I am a bit of a minimalist. I don’t like the concept of hoarding up things. But I do collect one thing…..
The September Issue of Vogue.
Every year for the last 7 years I have bought, read, and kept the September Issue. It’s kind of a big deal. (Watch the 2009 documentary The September Issue to really understand.) Fashion Week happens all over the world in September and Vogue publishes is biggest version of the magazine this month. Some years is has over 600 pages – it’s almost a yearly fashion bible. Sept is the turning point for fashion. It is like the January of the fashion world. The new styles, cuts, colors, are all “introduced”. So you can see the bent or turn that the fashion world is making by flipping through the magazine during the fall. I took some time yesterday while the kids were napping to nibble on a plate of sugary goodies, and flip through this fashion portal of whimsy. I love whats coming into style. It looks like 17th century pirate fashion with a big 70s hippie influence in neutral and dark rich colors. Boots with long structured open jackets, floppy boho hats, untamed long hair, all in deep forest colors. I am in love. This is so beautiful. I am completely over the 90s trend that has been plaguing the streets for the last year. lol. Cheers to the future and always moving on!
Happy start of the fashion year everyone. Go ahead and pick up a September Issue.!
