Off the Stands—A Monthly Magazine Review

May 2011
Shop til you Drop
Harpers Bazaar

Most women are too time poor to flip through even one fashion magazine a month, let alone several. Welcome to Off the Stands, a monthly magazine review featuring reviews of a selection of fashion magazines currently on the stands.

As an avid reader, shopper and blogger, I dig through the month’s magazines and pull out the highlights—saving you time and money.

This month, three trends are reported in multiple mags— velvet making a resurgence, patterned pants are coming on strong and (my personal fave)...the color orange as  a must-have!


Leather Bottoms Abound —especially shorts!
D Capes in various forms are a MUST! Long, short, solid, patterned, simple, embellished
D Something new and fun? Go for the belted trench vest. Hip & happening!
D It's a Ruffle Revolution! Find them on tops, skirts, sleeves, hemlines...everywhere.

Shop til you Drop

D The entire May issue is dedicated to online shopping! Whoop WHOOP!
D Trend alert — the Peter Pan collar. Not sure about this one...tread carefully!
D Loungewear as daywear. Upstyled trackies & sweats? Hhmmm...
D Love the workwear section with lots of helpful how-to's for different career vibes. 
D Diggin’ the navy and kahki color combo recommendation accented with gray. 
Tres chic!
