When we first started reading Reductress, we LOL’d, then we became totally entranced by their satirical over-the-top takedown of fashion, entertainment, and all things ‘women’s interest.’ We caught up with Reductress editors (and comedians) Sarah Pappalardo and Beth Newell to talk about serious journalism, feminist onions, and why integrity is basically stupid.—Chris Rellas

The duo behind Inside In, Inside Out gives us their insider’s guide to Brisbane, Austrailia.
Michelle Ryu of Wicked Tides proves that even in the summer heat, all a girl really needs is the perfect black dress. She shows just enough skin in our Night Curve Maxi paired with an olive fedora, layers on layers of necklaces and a quilted clutch we’ve gotta get our hands on. If only we could raid her accessories stash…swoon.
Fabliha and Tasfia Reza are the 20-year-old Australian twins behind Inside In, Inside Out. Science students by day, the twins use their blog as an in-your-face creative outlet. Their look is experimental, combining mixed prints with bold color. Fabliha describes her style as “whimsical and quirky” while she says her sister’s style is “edgier, with cleaner lines and more monochromatic and neutral” pieces. Their blog is about more than just style, though. They love cooking and traveling (they’ve recently been to Spain, France, and Turkey, amongst other places) too, and integrate it all into their dizzingly colorful (in a good way) blog.
In light of our recent collaboration with Lazy Oaf, we decided to revisit some other songs where one + one = totally awesome.

If you’re bored of stuffy, self-important style magazines, then you really need to get up on The Mushpit. This sassy London fanzine is an ode to the glittery glory days of the early Naughties, when pop music was enjoyed without irony and choker necklaces were still a thing. With crop top-heavy fashion spreads, tongue-in-cheek relationship advice, and dreamy real-boy centrefolds, The Mushpit is redefining the modern fashion magazine from its Dalston, East London HQ. Editors Char Roberts and Bertie Brandes (both 22) gave us the scoop.—Phoebe Lovatt
If you’ve ever tried to find a middle ground between a full bun and letting your hair fall naturally, look no further. We got Ashlee Rose to walk us through creating The Baby Bun. It’s a sort of sleek, sort of messy hairdo that’s still subtle, but done-up enough to show that hey, you did put some effort in today.
We’ve got punk on the brain this week, so we thought it was time to revisit and pay homage to some of our favorite women in punk (such as Blondie front woman miss Debbie Harry, above, who’s still hot-as-hell at 67) and some who, even though they may not have been at the heart of the movement, still embody the punk ethos.
