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
November is my favorite time of the year, from pumpkin-spice everything to the gluttony of Thanksgiving and, of course, my birthday! When it comes to the holiday season, I love buying presents for others (and for myself!), so I thought I'd put together a collection of some of my favorite items of the moment, many from adorable Etsy shops I recommend exploring. Hopefully they can give you ideas for Christmas shopping to come! My first items are these fanciful, ... Read More
My boyfriend and I recently took a leap of faith, quit our jobs, and took a much needed vacation from New York City across the border to Canada! We chose three cities and took our first train ride to Montreal. We spent most of our time there and then headed for a brief visit to Quebec City and Toronto.  We both invested in new cameras right before we left and were staying with seasoned photographer Mary Elam so we were all a bunch of photo-happy ...

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
Add some punch and pizazz to your boring white dress shirt with collar clips, my must-have accessory of the year. Most collar clips are easy to put on and take off (providing a quick and temporary way to get two shirts out of one), and you can find some reasonably priced ones at consignment stores, etsy.com, and ebay.com (tip: search for "collar tips" in addition to "collar clips"). For even more punch and pizazz, try putting collar clips on patterned dress ... Read More
In a recent interview with Tom Brady, designer and director Tom Ford made some interesting age-related comments about the football player’s wife, the absurdly gorgeous supermodel Gisele Bündchen. The Internet has had it out for Ford since the interview came out in VMAN, calling for his head on a pike because he dared to talk openly about the fact that Gisele will someday age--and further, that it's unfortunate that the fashion industry will consider her less ...

Looking for that special item that'll take your living room from blah to MoMA? Well, look no further. This mobile pops against plain white walls (yo, landlords, what've you got against cool paint colors?) and will brighten up an unused corner of even the most low-ceilinged room. You can even hang it above your bed--I hear it induces colorful dreams. Trust me, this colorful, geometric mobile will make any area in your home supercool. Themis Trio Hanging ... Read More
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
Retail giant Urban Outfitters is under fire (again) for shirts that glorify drinking. Let’s ignore the fact that: 1. These shirts are dumb, and 2. These shirts are stupid, and also 3. These shirts are not clever, and pay attention to the fact that the majority of Urban Outfitters shoppers are 18-24. Ruh-oh. Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) have responded to the shirts, claiming that they are not acceptable for children under the age of 21. Oh, Urban ... Read More
