Style Crosses the Language Barrier

"Why are you buying those magazines. You don't even speak Spanish?" asked my husband as I deftly deposited a couple of glossies into our supermarket basket crammed with calamari, fresh fish and olives.
"I don't need to," I replied enigmatically.
In reality, there were two reasons.
One, there was a fantastic jewellry giveaway in Instyle Magazine and you don't have to be able to read to look at the pictures!
What I wanted to do was try and get a variation on the usual Fall magazines. I wondered if it would help give my wardrobe a European edge.
If I can't shop over the coming months I need to be more creative and what I intend to do is adapt what I have to suit my body shape with a nod to the fashion edits.
Here are the magazines I bought and a sample of the ideas I will be adapting over the coming season.
Apologies for the photographs but the magazines have creased transit!

I agree - you can gain a lot just looking at the photos!

When I visited Rome a few years back, I bought several fashion magazines. The men I know didn't get it, but the ladies sure did.
