The Liz Tilberis Series: February 1995 VS. June/July 2012

I am behind on keeping up with magazines.  
I am only half way through the March issues, and its July.  
There was one exception.
Because I love the cover of the June/July Harper's Bazaar (Kate Moss?  In the middle of the ocean? Awesome.), I flipped through it's pages on the way up the stairs to my apartment.  
I stopped dead in my tracks as soon as the pages of 'What's Chic Right Now' fell open.  
Stark, minimal.
The photos let the menswear inspired styling do all the talking.
Exactly everything I want to wear, all the time.
Exactly everything I have wanted to wear for decades.  Ever since the blonde darling of the 90's, Amber Valletta, slouched and smoldered for photographers during the golden era of stark and minimal.
I realized while studying the pages of today's Bazaar, how lucky I am to have learned the fundamentals of fashion from Liz Tilberis.
Most importantly I learned stark and minimal will always be 'right now'.
