Bust Out!

In the seemingly neverending quest to find a magazine as good as ELLEgirl, I have been introduced to 'Bust' magazine by my best friend. It's a smart, sassy and slick rag that doesn't focus on the maistream or pretend to be elitist - pretty much everything I desire in a good magazine. It's definitely got a left-wing feminist bias, which I appreciate. However, it probably wouldn't appeal to anyone not interested in those politics. But whether you're liberal or conservative, it sure features some adorable websites.

Sublime Stitching is a site selling wicked-awesome embroidery patterns. The patterns are reusable iron-ons and are quite innovative. I adore this specific "Rock 'n' Roll" pattern for seamlessly merging fashion and music. A serious question: Who knew embroidery could be so awesome?


Buy Olympia is another one of Bust's frequently advertised websites. They're famous for their 'Reading is Sexy' merch, but my particular favourite is this 'Punk Rock Saved My Life' tee. I think this tee would look much better on me than ii does pictured here because unlike the mannequin, I'm not a male with a beer belly.

There's also Naughty Secretary Club, where all of the merchandise is so impossible cute that I just couldn't decide which picture I could post, so I didn't post one at all. Check it regardless of my lack of graphics.

It was at a spelling-school that Master Horner first gratis anemi porno met theeducated eyes of Miss Harriet Bangle, a young lady visiting theEngleharts in our neighborhood.Butwhat is the relation of the foreconscious day remnants to the dream?There is no doubt that they penetrate abundantly into the dream, thatthey omas nackt gratis utilize the dream content to obtrude themselves upon consciousnesseven during the night; indeed, they occasionally even dominate the dreamcontent, and impel it to continue the work of the day; it is alsocertain that the day remnants may just as well have any other characteras that of wishes; but it is highly instructive and even decisive forthe theory of wish-fulfillment to see what conditions they must complywith in order to be received into the dream.Even the peccant schoolmaster and hispretended letters were forgotten, while the sapient Goliath, everytime that he raised the spear, in the energy of his declamation, tothump upon the stage, picked away fragments of the low ceiling, whichfell conspicuously on his great hq lolita shock of black hair.The old man had turned a last appealing glance upon the angry woman,as he mounted with Aleck's assistance, and leck oma sat in the light thatstreamed from out the kitchen window.

I liked Elle girl too. Now all we have is Teen Vogue. I have made up my mind to start one, one day, eventually.

Oh, I like 'Bust,' too. They've always got great articles on DIY stuff and cool people on the cover-- Amy Sedaris, Parker Posey, etc. I'm glad I'm not the only one who enjoys it.
