My Dear Followers,

It is my firm belief that every fashionista in the world has the same love and addiction to vogue as I do. Since 1892 Vogue has been showing the world that fashion is more than just clothes but that there is an artistry behind it. So here are some editorials from several issues of Vogue from around the world. Make sure to head on over to the Fashion Industry Archive. It was so incredibly helpful in the making of this post. I couldn’t have found all the photographers and stylists without it! Enjoy!

Things I Love

My Dear Followers,

Sometimes when cruising the interwebs or reading magazines or the like, I stumble upon things that I just can’t keep to myself. So this post is about things that I am in love with. I hope you enjoy as much as I do!

Marcel Floruss is just always on point. His blog One Dapper Street is definitely one of my all time favorite reads! 

image

I don’t know about you all but these D&G advertising campaigns make me lose breath. They are just so unbelievable and I can’t get enough. Check out the rest of them here.

image

Kanye may not be everyone’s favorite but I can’t help but love this interview he did with GQ. Here’s my favorite thing that he said in the interview: “Most clothes are black or white. But I don’t like all that contrast. It looks either too work, too waiter, or too wedding-y to me. If that’s even a word, wedding-y. Anyway, that’s why I like tonal. There’s less contrast; it’s more casual.” More here and here

image

Viktoriya Sener is definitely one of  my new favorite fashionistas and it’s so incredibly easy to see why. She is just so effortlessly chic. More obsessing can be done at her blog.

image

The August issue of Vogue is going to be incredible. Not only because Blake Lively is looking ultra fabulous, but because the Olsen twins have a revelation. Mary-Kate and Ashley have designed a wedding dress for long time friend Molly Fishkin and it’s exquisite. I can’t wait to see more from the two of them. In the meantime, check out more photos of the dress here
