Prefall is here and I am ready to start sharing ideas and looks again. I am excited to see the looks my fellow bloggers are going to share. I'm anxiously looking forward to it!

Truth be told, the heat and I are not good friends. I love fall and winter and I think winter clothes are much prettier. That is why I am always very excited and looking forward to the September issue of my favorite fashion magazines.

However, lately every year has been more disappointing then the previous. What is up with all the ads?!

Don't get me wrong, I love the pictures and all, and I get the business perspective of having all those ads, but there has to be a line where ads do not outweigh the actual content of the magazine. It feels like the issues are mostly about ads now and less about fashion articles. Another thing I particularly would love to see is more affordable items next to the designer ones, so we can mix and get inspired realistically.

I think magazines should level more with their readers and think of every young woman who is searching for their own style without breaking the bank, not encourage them to in-debt themselves thinking they only fit in by wearing what they are shown.

What do you guys think? Any thoughts on that?

Much love,

Kate
