Vogue for Spring

Leave it to Vogue Russia to fill their Spring magazine with edgy pics of leather and studs.  Throw in some rock stars for good measure, The Red Hot Chili Peppers.  Let me just emphasize that I am in no need of a leather jacket for Spring or Summer, however, I’m still lusting after the one shown below!  Have you ever bought some months in advance of wearing it?

Fashion for Spring : Anthropologie

Have you gotten your new Anthropologie catalog in the mail? I got mine last week and have been obsessing over quite a few pieces! I wasn’t too impressed by the March one but luckily I didn’t blow my entire Spring wardrobe budget, so I can still pick up some of these new loves.
