Who says that the fellas get to have all the fun? Cufflinksman introduces a select line of cufflinks for women that will remind consumers that it is good to be a girl! Adorable and stylish accents in motifs that will register with the female population; ladies cufflinks present the option to accessorize and accent business casual and formal attire, adorning each cuff with a hint of sophistication.
Some of the women’s cufflinks available include the timeless sex-symbol: the black stiletto heel. These Black High Hill Shoe Cufflinks for women are graced with the same convenient wear that the men are accustomed to with torpedo-style closure and handcrafted Silver-plated Rhodium finish. The black liqueur of each tiny shoe glimmers against the high-sheen of the polished silver setting. Tiny sparkling crystals accentuate each heel, exuding glamor and a vintage style to the world.
The Red Glass Shoes Cufflinks are an exemplary pair of unique ladies cufflinks that will add just a touch of ruby red to the cuff, seamlessly accenting apparel for any occasion or event. The torpedo-style backing is securely attached to each silver filigree shoe, with insoles accented in glossy red enamel. These women’s cufflinks are delicate and detailed, perfect for the wearer who is new to accessorizing or who wants to make a fun and sassy impression.
Some ladies cufflinks are also a popular favorite among the men also. Take for instance the vintage-styled Pin Up Girl Cufflinks from Cufflinksman. The silver plated silhouette of the curvacious bombshell will delight and engage, while sparking confidence and swagger in the men and women wearing them. The popular bullet-style back secures during wear, keeping each cufflink intact and in place.
What You Should Never Brag About in Front of Women
Your hunting skills, i.e. how you shot down a deer from a 50 ft range, etc: The idea of dead animals just gives women the creeps and killing innocent little forest runners for the ‘sport’ of it is not only horrifying, but also a big turn off. Leave your ‘gun’ and ‘bambi’ conversation (and pictures!) at the door.
Your fighting skills: True, women love a protector in a partner, someone who will stick up for them in the face of danger, but that does not mean how many guys you’ve drunkenly battled with at bars, how many ‘asses’ you’ve kicked, and how great your upper cut is.
The size of your manhood: Because everyone knows it’s all about how you “carry” yourself, not how you talk about yourself. Don’t even TALK about it, just smirk and let them wonder.
What You Should Brag About in Front of Women
Your cooking skills: It diminishes the negative line of gender role exclusivity and shows that you are comfortable working in the kitchen. It also shows your love of sating/providing for others in new ways. Let’s face it, you don’t go out to hunt for food anymore (as a society, we’re passed that, at least in certain ways), so why not tackle that chicken in the kitchen, sauté it in your grandmother’s sauce, and don’t forget the garnishes.
Your strong magic fingers (for massage purposes of course!): It will implant the idea of skin/touching/feeling in her mind, which inevitably leads to other strains of thought. Plus it’s always a ‘plus’ when you can administer a great massage with your strong hands.
Your grandmother: It shows that you appreciate the women in your life and honor their presence, even if they are no longer around. It shows respect, reverence, and an ultra sweet side that women love to witness. Plus women get all warm inside when you discuss other your admiration for your old grannie, and for bonus points, how much you love your precious little niece can also be thrown into the mix.

…Fall Stuff We Love
Etro, Gucci, and Raf Simons
Keane Etro heads from Italy to the deserts of the American southwest. Our favorite looks include a gutsy tweed suit with a Navajo-inspired patterned turtleneck and a tan trench that looked classic but with true Etro swagger!—Jim Moore, GQ creative director
Frida Giannini rolls out one of her very best collections for Gucci, seemingly inspired by English dandies, American rockers, and Italian gentlemen. There are so many covetable things in this collection, especially the sherpa-lined wool jean jacket, the plaid suit, the shiny wool double-breasted suit, the over-scaled DB topcoat, and a deep green trim-fit handknit cable sweater.—Jim Moore, GQ creative director
And finally, this Raf Simons Fall 2012 collection is a bold nod to the old English charm, mixed with oversized colors and cables, makes for a perfect fall look.
