Back in school as a 15 year old textiles student, my friends and I would refer to Vogue as ‘The Bible’. Well, fast forward 8 years, and it’s slowly slipping off it’s pedestal. I’m not sure what’s going to step up and replace it, but Elle’s doing a pretty good job at the moment. Plus, this month Mary-Kate is the cover girl 🙂

Daria looks stunning in her H&M adverts, I like them a lot better than her Dior ads.

Ms Campbell does YSL again. Her legs just aren’t even fair!

The most amazing Ferragamo bag…

Kate smoulders for Just Cavalli

Fabulous winter colours at DKNY, love the coat and hat with the pretty dress

There was a lot on a gothic winter…I’m practically alergic to wearing black but I actually can’t wait for lace tights, patent belts and spikey accessories!

    Hi there- I tend to buy Vogue, Elle and Harpers each month, but this month I didn’t get Elle as I’d already got the Collections edition. I do waver between the three though-I keep saying I’m going to stop buying them, but I never do-haha!!

    Wonderful photos … I dunno, I’m ashamed to admit but I stopped reading Vogue like couple of month ago… it’s too repetitive and just full of ads( something you can easily find online)and I’m currently digging Elle Canada … it’s much more interesting to read.

    Hi sweetie! I have been hearing alot of this recently . . . people putting Bazaar and Elle above Vogue on the totem pole. According to the New York Times, Vogue’s newsstand sales are slipping as well. I subscribe to pretty much everything, and while I looooove Elle, Vogue has always been and will always be my Bible. Great post, darling!xoxox,CC
