Fashion and feminism, to many, are like oil and water. How does one reconcile the desire to look good with a mindset that wants women to be judged by more than simply their appearance? The tension is rooted in more than just contradictory mindsets. There are also the fashion industry facts of body policing, of white-washing the runways, of the over-sexualization of the female form. The list goes on and on.

One of my favorite Fashion Week events had to be Lulu's Style Studio, where bloggers from all over gathered to mingle, shop, and eat cupcakes in style. It was an ultra-stylish party, and I was able to snap shots of some of my favorite looks as everyone walked ... Read More

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
Tavi Gevinson, founder of Rookie, recently sat down with founder and editor-in-chief of Lula magazine, Leith Clark, for Nowness.com to discuss a little bit of everything from fashion and magazines to feminism and Miranda July. Nowness.com cuts off quite a bit of the hour and a half conversation between these two fascinating ladies, but Tavi posted the rest of the conversational interview on StyleRookie.com. I'm really glad she posted the interview ... Read More
The fall lines and looks are starting to appear every place I turn and I couldn't be more excited. Fall is my favorite time of year. I call it "tights and sweater" season which makes me infinitely happy considering my giant drawer of colorful tights and shelves of crazy sweaters, which were kind of useless in my hometown of San Antonio, Texas. Like my Summer Wishlist last June, I decided to culminate all the things I'm in love with at the moment and either can't ... Read More

N.Y.C.-based editor/designer Hamish Robertson is a busy man. You would think that being the online design editor of Vanity Fair would be time-consuming enough, right? Yet somehow Robertson finds time to create websites for well-known businesses (like vegan treatery, Babycakes), publish zines and prints as Brown Griffin (from his Brooklyn apartment), and curate Afterzine, a beautifully compiled arts and culture publication.
Featuring a collection of ... Read More
Laurie covered the event in this previous entry of the Advanced Style party hosted by Ari Seth Cohen and Style Rookie's Tavi Gevinson, but I thought I might share some of the amazing street style I was able to cover while we were there. It was pretty fantastic how people of all ages came together to celebrate style..in style! Everyone there looked fantastic dressed to the nines and it was one Fashion Week event I wont be forgetting any time soon.

I heard that this collaboration was not happening through some random internet source that no one backed up a while back and I assumed was just a rumor, but now it is a rumor no more. Tavi Gevinson of Style Rookie and Jane Pratt of XoJane.com once talked of creating a Sassy-like website and magazine for teens headed by Miss Gevinson. When XoJane.com launched, readers were confused that Tavi was nearly no where to be found, but hype was still building for some kind ... Read More

Sassy Magazine, arguably the best teen magazine of the late ‘80s/early ‘90s and a great source of inspiration for BUST, was paid tribute this week by The Talent Show Brand Variety Show, hosted at Littlefield in Brooklyn. The event sold out with lighting speed, but we were lucky enough to get in.
Hilarious hosts Elna Baker and Kevin Townley threw pinches of ... Read More
