* Refinery 29 answers 29 of your most perplexing fashion questions, from whether “pony hair is actually made from ponies, to what the heck Prorsum means anyway.” The illustrations are lovely, too.

* Super cool idea for a blog: The Composites features composite sketches of literary characters based on their descriptions in the books!

* The Frisky talks Fashion, Feminism, and the Power of Self-Expression. Do you believe you can love fashion AND still be a feminist? We sure do!

    The music on The Quiet Place site makes me sad because it’s the music they play whenever something really depressing and terrible happens on the show Lost. :( lol!

    I liked the idea of the Quiet Place… I would’ve liked it more if the music wasn’t the song they played in “LOST” when someone died or something emotional happened…

    Waahhhhhhh!!! Seconding the comments about the Quiet Place. There’s nothing relaxing about Giacchino’s “Life and Death”…all I can think of when I hear it is all the traumatizing character deaths in LOST :(
    I guess it’s not a problem if you never watched the show, though!
