Fashion Magazines

VivaLaModa magazine

This morning we are feeling a wee bit better, but I have been more creative in my mind than with my hands. So this post will be a little different. I read a blog post yesterday by the fabulous Kristina of Inaluxe that got me thinking. She talked about how fashion and home magazines are always placing limitations on us rather than empowering us to express our true style. I almost never read fashion magazines for this very reason (plus they always make me feel fat), but I did a little research and came across a gem: Viva la Moda, a fashion magazine dedicated to personal style through the handmade movement and vintage items.

Viva la Moda is a bi-monthly magazine, and features fashion spots for adults and children. Additionally there are articles about green products and home decor. I was perusing the magazine and found a great article about Sicily and it was written by a good friend of mine, Judit Wild of Vadjuka! What a fun discovery. In short, this is a magazine that offers fashion inspiration, supports artists, helps the planet, and it is readable! WOW. I think my faith has been renewed.

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Just catching up on my blogs, and so sorry to find that you and Bronwyn have been sick, good to hear that you are starting to feel better.

The pictures from your previous post are lovely, (I adore moss and delight when finding new patches in my yard, and also love to plant different types when I find them.)

As for the magazine, thanks for the link. I feel the same way about fashion and decorating magazines... too limiting and one sided. I always feel like crap about self and home after reading one. Good to hear that there is something else out there!
