This plus 50% off winter coats = 65% off that cute coat I want at Old Navy.
See you Thursday!
Point number 1 – I love this magazine.
It has everything I want…
1. It’s Canadian.
This is good for two reasons… the prices are all relative to what I know (i.e. I can go to H&M and buy that skirt and it is actually $21 and not $21 plus exchange) and the stores are ones I can actually get to (or buy from online).
2. The magazine fills its pages with looks, trends, specials, photo shoots and minimal articles. I’m not one to read (or write, as is made very clear by my blog and its lack of text) so flipping through pages and pages of photos and captions makes sitting on the couch after a long day at work very fulfilling.
3. The price!
On the weekend I was determined to buy the September issue of Vogue before it went off the shelves. Do you know what the cover price was? $6.99! Adam says… “you paid a lot of money for a book full of advertisements”. He’s right. But I guess that doesn’t make me any less excited to look at them all.
This months issue was $2.49. In Saint John you can buy this magazine and a coffee for less than $5. What a perfect way to spend a break.
ok so now to dig deeper!
Here are some “articles” I fell in love with:
(maybe I read magazines with post it “tabs”. don’t judge)
This issue is their fall trend report. The trailer for “The September Issue” said that in the fashion world – September is like the January. Awesome!
Here are some trends for fall that fashion magazine is all about:
Let’s look back in time at my fall trends and see how I did… I lose!
Fashion magazine tells you 8 things you need for fall… here I summarized in point form: do you agree with their picks?
What else should be there? What should be removed?
ok, Saint John girls.
Candice and I started doing this awhile ago – but she only buys Chatelaine…
We need to organize a magazine swap. Comment and I’ll send some e-mails to figure it out.
up next: LOU LOU, ELLE, FLARE and VOGUE
I’m going to update this blog almost hourly. I spend so much of my time poring over magazines, reading blogs and looking at websites. I’ve been enamored with Chanel’s website this afternoon – checking out the fall/winter lines. The Cruise has a few classic pieces while the ready-to-wear is making me drool. I should rename my blog: “If I had $1,000,000”. Or “If I was a size 4”

I’m so glad B&W is sticking around in such a huge way.
