For even more punch and pizazz, try putting collar clips on patterned dress ... Read More

When I was younger, I lasted in my local chapter of the girl scouts for a whole two weeks before I quit. In that time frame I never got any cool patches or anything, but I did get to sell and eat lots of those delicious thin mint and coconut-y cookies. And although all of the women who ran my sect of the girl scouts were extremely pretentious, I’ve always secretly found scout culture interesting. Wes Anderson’s new movie, Moonrise Kingdom, follows the ... Read More

Happy Jewelry

Handmade jewelry is awesome. Colorful jewelry is awesome. Handmade colorful jewelry is way awesome. As someone who still wishes they could dress up like Rainbow Brite, you can imagine my excitement when I stumbled across Tierra on Spring street, a small store full of handmade jewelry in the most rich, vibrant colors these eyes have ever seen. The store, which looks more like a wooden hole in the wall, is one of the happiest places in the LES. Being inside ... Read More
Iconic Brit jewelers (and longtime BUST favorites), Tatty Devine have sparked a huge response on Twitter in the last 24 hours after posting these pictures on their blog highlighting the dubious similarities between some of their classic designs and those currently on sale at UK high street chain, Claires Accessories.  Coming at already challenging times for all UK retailers, these cheaper mass produced versions pose a real threat to ...
