Bring it back to the classic look! Really, bring it back! In the age of the apple watch and everything touch screen, sometimes the sexiest thing we could all invest on is a classic gold, or silver, watch. The classic-er the better! YesMan watches have been on our wrist for a while, and we totally love them and we get a lot of compliments on them… Come one, what guy doesn’t want a nice arm candy that will do most of the flirting for him?!?! The YesMan guys have created a new line of watches that bling to site, in the best way possible. They’ve combined the classic gold and silver look with the even more classic face color, black or royal blue (Personal favorite GOLD & BLUE combo). These, take us back to the 70s Rolex era, where the shinny gold and the bright blue screamed uptown funk! Check out the gallery of looks below and if you like any, which you should, click here to purchase your very own YesMan Watch!

We’ve been counting down the days till the premier of ‘The Royals’ and it’s finally here… well tomorrow… but it’s finally here! During our wait, we stole Merritt Patterson from set to chat about the new E! scripted series. We wanted to talk the show, the scandals, the sex, and the cast! Not to mention the fact it’s premiering on Sunday March 15th after ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ and a month ago it was picked up for a second season! OH MY, right?! As we dish with the incredibly beautiful Merritt Patterson, we learn about her, her likes, the excitement about ‘The Royals’ and most importantly, what we all should expect from the new series! So, buckle up and get ready for an unreal extravagant ride Sundays on E! (10-11 p.m. ET)!
How does it feel to be on a show that has been picked up for a second season before the 1st season premiers?
Being picked up before the 1st season premiere (March 15th at 10pm) is INCREDIBLE! It shows how confident E! and Lionsgate are in the show! Since day one everyone involved has been really invested and excited about the project. It’s unlike anything out there. Feels very special and I feel so fortunate to be a part of it!
Introduce us to Ophelia:
Ophelia is the American “commoner” among British royalty. Her father is the King’s head of security. They live in the working quarters of the palace. She catches the eye of the Prince and finds herself quickly involved, much to the dismay of the Queen. Not one to shy away from things, Ophelia, voices her opinions and pushes back, which often leads to uncomfortable situations… Confident, curious and out of her element basically sums her up!
Describe your cast members/creator using one word:
Elizabeth Hurley –Fabulous
William Moseley – Passionate
Alexandra Park –Spirited
Mark Schwahn –Clever
Jake Maskall –Charming
Sophie Colquhoun –Effervescent
How do you define sexy? How would Ophelia define sexy?
To me sexy is being confident, kind and positive. Having a strong sense of self while being considerate to others and open-minded. I think Ophelia would agree. Although the Prince is struggling to know who he is and what he wants…
What is the sexiest:
Country-I’ve never been but the Maldives look incredibly sexy!
Royal scandal-Not very familiar with the real-life Royal family…
Celebrity-Brigitte Bardot circa 1960’s.
What should E! fans expect from the network’s first scripted series?
Lots of scandal, attitude and complications! The Royals is the perfect fit for E! What’s more enticing then watching royalty squander unlimited resources and abuse unlimited access?! The show also has a lot of heart. I think the audience will be thoroughly entertained and also be able to relate to the characters and situations.
Will there be an appearance from true British royalty?
Dame Joan Collins makes a grand entrance!
Though Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, isn’t American, are there any similarities between her and Ophelia?
Well I don’t know the Duchess of Cambridge personally but from my understanding she grew up in a regular family, experiencing normal everyday things like public school or grocery shopping. Ophelia comes from that world and see’s the Royals and their extravagance from an outsider’s perspective. I’m sure they could relate on some level.
What are your three simple luxuries?
Spending time with my family. Great coffee. Sunshine.
