September Vogue…and purple thoughts…

Posted in Fashion, Kate Moss with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 28, 2011 by Mj Rains

Reading Vogue today among other things since we’re not going out and braving the rain today due to hurricane Irene (should I capitalized hurricane, like a royal title?) grazing our area in N.E. Pennsylvania. Even in the lousy weather of this day, there are moments of enchantment. Despite the downed leaves and branches on the highway, and power-outages, and the cool winds, there is certain beauty in staying in, reading under a lamp, or writing a new blog post on a Sunday afternoon.

The September Vogue is stunning, once again this year, leaving me dazed, as in “overwhelmed”, not stupified as if I were hit over the head with a frying pan.  Absolutely love Kate Moss in this Alexander McQueen gown on the cover, perhaps their best cover of the year so far. No, not perhaps, it definitely is! And what would an avid reader of Vogue be with out gazing with pains-taking intricate detail, every ad the 758 page wonder has to offer?  I’m a tad disappointed in the Ralph Lauren ads in the opening pages. Compared to last year’s September issue’s ad campaign, Ralph Lauren fell a little flat for me. The Chanel ads following shortly after were splendid, of course. The article of perfection no doubt is the inside look at Kate Moss’s romantic wedding by Hamish Bowles.

And now just a few more wonders of purple…

Color therapy: purple via Style Estate

Purple is associated with the crown chakra, or energy center on the top of your head. Focus here
increases intuition (who doesn’t need that?), calms mental issues and psychological problems
(okay, put simply: over-thinking), gets you “out” of your own spaced-out head, and balances
your physical body energies. Or so.
Purple (or violet) is known as the color of wisdom.

Well, every girl needs a leopard print something, so Rachel Zoe says, and it’s a daring girl who wears it.

Are you hooked on purple yet?
