under $100: neon

by Grace Bonney

i’m not sure if it was my trip home to virginia or just a general yearning for trends of years past, but i’ve had neon on my mind in a big way. i unsuccessfully searched for my neon slap wraps (argh!) and t-shirt rings that let me knot my best shirts at my hip. it’s probably better that i leave those pieces in the past, but i couldn’t resist devoting today’s second under $100 roundup (click here for the first: iphone covers) to all things NEON. the majority of the guide is under $100, but i through in a few spectacular neon designs that tipped the budget scales a bit- in case anyone feels like splurging on some seriously bright colors. quick note: i don’t imagine any of these objects being used all together in one room, but the odd neon piece can really be a fun spot of color indoors. i never met a bright orange i didn’t like. enjoy!
