A fun idea from Timothy Liles, a designer in Boston who is currently working at Converse. These rings are cast in washable crayons and come packaged in the basic eight crayon colors. Available at The Future Perfect for $50. When I was little, I would have loved coloring with these. I think I still would.

I'm going to a wedding reception today, so I thought this was fitting. This gorgeous calligraphy comes from Jenna Hein of Love, Jenna. How great would it be to receive a wedding invitation addressed to you that looked like this? Her lettering style is so sophisticated and fun at the same time.

Yellena James, an artist/illustrator in Portland, has an amazing style where she creates flowy, detailed environments and worlds. Her work has been described as "colorful arrangements of organic shapes and tangled lines (which) are at once floral and alien, organic and sci-fi, crafty and fantastic." Very inspiring. Purchase prints here: yellena.etsy.com.

Dress up packages with navaglow tape from Stella Bugbee. I love the idea. Receiving a package in the mail is already so fun and it would be even more fun with colorful packaging tape! Buy a set of three rolls from Igloo Store for $20, including shipping.

This is Fancy Frills' 100th entry! I was originally planning a giveaway, but I don't have it quite ready yet, so that will be put on hold for a bit. Instead, I'm featuring these edgy wedding rings that Alex & Chloe have designed for Revolve's exclusive collection, The List, which features one-of-a-kind, limited edition objects from culture-makers in fashion, art, music, and design. Alex & Chloe's Holding You Forever wedding rings are custom-made when you order and subvert the traditional wedding ring with their signature style. Inverted diamonds, square bands, and concentric circles offer a new twist on an old classic. These are made of 14k solid gold and retail for $1804 to $1892.
