Ah, Internets! You so funny. In this wonderful video, Gwen Verdon's awesome Bob Fosse dance number, "Mexican Breakfast" (??) from some time in the 70s is given subtitles to explain what each dance move is trying to say, and it's just one of those wonderful things you can watch over and over and over again. If this doesn't make you laugh on a crabby Monday morning, you should probably go see the doctor. Check out the vid after the jump, and enjoy.
You ... Read More

It's no secret that Project Runway hasn't been good for a while -- the designers are boring, there's zero drama since they kicked off Johnny Meth Addict, and snarky fashion cops Nina and Michael are usually MIA. But perhaps most importantly, the outfits themselves are a big yawn -- have you seen any winning designs recently that you couldn't go buy at your local Banana Republic? So if you're going through kickass fashion withdrawal like myself, check out this ... Read More

It's not a secret that many of the ladies here at BUST headquarters have a fashion crush on local New York City designer Wendy Mullin and her Built by Wendy line. Let's just say the crush-o-meter was turned up to eleven when we saw her newest collaboration with 1800wheelchair: the Built by Wendy Wheelchair Poncho. With its easy slip-over-the-head fit, cute plaid lining, and longer front for ample leg coverage, this poncho is definitely a first of its kind in both ... Read More

Can you guess what I am?
I am really, really good at dreamcatching now and you can be to - check out the Dec/Jan issue of BUST when it drops for my super easy instructions. I wish I could wear this everyday. Not only did everyone that looked at me smize but I smiled so much back at 'em that my face hurt the next day! Long live Halloween. I was seriously in awesome-rager-afterglow for two days. I may wear this again next year, make some fake weed nugs and go as a ... Read More

No, this one isn't caused by that shirtless picture of Daniel Craig that randomly popped up in your last Google image search. This particular bizarre feeling in your south towns can actually be from your pants.
Apparently if your skinny jeans are a little too, uh, skinny, they can cause meralgia paresthetica or 'tingling leg syndrome.' It comes from excess pressure being put on your femeral nerve by restrictive denim, and it only gets worse if you pair them ... Read More

If you really like food, or things that are shaped like other things, these purses might be perfect.
Hambags by Hannah Havana of Garudio Studiage are little vinyl purses and wallets shaped like food. Choose between a hot dog, a chicken leg and a burger for the purse, or pick up a Whopper Wallet, which is shaped like - you guessed it - the very fast food favorite it was named for. They all come with a chain strap (the wallet has a chain wrist loop) and zip ... Read More
