The Way I Am

I was a little weary picking up the copy of Elle magazine at a local grocery store when I saw Mariah Carey's figure gracing the cover. She looked really good, and her voice is probably one of the best in the world, but her fashion sense is not something I find inspiration from. I was suprised to find that I really liked the interview Elle had with Ms. Carey. I also was suprised to find that I really liked the photo shoot. The magazine kept me entertained for the whole week long vacation. I didn't even need the other two magazines I brought with me (Lucky and NYLON.) I haven't started the new NYLON yet, but Mischa Barton Exposed quite caught my eye, not in the best way. What I loved about the August issue of Elle is the fashion spread, "Suit Up". I was enthralled with this fashion spread. I loved every single picture of it.

These two pages are my favorite of the spread. I love the blazer with the Karen Walker skirt. I need to get a studded belt! This is a great outfit for me to wear to school... and just look at the hair and makeup! Need I gush more? The checkered Armani Jacket is brilliant.

The white gloves on the picture to the left remind me that I am looking for a pair of gloves, like that, but black.

Ahhahhhahhh those gloves would be PERFECT!!!! The picture to the left is my second favorite outfit of the spread...it easily can be worn at my school...

I like the other gloves better, but these would work. Both gloves are from Carolina amato. I guess, according to this fashion spread, I need to be buying a nice fitted blazer soon!
Thank you Elle for a great issue!

I was debating whether or not to buy that issue, I ended up buying Vogue instead, but now I just might have to get it :] and yes I did take those photos.

Arielle said...

i liked these photos too especially the top left. I haven't read any of the articles yet -mariah didn't really seem that inspiring to me but i'll go read them now!

Ya Mariah has never really been inspiring to me at all. The article suprised me though, it wasn't all that bad. I wanted to get the issue of Vogue with Nicole Kidman on the cover because I like Hugh Jackman who stars in "Australia" with her, but I got Elle instead! haha. And wow those photos you take Lauren are realy nice.

I was really impressed by this months issue of Elle. I loved the bohemian-inspired editorial right before the Mariah Carey article.

I'm going out and buying that magazine because you posted these.
The first is absolute perfection.
maybe bad cover models are whats contributing to magazines lagging sales.

I NEED to know how to wear my knee length socks asap!!! I just don't know how to wear them! :( & gloves are awesome! I want lace gloves!

If your not afraid to go total prep I think the first page of the Elle "Suit Up" spread is a perfect example of how to wear the knee high socks.

Suit up was so cool and uniquely proportioned.

Emily said...

i also loved that spread! better than any of the ones I've seen in vogue or nylon recently. I love the hair, it reminded me of the Christian Dior show where all the models had that crazy teased hair.

keira antoia rose said...

Ahh yes I totally agree Emily. I have seen so much of the teased hair lately. My hair is soo flat though it's hard to do. And it's a pain to untangle. I love the look though.
