 Writer Dorothy Parker once vowed there were three things she’d never attain: "envy, content, and sufficient champagne." Girl, I feel that universal struggle. But if you show up to Speed Rack NYC this Monday, you’ll at least attain a few darn good cocktails and four hours of non-stop boozy entertainment.   Now in the midst of its fifth national tour, Speed Rack is the one n’ only speed bartending competition created by and for badass female bartenders. Before a crowd of spectators and a panel...
Lizzo's newest music video is so moving. The Minneapolis based rapper's next album, Big GRRRL Small World is all set to come out Dec 11, which is basically like tomorrow. Regardless, I'm sitting here toe-tapping, thumb twiddling, and trying really hard to play it cool before the bomb drops.  Everything this woman does is heartfelt and real, which neatly falls under my definition of femme badassery. I'd definitely say that the lady is warrior princess material, and in the video for My Skin, she glows. She released the...
New Yorkers love food, and part of assimilating to society here is learning to *obssess* about weirdly specific items, like egg creams, cronuts, tacos and of course, pizza.    But you know what? I’m from the South. And in the South, food isn’t fancy. We like our food messy and informal. Which is why you will most definitely spot me at the Brooklyn Chili Takedown this Sunday.  So what’s a takedown you ask? Imagine Top Chef, but more like a party than a cutthroat competition – all...
Sexist dress codes are nothing new. Recently, there was Carey Buress of Beaufort High School in South Carolina, who was sent home for wearing this shockingly whorish outfit. There was the group of students in Charleston, South Carolina (what is it with South Carolina?) who wore scarlet A’s to protest fucked up dress codes when, according to The Post and Courier,  a girl was told by her guidance counselor that “If you’re a larger girl, wear a longer skirt so your butt doesn’t show.” It’s...
In this morning’s addition to bigotry against LGBT parenting, two lesbian foster parents in Utah have had their one-year-old taken from them, thanks to the clutches of Mormonism. The legally married couple, Beckie Pierce and April Hoagland, had been caring for the child for three months as the state worked towards severing the biological mother’s parental rights. The mother had asked Hoagland and Pierce to take charge, and the couple is licensed to serve as foster parents. Any logical (read: sane) person would look at this...
Ah, flickering candlelight and Christmas go together like Turkey and Brussel sprouts... And with a handmade candle by BUST Craftacular London stallholder East Wick the festive effect will be all the better! The candles are made in East London (hence the name, although there's a witchy reference in there, too) by Roxi and Em, who use all-natural vegan soy wax in a sense-stirring selection of fragrances. Fancy something sweet? Try Fig, Bergamot & Apple. Something rich? Light up the Woodland Musk. Or maybe the Coconut...
Artist Kara Walker’s first show in London, Go To Hell or Atlanta, Whichever Comes First, follows suit in the artist's tradition of deconstructing the sexual and racial. Walker’s previous works include 2014 installation A Subtlety, a giant sugar sphinx in the industrial Brooklyn treasure, the Domino Sugar Factory. In 1994, Walker was awarded a MacArthur “genius,” grant for her gigantic mural, Gone: An Historical Romance of Civil War As it Occurred b’tween the Dusky Thighs of One Young Negress and Her Heart. Her London exhibition,...
Well, this is how excited we are that Wool and the Gang are coming to the BUST Christmas Craftacular on November 22! For those of you that don't know, Wool and the Gang is the East London tour de force that is helping to take knitting to a whole new place. Combining scrumptious yarns, patterns and chic kits with knit parties and a gang mentality, founders Aurelie Popper and Jade Harwood are "pioneering fashion production that's made in a sustainable way, bringing back knitting as...
  When Solange Knowles posted a photo of her son in Halloween garb, she was met mostly with praise. Julesz posed with impressive steeze for an 11-year-old poise in an LL Cool J costume, leaning against a brick wall in a red track suit and Adidas. “Young Cool J too cool for ghosts and goblins,” she captioned the photo.  While the photo accumulated a deserved several thousand likes, it also inspired one troll to rear it’s head from the depths of the social media-verse. “So cute but...
BUST is teaming up with The Feminist Press to host the first-ever Challahday Party on December 3rd at The Green Building in Brooklyn.
