One Step Closer to my Dream…

5 October 2008

So I decided to wait a while before I announced this to the world.  Long story short: I had received an internship from the editor-in-chief of new magazine Dujour after she stumbled upon my blog. Mind you, I’m still giddy with joy & disbelief!! It’s simply one step closer to my dream; it seemes so surreal still! I currently write articles for the site, covering fashion, shopping, and celebrity style. Check it out at dujourmag.com!

Dujour Magazine, started rather recently by Letitia Burrell (my lovely boss) is a new magazine (you can purchase its debut issue on the site!) And what separates them from every other fashion magazine out there? “We are the new definitive voice for international emerging fashion and eco-friendly style. Born in response to excessive celebrity coverage, flailing irrelevant content, and elitist inaccessible features, Dujour is America’s first independent, internationally distributed, eco-friendly fashion publication dedicated exclusively to emerging designers. We actively seek out the most exciting, innovating and coveted fashion and lifestyle brands every issue alongside the world’s most creative photographers and stylists. Dujour reflects the intended way magazines are supposed to help consumers approach fashion to create their own distinctive style. Fashion forward and trend aware, Dujour showcases global talent through notable photography and strong content. We don’t dictate what’s the final word in fashion, we present what’s new in style.”

Reader’s Choice Awards: It’s time for the survey! Dujour is running the RCAs for its next issue; it’s much like that of Allure’s annual event. Do try answer all of them if possible! 🙂

1. What’s your favorite fashion blog, the one where you go to for the latest styles and updates on trends and news?

2. What’s your favorite blog to go to for personal fashion inspiration?

3. And of course, which blog is the ultimate fashion “Bible” you go to for everything – style, news, inspiration, etc.?

4. Who’s your favorite Etsy designer?

5. What’s your favorite Myspace band or singer?

6. What’s your fave online magazine both new and old?

7. Which indie brand do you think will be the next “it” brand covered by every fashion magazine?

8. What’s your favorite online shopping site for affordable fashion?

9. What’s your favorite online shopping site to window-shop but you’re too afraid of the neverending hole it might create in your wallet? 

  1. Net-a-porter.com
  2. Shopbop.com
  3. Other (please name it!)

10.  What’s your favorite organic/cruelty-free beauty product?

11.   What’s your favorite organic/cruelty-free designer/brand?

  

One last thing: Vote HERE, on Letitia’s personal blog, for the next cover YOU want to see on DuJour!

 

xoxo.
