Harper’s “Bazaar” Attempt to Make Me Spend Money

It’s hard for a hardened fashionite to admit love to a single publication, being that there are sooo many options, and no mere mortal has the time, or the bank account, to purchase and privy all the amazing editorials produced each month in lesser known titles like Acne Paper or Purple Mag, which is why it’s refreshing for me to be able to admit that Harper’s is my hands down, favorite big box, kind of the equivalent of Walmart to Dazed & Confused‘s mom & pop, fashion glossy.

Muse of the World: Christina AA-guilera

Christina Aguilera is quickly becoming my favorite diva trainwreck, especially since everything’s relatively quiet on the Whitney Houston front. Apart from flubbing the National Anthem, nearly falling at the Grammys and passing out in Jeremy Renner‘s bed, Aguilera also called her brother’s girlfriend a whore and threatens to fire anyone who even suggests she might have a drinking problem. Xtina hasn’t inspired me this much since belting “Beautiful.”

Matthew Williamson for Bulgari

These bags are beyond extraordinary. Matthew Williamson found some vintage inspiration when he designed his Bulgari handbag line.

Matthew Williamson for Bulgari“I had a pretty free brief,” the designer told InStyle UK, “so I skimmed the archives from about 1950 forward and came across the hexagonal shapes of the clutches that I embossed on the leather and that are also a part of the kaleidoscope print of the fabric bags. I added my own heart print for synthesis.”

If I don’t get my hands on one of these, I’m going to cry. But they’re clearly going to be hella expensive. “Obviously the Bulgari customer, who is a woman who appreciates great quality, glamour and luxury,” Williamson said. “In a way, they are the same principals of my own customers, although I see my line as slightly more bohemian and more relaxed.”

Sigh…
