Contest ends May 31st 2011, still time to enter! If you own an official Polaroid camera manual from the 1960's, 70's or 80's you've undoubtedly noticed the mod ladies stiffly posing for product shots. With perfectly manicured†nails and immaculately coiffed hair, these ladies were not only fine as wine, but they're also a window into the fashion of the day. If you have seen the hit series Mad Men and salivated over the styles of the working girls, this is your chance to step into those heels and take a memo! Let's have some playful fun with 1960's, 70's, and 80's style. LandCameras.

 Hey Rockers-- I have not been around much lately. (Although you can read my cover story with SECRET PERSON in next month's Bust!) But I wanted to post about this show and say some things about Japanther, and women, and the music scene. As you know, if you are in a band or go to shows, rock and roll sexism is alive and well! Brooklyn Vegan and other music sites regularly feature disparaging comments about the appearance of female musicians. Bands with women in them aren't taken seriously. Club owners and bookers assume a woman carrying an amp is someone's girlfriend.

At the BUST Magazine Craftacular and Food Fair, you can do more than just buy awesome clothes and accessories to make your friends jealous, you can also help save the world! This year, Farm Sanctuary has joined us again as a non-profit partner. Farm Sanctuary was founded in 1986 with the mission of working to protect farm animals and promote a vegan lifestyle with the long-term goal of changing the view farm animals are viewed by society. They combine rescue, education, and advocacy to help meet these goals.

Though her outfits are plain fabulous, Gala Darling is much more than just a style blog. She is a positive force of energy in the uncertain World Wide Web. Whether through her fashionable, fun ensembles or her Radical Self Love Series, "Love and Sequins" (sort of self help for those who hate "self help"), Gala Darling is one of the most positive forces out there. I like that she actually has fun with her fashion (sequins and glitter are always a plus!). My other favorite part is her "Things I Love Thursdays.

In addition to 100+ craft and food vendors, DJs, goodie bags, raffle prizes, and food trucks (phew!), the BUST Magazine Craftacular and Food Fair is thrilled to host book signings by two amazing chef-authors! At 3 PM, Erin McKenna, founder of popular vegan bakery BabyCakes, is signing her cookbook BabyCakes Covers the Classics: Gluten-Free Vegan Recipes from Donuts to Snickerdoodles. Get the secret to BabyCakes' perfectly baked donuts in this collection of 50 delicious recipes with a healthy, modern edge.

What’s in a crafter's dream world? Rows and endless bins and hooks filled with all the accessories, chains, beads, and feathers and add ons one could dream up. Vintage and new charms to add character to jewelry that is made in front of your eyes. How about the option to pick up your own supplies for that d.i.y zen-like that comes over a person after the satisfaction of making something by hand? Well ladies, your dreams have come true. Brooklyn Charm has become a much beloved staple in the neighborhood of Williamsburg.

The “Gender in Society” team, made up of folks from POTENTIA magazine, (which "covers gender, sexuality and power relations in a non-pretentious manner”) and Utrecht University, NL (where our own BUST editor-in-chief, Debbie Stoller once worked!) have entered the 2011 Academic Yearprice Competition. The grand prize is 100,000 euros, which the “Gender in Society” group plans to use to create a documentary on gender.

GIRLS RUN THE WORLD! Beyonce, you are a beautiful Queen and I love watching you break it down in post apocalyptic dance offs, chanting girl power lyrics over Major Lazer's "Pon De Floor". Beyonce, what more can I say? You're on a rearing black stallion in an all white suit. You're dancing in heels on sand. (A feat that I am sure is impossible, further convincing me that you are not in fact human, but some kind of amazonian deity of my dreams.)I love the way the light reflects off your Gareth Pugh shoes, and the crazy things you wear on your fingers. Please writhe around in sand more often.

My mom hasn’t passed on any homemade recipes deeply rooted in family history, and my great grandmother’s idea of an important, basic, tried-and-true recipe includes “Velvet Salad,” a product of 1960s cuisine involving lemon jello, mayonnaise and pineapple. Not all of us have been blessed with handwritten heirloom recipes or domestic traditions, and so we must learn the basics from the beginning.
