    Promising review: "I am very happy with the quality of these beautiful yellow mules and their unique architectural ball heels. Not to mention the very affordable price. I've worn them once and they were comfortable and felt well made. I find they are more comfortable with the strap on top of the foot as opposed to behind the heel. I also purchased the black pair.

    See BuzzFeed's review for this life-changing dress.

    Promising review: "All right, lemme just tell you guys, I took a gamble on this one: no reviews, coming from a foreign country, and it seemed too cheap to be true. But DAMN am I pleased. This gem is by FAR the most unique piece of clothing I have ever owned and oh my god do I love it. The fabric isn't the BEST quality, but no worse than the s**** you'd get from most chain stores like Kohl's or JC Penney. It's actually damn comfy and lightweight and I really have no major qualms with the fabric overall." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and two colors).

    24. A truly amazing pair of sunglasses shaped like swans.

    Bando

    They're clear, so it will take people a minute to see that they're shaped like birds, but the pay-off will definitely be a satisfying "woahhhh," from even your hardest to impress friends.

    25. A pocket tee with a happy No Face design — until you lower the pocket and see how hungry he is.