Mother monster has join the ultimate monster house. Today Lady Gaga announced that she will be joining the cast of the iconic American Horror Story. ‘American Horror Story – Hotel’ starts production in July and premiers in October… and that’s all we know so far folks! Except:
E! gives viewers an all access pass behind the velvet rope of the original celebrity family when “The Royals” premiering in March 2015. The Royals marks as E!’s first scripted original series bringing in a killer cast. For ten-episodes we’ll watch Elizabeth Hurley, Vincent Regan, William Moseley, Alexandra Park, Merritt Patterson, Jake Maskall, Ukweli Roach, Tom Austen, Sophie Colquhoun, and Oliver Milburn bring to life of fictional royalty to life.
Official synopsis: The price of power has never been higher, especially when your family is under a perpetual media microscope. Welcome to the life of a Royal – a family the world adores but a lifestyle that is forced upon few. The Royal family is helmed by the noble and ethical King Simon (Regan) who struggles to keep peace amongst his family while having the weight of the world on his shoulders. Standing statuesque and elegantly by his side is Queen Helena (Hurley) who has her own motives and intentions when it comes to the power she has married into. Simon and Helena have three children including the beloved Prince Robert, the free-spirited Prince Liam (Moseley), and the controversial and rebellious Princess Eleanor (Park). The cynical and mischievous Cyrus (Maskall), brother of King Simon, lurks throughout the illustrious palace awaiting a chance to take a seat on the throne. Entrusted with the responsibility of protecting the family’s safety and secrets, but sometimes adding to them, are Eleanor’s new bodyguard Jasper (Austen), Prince Liam’s bodyguard Marcus (Roach), and Ted (Milburn), who is head of the Royal security detail. Ted has attempted to maneuver his career to keep his professional and personal life separate, however when Liam falls for Ted’s daughter Ophelia (Patterson), the lines between love and duty get blurred. Relationships become even more complicated when a blast from the past saunters through the Beefeaters’ posts in the form of the sexy and snobbish socialite Gemma (Colquhoun), Liam’s ex-lover. In a world of opulence driven by power, your next of kin may be your next worst enemy. All is fair in love and royalty.
The Royals will premiere on E! in March 2015.

We’ve been HUGE fans of DOPE COUTURE for a long time and not just because these boys originated from our home state of Indiana. They have crafted an art for perfectly twisting luxury and street wear into must-have, mouth-drooling items. We first found their amazing tees a few years ago at got SOLE, a small specialty store in Indianapolis. Now they have two stores, Bloomington(Indiana) and Los Angeles, and DJ’s and musicians across the country are proudly wearing their tees. We personally love their stuff because we believe they have fine-tuned the art of luxury for everyone and encompassed the belief of unexpected luxury into every thread!
As lovers of true luxury, we are always fascinated by the finest watch, the finest suit…even the finest tee shirt. Yes, there is no greater luxury than jumping out of bed to go get coffee on a Sunday morning and grabbing a pair of jeans from the night before and throwing on your favorite tee. For most of us, we would be more upset if a tee shirt we got while scuba diving in Grand Cayman was torn than if we lost our most expensive tie. True tee shirt lovers would look at the torn fabric as character and wear it proudly.
In our ever devoted mission of of a life of true luxury, we are going to host The Art of TEE…our daily pick in the search for great tee shirts. We will pick these from random stores, online sites, stuff fans send us and even our own closets.
We thought it was only fitting our first tee shirt be our very own raannt I Made The Sexy List tee!(Yes folks, these little buddies are for sale!).
We look forward to surprising you with our picks of the day. If you have a tee-shirt you’d like to send us, contact us on our contact page!
Be Yourself. Be Fearless. Be Your Own Unexpected Luxury!
Slamming her locker she looked at the words outlined in red, permanent marker like blood from a fresh kill. She could feel the stares from the other kids in the hallway and as tears crested the corners of her eyes, she hunched over, hands in her pockets and walked past her audience. They should yell “Dead Man Walking” she thought to herself. She walked down the main hallway, past the smirks and laughter which always tasted her back like the tongue of a vicious serpent.
