Mystery Solved.

How does one pronounce ASOS, exactly? Why do men’s shirts button from a different side than women’s? Where and how often does Anna Wintour get her hair cut? And why the red soles on Christian Louboutin’s?

Yesterday, Refinery 29 tweeted out a link to a feature they ran in March (I’m so behind the times), “29 of Fashion’s Biggest Mysteries, Solved!” which covered all of these and way more (including why it’s Refinery 29 and not 27, say). I love little factoids like this. They’re the perfect pieces of useless, interesting trivia to bust out at your next dinner party.

Also, how adorable are the illustrations that went along with the feature? Hey, Refinery, who did these?

    I am completely entertained by useless info like these factoids…the worst part is that I will remember every word of these, but whenever I study for a test or something, it’s a struggle to remember most of it! Why is that?!?
