Every time I get a Lucky magazine I sit down with my scissors, cut out my favorite finds and paste them into a notebook (after jumping up and down with glee, of course). It’s one of my favorite monthly activities and I’d like to think it keeps me focused when shopping — spending only on things I really want — but in reality it probably only makes me want to shop more!
It’s fun to look back and see how many previous picks I now own or flip through the new issue and see how many trends I’ve already picked up on. Plus, I just like collages of the beautiful photography.
Last night I caught up on some reading and cut some must-have items out of the January 2010 issue. I don’t have a scanner to scan in my notebook collage but hopefully the image below will give you a sense of some of the great finds in this issue.
Can I have that adorable gold ring right now, please?
