After a hectic month we finally got to flop down on the couch with a glass of wine and a stack of fashion glossies from November, and the new issues for December. There are so many yummy articles, features, and slideshows we had to share a few with you. Whether you are looking for inspiration, a great deal, or the best winter trends, the fashion mags have us covered. Here are a few of our favorite pieces that you can find online.
"Shop Like a Fashion Editor" helps us mere mortals shop and accessorize on $400, $2,000 and $4,000 budgets. Reality lies in there somewhere.
"Fall Accessories Report 2011" highlights Top Trends Under $150 in four categories: Bold Brights, Lady Luxe, Tough Chic, and Get Cozy. As Christian Siriano recently pointed out to Art Attack, accessories are a great way to freshen up a wardrobe without breaking the bank.
"Rooney Mara: Playing With Fire" is a profile of the girl who is The Girl--as in, with the Dragon Tattoo. The article claims the part of Lisbeth Salander is "arguably the most coveted role for an actress since Scarlett O'Hara in "Gone With the Wind". Complete with fabulous slideshows from the red carpet, and Mara's Vogue shoot.
"Diane Keaton: The Big Picture" is a profile of Diane Keaton, complete with photos by Annie Leibovitz. Do we really need to say more?
"Rosamond Bernier: The Flaming Debutante" begins with the line, "The world's most glamorous art lecturer turned memoirist, Rosamond Bernier, who recently turned 95, has tamed wild animals, flown her own plane, and befriended the likes of Henri Matisse, Leonard Bernstein, and Frida Kahlo." I kept reading as much to enjoy the prolific use of commas as to learn more about Bernier.
