Good Enough to Eat: Wrap Your Baby in a Tortilla Swaddle Blankie

Baby Tortilla

Though I’m no parent, I’m sure a major concern during the winter season is making sure your baby is warm enough. So what better way to do that foodie style than to wrap your infant up in a tortilla to keep the heat. After all, no one likes a cold burrito.

Made with 50% polymer and 50% cotton, the 40-inch swaddle comes with a matching knot hat. So definitely not edible. The swaddle and hat combo comes in “flour” color. It even comes in a bag similar to the tortilla packages they sell in stores, complete with a 4-step recipe on how to wrap your burrito baby. Just made sure to hold the rice and beans.

Roscoe’s Drops First Collab in Almost 40 Years with Custom Leather Hats and Waffle Shirt

Roscoes_PopularDemand1

Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles, considered one of L.A.’s most treasured institutions, has been slinging fried goodness for the past four decades to both natives and eager visitors alike. Since opening its doors in 1975, this soul food chain has kept it consistent, forever with a line out the door on the weekends and a cult following who won’t hear it if you try to speak sideways about this joint. It’s comfort, it’s classic, and some might even call it a piece of home.

Roscoes_PopularDemand2

For the first time in nearly 40 years, Roscoe’s has dropped a limited-edition collaboration with Los Angeles-based clothing brand Popular Demand. With only 100 sets available in this capsule collection, there was no time to think twice about getting your hands on this coveted red box, packed with a Roscoe’s x Popular Demand waffle flag t-shirt, leather brim snapback and a keepsake bottle of Roscoe’s maple syrup. To sweeten the design just a bit more, the creative team at Popular Demand used actual images of Roscoe’s waffles for the tee, making it a drool-worthy piece.

Fried chicken lovers of the world were quick to polish off those wings and scoop this baby up! As excited as we were that now anyone in the world had a chance to own a little piece of Roscoe’s, snatching up this rare collab will now be quite the challenge as in only 1 day, it sold out. Guess we’ll just have to hit play on Notorious B.I.G.’s “Going Back to Cali” and start refreshing our ebay search.

Coca-Cola Releases 200-Piece Vintage Clothing Line and It’s Awesome

coke-clothing

It’s finally happened.  In its quest for world domination, Coca-Cola released a 200-piece clothing line by the vintage designer DRx, also known as Dr. Romanelli. Inspired by clothing from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s that DRx found in thrift and vintage stores around the world, these individual pieces are actually stitched together from old Coke-branded clothing. 

 T-shirts and lots and lots of bomber jackets round out the collection. Unfortunately these brand-stamped clothes might break the bank, with jackets costing over a thousand dollars and shirts ranging from $35 to $50. The line will hit select stores in cities around the world including New York, Paris, Los Angeles, and Hong Kong. And while this isn’t Coke’s first collaboration with a designer (past partnerships include Uniqlo, D&G and Marc Jacobs), it’s certainly their first vintage approach.

Would you spend the big bucks for some re-imagined vintage Coca-Cola clothing? Let us know in the comments below!

Sailor Moon Bibs for Adults Let You Cosplay at the Dinner Table

sailor-moon-bibs

There are some things I can live without. Deep Fried Soup? I can live without it. Hot Ginger in a Can? Nope, don’t need it. Bacon Doritos? Ugh, well I guess it isn’t a life essential…

But Sailor Moon Bibs?! This is one thing I cannot compromise on. Japan is once again taking on the role of big fat tease and offering adult-size, Sailor Moon-themed bibs. The bibs were spotted by RocketNews24 at that the flagship Isetan department store in Shinjuku, Tokyo, which is also selling other Sailor Moon merchandise, such as socks fashioned after the knee-high sailor boots.

sailor-moon-merch

For those die-hard fans who collected the shiny, glittertastic cards and begged their parents to let you dress up as your favorite Sailor Scout for Halloween, this is big news. The bibs are available in five different designs, one for each of the series’ OGs (Sailor Moon, Sailor Mercury, Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter, Sailor Venus).

sailor-moon-bib-japan

Unfortunately, they’re only available in Japan until Isetan stops selling them on September 24 and will run you 1,575 yen (US $15.75) each. They’re also made of paper, meaning one bib is good for only one meal, so don’t try throwing them in the wash.

Like I said, I’m not comprising on this novelty swag. See you in Shinjuku, folks!

