Last weekend I watched The Devil Wears Prada for the first time in 6 years. It reminded me how much the opinion of fashion editors matters in the industry. In recent years more bloggers have received the privilege of sitting in the front row at a number of shows. Often I wonder if some of these bloggers really deserved to be there, and I'm not alone. Jeremy Danté recently explored this issue in an insightful article.

So you've heard of a boathouse, but have you ever seen a house shaped like a boat? Me neither until I came across Vanessa Chiu's house on the Urban Outfitters blog. I love how she and her boyfriend decorated it. I don't think I could live there full time, but it could totally be my vacation house.

I've always heard about Meika, but I never knew much about her. She's definitely an artist to check out. I love that she went from waitressing at Hotel Cafe and watching people like Katy Perry and Sia on stage to eventually taking the stage herself. It's so indie Cinderella.

Good news, Honey 2 is finally out on DVD! The movie stars Katerina Graham from Vampire Diaries. You'll also recognize choreographer Laurieann Gibson and dancer/choreographer Casper Smart (yes, J.Lo's current bf). I'm sure the storyline follows the usual dance movie plot, but you know I'll be watching and studying all the dance numbers.
