Slut Walk NYC is a grassroots mission doing its part to end sexual and domestic violence to women all around the globe. The movement grew from a comment by a police officer who told women the best way to protect themselves against sexual violence would be to stop dressing like sluts. Understandably outraged, over 3000 women exercised their rights to free assembly and speech and marched to show support for the end of discrimination. Marches are now world wide with successful runs in London, New Delhi, Toronto, Nashville and other locations. Read More
I've seen these photos pop up on tumblr every so often and after catching a glimpse of her at Fashion Week looking so prim and proper, I'm sort of nostalgic for this version of her. I believe the pictures were taken right about the time she became editor-in-chief at Vogue in 1988 and I love how completely polar opposite her style was compared to today. She seemed to follow trends in her personal style much more back then, evident by so much color and texture. Read More
After a nearly two year hiatus, Tori Amos returns to the music world with Night of Hunters, a classical concept album. The September 20th release is Tori’s 12th album and first release on  Deutsche Grammophon. Taking inspirations from classical composers ranging from Bach and Schubert to Grandos and Satie, Amos updates the music tradition by putting her own modern spin on songs of love, loss, and finally acceptance and forgiveness. Amos herself has never shied away from being experimental in regards to the concepts of her albums or the musical arrangements. Read More
                   Lana Del Rey came out of nowhere. The New York singer/songwriter’s new song, “Video Games” has every music blog scrambling to figure out who she is. Del Rey, whose real name is Lizzy Grant, just rescheduled her first two shows in New York and L.A. to find bigger venues. And it seems like everyone has something to say about her Brigitte Bardot-esque bedroom hair and pouty lips. But Amy Klein isn’t a fan. Titus Andronicus’ resident female has a bone to pick with Del Rey’s message. Read More
Memphis garage-rock heavyweight Jack Oblivian ain't no one-trick pony, and on his latest release, Rat City (out now on Big Legal Mess), he's making damn sure you know. Jack Oblivian's musical resume reads like an exhaustive list of southern garage-rock history. In the ’90s he founded trashy soul-punk band the Oblivians and garage-country-by-way-of-whiskey crooners the Compulsive Gamblers with Greg Cartwright (of Reigning Sound fame). Read More
Erika Lopez, a writer and performance artist who has been featured in the pages of BUST, is in N.Y.C. with a new performance project, The Welfare Queen. Adapted from her memoir, The Girl Must Die, the new work chronicles Lopez’s descent from a Simon and Schuster-published author to a welfare and food stamp recipient, all in the matter of a few years. In 1998, Simon and Schuster published Lopez’s illustrated novel Flaming Iguanas. After breaking ties with the publishing company, Lopez started her own independent media company, Monster Girl Media.

Got Nips?

BY Olivia Saperstein in Feminism

If anyone was watching the Emmys on Sunday, you may have noticed Glee star Heather Morris' nipple slip on the red carpet.  This is hardly shocking news, as these fashion faux-pas seem to happen constantly in Hollywood. If you search "nip slip" online you can find pictures of various celebrities accidentally flashing some boob.  What I don't understand is why human beings are shocked over a little nudity these days.

As London Fashion Week rages on, I look to blogs such as KrisAtomic and Facehunter for great looks from overseas. Sadly, this post is the last of my Fashion Week photos.

Faith Evangeline of Girl World Design and the awesome Evil Pawn Jewelry has created a portion of her website that goes out to the ladies: the Girl Revolution section works to engage female positivity and be an open space where women of all ages can spread a little (or a lot) of joy about themselves and each other. Seeing a lack of female bonding in the world, Faith started hosting parties where she and her girlfriends hang out and get “girl-friendly,” doing everything from creating vision boards and jamming out, to bowling and movie outings.
