Hey, it’s been a loooong time 😦 Sorry. I’ve been working a whole 12.5 hours a week at my on-campus job… woe is me. Poor, poor me. Seriously, I shouldn’t complain. But all those hours certainly add up and take away things like sleep and blogging time! I’m going to have even more limited amounts of time now (so.. less time..?) because …. …..
…. I got hired as one of the staff writers for the Fashion Business magazine!!! YOWZA!! I’m so, so excited to share my input in this publication. I think it’s going to be a great outlet for U of M students interested in fashion. You can see it here: http://issuu.com/fabmag/docs/feb2011?mode=embed&backgroundColor=000000&layout=http%3A%2F%2Fskin.issuu.com%2Fv%2Fcolor%2Flayout.xml and I have a little section on page 12. Cute! I’m meeting with my other FAB mag team members this weekend to talk about what we want to incorporate in the magazine. I really liked the photoshoot in this first issue (I think I own one of the scarves they used in it…?). I think it’d be fun to talk about the best second-hand/vintage stores around, or new stores nearby (Forever21 just came to Rosedale Mall). I also want to cite blogs, books, magazines, and movies related to fashion. Even articles for DIY clothing or cooking would be great to put in the magazine. There was also a men’s article that was quite entertaining to read. More of that would help spread the magazine’s appeal, for sure. I want to see more artwork/images/illustrations in the magazine. I want sections for student feedback. I want more streetstyle pictures, too! (Celebrity emulation, avant-garde street pictures… you name it!)
Any ideas for what makes a great magazine? This FAB mag is a short one, so go ahead and click on the link and scan it–what pops at you in a good or bad way? I’m so intimidated…I am going to have to really work hard to make this publication the best it can be!
Alsooo, I’m supposed to model for Kathryn V Sterner (LOOK HER UP… her clothes are amazing) for a TV show tomorrow night. I’m so intrigued!! And … of course … very intimidated.
I want to do a post on my favorite foods next. I have been eating so many cookies lately… 🙂
