More Issues Than Vogue In September

I’ve got more issues than Vogue in September, so here’s my fun quick round-up.

Holy shitballs guys! I cannot believe that it’s September already! again! And you know what that means, if you haven’t read a damn thing to-date – fret not. If you did, but it involved a Kindle and a beach, doesn’t really count. Or the back of your eyelids. Whatever. Novels are neat and sleep is good, but this month is for the glossy print magazines that acted as our long-ago gateway drugs into the world of wondrous clothes.

Don’t you miss the crinkle of a crisp page? Don’t you miss the smell of perfume in a paper spine? I sure as hell got excited when they even included a sampler to the ad! Oh, how the World was much simpler before digital anything.

Anyways, here are some good reads from some of my favorite glossies this month;

 

 New York Magazine 
winona-ryder-new-york-magazine
New York Magazine Cover Star/Pose: Winona Ryder dusting off her shoulder like, “Oh, this old thing?”
Subway Read: The Winona Ryder profile titled “Woman, Uninterrupted,” by Heather Havrilesky.
The-Story-That-Everyone’s-Talking-About Read:“The Bodies Artist” by Amy Larocca: a profile on Kanye West’s (very) controversial creative collaborator Vanessa Beecroft.
For the FASHIONS:“Waitresses of New York,” photographed by Bobby Doherty, styled by Rebecca Ramsey. It’s Fall 2016 fashion shot on…yes, the waitresses of New York. Excellent for slow Instagram content days if you really wanna wow your crowd.

 

And can we just talk about this stunning photo and look for a minute? I mean… she’s certainly cleaned herself up since “Stranger Things; A Netflix Original” have you seen? If not, it’s a must-see! Check out my review and trailer here.

Now that all the leg work is done, indulge yourself. Don’t worry if you haven’t picked up a non-indie hard copy in a while. That’s okay. They are far heavier than this season’s hottest trend: Pokémon. And you do not have to catch them all. Hardy-har? No? Can’t say that I haven’t tried.
