A Good Vintage Read
When I was younger I subscribed to several mainstream fashionmagazine, and I looked forward to reading the articles and pictures each month, but as my taste shifted more and more to vintage I became bored with the main stream fashion press. No matter how many articles celebrated personal style in each issue it seemed the message was the same: dress alike and spend a lot of money doing. Also there is always something wrong with you: either your too fat, too short, or too old, but if you follow a punishing and expensive regime then perhaps you can be fixed. Gradually I let my subscriptions run out. I still miss reading magazine though which is why I was so excited to hear about V and Oak magazine. This magazine focuses on vintage and one of a kind style and I read about it on the wonderful Chronically Vintage blog. The beautiful Jessica of Chronically Vintage is featured in the magazine and is having a fabulous give away on her blog, a one year subscription to the magazine. I have entered and I suggest anyone else who enjoys vintage does so as well. Win or Lose I'll be getting a subscription to V and Oak.
