Because I’m considering advertising with them, the publishers of a fantastic new bi-monthly magazine called Classic Style were kind enough to send me a copy of their premier issue, which is due to launch this month.
From the creators of the Fedora Lounge and Makeup Artist Magazine , this retro lifestyle magazine caters to people whose tastes reflect their passion for the elegance and glamour of a bygone era. Their website states "Classic Style is for dashing men, and dishy women. Lovers of hats, high heels, cocktail hour and classic cars."
Chock full of beautiful photographs, retro graphics and interesting articles on vintage clothing, style icons, home decor, retro hot spots, shopping and beauty tips.
A few of the topics covered in the first issue are the style of Cary Grant, collectible 30s and 40s Monterey furniture and the return of the fedora. (What guy doesn’t immediately become sexier when donning one of these? I was thrilled to read they’re making a comeback!). Also, gorgeous fashion spreads that include clothing from Stop Staring and Revamp Vintage and award winning British makeup artist, Morag Ross’s, step by step guide to how she created that elegant 30s look for Cate Blanchett when she played Katherine Hepburn in the Aviator. (Now you too can have that silver screen star look).
All and all a very entertaining read. It put me in the mood to slip into a some vintage Daniel Green slippers and satin lounging pajamas, put some Ella Fitgerald on the stereo and sit down to a nice chilled champagne cocktail.
Looking forward to the next issue. Magazine can be found at Borders and Barnes and Noble bookstores at the end of January or if you subscribe to it through their website, you’ll save 50% off the newsstand price.
