Hi guys ♥ I had a pretty productive day today~ went to Walmart with my mom!! Got a few things there, but my mom paid. heh.
For today's post, I wanted to write about something different; something that interests me.
I LOVE JAPANESE FASHION MAGAZINES!!
Their fashion and make-up spreads make me go all oogly eyed because everything is so kawaii! My style is no where near as fashionable as these girls', but I love getting ideas and seeing how their fashion world revolves. Another reason why I love Japanese magazines is that they often come with a cute little freebie - little tote or coin purse..one time I got a Coach poppy journal and another time I got a slippers. They really cater to their readers, and I love that!
I was able to visit Japan during the summer of 2009, and I got to experience how amazing the fashion areas of Tokyo (Ginza, Shibuya) and Osaka were. Department stores with 3,4,5 levels, and within them, tons of smaller boutique type stores. SUGOI! And, the summer time actually turns out to be one of their biggest sale seasons of the year. SCORE. I wish I would've done more shopping though...but there's always next time. ♥
I remember during my junior high/high school days, I would love reading and subscribing to ELLE girl, Seventeen Magazine, TEEN magazine, etc. I was pretty much a magazine junkie. haha. Now that I'm in my 20s, I haven't really gotten into VOGUE, ELLE, or other American magazines since their style doesn't seem to fit me as much...so I have drifted and stuck to my Japanese mags. Don't get me wrong though, the fashion spreads and ads I see in those mags are flipping gorgeous!
But yes, with my limited Japanese (4 quarters in college), I can get by in reading here and there if I really try. hehe. Yes, I'm half Japanese but, I fail with the language. :3
Anyways, my magazine collection has ceased at the moment since I'm not as close to a Japanese market that carries these types of magazine, but honestly...I always find something new when flipping through the ones I currently have, so it's all good. :]
So, I'm curious...Do you guys read any fashion magazines? Or even online?The world of journalism and fashion is exciting and endlesswith new trends forming and old trends retrending.
But, you know, it's not always about what's "in", but what interests you
and makes you, you. Now THAT is style (or swag if you'd prefer!)
Thank you for reading!!
I'm off to watch "The Adjustment Bureau." Hopefully it's good?
