Magazine May-hem

114 Magazine May-hem

I don’t know about you but at the start of every month, there’s something I look forward to, immensely. Picking up the latest issues of my favourite fashion magazines! For the past year and a half, I have been diligently reading Grazia (the Indian edition) every month. Ever since late 2011 (it was the Freida Pinto issue that first struck my fancy), they have been gaining steady ground as a friendly voice of fashion and I find that as a magazine, they strike the right balance between trendy and affordable, cheap and chic, fashion houses and street shops, style icons and real, regular people.

The rest – Marie Claire, Vogue, In Style, ELLE et cetera – I keep browsing through and reading in between. Though I don’t follow all the latest trends, you’ll still find me neck-deep in stacks of glossy paper at any given time. And I can never think of discarding the magazines I buy (I already have one very full carton). I mean, so much inspiration + colours, and they’re perfect lift-me-ups for when the going gets tough. But I’ll ask you this: do you have just ONE favourite source when it comes to the fashion gloss-pel?

  1. You just got me tempted! I haven’t picked up any magazines this month and I can’t wait to grab one of these glossy delights! “Trends with benefits” love it!!

  2. I totally agree with you–it’s so hard to discard magazines with so much inspiration in them! I plan to use it as decor or a stack table when I have a large enough collection. One of my favorite sources of inspiration are mostly all the issues of Nylon (mostly for their design work!)

    1. OOH!! Nylon is one magazine I’ve never read but I’ve always been fascinated by the covers I’ve seen on Pinterest and wherever else. Must get my hands on an old copy! Good idea, about using the stacks of magazines as a little table of sorts or some kind of design element in the house… that would be pretty perfect, actually. *smiles*

  3. Beyonce looks really pretty! And those vintage suitcases are adorable! I think I want one, no, two, no, all of them! :-D
    And suddenly I’ve developed a liking for magazines thanks to you! :-)

    1. Those vintage suitcases are actually a stack of drawers, Racey. I want a suitcase like one of those though for travelling purposes! Makes me feel old school and interesting. :-D