Was she the words they called her? Was she really that bad? The only friend she had was someone she didn’t even really want to be friends with and even she didn’t like her that much. What had she ever done? She couldn’t even remember when it started, just some distant memory of that girl standing in the gym shouting, “Don’t pick her. We’ll lose if we have her!” Was it 4th grade? Maybe 5th? It didn’t matter. It still felt the same as that first time and even that girl haunted her wherever she went. Saddest of all was she wished she were that girl. Perfect hair and a perfect boyfriend. Everything…perfect.
Maybe even if she had parents who understood but how did you explain to your own parents that no one liked you. Especially when they were just as hard on you as everyone else. She shook her head before pushing the door open to walk outside into the sunshine, the school’s last bell ringing in her head like a million forevers. She crossed the street and walked onto the side street which would take her home. The final mile she liked to call it. It was the only place she felt truly safe. She pulled out her huge sunglasses which reminded her of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and put them on. They only cost her $2.99 but they made her feel glamorous. She pulled her iPod from her purse, put the earphones tightly in her ears and scrambled until she found the song she was looking for.
Turning around, she cocked her sunglasses and then put her hands on her hips.
Instantly she was on a runway in Paris strutting her shit as the crowd went crazy and her fans applauded. She walked to the end, stopped and gave her signature pouty lipped smile. She had shown them all. She wasn’t that bad after all. She was beautiful. She was amazing. She was gorgeous. She was fabulous.
Right…Left…Right…Left…she pranced back and forth on the same stretch of sidewalk until the song ended.
Finishing her runway walk, she turned the corner of her street walking tall. She could see her house in the distance. She stopped and started the song over again.
Maybe today wasn’t the day. Maybe she should wait. She might just prove them all wrong after all. Maybe one day…she’d even prove it to herself. Maybe. It might just be worth waiting around to find out. At least for another day…
Bullying is serious. Very serious. But so is your life! DO NOT give into the bully! Shove their nose in your success! Putting together days adds up to a lifetime. It’s worth waiting around to see what excitement is in store for you. Who knows. You might even end up being a supermodel!
Be yourself. Be unafraid…Be your own unexpected luxury!
Getting an in school suspension was not part of your plan. You just thought you’d skip your last class of the day and go and watch her run the mile for gym, since you heard her complaining about it at lunch. You weren’t sure what was more embarrassing; your mother having to be called when you’re a senior or the fact that the dean busted you on the bleachers right as she ran past you. Either way it meant you’d be spending all weekend at home and the entire day Monday in the Biology lab serving your detention. Your friend Evan drives you home and as you turn the corner onto your street you see the cream color of your brother’s truck which must mean he’s decided to come and stay for a couple of days giving you even less privacy. You grumpily stumble out of the car and head up the walk just as your mom and brother are walking out for dinner. “Grounded!” Your mother says as she walks past you.
You head upstairs and throw your bag on the floor and fall onto the bed. Turning on the tv you notice your mom has set your skateboard on your desk. The new deck, a Sean Cliver for Girl Skateboards Blacklight Series “Buddha Superstar”, glows like sea monkey’s in the dark of the room. Just as you roll over in frustration your phone rings. “Boy, you have to GOT toget here now!” Evan whispers into the phone. He explains that she’s at the skate park. “And she’s alone. She didn’t come with him. I think they might have broken up or something.” You hold the phone in your hand thinking about how much you miss her. How her hair smelled when you sat next to her in her car. How she’d smile at you right before she’d kiss you. “Give me 15 minutes.” You say and hang up the phone.
Looking at yourself in the mirror you realize there is no way you’re going to get her back looking the way you do. In fact, since she broke up with you, because you got drunk instead of hanging out with her, you’ve kind of let yourself go. She always said how she liked the way you dressed because you didn’t give a fuck and just wore what made you feel good.
You quickly get undressed and throw on your Spenglish “Juan Two Three” tee (Spenglish, $45) that she loved. You pull up your tight Nudie “Thin Finn Faded Black Black” jeans (Nudie, $199) and check yourself out in the mirror. Not bad. Not too shabby at all. But it’s not enough. Running your fingers through your hair you realize it’s greasy and you haven’t washed it in a couple of days.
