BY Tara in Crafty

  Hooray! i'm super stoked to announce that i will be teaching a sewing class at Make Workshop on May 8th and 15th. Remember the hoodie project we featured in BUST in our Oct/Nov issue?

I'm sure that those of you who follow style trends as closely as I do are all familiar with Wardrobe_Remix. But for those who have been sadly left in the dark about this wonderful fashion abode..it's time to get enlightened. A trip to this flickr community started by the lovely tricia royal (writer behind bits and bobbins, another known stop on the styleblog circuit), using your trusty web browser, will reward you the chance to puruse tons of digital pics uploaded ...

Awkweird

BY Tara in General

It's such a strange reality check to look back at old pictures of myself and realize that as awesome as i thought i was, i was such a mess. And it's really a universal truth...no one was as cool as they thought were in middle-school. I got this email from a friend of a friend who's working on this sweet book project, and it looks like it will be totally rad:Hi friends, This is a new project I am working on with my pal Amelia. YOU NEED TO BE A PART OF THIS! We are ... Read More

Grand Ole Party (DH Records), Yacht (Marriage & States Rights Records), Mika Miko (Kill Rock Stars) and ... Read More

Remember that Sex and the City epidsode where Carrie goes to the country with Aiden and says that squirrels are just rats with cuter outfits? Well, to me, cupcakes are the my daily indiscretion of caloric intake....in a cuter outfit, of course. And perhaps, the best thing about these little gems from Sweet Avenue Bake Shop is just how cute they are! Of the 30 types of cupcakes ($1.95 each) on the rotating menu at this traditional & vegan cupcakery, anywhere ... Read More

Phalographics

BY Tara in General

Hate if you will. But NO ONE is going to persuade me to get in the negativity boat when speaking about Judd Apatow's recent, hilarious blockbuster Superbad. Anyone who knows me, knows that I drool at the mere thought of Michael Cera and Jonah Hill (the stars who play younger versions of Evan Goldberg and the brilliant Seth Rogen (boners!), who wrote the screenplay and basically anyone connected with the Apatow clan who's brough us such cult-classic comedies. And ... Read More
