3 Things You Need to Know About The August Issue of Vogue.

1. Blake Lively started her own website, Preserve, and she looks gorgeous (as usual) on the cover and in her feature.

In Blake’s Letter from the Editor, she says “The function of Preserve is part magazine, part e-commerce hub, part philanthropic endeavor and above all, a place to showcase the power of imagination, ingenuity, quality, and above all, people… We’ve created this space to multiply our experiences. So Preserve.us isn’t just the U.S. It’s all of us.”

2. Christian Louboutin has created his own nail lacquer.

The polish was inspired by the signature soles of the shoes which was originally created by red nail polish. This 0.4 fl. oz. bottle is anything but ordinary. Rouge Louboutin’s handle shape is “inspired by the tallest heel Christian Louboutin ever created- the Ballerina Ultima” which is 8-inches high. For an equally designer price, you can be the owner of the next most talked about nail lacquer. You can buy it here or at Sephora.

3. If you are a Delevingner, you will be happy to see her in two ads before you get to the Table of Contents.

H&M Summer News.

I am pretty late to be commenting on this, but I still think it is worth a post.

For the longest time, I have loved shopping at H&M and I have also loved online shopping. It was always frustrating to not be able to buy products off of their online site when I needed a new pair of black jeans or something of the like. Since my university is located in the middle of a cornfield… literally…

Crushed Dreams: Condé Nast Intern Program.

Last night a dream of mine died.

Anna Wintour
Anna Wintour – Vogue Editor-in-Chief

Condé Nast decided to end its Intern Program.

Why?

They were sued by two interns who interned for W Magazine and The New Yorker for the summer who claimed to have been paid below minimum wage during their time at the corporation.

Unfortunately, this has not been the first corporation in the magazine industry to be hit with issues. A former Harper’s Bazaar intern sued Hearst Magazines last year for not being paid.

The opportunity to work for these companies and get a foot in the door before actually applying to be a full-time paid employee is now lost. This could be good, as it could level the playing field a bit, but it could also make it harder to get these journalist and editorial positions without previous work experience in the field.

What are your thoughts on Condé Nast getting rid of their intern program?

Sweater Weather.

Last night it snowed. Tomorrow is only a high of 45 degrees Farenheight as of now, most of the day being in the high 30s/low 40s. Tomorrow calls for a little sweater weather. Below is a similar outfit to the one I will be sporting tomorrow.

My snood is from ASOS last season and the sweater I thrifted. But here are some similar options.

Anthropologie: Paris Chic.

Okay, I have no valid excuse for the time between this post and my last besides the fact that I have had midterms and have been quite sick for two weeks now. Excuses aside, I should have been posting. So, here it goes again.

A few weeks ago I got the new fall Anthro catalogue. After drooling over its pages, I went back through and came up with a few favourite pieces from the collection.

I am in love with this sweater. It also comes in beige and white, but I am forever in love with a good black and white pairing.

I hope to have another post up within the next couple of days since I do not have that many classes this week.

Until next time, enjoy life and stay warm if you live in the Midwest. xx

Wishlist Wednesday.

Today has been a day of browsing. I always scan through magazines before I actually reed the content. I quickly scan over every page before snuggling up with a cup of Yorkshire tea, wrapped in a blanket, as I take the afternoon to immerse myself in a copy of Vogue.

I spent a good hour scanning through the October issues of Vogue and Nylon.*   I also took a good portion of time to go through a few blogs I follow and scan their newest posts. (My Bloglovin’ dashboard is very full right now and that needs to be fixed . . . I just have to find the time).

Here are a few of my favourite finds:

This skirt is from the 3.1 Phillip Lim collection at Target this fall.

*The only reason I snagged a copy of Nylon was because Alexa Chung was on the cover. Overall: good choice.
