Starbucks Chestnut Praline Latte – New Holiday Coffee Drink – Marie Claire

 

Starbucks Chestnut Praline Latte – New Holiday Coffee Drink – Marie Claire.

Sounds so marvelous, but I really wish Starbucks would start using Almond Milk. Several coffee houses use it and it would benefit coffee drinkers like me who 1: do not like cows milk and 2: can’t drink it.

San Francisco Chronicles: An ex-Vogue Editor Bids Adieu to Manhattan for Flat Shoes and New Adventures

 

San Francisco Chronicles: An ex-Vogue Editor Bids Adieu to Manhattan for Flat Shoes and New Adventures.

What an excellent article. Even though cities like San Francisco and New York are so much alike as far as being big metropolitan cities, they are so far apart when it comes to fashion. An excellent must read article.

I love this article, not only because these fashion lies are something that I do on a daily, but because we all are guilty of these little “lies” every now and then.  It’s just in our DNA.. But I mean come on….. isn’t it true? “I have nothing to wear”!!

Warhol’s Iconic Polaroids of Fashion Luminaries — The Cut.

Amazing Grace….. Andy Warhol was truly an artistic genius and these polaroids of fashion pictures are definitely some that must be seen. The 70′s and 80′s were the start of some amazing designers, models and industry leaders and Warhol was able to capture some unique moments of these fashion icons. Enjoy and read up… He was amazing…

John Galliano Named Creative Director of Maison Martin Margiela – Style.com.

Congratulations to John Galliano as he makes his triumphant return to the world of fashion design. We all go through periods in life in which we are not proud of and regret the mistakes we’ve all made. Let’s hope that this master of design has paddled through his mistakes. Not only is Maison Martin Margiela already an amazing brand, but with Galliano as the new Creative Director it will be taken to a whole new level. Good luck Galliano!

Modern Loss – Discussing Reality TV With Mom.

Ok, it’s probably not being the nicest person to hate anyone, and I can honestly say I don’t hate Kim Kardashian because hate is such as harsh word, but she and the rest of her clan just really irritate to the point of I don’t know what. I just had to share this article because as much as the fashion magazines would love to portray that the world is just so enamored with them, they’re not. This article clearly shows how much people are annoyed with them.

When you have it you have it right? Age is just a number and this is just so great that designers of this stature had the creativity to use models of various ages over the age of 30. It shows that age discrimination is non-existent in the world of fashion! Kudos to these fabulous designers

The Backlash At Vogue

vogue-600x400

What’s happened with fashion magazine’s of today? Long ago it used to be about fashion, the designers, and the models , today, most fashion magazines seem to be so enamored with celebrities. Not just any “celebrities”, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to be exact and there is one fashion magazine that is well known for this. Vogue, Vogue used to be about supporting the designers, photographers, makeup artists and others.

But recently it seems as though they’ve been devoting their coverage to both Kardashian and West along with their baby, North West. I’m sure you’ve all heard the story; back in January Kanye West reportedly begged editor in chief, Anna Wintour to put Kim Kardashian on the coveted cover of the iconic magazine. At the time, it was said that editor in chief, Anna Wintour was adamantly against it. Well, fast forward to March 2014, we woke up to the news that both, West and Kardsashian were on April’s cover issue.

What made Wintour change her mind? Whatever the reason was, it caused a real stir with Vogue fans along with actress Sarah Michelle Gellar. She tweeted : ‘Well……I guess I’m canceling my Vogue subscription. Who is with me???’ She was not the only one who felt this way, there were retweets of more than 8,000 times and favorited by more than 11,000 people. In addition to this Vogue’s Facebook page was also inundated with hundreds of disapproving messages.  One commenter wrote, ‘I’m done with Vogue. Subscription cancelled sick to death of Kanye and Kim used to be high fashion, your standards have been highly compromised!!!!!!’

Spring forward to today, it seems as though the magazine still hasn’t gotten the hint that their readers do not wish to be bombarded with photos of the Kardashian-West clan. Vogue continues to devote their coverage to two people who really do not contribute anything to the fashion community or the world for that matter. I was on Vogue’s Facebook page the other day and could not believe the amount of negative comments from their followers stating their unhappiness with the amount of coverage for Kardashian and West.

I’m going to have to unfollow. Your devotion to this family is baffling. I can only assume they have some serious dirt on Anna Wintour.” Unlike · Reply · 114 · September 27 at 6:11am

Vogue…I’m sure you have intelligent people working for you, but by your posts…it shows other wise. Please give me some faith back in the “Vogue” name and start giving us articles that we can’t read in STAR magazine..maybe even about people who are positive influences in society. You are losing loyal followers and costumes ( I unsubscribed to the magazine when you put Kim on the cover ) and will now be unfollowing your posts, like I know million others are doing. You use to inspire me with your articles, now I’m left feeling a tad dumber every time I read your posts. What happened? Are you in such a bad financial crisis you are taking Kim and Kanye’s money to post their face on everything you associate your name with? It’s disgusting and VERY NOT Vogue..we need fashion, inspiration, knowledge..not the Kim and Kanye hourly updates. Get it together..I miss the old you..and fear you will never come back.

“I’m unfollowing vogue from today. 5 posts of kardashians in one day is too much for me! Ugh!

One would imagine that a magazine such as Vogue would listen to their readers. The readers and their subscriptions are the ones who help keep the magazine alive. Why would they not listen to them? I’ll leave you all with one final thought, Vogue should to start to take their reader comments and wishes a little more seriously or the backlash that is currently proceeding will only continue to get worse. Not only will they have a hard time trying to make it up to their readers, but how much of this would have affected their long term business outlook?

Only Anna Wintour can control the end result.

“Done with the K train! Unfollowing now!”

“Stop sucking up to the Kardashian/Jenner/West familly. How much do they pay you, Vogue? A one year old has nothing to do at a fashion show. Can you imagine the extremely high and unhealthy music volume? They will bring that poor child to the clubs next. #pathetic”

21 Things Only Fashion Girls Understand | WhoWhatWear.com.

In this lovely world of fashion, yes, there are only a select few of people that can truly, truly understand how you feel about fashion. Before I started blogging, I never really had that connection with anyone, but then, as I started to meet more and more friends in the blogging world, I’ve found my connections!

So my whole point to this is that, if you love fashion and your friends just don’t quite get how you feel about it, join a fashion group or club where there are other girls just like you!
