Wildfang, whose name means “tomboy” in German, is an awesome clothing brand that offers up some killer gender neutral outfits. On Facebook they describe themselves as, “an online shop curating some of the raddest tomboy fashions—from wingtips to bow ties and button downs.” Wildfang recently tapped actress Evan Rachel Wood to star in their new video campaign, and the result is amazing.
The film tells women to be fearless, showing Wood tackle everything that crosses her path. Read More

Springtime shopping has officially begun, so in order to help our lovely BUSTies we did a little searching for you all.

Women have been contributing to military efforts since the military was a thing. During the Revolutionary War women cut off their hair, bound their breasts and joined in the fight - always with the fear of being found out. In Civil War they would enlist under male names; some would transport messages and battle plans in hollowed-out turnips. There are currently 1,853,690 female veterans out in the world.
With that historical background of women kicking ass, you'd think there would be parades for them on Veterans' Day. Read More

Punxsutawney Phil, the asshole he is, told us this week that we're going to be enduring six more weeks of winter. Great, you think, as you empty the slush that somehow made its way inside your boots. If only we could all just crawl back into the ground and sleep for a month and a half. Groundhog jerk.
So yes, you're stuck in your winter wardrobe for what looks like the foreseeable future. Read More

Plus Size Clothing Swaps Make Secondhand Sexy
Clothing swaps are the best. Reducing, reusing, and recycling all in the name of a brand-new-to-you pair of glitter pants? Yes, please! However, if you’re not the same size as your buddies, it’s easy to get left on the sidelines, with nothing but a printed scarf to dry your tears. Thankfully, that’s changing—large and most definitely in-charge ladies across the country are joining forces to host fashion swaps that cater to sizes 12 and up. Read More

Are you as sick of the endless lingerie search, foraging for a larger cup size that is not boring and/or overpriced? I wear a bra size 34F and let me tell you, finding a bra that is comfortable, supportive, and cute all for an affordable price is a true pain. The boutique stores with small lacy bras for smaller sizes just don't offer the kind of support larger breasts need and the large chains like Victoria Secret and Macy's are always throwing diamonds and bows all over everything. Also, I certainly can't afford the intricate bras from the stores specializing in larger breast sizes. Read More

J. Crew is right up there with Vineyard Vines at the list of the preppiest clothing stores where the skinniest, most photo-ready-looking people shop. However, given the quality and price tag of the J. Crew brand, I never would have thought they’d introduce clothing that mothers and elementary school age children can share. However, that seems to be just what they’ve done by creating a size 000, which is basically a triple extra small. Read More

Holiday sales are my favorite part of capitalism. Really, the Independence Day of our great nation can’t be celebrated in a better way in my opinion.
As a thrifty nickel, I’ve been on the lookout for the places with the best sales on the July 4th weekend. Here are a couple of tips that have worked for me in past when searching for the best deals.
1. Coupons are a girl's best friend
Retail Me Not has saved me a lot of money. Many stores offer coupons online for busy weekends and put them on sites like Retail Me Not and Groupon. Read More

New technology to battle technological dependence? Makes sense.
When I had a Smartphone I was prone to constantly checking my various apps out of fear that I would miss something that was happening. In fact, it is so easy to be sucked into a world of notifications and constant streams of information that people tend to tune the real world out completely. This trend is the inspiration for a new clothing line called FOCUS created by Japanese conceptual fashion designer Kunihiko Morinaga. Read More
