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.

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.
Marine Dress, $29, joefresh.com
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
