Only you can save yourself from vapid mindlessness
Any magazines that feature a story on how to love yourself at any size and then on the next page tell you how to loose ten pounds in two weeks should set off the bull-shit warning in the mind of any person who still has one or two neurons firing in their brain. Cosmo, Elle, Glamour. I dislike reading magazines that promote ugly, overpriced clothing, insipid designers and eating disorders.
The Gentlewoman is a new lady’s mag that premiered on March 22nd. The magazine is geared towards a retro-modern style with a witty sense of humor. A wide range of body types are used to model clothing in a mater of fact way. No special “Curves Issue”. No “We included some fatties just like you!”.
The first edition includes an article on vintage undergarments and one on napping. NAPPING! If this mag could provide me with cake as well I would declare it my new god.
Other great alternative magazines are Worn and Lula. Modern, intelligent, stylish women of mental substance deserve better than the puke fest offered by the mainstream magazines that call to us with their sirens songs whilst we are in the beauty parlor or sending in line at the grocery.
