This Week’s Must-Haves: iPhone X, Calvin Klein Sheer Sweater, 3D Skull Ice Cubes
Apple officially introduced its latest smartphone, the iPhone X, this week. Rihanna also revealed her latest beauty products with a huge to-do. If you’re looking for home furnishings, West Elm has a number of great selections, including this must-have item of the week. From $16 to $1,700, here are our must-haves for the week.
1. iPhone X
The wait is finally over! Apple announced its new product lineup during its latest press conference. It is hard to believe the iPhone turns ten this year. To commemorate this special occasion, Apple launched their newest phone, along with iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, to celebrate this event.
This new iPhone is nothing but screen. It responds to a tap, your voice, and with its FaceID technology, even a glance. It’s also the first OLED iPhone, providing a better visual image. The new iPhone X also comes with TruthCamera for emoji-lovers. TruthCamera analyzes your facial movements and mirrors your expression in one of twelve animated emoji — called “animoji.”
To top it all off, this new smartphone charges wirelessly. This beauty will cost you an arm and a leg — $1,000. But, if you must have it, you can pre-order the iPhone X starting October 27th at apple.com.
2. Calvin Klein 205W39NYC Sheer Sweater
Yes! This sweater from Raf Simons’ first collection for Calvin Klein is sheer on the front and the back. In fact, this sheer crew neck knit is also available in women’s sizes. For dramatic purposes, Simons sent this look down the runway with minimum coverage — very much in line with Calvin Klein’s original aesthetic. If you’re modest and don’t want to show off too much skin, no need to worry. The final product, retailing for $1,155 at calvinklein.us, has an extra layer added for coverage; your nipples won’t be the focus point… unless you want them to be.

4. Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Blotting Sheets
She sings. She acts. And she is a fashion icon with her own clothing line with Puma. Rihanna literally can do no wrong. So what is her latest endeavor? A makeup line, of course. RiRi recently launched Fenty Beauty with huge fanfare. Fan favorites include a variety of shades matching different skin tones.
However, there is one particular product stands out from this collection, Beauty Blotting Sheets. We all appreciate how blotting papers make us look fresh and dewy without excess oil. However, it is the shape of this beauty product has people talking. Rihanna is not shy about her use of pot, so this product looks like a rolling paper dispenser. Coincidence? For $16 at fentybeauty.com, you decide.

This recliner is not your father’s old La-Z-Boy. This recliner has a retro feel, but is built from top materials. The leather is top-grain, full aniline-dyed in Nero or Saddle. Plus the solid ash wood frame is Pecan-stained (for Nero) or Espresso-stained (for Saddle.) It also comes with a hidden steel push-back mechanism, so it is easy to recline.
