J'adore Glamour's list of 31 Cute Spring Dresses Under $100!

Such a great way to procrastinate: How Well Do You See Color? I got an 11, although I did rush through it - I like to think that I would have scored better if I'd taken my time. What score did you get?

Quiz: Stripper Heel or Designer Shoe? Some are a little tricky!

Here's another great DIY project, although this one looks like it takes a considerable amount of sewing knowledge: DIY "Bicolor Dress", from Style Scrapbook!

Tavi (yes, that Tavi) did a great post this week on Anna Wintour, the high school-ness of Fashion Week, and her feelings on the state of the industry right now. She's such a talented writer - it's still hard to believe she's so young!

*

Um, if you're a fan of Monster Energy drink, this article might make you wanna switch to Red Bull...

Another big controversy that broke this week: (The first link is probably non-work-safe due to language!) USC Kappa Sigma fraternity email leaks, explains women are "targets," not "actual people." So pathetic and sad. A couple follow-up posts, also via Jezebel: Student Explains Email's Origins, Alleges Cover-Up, and Frat Life And The USC Email.

It may just be because I'm a rabid Sasha fangirl, but I loved Sasha Pivovarova's shots for Free People!
