Two Fashion Documentaries to Watch Right Now

This weekend was really productive for me.  After realizing that Hilton Head wouldn't be hit by a hurricane, I opened a bottle of wine, read the September issues, and watched some fashion documentaries.  Though very different, (one condemns the fashion industry while the other celebrates it) they're both worth taking a look at.

The True Cost concentrates on the negative side effects of "fast fashion," or stores like H&M, Forever 21, etc. where we can all get on-trend clothing for super cheap.  Though at times it loses me--like when it goes into some deeply unsubstantiated claims on cotton growth, it's overall a very in-depth and excellent look at the ripple effect that fast fashion has on the rest of the world. 

If you know me in real life, you probably know how disappointed I am with this year's Vogue September issue.  Seriously.  Beyonce is on the cover despite never actually being interviewed and there only being four pictures of her in the entire magazine.  Normally however, Vogue is awesome and this documentary demonstrates why.  It really makes you appreciate the effort that goes into making all those fashion shots appear effortless.

  1. I love to look to fashion blogs, Pinterest, and magazines for winter fashion inspiration; how to stay chic while keeping warm. And in all of my scouring, I've noticed a definite trend for Winter 2014: grey perfectly paired with burgundy. Duster Coat
