Coveting The Gloss!

24 January 2011

Is there anything better than a sneaky peek inside the homes and wardrobes of the chic and stylish (and the stylish not but that’s another story all together)? We think not and two shiny new blogs across the pond are allowing us to do just that and we love them for it!

The Coveted launched just three days ago and already has us hooked. Created by a team of three with backgrounds in fashion magazines it feels like a friendly invite inside the wardrobes of fashion insiders, editors and buyers whose style we’ve already been lusting over on street-style blogs. Think crisp, clear images of beautiful objects of desire against the background of each person’s home. Vintage finds and priceless heirlooms draped over framed snapshots, a latest purchase thrown on an equally lovely chair or a dress gifted by the designer hanging by the window with the light shining through it making it even more, well…coveted!

Now, we may have yearned to be allowed inside certain individuals’ wardrobe for a long time but until we came across Into The Gloss, Emily Weiss’ blog, we never knew we really wanted to see what was hiding inside their bathroom cabinets too! But it all makes sense now. Aren’t you equally fascinated to know what beauty products models, make-up artists and editors swear by, what secret finds they bulk-buy from Parisian pharmacies or what’s their guilty pleasure? We knew you’d understand.

From Jen Brill’s fantastic Chanel collection - she is a beauty ambassador to the label, after all - to T editor Sally Singer’s works-of-art nails and Anna Dello Russo’s ‘weekly massages, weekly facials, weekly pedicure and manicure’ mantra this blog is a treasure trove of information, not just with honest product reviews we can trust but with brilliant ideas of where to keep all the tubes of eye liner and mascara we somehow manage to accumulate. Hint; what do you usually do with your used Diptyque candleholders?
