I never consult fashion magazines for clothes. Atleast over here, fashion mags usually profile only otlandish clothes. My shop owners know me quite well, and whenever I go there, they just show me whatever is the latest in fashion, and make appropriate suggestions. Thats how I like it, because they know my taste and usually recommend good stuff. Most of the times, I end up buying the very first thing they show me!

No, I wear things that I look and feel comfortable and what I choose is not usualy found in a fashion magazine, and when I judge other peoples outfits i mainly consider colors that match and being under or over dressed and other fashion faux pas.

I do read a lot of fashion magazines amd I love looking at the clothes. But I know a lot of that stuff would never look good on me. It's also kind of weird to wear some of the stuff you see in magazines in "real life." It looks great on a runway, but if you wore that as a day-to-day outfit, it'd look weird!

I cannot handle wearing the stuff in the magazines! It looks so horrible I can't imagine having it on me. I have yet to find something I liked in them that wasn't a real fancy dress that no one but the model could pull off wearing. LOL. As far as I am concerned comfort is always in fashion! I dress casual normally because my work allows me to do this and the way I see it is if someone has a problem with that it is their problem not mine. Oh sorry showing a little attitude I am! LOL.

hmm.. the way i dressed is inspired from the way others dressed for example, i once bought a stripped t-shirt because i saw some strangers wore stripped t-shirts too i thinks the strangers look cool with the t-shirt, so i'm thinking of buying such a t-shirt too but i don't think what i do is a copy-cat thing sometimes i read the magazines too, but most of the items displayed on the magazines are quite expensive.. hehee

I do read fashion magazines from time to time but I don't really consult them or seriously follow their trend. I think clothes have to suit a person, he/ she should be comfortable in the outfit and bring the style and taste of that person out. I think some of the trend don't really suit me that well and I just ignore or won't buy for the whole season. I do go to only one store to buy clothes and the owner knows me and my taste, so I really regard her more as my fashion advisor.
