Review of Architectural Digest September 2014

I usually read Architectural Digest as a kind of palate cleanser every month. But often and most secretly I find myself a little bored by all the “good taste” that money can buy. This month’s September issue had me in awe of three amazing stories with accompanying photographic spreads. 1. Tory Burch: I often find(…)

Review of Vogue Magazine September 2014

The September issue of Vogue has been out for a couple weeks now so we’ve had time to digest the issue of issues. Here’s what you should come away with: Wedding! Street Style Labels! Paris! Go Read A Book! Amazing Editorials! Weddings: Anna Wintour’s Letter from the Editor begins with beautiful photographs from her son(…)

Review of Glamour Magazine September 2014

Glamour is clearly in LOVE with Olivia Wilde. Of course it helps that Jennifer Aniston, last year’s cover star gave Wilde the seal of approval last September, and then there’s the “Do’s and Dont’s of Turning 30″ and “What Will They Think of Us in 75 Years?” columns she penned for the magazine. Wilde seems to(…)

Lucky magazine Review September 2014

One of the problem with digital editions is the inability to see exactly how many pages are in the digital issues. You can see how many pages per article but a global view of the magazine is obscured. Reading Lucky‘s September issue is the best way to spend a leisurely afternoon. It isn’t a taxing(…)

Review of Vanity Fair Magazine September 2014

Always articulate Vanity Fair usually has a fair bit of trouble talking about fashion but  the September issue of Vanity Fair breaks the mold: it is a dream for a fashion lover. A plethora of fashion articles interspersed with style-centric articles about About Frank Gehry, Marella Agnelli as well as famous madam Madame Claude will prevent anyone(…)

My Magazines Never Came–Or, How I Came to Buy an iPad

I’m gearing up to read the September issues after a two-month hiatus from reading fashion magazines. I moved and the magazines never followed! It turns out it takes about a month after your address change for your magazines to actually get delivered to the right place!?! That’s pretty crazy, no? Speaking on the phone with(…)

Which Magazine is the Best?

Twice in the past month I’ve been asked to give my opinion on the best magazine. The first time, a reader asked me which magazine they should subscribe to between Allure, Teen Vogue, Vogue and Glamour. The second instance happened during an interview for a mid-priced fashion company. “So which is the best magazine?” I(…)

Review of Vogue magazine July 2014

Who’s not in love with Lupita Nyong’o? I haven’t yet seen 12 Years A Slave and I’m in love with Lupita Nyong’o! The reasons for this are many but mostly it’s because of her poise, her bright mind, the incredible speeches she gave during awards season and the perfect wardrobe choices she and her stylist(…)

Review of Paris Vogue Magazine June/July 2014

I am obsessed with the June/July 2014 cover of Paris Vogue. The green, the blue, the red just exudes the heat of summer and obviously the heat of Natasha Poly. The fact that her breasts are covered by the surface of the water both adds and detracts to the sensuality of the photograph. One could(…)

Moving and Magazines

I’m moving. It’s a last minute kind of thing where your plans point somewhere (Toronto) and life veers off somewhere else (Montreal). The past two weeks have been all about packing and trying to figure out what to do with my stacks of magazines. Of course, my Vogues, American and French, (and a few British(…)
