My Favorite Fashion Magazines

I while back a wrote a blog post about why I still love and swear by fashion magazines. So logically, I wanted to do a follow-up post about the magazines I personally love the most and why I think that they're so good. Of course my favorites vary over time, but these are the ones I absolutely love and read religiously right now.

i-D Magazine

Every third month, I get an i-D Magazine delivered to my door. i-D Magazine is what pushed my to try out the fishnet trend. I get almost all of my fashion inspiration from this magazine as it has a grungy, street vibe to it which I'm all about. I've known about i-D magazine for a while, but as of right now I feel extra drawn to it. The magazine is about youth culture, fashion, LGBTQ+, nightlife scenes and underground scenes around the world. They always feature queer people, POCs, small artists and you name it.

Dazed Magazine

Dazed Magazine, originally titled 'Dazed & Confuzed Magazine', covers radical fashion and youth culture. Like i-D Magazine, Dazed is a magazine of diversity and inclusion. They feature people of color, members of the LGBTQ+ community and smaller upcoming artists. What is so great about Dazed is that the articles are well-written, they are a magazine that knows their impact as publishers and use their platform to create debate, draw focus on important matters as well as write excellent articles that I, as a reader, actually want to read.

Vogue Italia

I first became aware of how good Vogue Italia is after an editorial featuring Violet Chachki and a bunch of club kids from New York City. I'll always support businesses, brand, magazines etc. that support queer culture. After becoming aware of Vogue Italia, I started obsessing over how amazing their editorials are. There's a whole lotta Mario Testino and aesthetically pleasing fashion shoots. I don't understand a single word of the articles, but I love the pictures so much – and as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Do you ever read magazines? Which ones are your favorites?

DragWorld UK 2017

Alright, so I've been waiting impatiently for this weekend ever since October last year when they announced that there was going to be a DragWorld (Europe's Largest Celebration of Drag) in London with all of my favorite queens. This weekend, DragWorld finally came around so me and my friends packed our bags and flew to London. The first day was just one big blur. So much glitter, so many wigs, so many things to look at and so SO many people all desperately wanting the get the attention of their favorite drag queens (including myself ofc). There is no such thing as personal space in these kinds of conventions which actually got me kinda down to begin with. Despite of a rough beginning, this turned out to be the best weekend of my life.
The first panel we went to see was called 'Gender Is Non-Binary' and it was with Violet Chachki, Jinkx Monsoon, Carmen Carrera and Bendelacreme. It was extremely informative and empowering and me and my friends fell even more in love with the girls on that panel than we already were.

'Drag Goes Pop' was the next panel we planned to join that day. It was with Adore Delano, Ginger Minj, Sharon Needles and Alaska Thunderfuck which honestly almost made me cry. I've never met Adore before and she is my biggest idol so when she was sitting there right in front of us, it felt as if I was about to faint. I was also extremely excited to meet, BUT wayyyyy too scared to talk to the Haus of Piss. However, we still went to see their performances that day and they were AH-MAZING. I instantly regretted not talking to them, when we left that they because I love them so freaking much.
The second day came around and we started our day getting an autograph from Bendelacreme. She is also such a lovely queen. Next up was the beauty panel with Miss Fame and Violet Chachki. Those two have such a great chemistry together and they look absolutely breathtaking in real life. I bought a t-shirt from Violet's friend and designer whom I have been stalking on Instagram for months. I didn't tell him, though (because I'm shy, as you know).

The highlight of my day was meeting Biblegirl, Rubber Child and Lisa Limbaugh. They're my absolute favorites and they are just so fucking great. It's such a weird feeling meeting someone you stan so freaking hard in real life. Bibledad (biblegirl's dad) snatched a photo of me for their Instagram whilst I waited in line to meet Biblegirl. When I finally met her she was honestly the sweetest, most kindhearted person ever. She took the time to talk to AND listen to her fans and then she wrote me the cutest message. We met them again throughout the day. It was one of the best days of my entire life and the weekend itself was without a doubt THE best weekend of my life.

I'm currently on holiday in Morocco and this is my 35°C attire. The shorts are nice and lightweight and so is the t-shirt. The good thing about the shorts is that they're in this lovely dark olive green color which makes it a great transitional piece for fall.

Suck Less: Where There's a Willam, There's a Way

I finally finished reading Willam's book 'Suck Less', but due to delays, lost packages and poor costumer service (I'm looking at you, Amazon), it literally took ages to arrive. Anyways, I wanted to do a little book review to anyone who's curious and love Willam just as much as I do!

'Suck Less' is a self help book covering all sorts of topics from beauty tips to fashion guidance to fitness routines to food hacks to relationship advice. It will bring you one step closer to understanding Willam's strange, yet wonderful mind and his extremely charming personality. 'Suck Less' is actually really helpful, but in a comedic kinda way. I think it can best be described as 'the Beatdown', but on printed paper. It's a hilarious book, but Willam also exposes a side of her which is very real and surprisingly intelligent.

My personal favorite chapter "How to SUCK LESS at STYLE". Remember that episode of Untucked when Phi Phi O'Hara freaked out about Willam name dropping brands? "If Pamela Anderson says she likes my shoes I'm gonna tell her where to get 'em". Well, that's actually one of the things I love most about Willam. He doesn't do that thing where you try to keep all the good shopping places a secret. He hooks a bitch up which is an act of kindness and severeness, if you ask me. I love that.

All in all in was a great read. I sort of wish I would have ordered the book directly from Willam's site and had it signed and dedicated to me instead of having to deal with Amazon's costumer service and extremely long delivery. SO I think you should go get your copy of the book from Willam's site. Here's the link, you're in for a treat!
