Another superbly ahead of time issue of Teen Vogue came in the mail today! It’s as if those guys over there at TV are in some sort of space-time paradox and they can release an October issue on the, what, fourth day of September? (I saw Halloween candy out today too!)
Taylor Lautner is on the cover, which I don’t appreciate greatly. I think it’s a waste of an issue when a male is on a woman’s magazine. The cover girls should be iconic and role model-esque. Not men. But that’s just what I think….
"Charlotte" from Poseur!
“Forever to search for the flame” is the quote at the top. It is from Bat for Lashes’ song “Daniel.” I sketched this one, along with the following, myself!
"Melissa" from Poseur
WordPress sure crunched these down small. They look very nice fully-sized. This is “Melissa” and the quote on hers says “loyalty provided by Nikkeesha Kool.” If you’ve read Petty In Pink, yeah, you know what I’m talkin’ about, girl. 🙂
Pun intended. 🙂
I wish I could wear dark nail polish. But the thing is, I’m so pale, and look like Adam Lambert every time I go for the Revlon “Midnight Affair.” It’s a sparkly dark blue. Adam Lambert. This makes me sad, because he creeps me out a little.
So I was searching through my horror of a closet when I stumbled upon what I believe to be September 2008’s CosmoGirl!issue with Lauren Conrad (“The Hills”) on the cover. I look through it, reminisce on last year’s trends, blah, blah, blah. Then! I got to the Beauty section. The first page is all about berry-colored dark nails. Which I now love. Or atleast just the red and dark fuschia colors. (:
The polish used here is CND brand in “Baroque” (the red polish on the left) and “Velvet.” Remember that this is exactly a year old, and — I checked on it — these colors are no longer sold. Boo. But they have a nice collection now, anyway.

Try taking a hint from Karen O (or maybe just tone down the head dress a bit):
No head dress (headress/headdress) in sight!
Oh. There it is.
Radiating some of the weirdest music, Bat for Lashes is really fun. And, I discover a little too late, that their frontlady Natasha Khan has the coolest style I’ve seen in a long while. It’s blitz (pun!) : indie + eclectic + bohemian + hipster + Native American + who knows what + a little hint of lady-like (tulle headwear) + Lady GaGa (she ditched the pants).
There's that tulle!
Those grampa undies are AWESOME.
But honestly, I want those shoes. ^ This is at Lollapalooza.
Everyone loves this girl. She’s the store-stealer, British tabloid-megakid, NYLON prodigy. How could you not, really? She just gets what she wants. Oh, I see the contradiction in that….
But I do like Peaches. Her style, rather. Much like I like the above poster. ‘It Brits.’ Daisy Lowe, Peaches, Georgia Jagger (MY FAVORITE!!), Lily Allen, er, that’s all I can think of…. EXCEPT ALEXA CHUNG!!! Senorita Awesome TV Show is cooler than Lily Allen + Peaches combined! (But not as cool as Georgia, for the record.) I love It’s On with Alexa Chung. So funny. So digital.

This is EXACTLY what I want to wear on my first day back. It’s decided. This was my inspiration, from Poseur: Pretty in Pink:

I am too lazy to cutoff the scanned-in sides of the pic. Enjoy!