Project ‘Subway’ Outfits Models in Napkins and Sandwich Bags

Fashion Project SUBWAY

New York Fashion Week wasn’t just for the top designers and tourists. Subway took advantage of the week-long fashion bonanza to promote Subtember and the $5 dollar Footlong. How, you ask? By holding Project “Subway,” minus Heidi Klum.

In the name of “high fashion,” the sandwich chain had designers come up with eclectic looks featuring only items found in Subway stores. Napkins, sandwich bags, salad bowls and other “items” (like trash you find on the floor ) were transformed into couture creations. A panel of judges including Nastia Liukin and former Spice Girl Mel B, joined Jared (yes, you read that right) to determine the winning dress, which will be displayed in a Subway restaurant in midtown. The winner, Danilo Gabrielli, also received free Subway Footlongs for a year, you know, to help him stay fit for his next fashion show.

Mel B, Jared Fogle

I’ve got to admit that the designs are pretty stunning, once you get past the crinkly plastic and glaring shades of yellow and green. But what I want to know is why no one got really creative. Where are the deli meat dresses å la Lady Gaga? A lettuce hat? A garlic bread bustier? Now that, would have been a sight worth seeing.

Amy’s Baking Company Banks on Internet Notoriety, Sells ‘Go F**k Yourself’ Shirts and Hats

amy-baking-co-clothing

Most of you remember Amy and Samy Bouzaglo, the charming duo behind Amy’s Baking Company. Their, ahem, batshit personalities gained notoriety thanks to their infamous encounter with Gordon Ramsay on Kitchen Nightmares and epic Facebook meltdown, among other things.

Now, the Bouzaglos are cashing in on their internet infamy and selling shirts and hats based on the viral KN episode that caused Gordon Ramsay to walk off set. The announcement was made via Facebook and merchandise can be found on their website, featuring colloquial phrases such as, “Here’s Your Pizza, Go F**k Yourself” and “I Speak Feline Meow!”

The $25 hats and $30 shirts prove what we knew all along: Amy is an insane marketing genius who planned this burning train wreck so that she and Samy could eventually star in their own reality TV series and sell mediocre apparel that would be a starting point for a line of high-end cat nip and glitterized feline-friendly clothing. That, or, she’s just undeniably insane.

Real-Life Fat Pants Shrink & Expand to the Girth of Your Gut

Gluttony Pants

Fat pants. We’ve all got ’em. Whether yours come in the yoga variety or XXL sweatpants, all serve one universal purpose — to make serious feasting as painless as possible. But sometimes chowing down occasions call for more presentable clothing (like actual pants), which can be super uncomfortable when you’ve got a food baby brewing. Luckily, Betabrand’s Gluttony Pants are here to save the day.

These real-life fat pants are made for those who want to casually eat way too much food while maintaining a comfortable waistline situation. Basically, the trousers have three different buttons, each to expand or shrink (mostly expand) to fit the girth of our gut. The buttons even have charming names– Piglet, Sow and Boar, AKA normal, a little full and borderline gross.

Gluttony Pants

The best part? Betabrand’s creation takes the shame out of gluttony. Seriously, it’s impossible to remain on the Piglet button when things like bacon-wrapped mac & cheese meatloaf exists.

Gluttony Pants, $100 @Betabrand

The Pizza Scarf Keeps Your Neck Warm & Greasy, Kinda

pizza-scarf-11

It wouldn’t surprise us if you’re disappointed by the fact that this is a scarf posing as a pizza rather than an enormous scarf-shaped slice of pizza. We get it, we really do. But once you’ve gotten over that initial urge to sink your teeth into a stranger’s neckwear, you’ll realize that this pizza scarf by Raspberries and Rum is actually perfect for the following reasons:

1. It’s an ethically sound and fashion-forward alternative to Lady Gaga’s meat dress.

2. Nothing says “love me” like “I have just wrapped your favorite food around my throat,” so it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day.

3. Everyone who sees you will immediately know what it feels like to be a vampire.

4. It’s a pizza scarf.

The whole food-as-fashion thing is still relatively new, so there’s no dress code to explicitly forbid you from wearing this anywhere. Your boss will appreciate you showcasing the pizza scarf’s versatility just as much as your spouse will when you wear it on your wedding day, and seventy bucks seems pretty cheap for a garment you can wear literally everywhere. The only downside is that it’ll make you hungry and then refuse to nourish you, but hey, not everything can be as perfect as a real slice of pizza.
