La Feria: New Fab Fashion Finds!

  If you’ve been browsing around the Object Mythology site lately – you have, haven’t you? – you’ve seen the new La Feria line. I know, you don’t even have to say it: It’s awesome. The collection is incredibly diverse, and that makes it so much fun to look through. I cannot even imagine how […]

Who We Help And Why We Do It

One of my favorite authors of all time, Ralph Waldo Emerson, once said, “It is one of the beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.” I’ve seen the quote in a few different forms around the Internet, of course, as there’s nothing like the web for […]

Vintage is The New Retro: Chic Jewelry For That Unique Finishing Touch

For a while now, we’ve seen the retro trends come and go in both fashion and home décor.

I admit I’m in love with my iPhone. It’s a problem, I realize. I also realize I’m not alone.

Technology has hooked up […]

Snuggle Up With Baby Alpaca Scarves and Throws!

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of that favorite scarf around your neck, keeping you cozy and warm while you’re wrapped in velvety softness (even on the train platform). Still, I just can’t think of a good excuse for wearing my Infinity Scarves in the house all evening once I’m home and in my pajamas, […]
