Why not?

So everybody’s been talking about the whole blogs vs. magazines issue and it’s something I’ve thought about a lot.

I subscribe to a lot of magazines – Elle, Bazaar, Nylon, British Vogue, Jalouse, Glamour, Teen Vogue – and I regularly read others like In Style and (shamefully) Cosmo.

I also read a lot of blogs, at least 40. (Thank god for Bloglovin)

What I look for is inspiration for my life.  I follow the runway shows during Fashion Week/Month on NYMag.com and Style.com, so I’m not looking for anyone to show me what happened on the runways.  Also, while I appreciate fashion as art, that’s not so much my interest.

Editors and fashion critics seem to be upset that people are turning to blogs because bloggers have no experience from which to judge beyond their personal preferences, and because editors believe that bloggers are being bought off by designers.  (See here, especially the last two paragraphs)

Fun for Fall

Today Style.com put up their list of the must-haves for fall 2009.

Obviously lists like this are pretty subjective, or at least they should be in a world with free-will.  But regardless, I look to the runway for inspiration and their picks aren’t bad.

Their lis with my opinions (photos after the jump):

1. Something faux – I would definitely say that fur faux or real is very of-the-moment – it’s everywhere on the streets.

2. Over-the-knee boots – see here

3. Something sexy – I’m not sure this is a trend – didn’t Justin already bring sexy back?

4. Color – I do like color, but in general I would say I don’t see this one sticking in New York or Paris

5. Something draped – This one isn’t on my must-have list, but ok, draping is flattering.

6. Leather Jacket – I would call this a classic, so it’s always a must-have.  I saw a ton of great jackets this season, and I’m still in search of one for myself.

7. Strong-shouldered jacket – meh, I’m not a fan of the 80s.  If you’re purely following trends, then this a definite must-have, I’m a little more hesitant.

8. Something surreal – um really?

9. Decorated leg – again, not sure on this one.  I’d like to change it, I think trousers would be better for this list.  I’ll post on it later, perhaps.

10. Something studded – ALWAYS.  Studs make almost anything better.
