I don't generally jump on the summer book bandwagon, so the furor over Fifty Shades of Grey is sort of bemusing to me. Honestly, just reading the synopsis of the ahem trilogy, makes me giggle. It sounds like the old paperback bodice rippers my mom used to read when I was little, only mixed with Wall Street or perhaps a touch of American Psycho. Seriously?
I know that even the most hardened souls can fall prey to beach reading and in deference to those folks, I present two excellent ways to accessorize what is, for better or worse, the book of Summer 2012.
#1: Shame on Jane's #LatersBaby Hashtag Necklace
#2: Bondage Accoutrements from MyPleasure
This Beginner Bondage Kit is a stylish– and safe!– way to experiment á la 50SoG. The redwrist and ankle cuffs are lined in soft, minky plush and feature heart-shaped D-rings to connect to each other or the nylon straps. The blindfold mask is made of leather and has kind of a blind Catwoman vibe. There's even a tiny fringed rubber riding crop to whip you into shape!
Are you a fan of the series? If not, are you planning on reading the books? Let me know what you think.
