By : Kapriz
Most women have some degree of interest in fashion, from just wanting to stay “modern”, if not
quite up to date, to those of us with more than a passing fancy, wanting to know what the latest must have items
are. If you're one with a passion for fashion, fashion magazines offer a world of window-shopping right from a cosy
chair at home. If it's a rainy day, so much the better!
Some people – un-fashionistas – complain that there are too many ads in fashion magazines. However, those of us who
are into fashion, want to buy or at least see what these ads are selling. Therefore, to the fashion-conscious
person, ads become content! Some of these ads have pull-apart pages revealing a whiff of the latest designer
fragrances, while others contain tiny tubes of lotion. Now who wouldn't enjoy an ad like that? Ads for designer

latest hair styling products and hairstyles. Make up is another popular topic. Lipstick colors change by the
season, as do eye shadows, as manufacturers vie with one another to produce color combinations suited to the newest
Shoes, handbags and jewelry are also seasonally directed, with heel heights going up and down, handbags getting
bigger, then smaller and costume jewelry changing on a monthly basis.
Even the costumes you see in fashion magazines, which you know you wouldn't wear on a bet, are still entertaining
as you peruse the photo, wondering who besides the model could pull this off as regular street wear.
Did I mention that most of the big name fashion magazines are hundreds of pages per issue? Yes, indeed, you've got
at least an afternoon's entertainment ahead of you, and you're likely to learn at least a few new fashion titbits
you lacked before!
