American Apparel is on the hunt for their next soft-core porn model, asking women to put two cheeks to the wind for their "Best Bottom in the World" competition. The clothing company is having women submit photos of their backsides clad in AA products to their website, where they are being scored and commented on. It's the new "Hot or Not," except you feel even sleazier after looking at it.Am I surprised at Dov Charney's slimeball marketing tactics? ... Read More

We’ve gotten a sneak peek at Sonia Rykiel’s new line for H&M, and, being as that the pieces so far sport fun colors, bows, and bedazzling, we love it. Rykiel, known for her knits, brings adorable sweaters and accessories from her French boutiques to the public with this collection, her second with the Swedish retailer.
The playful yet wearable pieces will almost certainly be a hit, though H&M has seen its share of controversy ... Read More

Anyone that has ever met me knows I have a rather unhealthy obsession with glasses. For some girls it’s shoes, or handbags or cupcakes or whatever, but for me its spectacles, usually vintage and large. I’m often on the hunt for new shades too, and was delighted when my friend sent me a link to this amazing London based brand called PRISM. Woah, these are some seriously sexy frames! Not on the cheap side, they run about 205£, but they are hand ... Read More

BUST girl Emily Rems left a little something in my inbox this holiday season, and here I am, on Christmas, to share it with you. Call me a giver. For those of you celebrating, or for those of you just celebrating fashion, enjoy: Third and Delaware.
Some mad genius is meticulously gathering clothing highlights from each and every episode of Roseanne--providing colorful stills, snarky (or sincere?!) commentary, and careful labeling (down to the ... Read More

One of my fave BUST Holiday Craftacular vendors sent me this head piece today at left, that I am totally in love with. It's called "Champagne Celebration" and will look totally cute for a holiday party involving the drinkable kind of champagne! Now, I am not someone who gets really into hair accessories, I am either wearing my hair down, unwashed and scrappy, or tied back. Since I dye my hair far too much I end up not wanting to draw any more attention to it, but ... Read More
How many times have you stood in front of your closet, staring into space? You know that feeling that comes with the familiar little voice. I haven't got a thing to wear.
Have no fear, the alum from All Star Challenge, Berber Soepboer and Michiel Schuurman created the Colour-In Dress. Now, instead of fussing over a garment that's the wrong color or pattern...you can make your own! Reminiscent of coloring books and doodling in class margins, ... Read More

We just love, love 13 year old fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson, and after watching this video of her introducing the Rodarte sister's line for Target, you'll probably agree that she is the most adorable person on earth. Her blog, Style Rookie is amazing, and the entire fashion world is bonkers for her, probably since she is the freshest thing to come into it, ever. Unfortunately there are already some ... Read More

Andrea Garland's beauty products might not do exactly what it says on the tin, pill box or compact for that matter, but they're sure to give the likes of Benefit a run for their money! Tired of boring mass produced packaging, this vintage-loving aromatherapist decided to forgo the norm by choosing to fill all manner of tiny antique receptacles with her products instead.Each one different, the balms and lotions inside are lovingly made from organic and ethically ...
