After Lisa’s "Awesome Lady Drummer Roundup," there was so much positive feedback, enthusiasm, and an overwhelming amount of suggestions, it was undeniable that a second lady drummer roundup was called for.  As a drummer myself, I am honored to share with you the musician babes whom I worship and who inspire me. We present to you the following roundup of mainly current and underground bands in hopes of shedding a little bit of light on these kick-ass bands whose drummers happen to be female. Read More
When you think of "cat fashion," you might think of cats in costumes or at least that's what google is giving me, but when I think "cat fashion," I think of these fantastically adorable Charlotte Olympia shoes. They are so ridiculously cute that I pulled a  Rachel Zoe when I saw them and muttered something along the lines of, "ohmygosh, I die."  I found the red wedge version and oh look, it's on sale for only (ONLY?!) $895 at Bergdorf Goodman! Ok, so these beauties are a little (a lot) out of my price range, but at least they're super cute to look at. Read More
I'm used to taking fashion cues from style icons of long ago, but Alexa Chung is one of the few modern gals whose style I love through and through. She's got an effortless and playful ease to her look that many girls, including myself, definitely covet. Her last collection for Madewell did extremely well and I'm still bummed out I never got my hands on this dress, but thankfully her new collection for Madewell is just as adorable and soon set to be sold online and in stores starting September 22nd.

We have all read and loved her posts here on the BUST blog, as well as her keen eye for fashionable detail. We have probably even spent more than what is considered a healthy amount of time on her fashion blog, the Rebel Waltz, as she captures street styles from places like New York City, Austin, and San Francisco. But, we aren't the only ones who are taking notice. Former BUST intern Kristina Uriegas-Reyes is attracting some outside attention these days and, of course, we have to let you all know (so you can stalk her more than you already do). Read More
  First of all, I hope everyone stayed safe this weekend throughout the storm!  I also hope that you were surrounded by good food and company.  Speaking of food, recently I’ve changed my diet and decided to gradually ease into vegetarianism.  It’s really much easier than I anticipated it’d be!  For the past two weeks I’ve focused on eating more fruits and veggies daily, as well as cutting out the flesh foods.  Oh gosh, I’ve started reading more vegetarian advice blogs and noticed how everyone calls them “flesh foods.

Spirit Airlines has landed in hot water over their response to a sexual assault claim that happened to a female passenger aboard a flight earlier this month. On August 23rd 2011, Dana LaRue fell asleep on board a flight leaving Los Angeles and awoke to find a fellow passenger fondling her. “I woke up to find him pressed up against my arm, one hand on my leg, the other hand fumbling around my breasts.”   LaRue says she was paralyzed with fear and unable to report the attack right after it happened, in flight.

People love androgyny. Admit it, we love those girls who look just as good in suits as they do in dresses. You know who else loves androgyny? The industry; the fashion industry that is. When we think high fashion, I'm sure we can all expect a lady or two sashaying down the runway in something masculine, but, what about a guy? What happens when a man comes down the runway in the latest gown? The fashion world may be in oohs and ahhs and tears of gender-bending joy, but the average person may feel a little…confused.Take Andrej Prejic, for example. Read More
