VOGUE Covers / Vintage

Published by cctadmin on July 7th, 2013

__________________________________________________________________________________________VOGUE has captured the imagination of its readers – & the culture at large since it printed its first cover in 1892.  I’ve always been fascinated by the extraordinary images that have reflected, and transformed the world of style.  VOUGE has produced some of the most beautiful, provocative & fashionable covers ever, in my opinion, from early illustrations  to photographs featuring a plethora of elegant models.  Here’s but a few I particularly enjoy….

I remember meeting my friend CHARLOTTE ROSS like it was yesterday; although in actuality it was in grade four at the age of 9.  For many of us – these early childhood friendships either wither and fade, or they can sustain a lifetime; Charlotte is one of those rare friends whom time and distance won’t ever change.  I pent last night with Char, along with DOUG & ANN.  ANN is actually Charlotte’s mom, so in many ways I grew up with Ann as a second mom.  I have countless stories; wouldn’t know where to begin in terms of sharing them.

I admire for her strength of character, and her passion for life.  She was in  a lot of ways my sister, my protecter growing up.  She has lived in Australia for over 10 years and I remain connected to her.

Thank you for Charlotte in my life.  Flin Flon has no shortage of blessings and experiences; that I was able to be here for this particular trip of hers means a lot (I’m not always able to be in Flin Flon during her trips home to Canada).  We have been afforded more time together on this trip than we have in a while.

Below are a few photos I took of her, and additional pics from old vintage CiRCUS & CREEM magazines that Doug pulled out of his personal vaults. To top it all off, Doug, Ann & I pulled out the instruments for the first time in their new digs (they no longer live in the little log cabin, and have instead traded it for what will be their retirement home) , breaking their new home’s musical cherry so to speak (here I go again with the sexual metaphors!).  It was great to share in music for Charlotte; next weekend we’ll do it all over again when we gather for another sleepover party which will possibly include the other two easy pieces (Chad & Derek) for a musical extravaganza!

The below are random LP covers of records Doug will enthusiastically share with me during our jam/rehearsal nights.
