    KEY TO YOUR HEART: Need a little more control in your life? Check out this ring ($16), which is made from the control key -- a.k.a the  Ctrl key -- of a laptop by local designer Capitola Girl. We're also a fan of the other pieces in her Silicon Gallies line, which has been featured in Elle magazine.

    THEIVES CAN'T KEEP US DOWN: Hip clothing retailer Shotwell is finally opening after a burglary forced it to shut down, Glamwatch reports.

    EMPEROR VALENTINO: Check out the documentary "Valentino: The Last Emperor" for a glimpse into the life of a fashion god. You can buy or rent the DVD here.

    TOTE-ALLY: The best thing about totes are their functionality. They can be used to tow groceries, books, gym clothes, or anything else that won't fit into a purse. But most totes, even the uber-green ones, look completely boring. Enter local company Loulen Studio, with their beautifully-made bags in a variety of funky designs. We like the Three Fabric Tote ($69).

    SHOP FOR CHARITY: Get gently worn designer clothing on the cheap at Career Closet in Foster City from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. All purchases benefit a charity that gives career clothing and career advice to women re-entering the workplace. [Yelp]
