  • Glow-In-The-Dark Jeans

    Wondering what to get the club kid who has everything? Try glow-in-the-dark jeans. Naked & Famous <a href="http://www.nakedandfamousdenim.com/blog/glow-in-the-dark-jeans/" target="_hplink">created these stunners</a> by baking a phosphorescent coating into the fabric. If left out in sunlight or under a light bulb, they'll beam like glow sticks. As an added bonus: "After you beat them up a bit the wear patterns will cause the coating to fade in certain parts of the jean and will create a unique piece of glowing art," Naked & Famous <a href="http://www.nakedandfamousdenim.com/blog/glow-in-the-dark-jeans/" target="_hplink">writes on its blog</a>.
