“Black Moon New York,” opening this Friday at Sloan Fine Art’s site/109, celebrates the fabulously freaky artwork of four female artist friends. Marion Peck, Camille Rose Garcia, Elizabeth McGrath, and Jessicka Addams. The group collaborated with gallerist Alix Sloan last year in Los Angeles with a two-day exhibition, “Black Moon,” that was inspired by their successful and satisfying careers and their rich relationships with each ...

So, it's September. I've been in denial of this fact for a few weeks because a) wasn't it just 90 degrees and humid a week ago here on the east coast? and b) I'm not going back to school so it can't be fall yet, right?  Alas, it is now more than two weeks into September and the official first day of fall is just within reach. It is finally time to unearth your favorite scarves, mittens, leather jackets and knee boots. Over here at BUST we wanted to craft you ... Read More
I grew up in the quiet Chicago neighborhood Hyde Park, surrounded by the University of Chicago. For the most part, Halloween was intimate and fun: just a few of us kids going from door to door with our professor parents collecting candy from nice people. But I always stayed clear of one block.    Harper Avenue. It was the hotbed of all things Halloween, and while I ran, my peers flooded the small street. Why? Because it was truly scary. One image is ... Read More

  Oh my dear. Say it isn’t so. The designers over at sexy costume source Yandy are using a terrible misinterpretation of “twerking” to sell outfits. In a section they call “Costumes to Twerk In,” the venders market costumes that expose the buttocks. Of course, the first is an knock-off Miley Cyrus VMA costume called “Furry Party Animal Halloween Costume.” The other costumes have absolutely nothing to do with twerking ... Read More

  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. I mean, why suffer with maintaining a place to live when you could just as easily turn it into a magical wonderland?    But ... 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 ... 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 ... Read More