Pair this trendy look with designer Aymara’s Circle Fields of Gold Cufflinks, made from real peruvian butterfly wings. Spread your support and love of our eco-system and butterfly sanctuaries by purchasing any one of these Aymara pieces and we’ll donate 10% of the sale to the Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Garden.
GQ says, “Who wore the pants this season? Nobody at Raf. They wore shorts. Yes, shorts in the Fall, trouser shorts that is. Didn’t matter if a double-breasted suit, a trim cerulean pea coat, or a nubby chartreuse sweater was up top. It was less British school boy and more 80s cool kid thanks to slouchier tailoring; shots of deep color; and eyes obstructed by bucket hats and slicked-forward hair straight from the New Wave era. Sure, the whole bare-ankle thing wasn’t practical, but it made one hell of an impression.
So it’s already Tuesday and you suddenly realize that you have…$40 to your name. How can you go out, enjoy yourself for a whole day, whilst only using $20? (The other $20 will be used “in case of emergency” kind of thing, because, responsible people do those kinds of things).
How to Live on $20 a Day
What you’ll need:
An Open Mind
And of course, $20
Lunch specials are your friend. You know how you go to get sushi after 5pm and the hand rolls double in price? What about Thai food, like your favorite Pad Thai, goes from $7 at lunch time to $14.50 in the evening? Well guess what? It’s the same food. So take advantage of the “lunch time specials,” where you can get your favorite meal for under $10 usually. Favorite Lunch Meal: $7 (average) plus $3 tip= $10
Trip to the Metropolitian Museum of Art. Did you know there are centuries of art stored in this one musueum? Go! Take advantage! Wonder around for at least two hours, sit in front of at least ONE painting for at least FIVE minutes, meditate, and do not talk to anyone. You’re here for your “almost” free art and you need to get your $1 worth. Price based on Donations and today you’re really broke, so: $1
Two Cups of Coffee, one by yourself and then another with a friend. The good thing about Starbucks, other than their supposed humane ways of harvesting coffee, is that you can get a refill for only .50 cents. So that means get a Tall Coffee for $2.01, drink it alone while surfing the web/working/reading casually/soaking in surroundings/eavesdropping on conversations/ogling the barista/whatever you do when you drink your coffee kind of thing…and then keep the cup. Put it in your bag if you have to! Then after your trip to the museum, invite a friend for some more joe, and sit and chat out your experience of the art. Total Cost for Two Cups of Coffee: $2.51
Thrift Store Diving.The catch is, you can only spend $5. This can be used on old records, a thermos, a new backpack, three orange tee shirts, and more. Think creatively–how far can you stretch your $5? Total Cost for Something Unique/Strange/Wonderful: $5.
Watch an outdoor game. Look up on your trusty iphone any local games in your area. Even if they’re little league kind of games, go to the bleachers and root for your favorite color! (Will it be the purple team or the yellow?). No, we’re not saying be that creepy guy in the stands watching 5-year-olds play tee ball, but find a high school game somewhere, an advanced baseball league for teens, and watch them show you up with their stellar curve ball. Free Outdoor Game: $0 (Free!)
After you’ve been watching people younger than you own the court/field/park, maybe it’s time to do some exercise of your own. After all, you have had two cups of coffee…so you’re kind of pumped, right? Good. Now get to your nearest park with a view and do something creatively fun that you’ve never done before. This could be mixed martial arts, yoga, running (!), jogging, total body workouts in the grass…but make sure you get a bottle of water while you’re there. We don’t want you passing out from dehydration now. Exercise in the Park + Bottle of Water+ a post-work out hot dog with sauerkraut: $3.50
Okay, so if you have any sense in math, you’ll realize we’ve gone over budget by $2. Oh well! Eliminate the hotdog if you want, but we promise you’ll have a complete, pre-fall “self indulgent” day for only $20.
