franloiacono 's Thoughts:

I know, I know…I’m like a tie-addicted lol Here you are my brand new bow-tie! lol I couldn’t resist…

In this post I’d love to talk a little about fashion magazines. I have no idea if you guys buy lot of fashion magazines or not. I started buying fashion magazines only for about two years now, and the very first one I bought was i-D. I remember it perfectly because I bought it at the library of the Tate gallery in London, looking for something to read while on the plane to come back home. Since then I started to buy i-D every month, it was like a fresh-air-monthly-rendez-vous. In my hometown only a library, as far as I know, used to sell i-D, so everytime I had to get there and it was pretty far from my home but definitely worth it!! I do like i-D style, I love their articles, their editorials, pictures and photographers. I like how they can relate to the fashion/art/music world. After i-D I started buying V Man (even if they put a Jonas brother on their last number cover lol), LOVE and L’Uomo Vogue. I have to admit that I’m mostly intersted into male fashion, so I look for magazines that explore that. Fashion magazines are for me something like a wide open window to a world pretty far from mine and that charmes me. And it was excatly like that when I bought my first i-D magazine in London.

What about you Chictopians? What magazine do you usually buy?

I really like this look! It is very classy, yet fun. As for magazines, I am not really familiar with men fashion magazines, but I am quite a consumer. I honestly subscribe to so many! I get Vogue, Elle, Lucky, Allure, W, WWD, and teen vogue. Magazines are so inspiring. Personally i like studying the runway and street.

I'm so awful, I rarely buy magazines. My best friend, typically has a ton, so I go to her house to read Vogue, Teen Vogue, Seventeen (for laughs), and I will read Nylon. I do enjoy Lula and Purple. But those are hard to find except for what I see online.

You said you were a substitute teacher? I would happily come to class every day, maybe even early I had a teacher that dressed like this. I'm a big fan of bows myself but I can't rock such a sweet bow-tie. (or any for that matter)

Yes I am lol But I usually wear more basic outfit at work ;) Thank you very much for your comment, that's very kind :))

i haven't bought a magazine in quite a while! though nothing can probably compare to its glossy pages, I feel like going on racked, the cut, chictopia, wwd, style.com and a lot of other things on the web almost supplements... ALMOST.
franloiacono
franloiacono on April 06
I think the web offers a lot too, but some magazines still keep their identity and i like that :) Thanks for your comment!

I see nothing wrong with being a tie addict when you pull it off so well! I'm pretty much "the usual" when it comes to fashion magazines: Vogue, Marie Claire, etc-- typical girl fare. I really should start checking out some Japanese stuff, I always forget whenever I'm out anywhere where they sell them.
franloiacono
franloiacono on April 05
You really should...japanese mags are the best you know lol Eheh...thank you so much :D
