It seems a waste to just recyle a few hundred magazines which I'd been carefully stowing away for so many years. So I began painstakingly going through each periodical and tearing out any photos, articles, etc. which I liked. This seemed like a good idea at the time, but after I had filled several shoeboxes with these clippings, I realised I had a whole new problem on my hands. And so, I started a fashion scrapbook! It's similar to just a fat magazine, except free of Covergirl advertisments and trends which I don't like.
So I guess I just wanted to let you know that, yes, life exists outside the internet realm! I'll keep working on this scrapbook and hopefully share this with you more... I think it's an excellent way to cultivate your tastes and try out some new trends. If you have your own fashion scrapbook and have a link to it online, I'd love to see it and gather further inspiration for my own!
