Where My Grrrls At?

It’s impossible to know what Saint Valentine, the pious fellow for whom V-Day is named, would think of the pink glitter and chocolate-laden holiday we celebrate every February.

MAG Style: Wear it Loud and Proud!

As the effects of our current political climate, a Donald Trump White House and the rise of so-called alt-right activism in North America ripple through the cultural waters, political dressing is trending. Protesters of all stripes — feminists, white supremacists, antifa, nationalists and social justice advocates — are outfitting themselves to match their political mindsets. This type of political dressing is not the dress code of politicians, nor the mere “rise in skirt hems,” because of rising stock markets.”  This is individuals and groups using everyday dress to express their political outlook.

Spring Trends

The following is not meant to “cause-a-pause,” but if you’re Kim K. or Beyonce, or anyone else mildly attached to her curves, washboard abs, or adulthood, then take this next bit slowly.  All of the loose, carefree, billowing fabrics, all of those cute smocks, and all that layering we saw on the Spring runways are not about showing off those particular assets. Don’t worry, assets will always find their way back!
