Crushes are fun. They can be fleeting. They can be intense. They can be completely unrealistic and ideally, completely harmless. What started as an easy way to compile my latest faves turned into my most popular column in 2011 ~ and I love it. What’s more fun than having a crush ? Getting to tell everyone about it, of course!

My favorite collection of 2011 crushes seems particularly fitting for the looming new year. I feel pretty confident you’ll agree…
