Fall 2011 Issue of C.L.A.P. out!

The third issue of the progressive women's zine I founded and edit, C.L.A.P. (Creative Ladies are Powerful) is out! This is our first "theme" issue, so many of the articles (all contributed by local, creative women) focus on careers/jobs/life choices. Back to school indeed! For more details, check it out here.

New Posts on the Ironing Board Collective

There has been so much going on lately that I haven't even been able to keep up on posting about my newest posts on the Ironing Board Collective! It's been a great experience writing for them so far. I've also been enjoying the other guest blogger's pieces as well, and definitely recommend checking them out.

In the meantime, here is what I have been doing for the IBC so far.

First, I wrote about a subject that is near and dear to my heart—magazines. Specifically fashion magazines, specifically about what I do and do not like in fashion magazines. I plan on writing at least a couple more pieces focusing on magazines, but this was a good starting piece.

This week, I took on local giant Target and mused about the massive buzz over their just released Missoni by Target line. Check that one out here.

Got a lot going on this week—finishing up an article for Minnesota Meetings and Events, have another piece in the works and putting together the fall issue of C.L.A.P., which will be released Sept. 23rd. So much going on, but it is all fabulous!

Guest Blogging on the Ironing Board Collective!

Design by Briarmade Designs

I am so amazingly stoked guest blog for the equally amazing Ironing Board Collective over the next couple of months! For those of you unfamiliar with the IBC, it is a sweet blog all about discussing fashion in a more cultural/philosophical/critical context than your typical "look at the outfit I put together from Forever 21 and photographed with my iphone" fashion blog. For September and October, the main writers of the blog will be joined by five of us guest bloggers. I'll be sharing my thoughts and ideas about mainstream fashion and fashion journalism on Thursdays, so be sure to check it out!
