The Dirty Girls were a group of teens in the '90s who supported the riot grrrl movement and feminism, but the bulk of the Internet didn’t know about them until a short documentary surfaced on YouTube in 2013. Read More

If you aren’t already familiar with Nicolette’s particular brand of awesome, you might have forgotten you've stumbled upon her column “Big Girl Skinny World”  in Marie Claire or on Cosmo’s YouTube channel.

Well ladies, it's that time of year again, with the trees about to shed their leaves and 2015 looming right around the corner. If, like me, you have decided to revamp your wardrobe, then look no further than emerging style icon, well-spoken women's rights advocate, and all-around badass lady Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Everyone could use a little Supreme Court dowager in their closet: equal parts eccentricity, black robe, and thoughtful dissent.  If you saw Justice Ginsburg’s supreme collection of detachable collars (I mean, jabots) - you know what I’m talking about.

Chanel debuted their Spring/Summer 2015 collection on a fake Parisian boulevard within Grand Palais in Paris. The show’s clothing had a 1970s vibe with the tweed pantsuits and bright colorful blouses. It could have been a nod to the feminist movement in the seventies, since Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel’s creative director, ended the show with a feminist protest. Normally, I would be happy that feminism has reached a new audience but I don’t think the message was sent correctly. This protest made feminism a commodity. Read More
  Not gonna lie to y'all, there are definitely days when I would prefer to wear both my sweatpants and my down comforter outside my apartment instead of doing the civilized thing of putting on "normal" pants. Like my sweatpants are second class citizens or something. Rude.    ANYWAY, according to a recent study, it seems as though covering up on the reg leads to an improved body image. And not just a hoodie hiding third-day top knot hair coverage. Read More
The BUST Craftacular @ World Maker Faire is fast approaching (Sat & Sun, Sept 20 & 21!) and since we have loads of pent up excitement about it we've been chatting with some of our wonderful vendors to bide our time until then. We recently sat down with Ali and Xime from Shadowplaynyc to find out where they get the inspiration for their mind blowing cosmic designs. B: Tell us a little about yourself and your wares. What's your main goal for your business, why did you start, how would you describe your brand's personality? How did you get your name? You get the gist. Read More
  In honor of New York Fashion Week, ModCloth’s co-founder Susan Gregg Koger confronted the fashion industry with a letter about its skewed viewpoint. The online fashion company that uses independent designers and a wide assortment of vintage and unique pieces wants to remind their customers, and ladies everywhere, that fashion should instill confidence. “I look out, and it seems less about helping people find fashion they love to wear, and more about convincing them that they need to conform to one eerily consistent standard of beauty.

New York Fashion Week kicks off in two days (!!!), but it is not only for the elite, style-forward mavens of Vogue as one may think. Fashion Week is for the creative and the curious as well. “HA!” you might be thinking. “This girl clearly has never attempted to attend a fashion week show, ever.”   And you’d be right, which is exactly why I’m not going wax poetic about the genius that is Proenza Schouler or Miu Miu — but instead, focus on the fashion that is so very you.

Every August, we get ultra-excited about the AfroPunk Festival, which takes place in Brooklyn, N.Y.C. The festival is a two-day celebration of music, fashion, art and culture. Aside from being packed with eye-popping musical performances and insanely good vibes, it's *also* a convergence of some of the most beautiful, stylish folks on the planet. We swear you won't find a better crowd for people-watching anywhere in the world.  This year's fest was full of crazy-cute outfits, colorful prints, beautiful hairdos, and fresh accessories, all of which left us feeling totally inspired.
