Teen Vogue is the only magazine I read on a regular basis. I've learned to embrace the extortionate prices of the beautiful items they show (mantra: I am not feeling that uncomfortable lump of pure green jealousy in the pit of my stomach, I am not..) and learned to love their spot-on editorials and intelligent articles. Try comparing one of Seventeen's omnipresent sexual-abuse articles with any one of Teen Vogue's and you'll get my point.
Hold it. I dont mind them showing designer. Let's get that straight. But what about those non-pricey, Gap/AA/Payless items they show? Surely I should be happy about this, no?
This here flat, was shown on the dance-inspired (which, btw, was ever-so-slightly yawn inducing) Shopping section of the February issue. Cute lookin' huh? The show is cute in theory, but in real life, it looks like one of those bandages used to shrink the feet of Chinese girls before the 1900s.
Okay, so the flat wasn't perfect. So what? My problem is: All of the cheap(-ish) items featured, be it a Gap shirt, Steve Maddens, say what, all are not so pretty in person, or on person. I understand, if I have such a problem with this, maybe I should go back to CosmoGirl hmm? All I'm asking from the people at Teen Vogue (can you hear me? It's me, Margaret) is to feature cheap items, that actually look good, even though they might overshadow some of the designers stuff, which we all know are advertising heavily through you.
