At 26 years-old, I’m not ashamed to say that teenager Tavi Gevinson might be my hero. She's been running her own blog, Style Rookie, since she was 11, and in September she started Rookie, an online magazine that tries to make up for the loss of Sassy oh so many years ago—way back in 1996 to be exact, the same year Ms. Gevinson was born. She’s had her own New Yorker profile and probably has Miranda July on speed dial, so to hear that The ... Read More
To all NYC fashionista BUST-ies:DVF, at 260 Fifth Avenue, is having a sample sale. Though I sometimes have a problem with sample sales, since they're not usually inclusive of all body types, I *do* like the idea of being somewhat able to afford well-made digs from a rad designer at more reasonable prices.

Obviously it’s Veteran’s Day, but did you know it’s also National Corduroy Day? Well it is. I mean how can you not take advantage of such a momentous occasion as 11|11|11, which as corduroy enthusiasts realized a few years back, looks a lot like the fabric’s striped pattern.
The golden age of corduroy was in the 1970s, but the holiday originated in 2005, when The Corduroy Appreciation Club (a semi-serious club for those who really ... Read More

We have probably even spent more than what is considered a healthy amount of time on her fashion blog, the Rebel Waltz, as she captures street styles from places like New York City, Austin, and San Francisco. But, we aren't the only ones who are taking notice. Former BUST intern Kristina Uriegas-Reyes is attracting some outside attention these days and, of ... Read More

People love androgyny. Admit it, we love those girls who look just as good in suits as they do in dresses. You know who else loves androgyny? The industry; the fashion industry that is. When we think high fashion, I'm sure we can all expect a lady or two sashaying down the runway in something masculine, but, what about a guy? What happens when a man comes down the runway in the latest gown? The fashion world may be in oohs and ahhs and tears of gender-bending joy, ... Read More
