I recently moved to a tiny apartment in Brooklyn, and I had to leave more than half my wardrobe at home in Tennessee. It’s been a rough reality because I absolutely love clothes. With fall, my favorite fashion season, approaching, I’ve been worried about how I’m going to stay stylin’ with a significantly reduced collection of clothing. It’s not quite time for me to beg my parents to send me my winter clothes and figure out where to store my short-shorts, so I decided to find a way to make my limited wardrobe stretch into the next few months.

There’s a brand-new building going up in my neighborhood, about a block from my subway stop. I’m not even going to bother explaining what that means. If you're a woman, you know the deal.
As I approach, I feel my shoulders rounding forward, my gait shortening and shuffling. My eyes are Super-Glued to the sidewalk. I want to hide, but I can’t get to the subway unless I go down this particular block, and here they are, and here comes the low whistle and:
“Why you walking so fast, honey?”
“Juicy, juicy thighs. Read More

Ah, wedding dresses. What a bride chooses to wear to her wedding is a sacred choice. Different colors and different shapes can represent how a gal chooses to enter into a lifetime with the person she loves. Every outfit is as unique as each woman herself; a really good wedding dress can help to express the ways in which she and her partner love one another. So can location, for that matter. Whether it’s a church or a beach or in the middle of the woods, the place at which couple chooses to wed is crucial. Read More

Buffi already launched a fashion line in Dubai, and is now releasing a book, Make-It-Rock Dress Design through Storey Publishing.

The iconic artist’s clothing has been locked away for almost 60 years, first under the guard of Kahlo’s husband Diego Rivera and later of close friend Dolores Olmedo. After Olmedo passed away in 2004, the Mexican painter’s wardrobe was finally released for the first time in decades.
Frida Kahlo is widely known for her striking self-portraits and the influence of her Mexican heritage in her paintings. Her wardrobe also demonstrates her appreciation of Mexican culture, as the exhibit holds many of her long skirts and corsetry. Read More

Get ready for a long weekend, BUSTies! Many offices and workplaces around the country will close on Monday for Memorial Day, a holiday commemorating fallen service men and women. This holiday, along with honoring the millions that have died for our country, marks the impromptu start of summer. Though the season doesn’t officially start until June 20th this year, Monday heralds the imminence of those hazy, lazy days of summer: days full of beach trips, cocktails, outdoor concerts, roof parties, and (my favorite!) picnics.

We have to admit, there's something a bit predictable about donning dresses that look like they're made of flowers once the clouds start to lift and the mercury starts to rise. Despite the fact that it's been done before, there's just something about floral prints that goes hand in hand with nice weather. And today in New York, where the high is slated to be in the mid-80s, it's the perfect excuse to indulge in a little flower power. Florals don't have to look dowdy; there are plenty of fresh options on the market to help you bloom. Read More

I'll buy any piece of clothing—socks, underwear, dress, t-shirt—if there are stripes on it. My fondness for stripes probably has something to do with my love for repetition; I find it to be very calming. Also, I think stripes make people look cool, and I like to think that my coolness (on a scale of 1=low to 10=high) goes from a 1 to a 3 when I wear stripes. Pretty impressive.
Here's a small roundup of striped dresses that I've got my eyes on.

Dress with Gold Applique, $59.90, zara.com

How many times have you stood in front of your closet, staring into space? You know that feeling that comes with the familiar little voice. I haven't got a thing to wear.
Have no fear, the alum from All Star Challenge, Berber Soepboer and Michiel Schuurman created the Colour-In Dress. Now, instead of fussing over a garment that's the wrong color or pattern...you can make your own! Reminiscent of coloring books and doodling in class margins, it seems almost retro-y. Not to mention, with a rainbow of colors, the dress can look flirty and sweet. Read More
