Going Away

Common Closet will be traveling to a far away land where computers don't yet exist. Hopefully you can keep yourself occupied finding Yogurtland, reading Vogue, and enjoying the beautiful New York City sunlight.
Until then,

Kate Moss's Vogue Cover

Here is Kate Moss on the cover of the new Vogue. Shot by Mario Testino, he looks gorgeous and quite matronly.

Yogurt Land

It seems as if New York has been blown away by frozen yogurt franchises recently such as Red Mango, Yolato and of course, Pinkberry. For all of you who enjoy these soft serve desserts, here is something to look for. Yogurtland only has one location in New York (so far). Unlike Pinkberry (and it's followers), Yogurtland has tons of flavors including strawberry, peach and chocolate. Yes, you heard correctly, chocolate! Even better, Yogurtland is self serve, meaning you can take as much as you please and mix as many flavors. The toppings are unlimited as well, and include fresh fruit, chocolate chips and more. Once you are done serving yourself, you take your cup to the cashier who weighs it and then charges you $0.39 per ounce, affordable!

Yogurtland is located on 267 Bleeker Street, in Greenwich Village. Check out their website until you get there.

Lindsay's Leggings

It seems like now a-days, every celebrity is spreading their wings into the world of "fashion." Most are unsuccessful in "designing" anything original, yet keep their "designs" quite pricey. (Emphasis on the quotations marks.) These stars include Lauren Conrad, Paris Hilton, Perez Hilton, Kate Moss, Sarah Jessica Parker, Victoria Beckham, Beyonce Knowles, the list goes on. Lindsay Lohan would never let herself be excluded and has decided to create her own line of leggings. She deserves credit for sticking to something she knows. Although her leggings are expensive, she did succeed in being innovative. Knee pads and zippers one spandex is quite cutting edge.

Kanye + Louis

Kanye West has been a fan of Louis Vuitton for seasons. He has been spotted at fashion shows and sporting signature monogram luggage. The two are now teaming up to design a line of shoes, sounds interesting given Kanye's sporty collection of footwear.

Karl Is the New Face of...Safety?

Chanel designer, Karl Lagerfeld has been sporting a yellow vest in a French safety campaign, in a advertisement reading "It's yellow, It's ugly, It doesn't go with anything, But it could save your life."

Richard Chai for Target is Remarkably NICE

Target has been advertising new designer lines for years now, they are all okay, but nothing more than that. Things that you might wear, but won't rush over to an inconveniently located Target store to buy. Richard Chai has raised the bar. His new collection is incredibly stylish and chic, each piece is wearable and quite charming. Entire outfits cost about $90 each, and more can be seen here.
