Our friends over at iStep put us onto the buzz circulating about the biggest national step competition to ever be hosted, The Sprite Step Off.

There are days when you want to show your organizational pride in a subtle manner and a pin won’t do it. Opt for a fashionable timepiece instead. Wristwatches can be an understated accessory by day and the key to your ensemble by night. Leave the utilitarian stainless steel band behind and put on a more expressive watch instead. Do remember to keep everything in proportion. Larger pieces are intended for the weekend and larger body frames, so make your acquisitions accordingly.

15th Anniversary Giant Baby Milo Plush Toy by A Bathing Ape. Honestly, this is just ill. Black & Gold Members, make it an addition to the collection of apes.
Wool Overcoat by Burberry. If there was ever an investment to be made, Sigmas…this would be the one.
