Steven Meisel continues his out-of-the-box photography concepts for Vogue Italia. Karlie Kloss takes a spill on January's cover, Meisel's inspiration possibly drawn from the models bailing on the Prada s/s '09 runway.

Side note: I know I've been extremely slack on my outfit posts (I think my last one was in the summer...to view them, click on outfits under LABELS) but I would really love to start doing them on a regular basis. It'll be at least a week or so until I start posting outfits because my photographer (aka boyfriend) is away for work.

Also, on a completely unrelated subject, I've decided on some New Year's resolutions (minus going to the gym). First, I want to start saving for really great pieces instead of just buying every cheap, trendy thing I see. You have no idea how much money I waste on clothes or shoes that don't get worn because its only until after I try them on that I realize its a style or trend that looks ridiculous on me. I died a little inside when I figured out that all the money I'd spend at F21 and Nasty Gal this past year could have bought these gorgeous Alaïa sandals. So, to initiate this new spending policy, I bought a pair of those black Balenciaga cork sandals from ebay which I have been obsessing over for eons. My second resolution coincides with the first: construct a budget so I know where my money is going every month. I wrote down all my expenses and bills and it was a bit of an eye-opener to see it all down on paper. I'm very excited about this because I'm pretty frivolous/careless with my spending and I think having a budget will help.
