We all think dirty thoughts. Every single person in the entire universe. Why not display them proudly on a piece of  jewelry where everyone can see? Or give them as a gift to let someone know how you really feel. Don’t be shy! Sweet Nothings, a line of jewelry sold at In God We Trust, the New York City boutique boasts several different pieces worthy of adorning any dirty birds clavicle.  Each charm is made of brass and hand engraved by Shana Tabor; both the owner of the boutique and designer of the beloved line.

It's that time of year again: International Fluevog Day! On May 15th, the shoe company is partnering with BUST Magazine in offering 15% off everything in the BUST Boobtique store (all items, including subscriptions). That means in addition to getting 15% off all shoes in Fluevog AND free shipping on all online purchases, everyone who enters the FluevogDay11 coupon code at checkout in the Boobtique will recieve 15% off!   The famed shoe designer, who is celebrating 41 years, has seen his shoes on the feet of everyone from Madonna to glam electronic band, Scissor Sisters.

  The word being tossed around in relation to Kristen Wiig's star-making new comedy Bridesmaids is womance, and the portmanteau is somewhat apt but not entirely fair. Writers love a good pun or, better yet, a tidy way to label something, especially if it's a new sort of thing that we don't know quite how to handle, which, in a way, Bridesmaids is. Bridesmaids is not quite a chick flick, although it was written by Wiig and Annie Mumolo and boasts a femme-centric cast. There's some stuff about love, but it's definitely not a romcom.

  Watch this adorably pooped sea lion struggle his way through a Wednesday. I think this little lazy guy is my spirit animal. I may collapse and refuse to get up on my way to the printer. Push on little sea lion! We're gonna make it!   [video:http://www.youtube.

Only my second fashion show to date, the 2011 BFA Parsons Fashion Show was certainly an exciting one! This is a show that has previously help launch the careers of designers such as Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler at one of the most renowned fashion schools in the world. Other designer alums include Anna Sui, Narciso Rodriguez, Peter Som, and host/speaker of the event, Reed Krakoff.  As the show began, I felt like I was bombarded with fashion, my head turning every which way.

  Hailing from New Orleans, Big Freedia; Bounce's queen Diva who was featured in out Men We Love issue; is spreading the buzz about Bounce (a sexed-up, booty-shaking based, call and response style of hip-hop) by playing shows all over the country and demanding that folks shake it until they can’t stand up anymore. If you're in the New York City area and you've been to any of these performances, gotten totally pumped about Bouncing, but felt a little self conscious about technique; the New York School of Burlesque might be able to help you out.

    There is not much that Leslie Hall can’t do. My favorite performance artist/singer/dancer/awesome-gem-sweater-maker’s band, Leslie and the Ly’s, has just released a new jam from their new album Destination Friendship: The Feelings Album.  “Hydrate Jirate” promises a quality dancing experience; layering Leslie’s sweet, droney voice over a pulsing beat that’s reminiscent of old school Madonna’s “Burning up” (which I have always been a total sucker for).

Growing up I was shy and awkward. Okay, maybe I’m still a little shy and awkward but my point is that I didn’t always have the confidence to stand up for myself. But a major source of confidence and esteem building for me came from my involvement in Girl Guides (the Canadian version of Girl Scouts). Taking that lesson to heart, two amazing young ladies in Girl Scouts are standing up for what they believe in.

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to attend Parsons The New School For Design's BFA Fashion Show where I saw fashion galore! A more detailed post about some of the designers featured will soon be coming up, but for now, enjoy some of the super stylish audience members who attended. From stylish students and family to various media and press, you'd think it was Fashion Week the way audience members brought their own style to the mix.
