To Fold or Not To Fold

This is gonna be short and sweet:

All the talk about all these fashion magazines folding could quite frankly be giving me the start of a nervous breakdown.

Come on Wall St.! The entire fashion industry including every girl in the U.S. who obsess over these glossies are counting on you!

Trying to stay sane with all these rumors...

Nina Ricci Spring 2009 RTW

This just reminded me of something...

I don't know if it's just me...but I automatically thought of this Sex and the City Episode when Carrie is wearing the Dolce and Gabbana jeweled underwear. I guess Trovata loves Sex and the City as much as the rest of the world!

CosmoGirl Folds

So last week, one of my fellow interns told me that her sister-in-law told her that CosmoGirl was folding. This was strange for many reasons: 1) The teen magazine is just a few floors above us and 2) I hadn't heard anything on the fashion/gossip blogs!

But, unfortunately, it is the sad truth. The first thing I did was googled "CosmoGirl folded" and sure enough there were results. Then, I mentioned it to my internship advisor because I knew a fellow Wagner student actually has/had an internship at CosmoGirl. She told me that indeed the magazine was over.

So today I talked to this student, Laura. She told me how devastated she was, especially when she got the news from her editor who was in fact crying. I told her I didn't blame her because God knows that I would burst into tears if something happened to MC. Luckily, we have Nina G, and I think that will keep us around for a little while...God willing.

Laura also told me how her internship was not ruined because of the folding. She did initially have stories planned to run in the February issue, but since the magazine is ending with their December issue, it is a no go. However, the editors knew that the interns need this for college credit, so they agreed to keep the interns for the magazine's website. She gets to work on topics such as "Hotties of 2008", etc. She also commented on how the interns are going to get video cameras and record themselves around the office to put on the website "to show what it's like when a magazine folds".

It's scary that the print magazine is a dying industry. I pray that somehow the glossies will resurrect themselves, because reading fashion spreads on the computer is NOT the same as holding those shiny pages in your hand.

Clothes can't say "I love you"..but..

Clothes can't say "I love you"...but...

They can hug all the right places.
If you choose the right ones..they always flatter you and
compliment you.
They are always exciting
and if you do get bored with them, they don't mind if you switch them around.
They boost your confidence.
They keep you warm.
No matter how long you've had them, they'll always stay around until YOU decide to throw them away..and they don't hold it against you.
If you love them, they'll last forever.
They keep you safe.
They make you feel sexy.
They don't use YOU, YOU use them...and they prefer it that way.
They don't talk back!
They don't mind if you alter them..just a little...

So...clothes can't say "I love you"..but..
that also means they can't say "goodbye".
