This post is long over-due — hey, don't look at me like that! It's not my fault! — but do you really expect me to drag my laptop around during my vacation? If so, you seriously overestimated my determination and dedication. I don't even have a laptop! More on that later. Besides, I still haven't dedicate a post on here about how I'm officially back and everything, so I'm not really back. Yet. Shhhh. Anyway, my collaging skills are still a little rusty after not touching Photoshop CS3 for weeks(yes I'm still using CS3 because I'm too lazy to upgrade and install stuff) and I know no one wants to see half-ass collages, it's not like my collages are anything but half-ass. I should shut up and move on already.
Vogue Italia July 2012 — Before you think, "oh great. Now Marcia's gonna ramble on about magazines she can't get anymore because she was away on vacation,"
V Magazine #78 — Titled The Youthquake Issue, this issue of V is all about — surprise, surprise! — youth and stuff. I know! What am I even doing here, writing a fashion blog and making half-ass collages? Noble prize award for best thinker right there(don't google it, they made up this category for me). Back on the topic, this issue really is about youth. Full of fun stuff like an editorial appropriately named "School Daze" and another inspired by Instagram, you really should buy this issue. Or read it on the floor of your local Barnes & Nobles/wherever sells magazines in your side of the town. I mean, c'mon! Cults of girls dressed up in weird alien bobs and Comme des Garçons
and Balenciaga! Look at your life, look at your choices.
Oyster #99 — Last but not least(because you should always end the end of a list with "last but not least") we have Oyster. The cover is meh(as usual), but the editorials are kick-ass worthy(as usual). How could you not love something when it has Aurel Schmidt(one of my favourite artists, if you still can't tell), Tavi Gevinson, Shalom Harlow and Bambi Northwood-Blyth? All in one neat little package?!(post referenced) Besides, this issue is, and I quoted, "all about women power, from cover to cover the issue focuses on strong, dynamic women – models, artists, authors and actresses who bring something fresh to the table." Feminism and quality editorial?
