September Issue

Saturday, August 17, 2013

That moment when the September Issue arrives in your mailbox. That moment each August, midway through August, when there is just enough time to get through those 902 pages (as is for the year 2013) before fashion week arrives in September.

The stories of my dresses

Vintage Kenzo Perfection, found on the California Coast

I love browsing thrift and vintage stores; seeking out long lost treasures I imagine once adorned movie stars and style icons.

Perhaps that lovely Marc Jacobs Dress that hangs ever so softly in my closet, was once owned by Sofia Coppola, or photographed by the Sartorialist.  Or that vintage cashmere sweater, that is just a little too big, but perfect for sleeve rolling and layering; perhaps it was once tucked away in a suitcase of Jane Birkin.

I like to imagine the stories of my dresses.
