Yves Saint-Laurent

BY Team Intern in General

 I was thinking of a more interesting title for this, but what more can be said than that a great man has died.  My love for fashion, especially the haute couture houses, came not through shopping, but through lots and lots of reading.  But for those interested in learning more about YSL, I suggest starting out with Slate's picture gallery which is dedicated to YSL today. xo Claire the ...

Jump around

BY Dawn in General

Now that it's Summer, it's time for all our favorite sunny day games and pastimes: kites, slip and slide, kickball games in the park, and...double dutch! Personally, I was never able to master the dual ropes, barely had enough rhythm for one in fact. But San Francisco's jezebels of jump rope, Double Dutchess, don't have that problem. Lisa B. wrote about these ladies in BUST a few years back. If you've never had the opportunity to catch them live, check them hip and ... Read More

Crack is Wack

BY Laurie in General

This is just so sad, Tatum O'neal was busted again for drugs. When I was a kid, Paper Moon was my absolute favorite movie, I loved her cool, tom boy antics, and then bad News Bears come out- jeez, that was a masterpiece as far as I was concerned! Anyway, I guess all that  smoking and drinking on screen did lead to the addictions she can't seem to shake at 44 years old. I feel bad ... Read More
