The punk in pink look is effortless and so fun! With only a few pieces, throw it together and turn heads wherever you go.

This Aztec print from Motel Rocks comes in a body-con dress, a crop top and a skirt in case you fell in love with the print like us!

This cutout play-suit is accessorized with a bright shoulder bag like this one from Gypsy Warrior and these Dr Martens Hincky Acid Pink Smiley 8 Eye Boots which are just insanely cool! We def think they should be paired with the leather leggings too!

THE SCENE
Get Carrie-d away with SJP!

Sarah Jessica Parker played an iconic NYC fashionista on Sex and the City, inspiring us to dress fabulously like it's our job! The best news came with the launch of SJP's own shoe line! The SJP collection has a fitting name - SJP!

SJP was already photographed opening the store on Wednesday and we are so excited!


“This vision felt like a mere dream five weeks ago,” said Parker to WWD's Footwear News earlier this week. “The best part is having Nordstrom be enthusiastic about this particular brand and collection.”

Rakuten.com Shopping Brings Shopping (& St. Patty's Day) to Another Level

Last week, Joonbug had the pleasure of learning all about the newly rebranded Rakuten.com Shopping, one of the world's largest e-commerce marketplaces. The Japan-based business focuses on making products from small businesses and local merchants available to the masses. Rakuten was so successful in Japan that they have decided to open up shop in the United States as Rakuten.com Shopping (formerly Buy.com). It differs from other similar sites such as eBay and Amazon in that instead of focusing on the lowest prices, it focuses on the quality of the product. Roger Andelin, President and CTO comments: "Rakuten.com Shopping is for the online shopper who expects quality over quantity and enjoyable shopping experiences over ambiguous transactions. We are very excited about raising the bar for online shopping and continuously improving to meet the modern shopper’s wants and needs."

STRANGER THAN FICTION
Shopaholic Bear Can't Get Enough of Sears Appliances

We all know bears love refrigerators (ya know, for the food) so it shouldn't have been much of a surprise when a 1-year-old 125-pound female black bear showed up at a Sears in Pittsburgh to do a little shopping. According to the Tribune Review, patrons spotted the bear in the parking lot around 8:30pm and started chasing it around with their cars said witness, Mark Marcinik, who was outside at the time.

(Come on people, how would you like to be chased around on your way to the mall?)
