Style Yourself is a book full of fashion bloggers, such as Sea of Shoes’ Jane Aldridge, who writes the foreword, Style Rookie’s Tavi Gevinson, Style Bubble’s Susie Lau, The Glamourai’s Kelly Framel, and Keiko Groves of Keiko Lynn, among many other awesome bloggers. The book aims to be a guide to personal style with advice from many of the bloggers. While I enjoy having a tangible book to draw inspiration from and love the fabulous blogger ... Read More
I've been wearing the same damn swimsuit since 2005, and my too-small bikini bottom is causing me more anxiety than if I were to swim with the sharks or go on the Jersey Shore boardwalk. Still, swimsuit shopping isn't my forte; I hate the paper crotch strips and I'm just too lazy. But these monster swimsuits from Iron Fist may finally convince me to ditch my dingy bikini. These freaky tops and bottoms are sure to get you attention - just be prepared to say, "Ahem, ... Read More
Most blog-reading folks know The Satorialist, the now-famous street style blog by Scott Schuman, but do you know The Satorialtwist? This clever blog splices pictures from The Satorialist to create some interesting, hilarious, and even cute outfits (such as the one above). I'm not sure how Schuman feels about the blog, but I like to think he'd be flattered considering the disclaimer Harry Woodrow, The Satorialtwist's creater, posts on the site, ... Read More
Our favorite "doen't give a fashion fuck" actress, Helena Bonham Carter is Marc Jacobs' latest muse and model for his Fall 2011 collection. Some of these photos are not exactly the most conventionally attractive, but that's exactly what makes them amazing. Right now the fashion world is oohing and ahhing over Elle Fanning's MJ campaign, but these photos are the real gems. A true style icon is someone who beats to the tune of her own drum. No one encompasses that ... Read More

Here at BUST Magazine, we consider ourselves to be some pretty green ladies. But in a world inundated with vegan-this and eco-friendly that, we also realize it’s hard to know which green products are the best of the best.
As the resident vegan intern, cool eco-friendly stuff is close to my heart. That’s why in anticipation of our first ever Earth Issue, I’ll be testing a ton of my favorite beauty products, clothing and food. Check out ... Read More
I can't decide if this Steve Buscemi dress by Black Milk is ridiculous or awesome..or ridiculously awesome. I happen to think Steve Buscemi is amazing. He's hilarious in a weird sort of way and I kind of find him secretly attractive in GhostWorld (..Right?!..No? Am I alone here?), but do I want to wear his face on my boobs? I don't know about that..
Buy one here if you dare and happen to have an extra $100 lying around.
And just for kicks, here's the ... Read More
At any given moment, there are at least a dozen fashion displays and exhibits going on around the world. Most recently, I saw the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibit at The Met and had no hesitation about considering it art, but I did start to wonder, “When does fashion become art” and “What exactly is the criteria?” Yesterday The New York Times published an article “Gone Global: Fashion as Art?” by Suzy Menkes, which I ...

A few photos from 14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld's new Fall 2011 Miu Miu campaign have emerged and while Miu Miu is one of my favorite brands and I think Hailee looks adorable in their clothes, the photo above kind of freaks me out in the same way Elle Fanning becoming "fashion's latest muse" at 13 years old freaks me out.
I think Hailee above and Elle Fanning in Marie Claire posted below look amazing and I admit, I love the photos. I feel like this brings up ... Read More
Summer is officially is full swing and while I might be lacking in funds to buy all the pretty, summery things I love, I decided to make a “Summer Wishlist” of fashionable items that add some summer fun to ensembles lacking the colorful tights and cardigans of autumn and spring. I'm a total Fall girl who loves to layer, but getting creative with colors, prints, and accessories is what I love best about summer. I hope you enjoy peeking into my online ... Read More
While Mad Men won't be back till early 2012, if you're missing the fabulous style created by costume designer, Janie Bryant, fear not, you can still get a dose of it come August when her 65-piece collaboration with Banana Republic's creative director, Simon Kneen, emerges. Check out some of the looks below and my thoughts on some of the pieces.
I'm definitely digging the men's wear, I'm a sucker for a bow tie or sweater vest, but I'm not ... Read More
