The temperatures continue to rise and the sun is making its way out from behind the April clouds, meaning it's nearly time to bust out your raddest sunglasses. There's no better way to avoid eye strain, hide a hangover, or masquerade as a reclusive famous person. Below are some of our favorite options for this summer, and since we tend to go through pairs pretty quickly (read: accidentally sit on them in the car), they're all ultra-cheapies.
These bright and ... Read More

At a recent dinner hosted by publishing company Penguin Books and clothing brand Whistles, Whistles CEO Jane Shepherdson stated that it was time for the fashion industry to “reclaim feminism.” Her point is well taken: the fashion industry is one of the few that is dominated by women, yet it is rarely regarded as a feminist industry.This idea got me thinking about the nature of the fashion industry and women’s interest in clothing in general. ...

The Hunger Games is officially a phenomenon. People of all ages and tastes are loving it and with such a twisted plot and kickass heroine, who can blame them? America is geeking out together and I'm loving every minute of it. Not only are the fans varied, but so is the film's fashion. From district to kooky capital, there is surprising inspiration to be had. Although most capital citizens are a silly, ignorant bunch, they do get to wear some of the ... 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.

Frontwoman, bassist, producer, painter, music video director, designer, mom, and certified badass are pretty sweet gigs to have in your repertoire. Now, Sonic Youth founding member Kim Gordon dishes on her latest project, a 12-piece collection she collaborated on with Dorothée Loermann of clothing label Surface To Air. We're especially feeling the orange wrap dress and snakeskin boots--anybody want to lend us a-few-to-several-hundred dollars?

It's a funny time of year. We're on the cusp of spring and way sick of sluggin' around in our winter layers. Fashion Month is in full swing, acting as a sort of rejuvenating dose of inspiration to fight the winter bleh's. Many trendsters take flights of fashion fancy in this transitional time, which can be both good and bad. Let's decide if these trends are fun or fug.
Like I said, it's the time of year when winter seems ... Read More

Iconic Brit jewelers (and longtime BUST favorites), Tatty Devine have sparked a huge response on Twitter in the last 24 hours after posting these pictures on their blog highlighting the dubious similarities between some of their classic designs and those currently on sale at UK high street chain, Claires Accessories.
Coming at already challenging times for all UK retailers, these cheaper mass produced versions pose a real threat to ... Read More

Until yesterday, I didn't know that camel toe was a problem that you needed a product to solve, but if you've been wondering how to stop your clothes from displaying your crotch crack, the Smoothgroove is here! Fashionista is reporting---with an understandable tinge of disbelief---that the front-wedgie-eliminating wonder (created by a woman named Susan Laurie) is finally available for purchase. SmoothGroove is like a sports cup that covers the vulva to make ... Read More

I love AbFab in a "naming-my-future-daughter-Saffron" kind of way. The British sitcom about two fashion-obsessed middle-aged career women is freakin' hilarious and perfectly acted by Jennifer Saunder (Edina)---who also created the show--- and Joanna Lumley (Patsy).
So it was absolutely awesome to see that, in honor of their return to TV this year, the fabulous and funny champagne-guzzling, fashion-worshipping Brits are making a splash as the cover girls for ... Read More

I have kind of a weird relationship with makeup. As a kid I hated it because my mom made me an enabler to her Macy’s makeup counter addiction: I’d fidget for what seemed like hours while a woman in a white lab coat paid what sounded like empty compliments to my mother’s skin as she applied "eyebrow gel" or something equally unnecessary-seeming. I remained completely disinterested in wearing it myself until two years ago, when I discovered the ... Read More
