I blog a lot about fashion blogs, which I love and can't get enough of, but I thought I'd showcase one of the blogs I go to the most for entertainment news and fashion opinions I respect: Tom&Lorenzo. I only recently realized they changed their official blog name from Project Rungay to Tom&Lorenzo. It makes sense though since when the blog first began in 2006 it was primarily about Project Runway, but covers a lot more now. Even if you didn't keep up with the episodes of PR, this blog was the perfect way to keep up with the winners, drama, and hilarity of the show. Read More
This month, Vogue Italia has created a fabulous cover of curvy ladies for their latest June issue! Models, Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley all look the epitome of gorgeous gracing the cover and lovely Marquita Pring is added to the mix in other shots. The photos are both sexy and elegant. Although there’s sexy lady curves is the shots (remember the Superbowl/Lane Bryant fiasco?), the models still maintain a very high fashion, editorial feel throughout the pictures.
This cover is big, yet conflicting news for me. Read More
Blogger, Marlena, 17, is among the the fabulous teenage bloggers popping up over the past few years. With a shout out from the most well known of the bunch, Tavi of Style Rookie, Marlena's blog, Self Constructed Freak has been growing in popularity. Some of Tavi's recent posts actually seem to be taking some fashion cues from Self Constructed Freak. Marlena's mix of 80's punk and gothic, twee infusions makes her one of the most interesting bloggers out there. Read More
NYC Popfest was this past weekend and it was filled with fun, friends, pop songs, and dance parties. Amongst a sea of cardigans, glasses and plaid, a few pop kids pulled out all the stops from fancy dresses to YSL tees. The key was to be comfortable enough to dance like no tomorrow, but still put some effort in. Everyone looked adorable as ever. I'll soon be making a "Pop Bands to Look Out For" post, but for now enjoy the stylish attendees and band members of this year's NYC Popfest. Above are members of the band Tiny Fireflies and below, the singer of Dream Diary. Read More
From vendors to attendees, the BUST Craftacular crowd was indeed a stylish bunch. My head was turning every which way from fancy jewelry and vintage clothes to vegan treats and cupcakes galore, but once I looked away from the goodies, I noticed style everywhere! It was a gorgeous, sunny day and that brought tons of gals with bright, colorful dresses and cute, interesting accessories. Read More
Though her outfits are plain fabulous, Gala Darling is much more than just a style blog. She is a positive force of energy in the uncertain World Wide Web. Whether through her fashionable, fun ensembles or her Radical Self Love Series, "Love and Sequins" (sort of self help for those who hate "self help"), Gala Darling is one of the most positive forces out there. I like that she actually has fun with her fashion (sequins and glitter are always a plus!). My other favorite part is her "Things I Love Thursdays. Read More
There's style everywhere you look in New York City, from walking around Soho and drinking on the Lower East Side to shopping in Williamsburg and eating in Queens, which is all the different places I found these stylish gals. NYC definitely carries a stylish crowd and that's one of my favorite things about this city. From dressing up to dressing down, there's always something different in the mix. Read More
Coming up this June 16th, Best Coast and Those Darlins will be playing a Planned Parenthood of New York City Action Fund benefit! Now only are we big fans of both bands over here at BUST, this is a cause that has been and stays near and dear our hearts. Personally, when my insurance decided not to cover birth control unless for medical reasons (versus my “crazy and wild” sex life), Planned Parenthood was there to provide birth control I could afford. That’s just one story in a million. Read More
I recently stumbled across this recipe on Mouth From the South for chocolate chip cookies with..wait for it..bacon in them! As a longtime fan of all things salty/sweet and desserts with sea salt, I was instantly intrigued. My friend and I decided to test this recipe out and see how our (and other office BUSTies) taste buds would react. We weren’t entirely faithful in the recipe because, while, I found all the different kinds of chocolate needed, the forms were different. Read More
There are awesome new fashion, design and food blogs every day. It’s hard to keep up quite honestly! Whenever I find a new blog I adore, I just want to share it with the world so I’ve decided to start a “blog of the week.” Most will probably be of the fashion variety, but there are tons of great general design and food blogs to showcase as well (evidenced by all the awesome food bloggers in this month’s issue).
The first “blog of the week” is my current fashion obsession, Elsa Billgren for Swedish Elle Magazine. Read More
