2012 marks the 70th anniversary of the "We Can Do It" poster and of the push to enlist women into the workforce due to the lack of laborers caused by World War II. The "Rosie the Riveter" look has been tried on by countless women since artist J. Howard Miller based his vision of the 1940s war woman on Michigan factory worker Geraldine Hoff. The iconic image is definitely striking, but what is more remarkable to consider are the experiences of a real-life Rosie, six million of whom entered the workforce in the 1940s.

In case y’all Liz Lemon-lovers haven’t been keepin’ up with your Twitter feed, we should explain that 30 Rock has been receiving a helluva lot of flack this season. The critics say that Liz is more frazzled and mean; has become infantile and has an unhealthy father-daughter relationship with Jack; is turning into Homer Simpson; is too much of a bitch to her writers; is an idiot; is just not quirky enough. Perhaps you agree with these gripes, but when I came across the vitriol, I was pretty surprised.

  You’ve undoubtedly heard that women are born with all the eggs they’ll ever produce—once they’re gone, you’re SOL if you want to have kids. (Unlike men, who can theoretically reproduce until, and possibly after, their last breath.) Well, you and I were misinformed. Back in 2004, scientists found egg-producing stem cells in the ovaries of adult mice. But new research from Harvard’s Massachusetts General Hospital has shown that human ladies are capable of generating similar stem cells.

Everyone is talking about last night's Academy Awards style today, and for good reason (Gwyneth Paltrow's cape! Rooney Mara's bangs! Angelina Jolie's leg! Meryl Streep's gold dress/Oscar-winning connection!). I always like to imagine what I'd wear if I could be on the red carpet at a major awards ceremony, and I think I may have found my dream dress on the Jeremy Scott Fall 2012 runway. If you haven't seen The Unicorn Dress That Launched A Thousand Squeals yet, behold: It's everything I love in one outfit: flowy sheer black fabric and a giant freaking unicorn.

After last week's frustrating news about jewelry company Tatty Devine, we're happy to report something a little cheerier: their book, How to Make Jewellery with Tatty Devine, will be published by Penguin in the U.S. in 2013! Tatty Devine (founded by Rosie Wolfenden and Harriet Vine) has become famous in England for their witty, offbeat designs, often made out of Perspex (a type of lightweight, durable acrylic). The brand's arty wares can be found in shops worldwide,  and their popular custom-made name necklaces have been spotted on Jessie J and Claudia Schiffer, among others.

I showed you some of the stylish blogger ladies of fashion week, but now take a gander at part 1 of Lincoln Center's fashion show attendees making their way to and from shows oh-so-stylishly. The weather ranged from breezy one day to snowy the next, so I commend all sartorial efforts in the face of the New York Fashion Week chill. Here are some of my favorite looks from the first couple of days of street-style documenting. For more of my Fashion Week favorites, head over to TheRebelWaltz.com.

So clip-on earrings aren't exactly "on-trend" as far as I know, but ever since my earlobe ripped (it's pretty gnarly and I'm strangely proud of it), I've had to acquire an appreciation for them-- which wasn't difficult! The thing about clip-on earrings is that many of them--especially vintage ones--are like little brooches for your ears. They're often much prettier and more intricate than regular earrings, they're unique, and they stand out more. At the same time, they're also more pull off-able than say, statement necklaces (looking at you, weird bib things).

We're a month away from season 5 of AMC's runaway hit Mad Men. After an insufferably long break, I think we're all a little rusty on the tangled, sexy web our friends at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce have been weaving. Fortunately, we found a handy graphic that maps out all the affairs, flirtations, and well I guess old-fashioned committed sex that made us love this show so much.

The South certainly has us buzzing this afternoon! It seems that every day there is a breaking story about a new assault on women's rights. The latest addition to the fray comes from Georgia (my home state: keep up the good work, y'all). Mother of four Nirvana Jennette reports that she was asked to leave church for breastfeeding her child during a service. The incident didn't end there, however, as Jennette claims the pastor compared her breastfeeding to a stripper performing.
