The Soph-isticate


I-D Summer 2014

I picked up the latest issue of I-D in Barnes & Noble the other day, after drooling at every page, and it just reminded me of how rare that feeling is these days. I'll always enjoy the OG fashion bibles (albeit, on more of a surface level), but there are few magazines that actually excite me and leave me inspired. I've never bought or even fully read an issue of I-D, which is pretty surprising considering my compulsive glossy obsession, so I can't wait to read this one cover to cover. This makeup ed is pure GOLD.

Freja Does RUSSH

My favorite model and my favorite magazine, all wrapped up in one pretty package?! I literally can't wait to get my hands on the June/July issue of RUSSH, with the glowing and cheerful Freja Beha Erichsen on the cover. The only problem is that U.S. newsstands are so behind, they're still stocking the Jan/Feb issue. If I ever reach the kind of rich that only people who import in caviar for their weeknight dinners can brag about, I'll fly in my favorite international magazines fresh off the press (namely, Lula and RUSSH). A girl can dream..

One of my favorite editorials so far this year. Camille Rowe shot by Guy Aroch for So it Goes Magazine. Isn't she stunning? Follow her on Instagram here. I need that Oui/Non shirt..



These Zara high-tops really make me miss hip hop. I need to take a class soon - dancing's my yoga.

Cheap Wall Art

I've been slowly adding more photos to the mood bard part of my bedroom wall. It feels refreshing to put seemingly random pictures next to other pictures, so long as each of them means something to me. Deep thoughts about collaging at 9 a.m. (I love that she's looking at Patti Smith here.)
