The September Issue

All year, every year, I anticipate it's arrival more impatiently than a child on Christmas Eve. And now, here it is Christmas in August. Call me gluttonous, but with a 726-page fashion feast on my plate, I can't help but drool.  And just to add to my delight, who better to grace the cover than one of my favorite fashion icons, Ms. Halle Berry?
The September Issue of Vogue on newsstands now!


I flipped anxiously past the appetizers (at least 100 pages of advertisements!) until I found some deliciously fashionable features about the industries biggest night on the town. Fashion's Night Out is giving me New York fever and I would kill to be able to attend, but unfortunately being a full-time student and employee doesn't lend itself well to quick trips to NYC. Anyhow, I nibbled on some dainty debutante-inspired delicacies and scarfed down editorials stuffed with lace, tweed, velvet and fur. And for dessert, the Last Look (which I almost always look at first), the richest pair of raspberry flavored Louis Vuitton pumps, with heels dipped in honey-colored crystals.

Oooh so good! "Beauty" pump by Marc Jacobs,  for Louis Vuitton


As they say variety is the spice of life and this installment was seasoned just right. This seasons prominent trends warped time with ensembles motivated by the 20s and 50s and trotted the globe with pieces influenced by mongol invasions, antarctic explorations and nomadic ventures. The issue may have even been a little schizophrenic; tuning in to the different style voices of the glam-rocker, the country-chic, the trendy traveler and the conservative sophisticate.

Well, almost 800 pages later I wish I could say that my appetite for fashion has been satisfied, but Vogue has just left me even more ravenous for the upcoming fashion weeks in NYC. However, on the plus side, this issue paired very nicely with a glass of White Zinfandel!
