Wednesday, September 01, 2010

It’s inevitable, really. No matter your level of steely determination or the limits of your bank account, you will covet something—a maxi (non-mini) skirt, a cashmere sweater, a shiny new pair of penny loafers—once you take a gander at a September fashion magazine, stroll down Fifth Avenue, or simply notice how everyone around you has emerged from the sweltering New York heat fashionably clad in the season’s newest trends. And if you are as neurotic as I am, you’ll need a way to capture this new fashion vision as it takes shape.

360 Staff Pick: Mogwai Live
