I was extremely stoked to get an invitation to attend the Rodarte Fall 2011 Runway show today.
Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the creative sisters behind the label presented a dreamy and inspirational collection that was very "prairie princess" inspired. I saw a lot of hand crafted embellishments, embroidered geometric patches and sweaters that totally looked like hand knit 1970's relics from a lucky thrift score.
The palette was all earthy taupe's, pale blues and greens, with pops of black. Long coats with weird cut outs and interesting collars. Read More
In high school, were (or are) you a nerdy chic girl who secretly coveted the varsity jackets that all the jocks wore? Did you want one, but didn’t want to go out for a sport that you hated, knowing that even if you got a varsity jacket to love it wouldn’t truly represent you?
Now the fine t-shirt and print designers at Death Traitors have heard your pleas, and are releasing a super cute black varsity jacket that perfectly suits Death Traitors style and outlook. Read More

Russia's Orthodox Church recently advocated more modest dress; top church official Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin, who previously said that mini skirts "provoke" men, complained of women "either scantily clad or painted like a clown"- strong words, the article points out, in a country like Russia, where dressing up, wearing a lot of makeup, and good grooming are often the norm for women.
Though this conversation isn't new, it does bring up issues about navigating the world of clothing and fashion through a gendered lens. Read More
The depth of my love for the brilliantly outrageous Lady Gaga is unlimited, immeasurable, and difficult to articulate. I love how she seeks to express herself, combining her musical talents with fashion, theater, and Dadaism to create something interesting and new. Her songs are actually very well written, with their use of clever wordplay (because who doesn’t remember “bluffin’ with my muffin?”), combining glamour and decadence, and yet still be truthful, poignant, honest, and human with ballads such as Speechless and Wonderful.

Santi White, better known by her stage name Santigold, is definitely celebrated for her unique melodies, reminiscent of Pixies and inspired by 1980’s pop and Siouxsie and the Banshees, and yet completely her own. Having gained acclaim for her fearless self-expression, it is no surprise that her personal aesthetic reflects her eclectic artistry.
Shipping to stores starting February are some very lovely looking Vans, the product of a collaboration between Santigold and the company known for its beloved sneakers and skateboarding shoes. Read More

Former Bust intern, Buffi Jashanmal, was one of the designers called in to help design seven dresses for Lady Gaga’s upcoming music video. Avant-garde fashion label House of Diehl was asked to make the dresses in only five days, and Buffy was called in to help complete the nearly impossible task. Some designers pay up to $100,000 for Gaga to wear their clothes, so this is a huge deal for unknown fashion designers looking for a big break.
The designers weren’t given any details about the video, which will be for a song off Gaga’s new album, “Born This Way”. Read More
