magazines are tricky. they can stimulate thoughts on colors, combinations, proportions, sending you off in 8 different directions with new ideas (hopefully your own ideas) or they can lecture to you ad nauseam about what they think you should have, and, if you're in a susceptible mood, after absorbing the not-so-subliminal shopping list of what you don't have, it might even carry over and infect how you feel about what you do have. a little exposure to newer, fresher clothes can cast a dark cloud over the tried-and-true. who's to blame for that, editor or reader?
what if a magazine featured clothes that you already have? what if you saw a beautiful layout based on clothing you've had for well over a year? would that feel tired and uninspired, or would it reinvigorate your appreciation for what you have?
how would that make you feel about your clothes?
how would that make you feel about the magazine?
