This past week I was able to catch some of the most stylish South by Southwesters walking to and from the massive amount of shows and parties going on. From 6th Street to Waterloo Records, spring style was popping up everywhere. While I hear it's still chilly where I live in NYC, my hometown, Austin, Tx, decided to skip spring altogether and head right for summer sunshine. While it's both a blessing and a curse, one thing's for sure: it sure is refreshing to see spring dresses, flowers, and sun hats after months of just mittens, sweaters, and overcoats. Read More
I’m the kind of person who hates delicate jewelry. I don’t wear much jewelry in general, but if I do, I like for it to stand out. That’s why I’m officially obsessed with this whimsically wonderful ring designer, Maud Traon. I stumbled upon photos of her amazing designs via tumblr and I’m in love with the craziness of each one I see. These eccentric pieces are definite conversation starters. Read More
Bill Cunningham New York is a wonderful documentary directed by Richard Press that explores the idiosyncratic street photographer, Bill Cunningham. The camera follows the octogenarian around on his bicycle as he zooms in and out of traffic, and as he stops frequently to shoot interesting looking fashions on the streets. He’s been working as a street shooter for the New York Times since 1978. Ever since I can remember, I’ve loved looking at his pages in the Times, and it’s always a thrill to see him in his ubiquitous blue jacket. Read More

Not only does the Midwest usually gets a bad rep when it comes to style, but there also seems to be a shortage of really good men's blogs lately. Enter The Midwestyle. The name is catchy, the photos are great, and, of course, the boys are cute. Their style veers somewhere in the realm of classically preppy lumberjack (is that a thing?) with a penchant for mixing vintage and designer with overall good deals. Their vision is “To show that men in the Midwest can have style, look sharp and do it on a budget. Read More

Rebecca Turbow Fall 2011

BY Laurie in Style

As we continue to freeze our butts off up here in NYC while patiently awaiting Spring, we could not help but notice the fabulous looks that Rebecca Turbow has in the works for Fall 2011 – these fashion people live in the future! I love the gothy palette (hello gray and black, we're friends already) on these mod little numbers, and the model here is just too adorable. Photographed by BUST contributor Aliya Naumoff, I can't wait to get my hands on that cape, or maybe that trench? http://www.rebeccaturbow. Read More
Reason #1092 we love Evil Pawn Jewelry: they named a necklace after our very own Director of Sales and Marketing. The bold and elegant Black Emily Necklace -- made from black gems framed by a Victorian lace black metal frame -- is "a reminder of people, places, and things that are far away from you but always with you.

Rodarte Fall 2011 Collection

BY Laurie in Style

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
