Hip flask

Hip flask



All of your friends can attest to your drunken douchebaggery; you might as well just own it. The Slang Flask ($18) from Urban Outfitters (11 JFK Street, Cambridge, 617.864.0070) says it all. A classic stainlesssteel booze vessel, it comes with “Douchebag,” “Bitch,” or “Asshole” stamped on the front — your choice. Or collect all three for whatever mood strikes your fancy. These make excellent bridal party gifts, but only if you’re positive that your men/maids of honor have a sense of humor ... and that nobody is primed to punch you in the babymaker, Bridezilla.

Miriam Moser, chef and barista

We spotted her at Shecky’s Girls Night Out at the BCA.
She had us stopped in our tracks because her colors were just eye-catching enough to stand out in a crowd without careening into obnoxious.
She put together her look with a skirt and a shirt from Gap, H&M tights, a belt and shoes from Banana Republic, a scarf and a hair accessory bought in England, and a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag.
She describes her style as minimalist with a touch of floral.
Her favorite Boston shopping haunts: Suneri, French Connection, and secondhand stores on Newbury Street
Her best deal of the sale season: red suede shoes from French Connection marked down from $180 to $30

Speakers Of The House

Bring whimsy to your sound system with giant ear buds

So you downsized your iTunes library, whittling your collection to the songs you’re actually going to listen to. (Or wouldn’t be embarrassed to have pop up when you hit the “shuffle” option. Sorry, all you boy bands — you’re gone but not forgotten.) But what about those teensy ear buds that barely fit inside your ears? Those might just need an upgrade. The giant ear bud speakers ($40) connect to your iPod, computer, or home audio system (evidently, people still have those) through the regular headphone jack, and they can be powered by batteries, USB, or just plugged into an outlet. “Giant” is a relative term — these speakers are only about three inches in diameter. But next to your original ear buds, they’re larger than life. The onl
