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. Read More

That's My Jam!

BY Bridgette Miller in Eat Me

Jessica at How About Orange shared this neat find today-- customizable jam labels by Andy Biggs (Biggs also offers handy labels for your homemade beer). The Jam Labelizer helps you get ready for your jelly by letting you type in the info you need to ID your jar, then pick a design and colors, and even add a photo, so that you may pull a Paul Newman and put your face on a line of food products. Of course, the labels can be used for a multitude of purposes unrelated to fruit preserves; simply tailor a design to your liking, download the high-resolution file, and print. Read More
