The Weekend Guide

norwegian wood maximum fringe!

Lucky No. 10, 10, 10.

Norwegian Wood Maximum Fringe

What: Equal parts ’70s hustler and marching band majorette, the handmade, multitiered fringe necklaces ($65) won’t weigh you down like similar beaded bib styles.
Why: Good posture, natch.
Where: Online at etsy.com.

Kate’s Paperie Calendar Animals

What: Pop-up forest and farm creatures ($28 for the set) — bunny, cow, bear, elk, goat, horse — printed with two-month calendars on each will keep you from dropping behind on your dates.
Why: It’s not too early to get started on 2011.
Where: Online at katespaperie.com.


What: Reusable and dishwasher-safe baggies ($5) make our dreams of mess-free vertical grilled cheese a reality. Insert ’wich, put bag in toaster, voila.
Why: Only you and your Toastabag can prevent toaster fires.
Where: Online at amazon.com.


What: We (as in America) have finally lured the British shopping giant and ultimate one-stop shop to cater specifically to our side of the pond.
Why: Give us your Loeffler Randall booties, your Miu Miu sunglasses, and your masses of going-out fall dresses yearning to be worn freely.
Where: Online at us.asos.com.

Ferm Living Pouf Poufs
Snag a few oversize, knitted cotton rope hacky sacks ($98) and never be stumped again by the seating sitch when too many guests come calling.
Why: Say Pouf Pouf ten times fast. Out loud.
Where: Online at huset-shop.com.
