spring ads.

So it's been a while since I last blogged. (Before christmas if we want to be exact...) For me, I get really hyped on winter fashion for about five minutes--stocking up on scarves and oversized sweaters, begging for that camel pea coat, putting on my warm smartwool socks--before I become completely and utterly over it. That's where I am now. I'm tired of trudging through the slush and hibernating in my house. So I'll leave it to my fellow bloggers to satisfy your winter needs, while I move on to bigger and better things... just kidding, kind of.

I'm an avid magazine reader; I love Allure, Instyle, Vogue, Marie Claire, Nylon, and Elle, to name a few. Most people find the fifty pages of advertisements in the beginning of the magazine annoying, but on the contrary, I weirdly love pouring over the ads. Each designer's ad is like their own piece of art, reflecting what they hope you'll take away from their newest collection. (That, and just trying to sell the hell out of it.) Anyways, I'm blogging here to show you some of my favorite new spring ads, including some of my all time favorite models. Karlie Kloss anyone?
