For many of us, the clothes in Vogue are more aspirational than attainable. That changes this month with a budget friendly issue featuring a new “Steal of the Month” feature and an “all items under $500” section.

This comes on the heels of news that for the first half of this year, Elle surpassed Vogue in ad pages for the first time in 24 years.

With Jimmy Choo doing a line for H&M and Marc Jacobs announcing his back-to-school, under $200 “Don’t Miss the Marc” collection it’s not surprising even the too fab Ms. Wintour has gotten on the cheap chic bandwagon.
