Only a few pictures for today because as you probably can tell, I started to turn into Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer due to the freezing weather . . . lol.
This was taken at the end of last week when we were still experiencing Ice Age temperatures. I hope I do not complain this much once the opposite extreme comes, summer, if I do please stop me. But I really love summer, it is my favorite season, so I do not think I will complain. Have any of you picked up this month's VOGUE magazine. The issue is actually really good which made me super excited to read it. Though I have to say, it is not quite my favorite magazine since I cannot always relate to the articles. And I think I realized why: for a lot of the editorials VOGUE being a high-end magazine, has authors who are high-end, famous, and wealthy. So usually the authors will be talking about something and I am thinking: "Okay, that's awesome or that sucks (depending on what the author is discussing) but I cannot exactly relate and be sympathetic but rather empathetic because I do not know what their situations feels like. That would be why I have a love, hate relationship with VOGUE depending on each individual month. I enjoy reading and imagining an author's triumphs and tribulations but can I actually feel what they are talking about . . . that is the question.
Now I understand why VOGUE would mainly use upperclass, at times aristocratic, authors because that is at times more interesting than an Average-Joe. What do you want to hear, a princess story or a trip to the groceries? Magazines, for me, are meant to allow me to visit a different world and see what the latests trends are but a reality check is always appreciated so that you know "hey they are similar to me." I am not saying the same, but I guess that is why VOGUE is VOGUE: for not being relatable but for wanting to be reachable and attained, a goal in other words. But if I had a chance to discuss my interpretation of VOGUE with Anna Wintour, if only, I would congratulate her for her success and applaud her for her ability to create a magazine that is above and beyond, but comment that a little bit of "relatablitity" is always appreciated.
What do you think?
p.s as for the outfit just layering up to stay warm while mixing prints.
