My mom likes to call her walk-in closet ''the archives,'' and for good reason: the wardrobe filed away inside is a repository of fashion history.  Swearing that ''fashion is cyclic,'' she has stowed artifacts from every fashion craze since the sixties.  Double-breasted blazers, polyester frocks, and an impressive collection of spandex stirrup pants are all hoarded in her vault-of-vogue.  Sometimes she can explore the depths and resurface a ...

If you watched Mad Men a couple of weeks ago, you may have been wowed by Pete Campbell's surprising ability to cut the rug at his boss's twenties-themed garden party: Well, if you live in NYC and harbor a desire to go to a similar type of party, including Charleston dance lessons, vintage cocktails, live music, old 78 records played on an old time-y gramophone, and, zomg, a PIE BAKING CONTEST, then you're in luck, because this weekend sees hte return of the ...

Carrie Brownstein just doesn't stop! We recently posted clips of her hilarious work with Fred Armisen as one half of Thunderant, and now she's back again with a more serious turn in the film Some Days Are Better Than Others. The trailer premiered today on the film's website, which offers this bit of tantalizing information: Corin Tucker, also formerly of Sleater-Kinney, will be making an appearance as 'soccer mom.' Ladies, you're obviously still ... Read More
For graduation, my bestie and I wanted to go all out--drop some serious doughcoin on something totally extravagant and somewhat irresponsible. I'm pretty sure most people in our situation would pull a collegiate cop-out and buy a bunch of booze. But we young, fabulous, bachelorettes of the arts passed up the bodegas in favor of a nail salon and a set of superfly, super-long, acrylic nails. I'm not sure how to rate the current popularity of elaborately decorated ... Read More
Mark your calendars, ladies! On October 11, BUST's very own Emily Rems will be celebrity judging the 9th Annual Miss Lez Pageant in Brooklyn, New York! Murray 'Mr. Showbiz' Hill, has this to say: 'The Miss Lez Pageant takes the traditional, 'straight,' out-dated beauty pageant and turns it upside down, inside-out, outside-in, by giving queer womyn the chance to interpret what beauty and a pageant means to them. In other words, there are no rules and the outcome is ... Read More
I don't really remember too much about Sweet Valley High, just that my babysitter was hooked! She'd come over on the weekend, watch a little Saved by the Bell, and then have her stack of mags and Sweet Valley Highs all ready to go. If I would have been a hair older, I most likely would have been all over this 152+ book series. Well, I might just have to get into the series since...DIABLO CODY is going to write and produce an adaptation of it! I'm sure ... Read More
I adore Miranda July. I want her creativity for my own and I gobble up everything she produces, whether it be her short stories, performance art, films, or the Learning to Love You More assignments (which they no longer do!). When I saw the pictures of her on VICE's site, well, I craved more. The subject of the set of pictures was to take an extra from a still of a film (The Godfather, Grease, and The Outsiders are three of those that were selected) and have ... Read More

Georgia O'Keeffe: Abstraction will feature her lovely abstracts, which were often overlooked (due to the sexual nature many saw in her ... Read More
