Shop It Out: Fifty Shades of Grey
Unless you've been living under a rock, you've likely either read or considered reading Fifty Shades of Grey. An erotic novel that began, believe it or not, as a piece of Twilight-inspired fan fiction, the book's been at the very top of the New York Times Best Seller list for two months straight—along with its sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.
When news broke that the movie rights for Fifty Shades had been sold to Universal Pictures for a whopping $3 million, there was no more denying it: this steamy trilogy is officially a full-blown phenomenon. In between making office-wide bets as to who might play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey on the big screen, we rounded up some items inspired by the story—along with choice snippets from the text itself. Enjoy.
