New Blog Pick: I want to be HER!
I've had a love-hate relationship with Lucky Magazine for a while. When it first launched it was amazing. Then it got pretty overrun with schlock and I stopped reading. But recently I've picked it up again because I respect that they use their employees as models a lot of the time. It makes for relatable style that I can get behind. My favorite page of the magazine? For some reason I spend the majority of my time on the last page, where a caricature of Andrea Linett (one of the co-creators of the mag) envisions the perfect outfit for certain occasions, outings, and situations. Now my favorite page has turned into a blog that I obvi added to my blogroll as soon as I stumbled upon it. It incorporates the same cutesy graphics by using "off the street" models and tells you where and how you can recreate their look. The best part is that the drawing is just a jumping off point. You can get the look from head to toe or you can simply incorporate some of its elements into what you already wear to make it your own. It's fun new eye candy that will keep me inspired for those days when I stare in my closet and convince myself I have nothing to wear.
