Classics, Revisited

A gift for Wild Things, Oprah’s new fave jeans and customized Keds

GO WILD:  Urban Outfitters is a proud partner of the new film Where The Wild Things Are.  But even if you haven’t experienced Spike Jonze’s interpretation of Maurice Sendak’s classic bedtime tale yet, you can pull on UO’s vintage-style v-neck movie tee to add a little inner child to your day.  Just $24 online or at area store locations, it’s also a great gift for the movie or monster-lover in your life.

SMART COOKIE:  Last week, Oprah turned us on to CJ by Cookie Johnson jeans.  Reimagined for a real woman’s curves by Mrs. Magic Johnson herself, this line of premium denim features subtle stretch and many up-to-the-minute styles.  ‘Grace’ bootcut, ‘Faith’ straight leg and ‘Love” boyfriend jeans, just to name a few, come in dark blue and gray rinses.  Available at Nordstrom, CJ jeans definitely fall into the “luxury” price category, ranging from $141 - $196 per pair.  But if O herself says they’re worth it, we’re all ears.

STEP TO IT:  When it comes to shoes that never go out of style, Keds always top the list.  Now you can put your own twist on these timeless kicks by designing a pair online with a little help from Zazzle.  Begin by choosing your size and style, then customize with colors, patterns and even personal photos.  Women’s ($60) and Kids’ ($50) styles are available now and Men’s are soon to come; click here to get started.  (Warning:  This create-your-own-shoe thing is addictive - budget at least an hour.  Maybe two.)
