Friend Friday - Outside Influences

Friend Friday
The Fashion Beauty Friend Friday group was created by Katy over at Modly ChicEvery week Katy puts together a set of questions and on Friday if you want to participate, you answer them on your blog and link back up at Modly Chic
1. What magazines do you subscribe to?
Vanity Fair, Glamour, Marie Claire, InStyle, Allure, Harper's Bazaar, Elle and Vogue. And that's the order I read them in :)
2. Do you watch any fashion TV shows?
Project Runway. The Rachel Zoe Project.
3. Beyond blogs, what websites do you frequent for fashion inspiration?
It really depends. When I see something I like, I look it up, then that website usually leads me to another, and it continues. WeHeartIt and Pinterest are big inspiration sources lately, although I'm just getting into Pinterest.
4. Advertisements play a huge role in forming public opinion about a product or brand… what ads do you like and why?
I've always loved the Apple ads that used songs that weren't mainstream. Pretty clever for a lot of reasons - and I usually loved the song.
5. Do you own any fashion books?
Of course. All the Sex & the City books, the Chanel one I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, Rachel Zoe's book, a couple of InStyle books, the Who What Wear book and plenty more I'm sure I'm forgetting.

If you're interested in FBFF, go to Modly Chic for more information then e-mail Katy if you want to join the group.

I'm with you, Katie -- fashion TV shows, magazines, and books have a huge influence on me!

Wow. I can see what Jared meant with his 'magazine comment' now!

That is a HUGE area of opportunity for me. Reading, tearing, filing... just anything other than letting them pile up as I have been.

Torrie said...

p.s. Can you believe Twitter's down now??

The nerve.

Anja said...

girl, you definitely have all my favorite magazines as subscription! So need all of those, well, maybe Vogue, Elle, Harper's and Vanity Fair would be enough!!!

Woa baby, lots of mag subscriptions, haha. I get like 4 but I don't pay for any of them, haha...

Carrie said...

Fun post! I enjoyed reading it. And maybe i'll repost it as well!


Shea said...

Whoa lady, you sure do have quite the subscription list!! And I agree about Apple's commercials--they do have good music.

Isabel said...

turns out i usually get around to reading my elle magazine once the new one arrives in the mail. lol. maybe i shouldnt have subscribed for 2 years.

Fashion Tales.... said...

I love and read all of my mags, even if it's at a later date! lol Enjoyed reading your post. -xxoo

Jessie said...

I always love when fellow bloggers fill out these kinds of things! I love all magazines as well!


Kimberlee said...

Wow you subscribe to a lot of magazines! I can only keep up with my two subscriptions :p

Jamie said...

I have those same fashion books and I love them. I also used to have tons of magazine subscriptions but I feel like I never read them anymore with all the blogs I read so I sort of let them all lapse. I miss Marie Claire!

Jess said...

I've been meaning to check out Pinterest for a while now... sounds really cool.

Happy Weekend Katie!

Wish I did subscribe to that many mags but I don't. I do like reading parts of them online though
