One could say that I am slightly obsessed with magazines…only a lot. In my defense though, my mother signed up for as many subscriptions as she could. I wouldn’t normally be reading People Style Watch, Glamour, or Lucky but now I have a reason to! You see, growing up, I was always the Teen Vogue/Vogue girl who always looked at all the pretty pictures and clothes I could never afford. Now I have branched out into other magazines and I was surprised that I actually liked them!
Glamour is starting to become my favorite out of the group mainly because a lot of their articles are pure perfection. If you can get me to read your articles then you are a champion. This girl does not have a very long attention span so reading for long periods of time can be difficult. Anyways, I love pretty much everything about it!
Lucky has been my go-to magazine for where I can purchase the up and coming trends at stores I can actually afford, which is great, because I am currently unemployed! I love how there are always little stickers in the magazines for you to mark pages that you want to remember. It almost reminds me of my childhood. Don’t ask me how, but it does.
To get back on track, People Style Watch is just a short and sweet read that I love to have around for when my brain doesn’t want to think too much but instead it wants to take in beautiful clothes which is exactly what happens.
Now, Teen Vogue will always hold a warm spot in my heart because I grew up reading it. I couldn’t ever afford anything in it but that’s what gave me hope for the fashion industry. Especially being so young. It made me feel like I could do anything.
And lastly, Vogue. Let’s all just pause for a second……everyone good? Vogue is it’s own breed. Nothing will ever compare to it. If you want to feel a close connection with fashion, read Vogue. I feel like there is a sacred bond with every single person that reads it.Two things come to mind when the subject of Vogue comes up. One, it means you have good enough taste to pick up the magazine and two, you automatically respect the fashion industry just from taking the time to admire the art of Vogue.
I didn’t intend to vent about magazines in this post but then again, I’m kind of glad I did. It’s amazing how a magazine can shape a person’s life and not even know it. At least, that’s what happened to me.
6 weeks until this Lone Star girl takes the Big Apple for real!
