Flipping Through Elle

Catching up with February’s issue of Elle with a cup of tea on a rainy night. Here’s what’s inspiring me this month.


I was happy to see all-American sweetheart, Reese Witherspoon, as February’s feature girl. Did you know that she’s been on three of Elle’s covers? On the right indicates the cover shoots from 2007, 2009, and the current issue. Is it just me, or is Reese getting more gorgeous with age?

I love the how-to guides that help you pull off a runway trend for your everyday life. Key features for styling a super feminine peplum top include linear bottoms, choker necklaces, and chunky shoes.

“Couture Chop” with Joe Zee was a fun article. Zee challenged seven stylish trendsetters (including Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller) to create a new design out of a random assortment of garments. With the help of a tailor, you wouldn’t believe what these visionaries came up with.

I’m always inspired by different eras in fashion. This throwback editorial had me day dreaming of ways to modernize these retro fashions into my own wardrobe.
