Channelling Chanel!!!!

Friday, December 23, 2011







I have this thing for pretty fashion mags. I religiously buy em every fortnight, every month or even every week, turn through the pages, enjoy the colorful pic, take in the price tag with a smile, update myself on latest trends and throw them to my ever growing stack of mags. Most of the mags are hard to come by and this lady near the bus stand knowing my obsession with fashion mags stocks most of the popular ones. You should see the way her face lights up when I visit her shop. Every time I visit the book shop I return back with my hands full. My dad feels that it's a waste of time and money but, I beg to differ. These mags not just tempt you with high end labels but also publish some good articles. Mags like Marie Claire and Femina has something special for those who are least bothered about trends and fashion be it cookery, relationship advices, health advices and stories of REAL women!!!!. Even after all these I like mags to be closer to reality and that may be one reason why I am not a big fan of vogue. I know high end labels are every girls dream but a price tag of 2 lakhs for an ordinary bag is little hard to chew. One of those days when I was visiting the good old shop, I saw a black and white ad of CHANEL!!! at the back of this magz. The ad screamed classiness and I had to buy it (VOGUE) though I know that I don't have much use for this particular magazine.






This particular gold earring encrusted with semi precious stones is a gift from dad's best friend from Rajasthan. I love how royal the earring looks against the Chanel ad. It's one of my favorite pieces purely because it was gifted with so much love.

I absolutely love the fashion magazines :)
I had a monthly subscript of Elle till some time back and I had noticed that even though I was simply flipping through pages, yet I was able to see what will be the trend on the roads in a couple of months time :) :)
and those earrings are gorgeous :)

Lovely earrings! I'm a big fan of mags too, though I try to stick to Femina and Prevention :-)

@Purvi ...We have a dearth of Fashion magz here in Kerala...and I buy everything I can lay my hands on . As you said helps me in predicting the trends way before they actually hit sleepy city like mine.

@beingFab yup Femina is my favorite too, not over the top like Vogue...more closer to what I would like to see in real life....
