MOCCA rocks.

BY Sarah J. in General

So everyone knows that comic cons and such are sausage fests, right? I mean, what's a girl to do if she craves a little sequential art without being skeezed on or looked at like an alien life form? Thankfully, events geared towards the indie comics crowd are much more woman-friendly, and the fundraiser this past weekend for the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art was full of rad ladies doing their thing and hawking their wares.

OMG NDD!

BY Lisa in General

  Why didn’t anybody tell me it was National Doughnut Day???? I just wasted all my stomach room on cheese. Arrgh! But who am I kidding, I have no problem celebrating NDD tomorrow with an old-fashioned. Or the next day with a glazed twist. Or the day after that with a jelly-filled. Mmmm…doughnuts. And who knew the doughnut had such altruistic origins? When I get off work I’m heading straight to Doughnut Plant. Read More
  There's an installation up in Brooklyn and its so cute it brings me to tears. This installation by Artist Paul St. George is a giant Telectroscope which allows people in New York to see London, and vice versa. The lines are extremely long, but you can say hello (or cheers!) to a person across the pond. Even cuter, they have a fast track option--need a buisness meeting? marriage proposal? send a message to a friend?  Anyways, my boyfriend lives in London, so we're totally thinking of meeting up via this thing.

 Brooklyn-based jewelry designer Gabriela de la Vega created this bustier by hand, and we think it's amazing, part clothing and part jewelry and all gorgeous! Plus, she's entirely self-taught. Look what your Etsy store could turn into with a little perseverance. De la Vega's work has been featured in Vogue and Elle, and she's made jewelry for Candice Bergen, Ashanti, and Ali McGraw. Check out her website for more. Read More
  Step One: Take one Grammy award winning musician, a guy who got kicked out of a band for robbing his guitarist's house, one videocamera and a box of baby mice. Stir until cracked out.  Step Two: Get Amy and Pete imposters playing with a small rodent as a parody. Step Three: DANCE PARTY! No seriously, this remix is amazing.  This is the best home video of celebrities since that video of Bob Dylan getting drunk and almost throwing up in a car with John Lennon. What would be your step four in this takeover of the world?You know you love me. Read More

Check out Priestess Fall 2008 line and be amazed. Me likey! Laurie pointed out this funksy (yeah my special combo of funky and sexy) romper to left. Personally I'm loving the combo with the tights and heels. But I must be having a psychic connection with those busty chica's over there, because I have been craving a bright yellow sweater! I was originally thinking for the summer, but actually as a fall look, I loves it.  I really need to brighten up my standard NYC black wardrobe anyway... Read More
My brother just got his brand new Utilikilt…one of the few options for straight dudes to express their feminine side in a masculine way. And while the Utilikilt crew insists women wearing these functional skirts are cross-dressing, they agree that girls look hot in them! Any BUSTie ladies out there rockin’ a handmade Utilikilt? We’d love to see some pics. And to see more pics of men in skirts, check out http://www.utilikilts.com. Read More
