SkinnyShirt. If you love the classic look of a collared shirt under a sweater but you’re not a fan of feeling uncomfortably bulky, you’re going to be thrilled with Julie Kalimian’s creation, dubbed the SkinnyShirt. This ingenious shirt has a stretchy, knit body paired with a woven cotton collar. From the neckline up, the shirt appears to be a classic button-front collared shirt. But below the neckline, it’s all about comfort. Imagine your favorite stretchy, comfy camisole -- that’s how the SkinnyShirt feels. In fact, that’s just how Julie came up with the first prototype for the SkinnyShirt. She asked her local tailor to merge one of her collared shirts and a camisole.

Keys to My Castle. Michele Lilley loved to discover antique keys when she’d go treasure hunting with her grandmother at estate sales and auctions. She used to wonder why modern keys are so plain compared to yesterday’s beautifully ornate keys. Now, instead of wondering, Michele is creating tricked-out keys with designs that range from vintage classics such as fleur-de-lis and crowns to contemporary icons such as baseballs and flip flops. Add personality to your own key chain or give as a unique gift idea -- think housewarming gift! (Starting at $24.95) Buy Keys to My Castle here.

Each hood is made of faux fur, and you can choose your species: grey wolf, snow leopard, fire wolf, black wolf, grizzly bear or the nighthawk. Buy Spirit Hoods furry animal hats for adults here.Who’s wearing these, you might wonder? Jules spotted animal hoods being worn all over the streets of New York.
