❣ new arrivals: blinking eyes & metallic martians ❣

It's been a while since my last shop update! Things have been slow this summer with Pop ❤ Tones, and I haven't released as many new designs as I was hoping to, but slowly and surely I'm adding new stuff when I can...

These lenticular eye candy rings are one of my latest (& greatest?) designs. Earlier this year when I posted a Judy Jetson-inspired outfit wearing a similar vintage flicker ring, I had quite a few people ask me where they could get their hands on one too, and now I'm happy to say that I can make one like it just for you! ^___^

These rings are currently listed as a pre-order item in the shop because I've sold quite a few of them since they were originally listed and I've run out of ring bases! I ordered some more the other day and they should arrive soon, but until then feel free to order a ring and I'll have it made and shipped to you as soon as my supplies come in.

All eye candy rings come in their own glittery/rainbow (rain-bowed?!) package.

I also just listed these pins in the shop today. I've been wanting to create some alien-themed badges for a while now, and when I got the idea for these metallic martian pins I just had to make them a reality!

Each pin is covered in either rainbow-reflective iridescent glitter or pink/green glow iridescent paper.

I even designed special UFO packaging for each badge to come in! I am beyond thrilled with how it turned out. :)

I also have two coupon codes active in the shop right now: 'welcomeback' will get returning customers 20% off and 'welcome10' will get new customers 10% off. If you've only previously ordered from Pop ❤ Tones when I was running it on blogspot you'll still qualify for the 20% off (I have records from those sales so I'll be able to check!) I'll be sure to keep these codes active for a while so everyone can get in on the sale prices.

As always, thanks for all of your support & for still paying attention to my little shop after (almost) 3 years! I have exciting new designs planned for release in September and October - until then...❤

stars & rockets

Space Age is a style that I'll never get tired of channeling into my outfits. I've probably mentioned this a million times before, but I'm almost certain that being a die-hard fan of the Zenon movies when I was a kid instilled a lasting love in me for tacky metallic clothing and outer space motifs. I played on some of those inspirations with today's outfit, but ended up going in more of a sixties direction with it. This dress instantly reminded me of André Courrèges the first time I laid eyes on it - with its high neckline, metallic buttons, and a-line shape I think it could easily pass for something he might have designed back in the day! I paired it up with some pop art-ish planetary tights and pointy metallic flats for maximum mod space lady vibes.

❣outfit details❣ 
dress & shoes - c/o Oasap | tights - eBay | alien brooch - Ultra Terrestrial

André Courrèges jumpsuit (see? what'd I tell ya about the metallic buttons!), space boots, and sunglasses.

I'm doing my own take on Courrèges' ~futuristic~ eye wear with these kaleidoscope sunglasses from zeroUV. They're pretty much useless as actual sunglasses (& make me a bit dizzy when I put them on, to be honest!) but I just had to have them anyway. Iridescent anything is pretty much irresistible to me.

Here's a close up of my tights, mainly so you can get a better look at the little rocket ships that are printed along with all the star bursts and planets. I found these on eBay years ago and now I'm wishing I had ordered a back up pair (or two!) because they're starting to fall apart. T^T

It kinda looks like I'm about to zap somebody with my laser beams eyes here - haha!

fall forward

With the sudden arrival of August (honestly, where has the time gone? wasn't it just June?!) I can't help but feel like summer is quickly coming to an end, and this has got me thinking of fall and the return of sweater weather! As much as I love crop tops and sandals, I don't think I'll ever love them quite as much as I do my collection of silly novelty sweaters and chunky boots. With that in mind, I've put together this little round up of things that I would love to add to my F/W wardrobe this season (& maybe you will, too!)...
