Charlize Theron on VOGUE September 2009 Cover

VOGUE September 2009 Cover - Charlize Theron | Tops II Bottoms - Fashion, Shopping, Street Style

VOGUE Covers are what dreams are made of. Okay, perhaps my apparent regard to Anna Wintour’s taste may have caused an over-statement but, heck, most of the covers I’ve seen so far has been exquisite. I especially love the one with Drew Barrymore, which I think was on the April 2005 issue. She (and the over-all effect of the cover) looked utterly divine.

Going back to present, we have the opportunity to check out the latest — before it hits the stands.

Admittedly, one of the faces that I truly find appealing belongs to Charlize Theron. And it’s reportedly on the cover of VOGUE September 2009 issue. Stunning, I should say.

Anna says ’40s is the Look, RED is the Colour, and Boots & Suits are Back. How’s that for some Fall Fashion Fun? It’s time to prep up for the onslaught of the latest Fall trends. Surely, this is one issue to look out for.

Fall Accessories: Camel, Sand and Tan

Things are looking up in the accessory department — bags, in particular. Word has it that anything that’s close to the camel, sand, tan shade is the IT thing for them arm candies. Best if the material is leather, which only gets better with wear. Yes, in this case, older is definitely more appealing — properly aged, of course. Hehe.

To give you folks an idea, here are two gorgeous pieces that I wouldn’t mind owning:

Fall 2009 Trend: Racking Up Sensual Silhouettes

Weather turning chilly wouldn’t automatically mean a losing battle for sexy ensembles. Come Fall season, women may very well enjoy the luxury of parading their, er, racks as fashion turns to a trend that leans to the more sensually, and not to mention, sexually stimulating silhouettes.

Cardis for Fall

There’s something peaceful about outfits + cardis. They appear casual but maintain a quiet elegance. I like the idea of wearing cardis. Streets out west will be littered with stylish folks in cardis come Fall.

Here are a few of my favourites seen at Ralph Lauren.
