My brother just got his brand new Utilikilt…one of the few options for straight dudes to express their feminine side in a masculine way. And while the Utilikilt crew insists women wearing these functional skirts are cross-dressing, they agree that girls look hot in them! Any BUSTie ladies out there rockin’ a handmade Utilikilt? We’d love to see some pics. And to see more pics of men in skirts, check out http://www.utilikilts.com.

I know she got so wasted she had to be carried out of the Glamour Awards...blah blah blah her dress rules! It is lil dears with their heads slashed and blood spray by Giles Decon for Elsa Schiaparelli! The shoes rule. The hair she dyed herself in her bathroom! Keep on reading for my fav runway look from the Spring 2008 collection and a little history on Elsa and her surrealist/Dada fashions. This is my fav look from the Spring line: That hat made my day!I love Elsa Schiaparelli.
 I was thinking of a more interesting title for this, but what more can be said than that a great man has died.  My love for fashion, especially the haute couture houses, came not through shopping, but through lots and lots of reading.  But for those interested in learning more about YSL, I suggest starting out with Slate's picture gallery which is dedicated to YSL today.
 Released last May, photographer Virginia Lee Hunter documents America’s gypsies through photographs and interviews in her book “Carny: Americana on the Midway”.  Be sure to check out the opening reception and booksigning with Hunter on Thursday, July 10th at 6pm at Umbrage Gallery! Or if you can’t make it out you can go check out the exhibition from July 3rd through August 14th  for a trip down Nostalgia Boulevard cuz we all can share the memories of the county fair from a childhood long gone.
Now that it's Summer, it's time for all our favorite sunny day games and pastimes: kites, slip and slide, kickball games in the park, and...double dutch! Personally, I was never able to master the dual ropes, barely had enough rhythm for one in fact. But San Francisco's jezebels of jump rope, Double Dutchess, don't have that problem. Lisa B. wrote about these ladies in BUST a few years back. If you've never had the opportunity to catch them live, check them hip and hop along in this video...
I happened upon this amazing short film by BLU today. On a perfect summer day like today it makes me want to run out of the office and make something beautiful. Watch this movie and be absolutely stunned...
If the summer heat's got you going commando this season, don't leave your lonely lacies in a drawer. Send them to a Burmese embassy instead.The Panties for Peace campaign, revived this year in the wake of Cyclone Nargis, is calling for the ladies of the world to mail used underpants to their local Burmese embassies and speak out against the military regime's violation of human rights—against women in particular. The campaign was started last year by women's organization Lanna Action for Burma as a bid to end the rape, sexual violence and other abuse used to enforce the regime's rule.
This is just so sad, Tatum O'neal was busted again for drugs. When I was a kid, Paper Moon was my absolute favorite movie, I loved her cool, tom boy antics, and then bad News Bears come out- jeez, that was a masterpiece as far as I was concerned! Anyway, I guess all that  smoking and drinking on screen did lead to the addictions she can't seem to shake at 44 years old. I feel bad now.
