We were totally obsessed with boozy popsicles this summer, but once the weather cools down, we’re going to have to put down our cocktails-on-a-stick and reach for a treat that won’t give us a brainfreeze. A worthy replacement for fall? Homemade lollipops! These bellini-flavored lollipops would be perfect for wedding favors, party treats, or just as an exceedingly glamorous way to get your afternoon sugar hit. Let the licking begin! [Etsy Weddings]
This model at the Duckie Brown Spring 2013 show bravely made his way down the runway in a garment that very much resembles a fresh fabric explosion. Thank goodness he seems to have escaped unscathed.
Thanks to Christian Louboutin’s lawsuit, today we all have the chance to read a very serious court ruling in which a judge makes reference to that ubiquitous and kind of terrible fashion term, “pop of color.” It all started last year when Louboutin claimed that a pair of red-soled heels by Yves Saint Laurent infringed on their trademark design. A lower court judge acknowledged the popularity of the Louboutin red sole and its visibility as a status symbol, but ruled that a single color could not be trademarked. Yesterday in a court of appeals, Judge José A. Cabranes handed down a verdict in favor of Louboutin, arguing that it is “the contrast between the sole and the upper that causes the sole to ‘pop’ and to distinguish its creator.” Not sure how this might affect all those DIYers who have been faking their own Loubs with a coat of red paint, but you might want to choose a different color to “pop,” just in case… [NYT] [Photo via Net-A-Porter]
So, Jared Leto posted this photo of himself with an American flag and a “big patriotic beard” at the Democratic National Convention on his Facebook page, and it’s bringing me such a potent mix of confusion and delight that I had to share it with you.

Tonight, the boy band One Direction will take the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards for a much-hyped performance. This fact is making me feel very old, because all the young people on the internet are freaking out about it and I’m like, “Wait, what is a One Direction?” This stands in stark contrast to my lifestyle in the ’90s, when my love for boy bands–namely the Backstreet Boys–was so intense I spent all my time talking about them, listening to them, watching their music videos, going to their concerts, writing them semi-desperate letters, making artful collages of their headshots, buying behind-the-scenes DVDs, and planning my inevitable BSB wedding. Yep, I knew–and still know–pretty much everything there is to know about the Backstreet Boys, but I know pretty much nothing about One Direction. Here are nine specific discrepancies that my 14-year-old self would be ashamed of… Keep reading »

Dear Sergey Pakhomov aka The Pasta Artist,
Six years ago you were working on an ad campaign for a Russian macaroni company and were struck by divine inspiration: what if you built models of various objects using macaroni? So you did, and the ad campaign fizzled, but your life was forever changed. Now you build all kinds of things using all different kinds of pasta: spaghetti motorcycles with rotelle wheels, bi-planes with lasagna wings, and a whole pasta town complete with a linguini windmill and penne playground.
So why am I contacting you today? Well, I’m something of an amateur pasta artist myself. A beautiful pan of cheesy rigatoni speaks to my heart and soul in a much more profound way than the Sistine Chapel ever could. I don’t care for oil paintings unless the oil is olive and the canvas is cannelloni. Your work truly moves me. What do you say we collaborate sometime?
Listen, I don’t want you to take this letter the wrong way, because I appreciate your work, I really do. You valiantly protect my boyfriend’s jaw night after night from the very real dangers of bruxism (aka teeth grinding), and it’s thanks to you that he hasn’t gnashed his teeth down into sad little stumps in his sleep. “Teeth” are like, number three on my Desirable Qualities In A Mate checklist, so in a way, you’ve ensured our relationship can continue to flourish.
It’s just, I guess I didn’t realize what a big role you would play in our relationship… Keep reading »
