I’m inclined to love this dress because the shape is totally retro, and I think the color is absolutely stunning against olive skin. That being said, the color combined with the texture of the ruffles makes for a very frothy dress, does it not? I wouldn’t be that surprised if I found out it wasn’t actually made of fabric, but layers of peach buttercream. And now I’m hungry. Anyway, what do you think of Vanessa’s fashion confection?

I feel the need … the need for tweed. God, that was awful, I’m sorry. But seriously, with fall weather comes my annual urges to adorn myself with tweed in every incarnation: dresses, pants, skirts, jackets, shoes. A touch of tweed will bring some dapper “Downton Abbey” vibes to your wardrobe, and as an added bonus, it’s such a sturdy material that it usually lasts forever. Here are 12 tweed pieces I’m currently lusting after…
This is Kazuhiro Watanabe. Last week he shattered the world record for tallest mohawk with his massive spike of hair that reaches 3 feet, 8.6 inches above his head. Pretty amazing, right?
Between Kazuhiro’s new record and NASA’s mohawked hottie, this punk rock hairstyle is definitely having a moment (in related news, it might be a good time to buy stock in Aquanet). All this recent ‘hawk talk got us in the mood to ogle some other crazy mohawks, so we found 10 more (literally) hair-raising hairdos, including a couple past record holders.

Here are 15 particularly zany examples, along with the best places to wear them…
This fall has brought us a plethora of fabulous clothing and accessories in delicious shades of tangerine, apricot, pumpkin, and, well, orange (did anyone else just get really hungry?).

Here’s Lady Gaga stepping out of her hotel on her way to attend the Matthew Williamson show at London Fashion Week, looking totally normal. Just kidding! She seems to have inserted her head into one of those spherical flower bouquets that everyone’s obsessed with on Pinterest. I must say that the small portion of her face peeking out from her head garden looks really beautiful, though–her skin is dewy and her makeup is on point. Suddenly I have the urge to stick my head into the vase of daisies on my desk. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
At the risk of sounding like a grumpy old man, I miss cassette tapes. I miss their fuzzy sound quality. I miss the weight of them in my hand. I miss organizing them alphabetically in my bottom dresser drawer. I miss waiting by the radio like a lion ready to pounce on the “record” button when my favorite songs came on (confession: I had an entire cassette dedicated to AJ McLean saying “baby”). That’s why I appreciate this awesome cassette tape ring, which is so detailed you could almost rewind it with a pen. Almost. [$15, Pink Mascara]
Funny story: I was planning to do a roundup of all different kinds of comfort foods, but then I asked my Twitter followers for their favorite comfort foods, and pretty much everyone said “MAC AND CHEESE,” and I was like, damn, I guess I need to do a whole post dedicated to cheesy pasta deliciousness. So that’s what I’m doing. Click through for 10 mouthwatering mac and cheese recipes, from classic to gourmet to vegan(!), and stay tuned for more comfort food favorites in the coming weeks…
