D.C. native and Brooklyn-based designer Ellen Van Dusen is Dusen Dusen. Her label is bursting with vibrant textiles featuring hand-drawn designs which complement her sleek, no-fuss shapes that say "relax—you can do this; I understand you." At the crux of Van Dusen’s designs are sought-after elements of comfort and accessibility without the sacrifice of personal style or dignity.
The line is as wonderfully unpretentious and refreshingly laid-back as the designer herself. Read More

There’s something about summer that just makes me want to shop, and right now I’m way into this adorable collection from Brooklyn-based designer Meghan Sebold’s label Afia. The pieces are totally cute and colorful—prints and pleats galore!—but it gets even better. The fabric is sustainedly sourced in West Africa and the line’s handsewn at a women’s co-op in Ghana, providing fair wages to rural villagers. Read More

Here are just a few fashionable New Yorkers that I've come across in the past few weeks, including one fabulous former Project Runway contestant!

She works with a friend of mine at the awesome Billy's Antiques on Houston street in NYC. Below is the wonderful designer Austin Scarlett of Project Runway Season 1. Read More

I've been wearing the same damn swimsuit since 2005, and my too-small bikini bottom is causing me more anxiety than if I were to swim with the sharks or go on the Jersey Shore boardwalk. Still, swimsuit shopping isn't my forte; I hate the paper crotch strips and I'm just too lazy. But these monster swimsuits from Iron Fist may finally convince me to ditch my dingy bikini. These freaky tops and bottoms are sure to get you attention - just be prepared to say, "Ahem, my eyes are up HERE...oh, wait."
Thanks to these swimsuits, I've made my selection for Friday Movie Night... Read More
Most blog-reading folks know The Satorialist, the now-famous street style blog by Scott Schuman, but do you know The Satorialtwist? This clever blog splices pictures from The Satorialist to create some interesting, hilarious, and even cute outfits (such as the one above). I'm not sure how Schuman feels about the blog, but I like to think he'd be flattered considering the disclaimer Harry Woodrow, The Satorialtwist's creater, posts on the site, which says, "All images are from The Sartorialist and used without permission but with love and respect.

Our favorite "doen't give a fashion fuck" actress, Helena Bonham Carter is Marc Jacobs' latest muse and model for his Fall 2011 collection. Some of these photos are not exactly the most conventionally attractive, but that's exactly what makes them amazing. Right now the fashion world is oohing and ahhing over Elle Fanning's MJ campaign, but these photos are the real gems. A true style icon is someone who beats to the tune of her own drum. No one encompasses that more than this lovely lady. Read More

Here at BUST Magazine, we consider ourselves to be some pretty green ladies. But in a world inundated with vegan-this and eco-friendly that, we also realize it’s hard to know which green products are the best of the best.
As the resident vegan intern, cool eco-friendly stuff is close to my heart. That’s why in anticipation of our first ever Earth Issue, I’ll be testing a ton of my favorite beauty products, clothing and food. Check out my eco-chic review series on BUST. Read More
I can't decide if this Steve Buscemi dress by Black Milk is ridiculous or awesome..or ridiculously awesome. I happen to think Steve Buscemi is amazing. He's hilarious in a weird sort of way and I kind of find him secretly attractive in GhostWorld (..Right?!..No? Am I alone here?), but do I want to wear his face on my boobs? I don't know about that..
Buy one here if you dare and happen to have an extra $100 lying around.
And just for kicks, here's the hilariously creepy tumblr, Chicks With Steve Buscemeyes, that's gotten quite popular lately. Read More
