Disadvantages: No intelligent articals, mindless fanshion tips and advice.
Feeling a tad uninspired in terms of what to review, I decided to sit down and read the magazine that arrived through my letterbox last week. I'm not a big reader of magazines but in my quest to line my pockets, I took out a subscription to In Style magazine via Quidco. The magazine was on offer with 3 issues setting me back £1 and the added bonus of £5.80 cashback meaning I was in profit. The cover price is actually a whopping £3.40 and the magazine is produced monthly.
As I started flicking whilst sat on my bed, I decided to hunt for an interesting article to pass the time. Instead I flicked from cover to cover without finding anything of interest or substance. The majority of the pages are dedicated to uber trendy, uber expensive fashion houses promoting their latest perfumes, watches and couture collections. The rest is the magazine's writers and editor explaining why you should buy the aforementioned uber trendy, uber expensive perfumes, watches and couture collections so that you can look like some Hollywood starlet or other.
I particularly enjoyed the 'Payday Purchase' page which suggests outfits to treat yourself to 'because you've earned it.' The most expensive of these selections is a garish ensemble costing £469. Unfortunately, my NHS pay package doesn't permit such extravagances! There is the occasional written article to be found. In the case of In Style, it would seem that most women actually want to know about the entire contents of a celebrities wardrobe. I for one don't and I won't be gulled into believing that some Hollywood A lister still chooses to shop at Primark and Oxfam where she regularly picks up vintage couture dresses for pennies.
It would seem this is a rather short review from me, but In style lacks any real content to review. If you actually enjoy looking at adverts, buy a bus ticket and gawp at the billboards as you pass by. At least I can be smug in the knowledge that In Style have actually paid me to flick through this tripe for 20 minutes.
Summary: There are far more important things going on in the world than this.
