In my humble opinion, Vanity Fair has the best columns. I am typically the girl who flips through magazines for the pictures and very rarely read the articles (hence, why I don’t read Playboy) but every month, I always look forward to “My Stuff” and “Proust Questionnaire”. So, I thought I would take this time to share with you my stuff. Enjoy!!
