The September Issue

I love Glamour Magazine. And this month, my excitement was even greater than usual when I realized it was time for the most amazing of all issues: the September Issue.

For the magazine’s first ever “full-on fashion issue”, Glamour got the help of Victoria Beckham (by the way, how awesome was it to see the Spice Girls reunited at the London 2012 Closing Ceremonies?).  After a thorough read, I feel ready to make a fashionable transition into fall.

Here are a few things I learned:

  1.  It’s totally OK to wear black at a wedding (not yours!). This is good, since I’m going to one this weekend and was a bit nervous about my black (but oh-so-chic) Calvin Klein dress.
  2.  Necklaces shaped like a fake collar are very trendy these days. Not so sure about that one…I’ll ask Emily to do some research and write a post about it. Stay tuned!
  3. Purple and oxblood (or Chianti, as Glamour prefers to call it) are THE colours of the season.
  4. And, finally, when asked if they would rather have a lifetime supply of Louboutins or one amazing night with Ryan Gosling, 68% of women surveyed by the magazine said they would choose the shoes. I, personally, would pick Ryan (who needs that many Louboutins?)


  1. I would say it is quite ok to wear black at your own wedding - or any other colour! The bride is always right after all!


    1. It's true that some very cool brides - like yourself! - can pull it off! I agree that the most important thing is to feel beautiful. That's exactly why I will wear the black dress on Saturday! But I got a neon pink belt to make it a bit more festive. Not as cool as sparkling red shoes, but...;)

  2. I'll take those Louboutins, without hesitation :) And I'm such a huge Victoria fan, she is so amazing and inspirational!

  3. Ha ha, I would totally choose Ryan also, just don't tell my Man!! :) I LOVE September for 2 reasons. . . my birthday is the 18th and I LOVE the fabulous fashion filled September magazine issues. So great!
