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?
