When shopping for shoes, we're typically attracted by appearance and, of course, price point. Human rights and sustainability don't enter the equation as much as they should. But that can change thanks to Nicora Johns, a spankin' new footwear company with both environmental and labor considerations driving its business. As a longtime cobbling connoisseur, 32-year-old founder Stephanie Fryslie decided to take matters into her own hands. Literally. Fryslie works ... Read More
  What separates Pamela Des Barres, in her own words, from any other “rock historian” is the appeal of being "the person who was able to sit between Jimmy Page and Robert Plant while they were doing the set list for Led Zeppelin II.” But she’s more than a simple artifact of music’s golden era, of course. She just happens to be a former member of one of the first (and, to knowledge, only) groupie bands. She's also a rock journalist and author of ... Read More
Andrea Diodati’s Fall 2013 collection, titled The White Fall, is a collection made up of cotton candy separates and sugary sweet styling. In NYC’s lovely All Souls Chapel, the scene was set with sparkling lemonade, pink cotton candy via Handsome Dan’s and a live performance by songstress and pianist, Nibia. The styling of the models and overall vibe of the show were initially reminiscent of Meadham Kirchhoff S/S’12, but the show soon took ... Read More
Bianca Venerayan Toronto, Ontario, Canada Student/Designer/Writer Tell me about this outfit. The jacket is courtesy of sugarlips.com; it’s $55. The pants are from Club Monaco seasons ago—they’re pajamas disguised as socially acceptable pants. They were on sale for about $60. The socks are from the men’s section at Uniqlo (four for $10), the shoes are by Jeffrey Campbell ($120 on solestruck.com), and the necklace is from Zara ($30). I think the best ... Read More
It’s easy to pass by puffy outerwear in the post-holiday mess that is retail stores these days, deeming it tacky or unflattering. I’ll admit that I’m still not a huge fan of the bubble jacket. But next time you see a marshmallow-y vest, I challenge you to try it on and still believe it’s not worth the warmth. If you find the right one, puffer vests can be cute AND incredibly comfy. I encourage the oversized puffer vest, like the one ... Read More
  Finally, someone has taken it upon themselves to create jewelry for that previously unadorned canvas, your crotch. That's right ladies, now you can hang cute, sparkley jewels from your pants. You can even wear it with your bathing suit! The video for this is amazeballs, but if you are in the office, make sure to turn it down before you start it 'cause it may just knock your socks off. Seriously, after watching this I had to check my calendar to make ... Read More
Gawd, I love colored cords. They're so much more fun than blue jeans. When wearing colored cords, I usually like to keep the rest of my outfit simple; a grey sweater looks great with cords of any color, and you can never go wrong with a pair of black flats. Corduroy Pant, $22.99, target.com Stay tuned each week for more cool gadgets and pretty things that Lan, our senior designer here at BUST, loves enough to share with ... Read More
BUST cover girl and all-around awesome lady Tavi Gevinson was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night, and we just about plotzed. Jimmy even held up the Aug/Sept issue of BUST, featuring Tavi in all her glory.   We have such a lady crush on Tavi and her site Rookie. Both do an amazing job of starting conversations about what it's like to be a teenage girl, and about feminism. Tavi chatted with Fallon about her new book Rookie Yearbook One, her hilarious ...

Fashion designer Nzinga Knight doesn't use low-cut necklines in her designs, or gowns with thigh-high slits exposing bare legs. There’s no cleavage, back, or belly showing on the models who wear her designs. Why? Knight's a devout Muslim. Instead of flaunting the wearer's assets, her work's sex appeal is tied to the mystery of the covered body. "The look of my work is sensual, mysterious, innovative," she told Yahoo! News. She explained that her target is ... Read More
A few months back, we put out a call for submissions, asking fashion bloggers to send shots of themselves in the outfits they thought they'd be wearing and loving come fall. We received so many amazing entries that it was tough to pick our favorites, but we showed off some fantastic ladies in our August/September issue. We didn't have enough room to include all the details of these great getups, but have no fear: you can find out everything you need to know below. ... Read More
