One of Versace's newer bags, the Small Snap Out of It Bag, is simply adorable, as far as handbags go. The miniature duffle measures 9.75" x 7.5" and is 4.25" wide at base, but tapers up to the top zip closure. It is made of white patent leather and accented with mirrored studs and silver hardware. The logo plaque on the front of the bag has the image of Medusa on it. Inside, the bag is lined in satin and has several pockets. Price: $1,295.
Style and functionality come together easily in the Eames Managment Chair. Designed in 1958, when the word "ergonomic" was young and rarely used outside of research papers, its lightweight and body-hugging form was ahead of its time. The thin mesh backing is self-contouring and flexible, for "even weight distribution and long-term comfort." The mesh-backed chair is available in three colors, but the design is also available with other materials and in other colors at different price points. Price (for mesh): $1,188.
The Optimus Keyboard is a revolutionary piece of hardware - at least, it is for those whose top priority is making sure their computer peripherals will outshine everyone else's. Each of the key's on the 114-key keyboard has a 32x32 pixels full-color OLED display screen. The screens will display the QWERTY letters during normal functioning, but can be completely reprogrammed to suit the user's preferences. Downloadable themes will be available at some point in the future, as well. It is scheduled for release later this year and carries a price tag of $1,490.

It always makes the gossip blogs when a different celebrity gets their own wax figure at Madame Tussauds. Unless you're a celebrity, however, odds are that you're not likely to make it into the main collection any time soon. But that doesn't mean that you can't have your own likeness sculpted from wax, should you be interested in such a thing. You can order a custom Wax Figure from Madame Tussauds for only £150,000 ($291,000). The sculpture takes a team of twenty people 4 months to complete and the price includes all the sittings needed to obtain accurate measurements in the Madame Tussauds London studio.
The weather this winter has been extreme, shifting from hot to freezing in just days and either bucketing rain, sleet and snow or remaining dust-dry. Those of use with the hot, dry weather didn't have much use for umbrellas over the past couple of weeks, but spring could still bring some showers, right? The bright colors of Kate Spade's Copenhagen Classic Umbrella make it a perfect choice for keeping those warmish, gentle rains away, though it is substantial enough to hold off a downpour, as well. Price: $95.
