What Would You Do For Fashion?

Playing catch up is both a relief but oh so tiring at the same time.  I can finally get these ideas on paper but as old ideas get made into posts, new ideas finally surface.  But ofcourse we all go through this at some point in time.  I'm not even half way through with my September issues and October has already hit the shelves.  I can't just NOT buy October. In a later post I'll show you my infamous magazine collection.  I'm trying to find a way to keep them all without throwing any of them away.  Any suggestions??  Living in the barracks is definitely a challenge, space is SCARCE!!! 

One of my faves from Harper Bazaar's September issue is Rachel Zoe's "I Die" spread. Rachel Zoe has proven to us numerous times the sacrifices she's made for fashion...but to die?  Okay not literally, but the whole concept of the shoot is so creative. I'm surprised more people didn't blog about it.  I personally love Zoe and I refer back to her book as much as humanly possible.  I mean who wouldn't? This woman lives glamour on a day-to-day basis and I am a firm believer in learning from the best.

"Death by Stiletto? I can't imagine a better way to go." -Brian Atwood

"I would die for Rachel's vintage archive." -Francisco Costa

"Rachel's energy is electrifying? …And often shocking!" -Marc Jacobs

"The perfect accessory can make the difference between looking blah and totally to die for." -Michael Kors 

"I only want to kill Rachel when I don't land one of her fabulous clients for the Oscars!" -Vera Wang

I personally thought this was a treat. The best of the best all together. I would have liked to see Karl Laggerfeld or maybe even Tom Ford...maybe next time.

So I ask you....would you die for fashion?

Until Next Time
