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.
