The September Issue

I was skeptical, but I actually really enjoyed this documentary about Anna Wintour and the making of the Vogue September Issue (Vogue's biggest issue of the year). If anything, go see it for Creative Director Grace Coddington, she's kind of hysterical and totally steals the show. Not to mention she's a creative genius. Or even Andre Leon Talley in his Louis Vuitton tennis get-up. It's a weird world in which we, eh em, they live.

Directed by: R.J. Cutler

Thank you Marc Jacobs

...for making safe sex so fashionable.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs... yeah, yeayuh!

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Radio City 9.23.09
One of the most amazing shows I've seen in a while. Maybe ever.
Oh and I'd like to thank Radio City for those blue glow sticks they put in our drinks. Those kept me entertained for the next few days.

Videos care of: Someone with a nicer camera than mine.

There's a bear at the Circus.

What? There's a bear at the Circus. Totally normal.

Disclaimer: This is not a real bear. It is simply my friend and fellow copywriter Mark Adler in a bear suit.

Starbucks' New Advertising Campaign, refreshing.

I really like Starbucks' new advertising campaign with smart, simple copy and engaging design elements. Some argue that this new campaign, created by BBDO New York, doesn't portray Starbucks' brand promise, but I think it's a refreshing, new way to approach its loyal market. I'm a fan. I'm also in advertising so other people might not know what the hell I'm talking about. Humor me.

My newest (well, I'm not really sure how new it is) style obsession.

Shoulder Pads! Yes, that's right. Raiding the Designing Women's closet as we speak. Check out these amazing finds that I bought last month at Agora in Athens, GA. You know you want to rock them.
