  I’m going to be honest here: I don’t know a lot about Martha Stewart (really, almost nothing). But from what I’ve seen, I’m a fan. Somehow she makes cleaning my room seem less ominous, as though perhaps my best gal pals, my fiance, and maybe my mom could turn housekeeping into a craft fair. Read More
As a fashion lover, but also someone who seems to be perpetually late, there is nothing I value more than solid clothing pieces that I can throw on and go, while still looking chic and put together. One of my favorite tricks: the maxi skirt. Maxi skirts are so versatile; they can be great for going out when paired with a crop top and heels/boots, or casual when paired with a tank or button down and sandals. Either way, you’ll look great and feel super comfortable, while (hopefully, in my case) arriving on time. Read More
Fall is in the air, my friends! That is to say...I am officially wearing a sweater because it is actually chilly out and not because I only own cardigans! There is something about this seasonal change that always gives me a little creative boost. The laziness and slowness of summer officially give way to an inner desire to become Martha Stewart. So enough with these metaphors! Let's get to the good stuff and make cute things out of felt!!! 1.) Wool iPhone Sleeve I wasn't joking about the felt thing! These take only a few minutes to make and super customizable, so get creative, yo! 2. Read More
November is my favorite time of the year, from pumpkin-spice everything to the gluttony of Thanksgiving and, of course, my birthday! When it comes to the holiday season, I love buying presents for others (and for myself!), so I thought I'd put together a collection of some of my favorite items of the moment, many from adorable Etsy shops I recommend exploring. Hopefully they can give you ideas for Christmas shopping to come! My first items are these fanciful, handmade pastel oxfords. All the pastels are completely covetable, but I'm really digging the pink ones. Read More
Fall! It’s the worst. My skin feels like newspaper, I can’t find my house keys in the early-evening darkness, and pumpkin-flavored things make me want to die. Really. If you, too, would rather be schvitzing at the beach than shivering in layers of tweed, here are a couple treats to make it through this gnarly season.   Lush Oatifix Soothing Banana Mask, $6.95 Blustery early-October breezes are the stuff of romance for many fall-oholics, but they also turn my face into a peely, cracky, and painful mess.

  Tomorrow marks the official start of the fall season, and I, for one, am super excited, and not just because my birthday is two weeks away. I live for fall: smelling pumpkin spice lattes and hot chocolate wafting through the air, while wearing my favorite leather jacket, black jeans and boots. Oh, how I adore boots! To celebrate the start of fall, the ladies here at BUST shared their favorite (and for some, their least favorite) things about the season.     Debbie, Editor-In-Chief: I hate everything about fall. Fall = fail.

Here in New York, the first signs of fall manifest in our wardrobes. Temperatures have dropped out of "sweat torture" territory, and cardigans are creeping out of our closets as things cool down. The pinnacle of cool, though, has got to be the World Maker Faire; on September 29 and 30, the grounds around the New York Hall of Science in Queens will transform into the world's largest DIY festival. You are cordially invited to join us at the third annual BUST Magazine Craftacular at World Maker Faire New York 2012. Read More

From the plush greenery right down to the dog-wolf companions, it’s no wonder the internet is buzzing with speculations that Riccardo Tisci drew inspiration from Game of Thrones for the Givenchy Fall 2012 Couture Collection. The collection is pretty incredible in and of itself even if you aren’t a fan of the show, but if you do tune in every week, this is a sure-fire way to bring a smile to your face.
