Take your tips from the June Vogue and spend $343,368

Vogue's Grace Coddington, Anna Wintour, and Victoria Smith attend a fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

Just because it's a fun thing to do, I guess, Noah Veltman, a data journalist at WNYC added up what it would cost to buy all the items and products featured on the editorial pages of the June 2014 editions of ten major magazines -- Vogue, InStyle, Cosmo and others.

 He's not even talking about the stuff featured in ads. At the top of the charts is Vogue... with a cumulative price tag of $343,368. Coming in at number ten? Real Simple...almost $16,000.
