I recently had the pleasure of attending Julie Mollo's 2012 Collection Launch Party and it couldn't have been more fun! Her collection consisted of flirty circle skirts that swish in all the right ways and sexy sports bras embellished to perfection. The skirts were made up of things such as music notes, pac-man, sea creatures, skylines, and, best of all, bubbles!  With skirts like theses, balloons and doo-wop setting the mood, the atmosphere was nothing short of fun, flirty, and fifties. For a circle skirt of your very own, check out Mollo's online shop.

At this very moment, thousands of representatives from NGOs, government officials, and everyday citizens from around the globe who are concerned about the progress of our world are gathered in Rio de Janeiro for the UN’s Conference on Sustainable Development (colloquially referred to as Rio+20). The conference is constructed around seven ‘critical issues’ – jobs, energy, cities, food, water, oceans, and disasters – and the ways that the individuals and nations in attendance can commit to alleviating these pressing problems around the world.

Our week of hot, sunny sunshine just got a little bit brighter. Cat Power’s Chan Marshall recently released an official announcement for her upcoming album Sun with a new track that’s got us tapping our toes on the hot sidewalk cement. “Ruin” may be Marshall’s brightest song yet, driven by an uplifting piano melody and pulsating, rhythmic drumbeat. The song is accompanied by lady Cat Power’s soothing voice, which is as beautiful as ever.

A high fashion runway is something you either love or hate. For some, the looks can be captivating and inspiring in that “How did they even think of that?” kind of way. But for others, the clothes can simply look like the aftermath of a closet explosion that somehow found its way onto the body of a model, a look that is seemingly impossible to relate to. Self-taught nail guru Miss Ladyfinger challenges the latter by translating these intricate looks into pretty manicures, with step-by-step instructions on how to achieve them yourself.

Do you like cats? Are you allergic? If you said yes to the first or both questions, you're in luck. Even if you are allergic to the adorable furry monsters, you can show your love for felines by wearing them on your legs. Our friends at Pretty Snake made this bomb pair of leggings, but they need your help to make more to fit their demand. If you like their leggings or cats in general, head over to their kickstarter page to make a donation. Donations can get you a wide variety of cat-themed fashions, so give some cash and be the cat's meow.

It’s no secret that undocumented young people have been at the forefront in the fight for the Dream Act. The New York Times has called these immigrants “highly visible and vocal activists” unafraid to demand a rightful place in the country they have called home for most of their lives. For the past decade, Congress has been stalling on the act, which would provide a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who meet various requirements.

Corsets: only 10 years ago, the term conjured up images of uncomfortable Victorian women squeezed into difficult contraptions. But it’s 2012, and that means that corsets are now a fun and sexy option for any lady’s lingerie wardrobe. They’re everywhere, from popular webstores to specialty lingerie boutiques and even common mall shops. And apparently a lot of women are taking advantage of the corset craze. eBay has seen a 185% increase in corset sales in just the last three months—that’s 1900 corsets worldwide.

Have you ever ziplined? It involves an invigorating slide on a line while holding onto a bar above your head. Have you ever ziplined naked? It involves, well, nudity. And for 100 women in British Columbia, it involves charity.   ZipZone Adventures is holding its second annual nude ziplining event June 21. Billed as ZipZone Naked 100, the zipline park hopes to enlist the help of 100 women to zipline in various stages of undress. Each participant is being asked to raise at least $100 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Research Foundation and the goal is to raise at least $20,000.

The BUST blog has kept you abreast of many of the appalling attacks on reproductive rights in the United States, most recently through the story of the two Michigan state representatives who were banned from speaking on the House floor for using the words “vagina” and “vasectomy” in a debate over abortion-related legislation.

If you haven't heard of remix pro Pogo, you're in for a treat. He creates his "remixes" by using odd noises, chords, and voices from films such as Snow White and UP to Lord of the Rings and Dexter, and the results really are truly incredible (and oh-so-catchy!). Check out his newest remix of the classic "Pulp Fiction" below and thank us later. [video:http://www.youtube.
