Okay, I’m lying… this is my fourth time in Hollister, but my first time buying anything from that store. Yes, I know… Hollister smells like adolescents. You can smell them before you even walk into the store. The ONLY reason I even stepped foot in that place was because Johanna is obsessed. The place is so huge in Germany that there is a line out the door and she could never get in. So now that she’s in the States she takes every opportunity to make sure we stop in the store while at the mall.
At the checkout line something caught my attention. Magazines! I love them… but mainly because I really want to shoot for Vogue, Elle, and Nylon and love studying the spreads. As I’m picking up the latest issue of Nylon I notice a new magazine I had never seen before. However, there is a face I recognize on the cover, Rumi!
Rumi is one of my FAVORITE fashion bloggers. Her style is so simple and glamorous. She graces the cover of Foam with five other bloggers (none of whom I have ever heard of before) for the first ever Blogger’s issue! That’s what sold me to pick up the magazine without even flipping through the pages.
I get home and start reading and I realize how much I really enjoy this magazine. I’m loving the spreads and the article featuring the Bloggers. What’s also great is not only did I find five additional fashion bloggers to cyberstalk, the magazine listed a whole slew of fashion blogs for me to practice my voyeuring technique.
I’m really happy I found Foam. It’s seems like a nice fresh, REAL, magazine!
