One thing I love about U.K. magazines is that they occasionally give me presents. My keychain is a light-blue heart from Aspinal of London that I got with an issue of Tatler a while back. This month, while in London, I picked up an issue of Elle that came with a Paul & Joe Sister ruffle-sleeve t-shirt. There was even a choice of four colors. I pondered the army green but went for my usual black.
If U.S. fashion magazines started giving me gifts, I would forgive them for putting celebrities on the cover instead of models. I miss the good old days of beautiful covers that weren’t pimping someone’s new movie … but I can be bought.