You look over at your clock and realize you’ve already wasted 5 minutes. You head into the bathroom and pull the clippers out from underneath the sink. Plugging them in you look in the mirror. “Fuck it.” Five minutes later the six inches of hair surrounds your bare feet. Some pieces on your head are still longer than others, but who cares. You’re not a barber and you kind of like how it looks edgy anyway. But something is still missing. You stand there for a second and then get an idea. Walking into the guest bedroom you stand over your brother’s luggage as if you’ve found your hidden Christmas presents and don’t know if you should open them and seal them back or not. Quickly you unzip the biggest bag and look until you find exactly what you’re looking for. His brand new Gucci Washed Ostrich Biker jacket(Gucci, $11300)
You slip the jacket on carefully realizing how much it means to your brother. Standing in front of the mirror you realize it looks absolutely perfect. You’re sure you’ll be back before your mom and brother get back anyway so you’ll just slip it back in the suitcase and you’ll never get caught. You quickly grab you board and run out the door.
While running over to the skate park you think back on the first day you actually got up enough nerve to talk to her after having watched her from far away for a long time. You remember how your friends were pissed because you chose to sit and laugh with her all afternoon instead of skating. “Bros before hos, dude.” Afterwards she asked you to teach her to skate. You kissed her instead. But she became a pretty good skater…for a girl. And for the six months you were together saved up your money to buy her a board. She broke up with you before you ever got a chance to give it to her and the board still sat on the shelf in your closet.
When you finally reach the skate park you immediately sitting by herself with her back up against a tree. You throw down your board and skate over to Evan. “She’s been by herself the whole time. I’m telling you man, I think they broke up. She looks really sad.” You look over at her but she doesn’t look back. You take a deep breath and skate over to her. “Hey” You say. She looks up. “Hey.” She says back. You sit down next to her just as it starts raining. “So.” You say. “So.” She says. “Not skating today?” She asks, barely looking up. “Naw.” You say. You scratch your newly shaved head and some hairs falls in front of your face. You laugh. “I’ve missed you.” She says. You don’t say anything. You never were good with words. “It’s why we broke up. I told him I couldn’t be with him anymore because I was still in love with you.” You close your eyes and scream at yourself in your head. Don’t Cry! Don’t be a little bitch and start crying! But she’s already beat you to the punch. You stand up and reach for her hand. “Let’s get outta here.” You say. She takes your hand and stands up. She’s still crying. You reach into your pocket and grab the Sugar Factory “Hello Kitty” couture pop (Sugar Factory, $25) you bought her while at your brother’s wedding in Vegas.
She looks up and you make a face. She laughs. “Come on you asshole.” She says, pulling you with her across the field towards her car. About halfway there you stop. She turns around, confused, her hair slicked back in the pouring rain. You take off your brother’s leather jacket and put it around her shoulders. Lightly grabbing her by the back of her neck you pull her towards you. “I’ve missed you too.” You say, right before you kiss her.
“Wait!” She says. You open your eyes and look at her mysterious smirk. “I want your new board too.” She says, biting the corner of her lip. You look down and feel the rain wash down over the back of your neck as you fix your eyes on the key of her 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (Jeep, starts at $25545) thinking about all of the times the two of you made out in that car. Man, not the new board.
You think about all the nights you tried to say you were sorry but she wouldn’t talk to you. You think about all the times you walked past her house after school just to see if she was there. You think about all the times you had to watch her with him. Sometimes…life is in the risks. “Deal.” You say, smiling. She grabs you and kisses you hard.
And standing in the field, your lips meeting hers in the rainstorm, you realize how happy you are that you decided to break the rules and just say fuck it. Because even though your life is going to completely suck for the next few weeks, this moment is totally worth it. After all…this might have just been the greatest day of your life.
Be fearless. Be yourself. Be your own unexpected luxury!
