Ebene, at your service. How are you? I am feeling fabulous, if not a little sleepy. I will write another post to properly introduce myself and to thank you for your warm welcome but this could not wait. In case, you have not heard, Italian Vogue made history by publishing a limited collector’s edition called “The Black Issue,” 50 and more pages of amazing pictures by the uber-talented Steven Meisel of black models and celebrities from Iman to Tina Turner and every young, older and cult-like ebony beauty in our recent history. For those of you who happen to read Vogue (American, Australian, Japanese, British…yes I know, I may be slighly obsessed), you understand the MAJUH nature of this publishing feat. Therefore, the demand for this gem of a magazine has been INSANE!
So, this week, I spent a good three hours, ok more, trying to track down a copy in the DC area. After many a phone calls, and stalker visits to Borders, I found a couple of copies, which I had to go get this morning before 8, thereby explaining my sleepiness, in my pyjamas downtown DC (don’t worry the only people who saw me were the sweaty joggers and the homeless people who were also just waking up). So…I took a couple of copies, NOT cheap at $20 a piece but REALLY worth it bellas (and bellos, if you are reading)! When next will you able to pick up a well-respected glossy with a woman of African descent on the cover, in the ads and through the majority of the editorial layouts??? All right, I am getting to the point, if you are in the DC area, call or run to News World at 1001 Connecticut Ave NW, (202)872-0190. If not, I have a couple of copies on hold so email me at email@example.com and I may be able to mail a copy to you at your cost. Hurry! I don’t know how long they will hold them for me. 🙂
Have a wonderful week-end!
