Thank god for the dresses! I thought the show this year was nothing too special and was not impressed with the hosts (James Franco looked high and bored and Anne Hathaway awkwardly laughed and fidgeted too much), but was happy with the outfits and did not see too much I didn’t like. Top 3 I [...]

One of my west coast dream houses. Via A Conversation on Cool
My friend Jessie, new writer at Her Blue Print, the blog for the International Museum of Women that I’ve previously mentioned, sent me the trailer for a new doc that recently came out entitled Miss Representation.
