in my obsession to assemble and archive a full year of paris vogue, i caved and bought two back-issues from somebody in france via ebay. i missed march '08, and i really wanted september 2007. so i'm up to date for 2008 (besides sept 2008, which i can't find here yet) and i'll have to go through my boxes once we move in to see what other issues i have. in an effort to cut down my magazine hoarding, usually i tear out anything worth saving and recycle the rest. but not paris vogue- how could i? i love flipping through old issues. you know you are doing something right when years later editorials still feel relevant.
i was also finally able to give chanel's blue satin polish a try. i'm happy that it has more of a black cast in some light, and brighter in others. i really want to get a deep, dark purple for fall.
