Musing: Vogue Australia

In Fashion, Fashion Heat, Good Look on January 31, 2011 at 6:15 pm

Well, well. Now don’t I feel like Andy Warhol right now.

All my money goes into doing my hair, buying kicks, and fashion magazines. I’ve tried to stay away from those magazine stores. But shoot. I go in, think ‘no big deal. I’ll just buy one. Okay, maybe two.’ Those friendly guys behind the counter leave me alone, and I end up leaving with stacks. And at least three in my are more than $10. The Australian magazines tend to be the most expensive (actually, I lied, the crown goes to the Italian editions). But I’m learning to narrow it down to the bare essentials.

Vogue is an essential. So, with the exception of the Italian, Nippon and Spain editions – it’s not that I don’t like them, it’s just that one would leave no room for cost-effective ones – I make a conscious effort to buy them every month. And hey, I don’t always read them, but I believe that by just keeping in your person, the creative energy will wear off. Sometimes, it actually works. Anyway, out of all my collector editions, Vogue Australia is in my list. However, I haven’t found the magazine around in quite a while. Why isn’t it in Toronto? Well, I’ve been hearing some drama about strikes going on with our distribution people. And, well, quite frankly, that’s not my problem. Right now, I feel a bit out of the loop. I do feel it’s a bit under-appreciated compared to its counterparts, but I value the magazine, for reasons that are personal. And no, I’m not from Australia.

And so we have the March issue of Vogue Australia. Looking all sexy, I can image the colour bursting through its pages. Man, I do hope things get cleared up soon. I’m feeling a bit empty.
