Well this is awesome - two students from Cornell University have created a mannequin modeled after real plus sized bodies, building the most accurate curvy shape the fashion industry has ever used.
That sounds a little strange (why would an accurate plus-size mannequin be revolutionary?) but until now, most mannequins for larger clothes were made by just magnifying the general proportions of smaller mannequins. That means the proportions of plus-sized mannequins ... Read More

We still haven't gotten over the horrendous comments and actions of fat-hate coming from Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries. Luckily we can always count on Ellen to poke fun at such insanely ridiculous situations like these, and that's just what she did on her show last Friday. She has one thing to say to Abercrombie: "Fitch, please!" Not only is this clip hilarious, DeGeneres ends with a truly inspiring anti-fat-hate message about true beauty. She extends ... Read More
It's almost summer, which is the perfect time to share this adorable, Coney Island lookbook from designer Julie Mollo. Mollo is one of my favorite independent designers. She's cute as a button and her style reflects that as she designs whimsical circle skirts and bold accessories for girls unfraid of colorful fashion. Created to showcase her circle skirt line, this lookbook is perfectly summer-ready and the skirts are so cute, ... Read More

Jaws dropped when pictures were released of Zooey Deschanel sans her signature bangs at the Met Gala. Not that it looks bad or anything…as if that ageless, blue-eyed dollface could look anything less than adorable. I don’t think it’s in her programming.

I know y'all have seen the ridiculous ass-backwards looks from the red carpet gala at the Costume Institute Ball. I will NOT bore you with talk about how the glitterati got it all WRONG. Punk is not putting a thousand dollars of studs on a three thousand dollar Burburry jacket (I'm looking at you Sienna Miller). If you haven't seen the pix, check them out here and come back to me laterz.
The Metropolitan Museum is super important and does a great job preserving ... Read More

These days it can feel like vintage stores are a dime a dozen. That’s why when an awesome one comes along, you have to grab it with two hands and shop the hell out of it. Cue Miss Ruth’s Time Bomb!
Allow me to let you in on a little secret – Miss Ruth’s Time Bomb is da bomb (could not help myself, sorry)! And lucky you – she will be visiting at BUST’s Craftacular on May 4th in Brooklyn!
Come feast your eyes on ... Read More
