So everybody’s been talking about the whole blogs vs. magazines issue and it’s something I’ve thought about a lot.
I subscribe to a lot of magazines – Elle, Bazaar, Nylon, British Vogue, Jalouse, Glamour, Teen Vogue – and I regularly read others like In Style and (shamefully) Cosmo.
I also read a lot of blogs, at least 40. (Thank god for Bloglovin)
What I look for is inspiration for my life. I follow the runway shows during Fashion Week/Month on NYMag.com and Style.com, so I’m not looking for anyone to show me what happened on the runways. Also, while I appreciate fashion as art, that’s not so much my interest.
Editors and fashion critics seem to be upset that people are turning to blogs because bloggers have no experience from which to judge beyond their personal preferences, and because editors believe that bloggers are being bought off by designers. (See here, especially the last two paragraphs)
