I remember getting American Girl catalogs every few weeks in the mail when I was a little girl. I would beg my parents for a doll, and one Christmas I found Samantha waiting underneath my tree. Despite my love for turn-of-the-century girl Samantha, I always wanted one of the My American Girl dolls--the customizable ones with contemporary clothes and range of skin and hair colors. But I never saw one that looked just like me, with medium-tone skin, brown hair, and ... Read More
If you didn’t already know, Childish Gambino is the rapping alter-ego of Community star Donald Glover. His newest mixtape, Royalty, dropped yesterday, and it features RZA, Ghostface Killa, and Beck. But it's the voice who ends Royalty that really has us BUST-ies excited.  The fabulous Tina Fey appears on the final track, “Real Estate,” spitting some sick rhymes. With her classically awkward style, Fey half-raps “We droppin’ racks ... Read More

Well,  now almost two years later, Andy South is an out and proud transgender woman, named Nong Ariyaphon Southiphong. Yesterday, Southiphong changed her Facebook gender from “male” to “female,” making her transition publicly official.   The 25-year-old designer largely ... Read More
If you’re looking to have a grand ole time this Thursday, June 28, look no further than the EP release party for Ocean Born Mary- the debut album from alt-country band Karen & the Sorrows. It’ll be in Park Slope, Brooklyn at The Rock Shop (249 4th Ave), where the band will play alongside The Library and Clare Burson.     Ocean Born Mary was inspired by an old New Hampshire ghost story of the same name.

Corsets: only 10 years ago, the term conjured up images of uncomfortable Victorian women squeezed into difficult contraptions. But it’s 2012, and that means that corsets are now a fun and sexy option for any lady’s lingerie wardrobe.

And apparently a lot of women are taking advantage of the corset craze. eBay has seen a 185% increase in corset ... Read More
Joan Rivers has been making us laugh while criticizing everyone (and their mom) since the 1960’s. She’s made a career of calling the stars out on their appearance and poor fashion choices in the least delicate way possible. No one is safe—we all get it, it’s her shtick.  But isn’t it pretty hard to watch women criticize women so cruelly sometimes? It’s a never-ending cycle of “Is she too fat? Too skinny? Isn’t ...

It looks like one boarding school on the other side of the pond is aiming to squash any and all signs of traditional femininity in its students. Just to be on the safe side, don’t plan on rocking anything above your ankle if you find yourself at Cheltenham Ladies’ College. The prestigious school for young women ages 11 to 18 opened in Gloucestershire, England, in 1854, and it seems Cheltenham would prefer to hold on to the dress code from its ... Read More
