The G.L.O.B. (Gorgeous Ladies of BUST) love Fringe Salon in N.Y.C.’s Lower East Side for many reasons: namely, because owner Amy Schiappa has been fabulously cutting/dyeing/styling our hair for almost 20 years. Seriously!
Aside from being a BFF to BUST since our inception (awwwww), Fringe is the kind of business that this world needs more of. Besides being woman-owned and a frequent user of real-gal models, Fringe caters to on-the-go creative types like ourselves, who want to look fly but still stay true to our personal style. Read More

Baddiewinkle’s Instagram captures all of the social media lingo, poses, trends, and hashtags so well that it sometimes seems like satire. This sassy lady promises to “steal your man” and even strives to be on the Ellen show while posting psychedelic selfies and twerking.
It’s almost as thought she went through a teen girl’s Instagram and duplicated her wardrobe, poses, and captions.
Exhibit A: Baddiewinkle reppin a peace sign and a shirt that says "90’s child" with the caption: “sup. Read More

Honestly, it’s getting really redundant for me to keep repeating that there is not enough plus-sized visibility in fashion market. Visibility in advertising translates to validation of existence for fringe groups who are normally not represented accurately in the media. That’s why it’s important that all bodies are represented in fashion advertising. If we were to draw conclusions about what the average woman looks like just from fashion editorials and runway shows, fat women would not even exist. Read More

It's that awkward time of year when you don't know whether to wear a sweater or a jacket, jeans or leggings, which begs the question: pouch or purse?
Married to the Mob makes that decision painfully easy. This line of totes adorbs pouches comes in flashy/trashy metallics with bitchin' (not to mention relatable!) feminist phrases printed on them. Such as:
Are the cute bags reminders? Suggestions? Hints as to their contents?
Keep in mind the company was started by a woman who longed to see the attitude of street style her male counterparts flaunted with such machismo designed for women. Read More

12 is the new 16. This is what my branding professor preaches during class, while we watch Axe commercials. And it’s true that marketing strategists are targeting kids at younger and younger ages with “sexy” products, expecting little boys to care about attracting little girls with their nearly-natural musk. Even amongst those of us who are still shy the pertinent hormones, sex has become a commercial object. That commercialization is first forced upon girls when they begin wearing bras. Read More

This one is for all the fat girls that have ever walked into a store on a mission to get at least ONE thing before they leave, knowing that the search is probably futile. For all the girls that spent four hours in a dressing room shucking shirt after dress after pair of jeans off, knowing before they even plucked the item off the rack that it probably wasn’t going to fit.

Lorde learned a lesson last year after criticizing some of her fellow pop stars Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez for having “unfeminist lyrics” or for being too “unobtainable and flawless.” It's safe to say that Lorde wasn’t trying to be catty or harsh, and seems more like the kind of girl who was more interested in holding people accountable and reminding us that celebrities aren’t perfect. We know she has definitely changed her tune since hanging out with Taylor Swift and many rumors of their blooming bromance. Read More

This is the cutest thing I have seen today:
Major props to American Eagle Outfitters for making a fake line for animals (complete with a mockumentary) to help raise money for rescue organizations.
...their creative team deserves to be showered in sloppy, wonderful, St. Bernard kisses.
Also, the “American Beagle Outfitters Dogumentary” is a must-watch! Really high caliber parody. Sample soundbyte: “Do you know what it is like to go to the mall, and all they have for you is Halloween costumes? That’s what [my dog] is dealing with. Read More
