I didn't make it to as many CMJ shows as I would've liked, but I was able to catch the lovely singer Emmy the Great, who I've wanted to see for a while now, and Wild Moccasins, a Texas pop band I've missed seeing since moving from Texas to NYC. The two pictures above and below are  Emmy the Great, who I was happy brought some glitter and sparkle to a daytime show. It's never too early in my book. I was also totally digging her patterned tights. Few people could make those prints go together so perfectly in color and pattern. Read More
I've seen costume ideas everywhere I turn from blogs and websites to magazines and movies. I've also seen and helped people put together some awesome looking costumes at the vintage store I work for as well. This year, I've decided to be a Pan Am stewardess. To be honest, I kind of already dress like a 60's stewardess or secretary most of the time so it's not too much of a stretch. I picked up a Pan Am bag recently and now I'm just trying to figure out a hat to pull it all together. I might end up making one out of construction paper or cardboard and felt. Read More

DIY Fake Lashes

BY debbie in Style

Need some gigantic eyelashes sometime soon, say, for Halloween, and don’t want to pay almost $10 for them?  Well I got the tutorial for you!  I found a tutorial on youtube on how to make your own false lashes with just a few materials that most people have around and got to makin’. Materials: Another fake eyelash (this is just to give you a guide at how long you need to make the lash. Read More
The creators of gothic lolita, harajuku, and ganguro are back! But, this time more  laid back and adventure-y. Don't worry though, they're still plenty kawaii and filled with all the layers and patterns we know, admire, and love. Of course, I'm talking about a new trend in Japan called Yama Girls.No, no it's not a mass of leather clad Japanese girls on Yamaha motorcycles zipping around Tokyo,(though that would be awesome!), this style ditches all the bells and whistles that the others have.

Honestly, I don't quite have the patience for most D.I.Y.s, but once in a while something in a D.I.Y. blog or feature in BUST will catch my eye as something worth attempting. Color me surprised when I realized that almost every D.I.Y. post or recipe in A Beautiful Mess was looking totally amazing/do-able. There's much more to the blog than just D.I.Y. though. This fantastic blog from blogger Elsie Larson is one of my new favorites simply because it's filled with everything  from D.I.Y. tips/projects and delicious recipes to fabulous outfit posts and gorgeous photos.

Tavi Gevinson, founder of Rookie, recently sat down with founder and editor-in-chief of Lula magazine, Leith Clark, for Nowness.com to discuss a little bit of everything from fashion and magazines to feminism and Miranda July. Nowness.com cuts off quite a bit of the hour and a half conversation between these two fascinating ladies, but Tavi posted the rest of the conversational interview on StyleRookie.com. I'm really glad she posted the interview in its entirety since their thoughts on fashion and feminism about halfway through is what I found the most interesting to read. Read More
  I recently discovered Founders & Followers, the fancy online shop with a million "must add to my wish list" kind of items by some of my favorite designers, along with awesome ones I'd never heard of. Besides just being an online shop, the appropriately named store is sort of a mishmash of designers, artists, photo shoots, and workshop features of where the designers get their work groove on.

I tend to read blogs from girls of all shapes and sizes, admiring style across the board. I know size can be an issue in the fashion industry, but in a way, I thought the blogosphere was different. I didn't think that stylishly curvy ladies needed to segregate themselves in the way the industry segregates them. Examples being that weird Vogue Curvy section of VogueItalia.com or any overall purely curvy-dominated fashion spreads, which brings attention to girls of other sizes, but in a strange, separating way.

This week's Blog of the Week is by another blogger I had the pleasure of meeting at the Blogger Picnic a few weeks back. I had only recently come across her blog, Tick Tock Vintage, but one of the things I instantly loved about it, besides the awesome fashion, was the adorable header. The bright and cheerful graphic makes the blog super inviting for some reason and sets the tone for blogger, Veronika's style, which seems to be the perfect mix of sophisticated and sweet. Unafraid of patterns, she loves to mix it up with funky jewelry and adorable hair bows. Read More
