Are you onto Vogue’s 5 days, 5 looks, 1 girl feature yet? I’m constantly checking in to see if they’ve posted the latest installment. This one features Simone Tetteh, Vogue’s Bookings Associate. The majority of their features (as with the women they feature and have write for them in the print mag) are generally wealthy WASP types. Their shoes are Balenciaga, their candles designer and their hair impeccably groomed. Of course I enjoy reading about these crazy Upper East Side lifestyles, it’s certainly a whole world away from life here, but it is indeed a breath of fresh air to see a girl in denim coveralls and toting a longboard around Manhattan. What would be even better than a look at her wardrobe, is a sharing of what her life is like and how she came to work for Vogue. Not under Anna’s watch.

P.S. I opened the mail box today to find my first online shopping purchase delivered! I’ve purchased online of course, books from the Apple store, materials for the card biz, but never a pretty piece of clothing! Asos, you’ve made me so happy! This is a bit addictive…

{ VOGUE magazine, May 2012, Tech Support: The iBag – page 174 & 176 }

My boyfriend and I spent Friday night relaxing at home, a welcome evening of watching TLC and reading the latest Vogue. As I flipped through I came to an article that I really enjoyed (well a few actually, this one very much as well), about fashion following the consumers needs for their technology. It’s not exactly ground breaking, but nonetheless I found the piece clever and well written. I particularly enjoyed Natalie Massanet‘s (founder and executive chairman of Net-a-Porter) comment on the matter: “Today, Apple sneezes and out comes the Burberry Kleenex box!”

The article isn’t available online for reading, but The Daily Mail UK did quote most of it in their version of the story here.
