After refusing to renew my subscription to Vogue, I decided to fill it's spot in my monthly lineup with an old friend of mine, Harper's Bazaar. I subscribed to Bazaar for years. Loved it dearly. But then, along with a new editor, the magazine got a new look. A look that I didn't particularly like. So I let my subscription run out.
But this past year, Harper's Bazaar has been grabbing my attention from the magazine stand almost every month. Stunning covers. Beautiful editorials (in a land of ever increasing unflattering, ugly, dark editorials). It has been looking fresher and cleaner than ever. I have grown quite smitten with the new look and easily made the decision to add my name to the list of subscribers once again.
So imagine my delight when I opened my mailbox yesterday and found the colorful glossy cover above staring back at me. Thrilled beyond words. Good decision. Good decision, indeed. I do believe that this is THE most gorgeous magazine cover that I have EVER seen. Truly, I do. And I am so excited to see what the coming year will bring to my mailbox.
Thank you, Harper's Bazaar, for being the bright spot in the American fashion magazine world. It's so nice to have you back.
