I like my style – the magazine
I bought I Like My Style mag last weekend and have now had a chance to study it. An extension of the community-based style blog, I Like My Style, it has a really nice clean, identifiable design, delicious-smelling paper (sorry, I don’t know my expensive paper-stock terms) and is satisfyingly weighty while being small enough to fit in my Eley Kishimoto tote. Billed as ‘the first user-generated fashion magazine’, it’s a compilation of some of the best features from the blog.
All magazines now have some sort of blog brand extension, why shouldn’t the blogs have a paper version? (Hmm, Disneyrollergirl, the magazine… *ponders*.) This is a good example of blogs and magazines working in tandem. Wonder who else will follow?

Hi Style Crusader, I bought mine from Rococo in Elgin Crescent, off Portobello. It wasn't cheap though… £10!

I definitely will be checking out the mag as I work near Portobello!£10 Isn't bad if you think of it as a book of amazingness rather than a magazine :)
Very inspirational talk on friday, I'm the girl with all the blog questions. Becca x

£10 isn't too bad considering the price of some other fashion mags… (I can't ever say/write that without hearing Eddie from AbFab say "fash mag slag"). I know several bloggers who are now working on mags like Sketchbook and Schön! but I haven't seen a whole blog transformed into paper format before… Cool :-)

Hmm, very cool idea. Don't think I can justify £10 but could maybe find myself spending a lovely hour in a friendly mag shop sometime soon :-)

I bought the issue for 12€ in an A.P.C. store in Munich and I think it´s totally worth the price. (even though it smells really disgusting..)
