Simply Fab: Barneys Snap Measure

How cool is this Barneys New York Snap Measure, $45? The mini 2x2 leather covered case with snap detail is the perfect way to measure in style!

This is how I imagine it would come in handy: I'm sitting around the apartment while the hot plumber is working on unclogging my sink. He asks for a measuring tape so he can, er, measure the pipes? Nevermind. I run to the drawers containing all my sewing needs and bring it to him. And, of course, he thinks it's, and I'm, so cute. Okay, back to reality. It's just one of those things you must have handy in your home because your clothing and accessories aren't the only things that should reflect your style!

Good lookin out Fab! Why stop with the skinny jeans, the lanvin flats or the new fringy prada? I'm all for paying a bit more and making sure that my miscellaneous possessions reflect my love for fashion! I say--life's short, measure with style!

Sheesh. Big waste of cash. I'd rather have stylish clothes than a stylish tape measure. Plus, on first orders with Net-a-Porter, they send a free one with a welcome card. It makes the chic buy so much more lovely.

How cute! Every house need a measuring tape why not a stylish one...

A total waste of money. Self-rewinding tape measures are junk. The spring that lets them rewind breaks easily, and depending on if the tape is fabric or plastic it can stretch from all the pulling, making it inaccurate.
