossed “If found, contact _____” makes it fool proof for those of us who tend to misplace things (raises hand). I’m looking forward to these being produced and picking up several for family and friends.
Elizabeth Taylor tanned and gorgeous as Catherine Holly in Suddenly, Last Summer pretty much sums up what summer beauty should be. Although the movie is far from beachy fun, it’s a great one to gather summer style inspiration from. I am obsessed with the stunning green dress she wears in the film and it’s become my mission to find one similar to it* with the fitted bodice and A-line skirt. It’s very reminiscent of Louis Vuitton’s Fall and Winter 2010 collection. Her accessories are minimal with simple silver bangles and hoops, no fuss hair or wrapped with a light scarf, and a glowing complexion. She’s an absolute knockout. You also have to give to Elizabeth credit for proving that a one-piece can be as (or more) sexy than a bikini.
