As someone who practically lives online (okay, that just sounds pathetic... how about someone who just types a lot), I take pleasure in fashionable pieces or accessories that find clever ways to poke fun at the modern geek-chic side in all of us. Unlike more kitschy items like Space Invaders socks or iChat pillows, these Tom Binns Quotation Stud Earrings, available at Shopbop, are quirky in a subtle way that doesn't outwardly yell "I'm a total dweeb and I don't care who knows it!" Not like there's anything wrong with that; I'm just saying these studs can actually be worn without embarrassment outside the privacy of your Tetris-decorated apartment. Plus, they'd go great with your gold-plated Twitter necklace (or not)!Price: $88Who Found It: xgalexy was the first to add the Tom Binns Quotation Stud Earrings to the Hive.
