Yesterday I went to the bookstore to buy myself a bunch of magazines. The summer isn’t the most inspiring time for magazines. They’re usually full with articles about how to look good in a bikini, miracle diets that make you lose half your body weight in ten days and luxurious holiday destinations to tropical islands……..so I started to look for something different and to my surprise, I found a wonderfull magazine called Russh. It’s an Australian bi-monthly magazine and their May/June ’09 issue is now in Dutch stores (altough their July/August ’09 issue is already published!!!).
What I like about Russh is it’s perfect mixture of retro and modern. I’s not as sentimental-romantic as Lula, but it’s also not a big parade of trends that only last two months. I usually tear out the pages of magazines I like to make scrapbooks, and I wanted to tear apart the whole magazine…. so that’s good!
Some images from Russh:

When i look at my female idols, past and present, it looks like a lot of them have one hairstyle in common. A hairstyle i myself keep copying; the full bang or fringe, call it what you want depending where you’re from..
It can look fiercely feminine whilst giving the girl in question an innocent and little-girl like look without looking too old for it. It frames the face and makes just about any face-shape look cute. Be it paired with long or half long locks or a sophisticated bob, if you’re into that Anna Wintour look. I’m inspired by the pics i posted and need to get my bangs trimmed just a teeny tiny bit, i’ll have to book that in somehow tommorow. Enjoy the pics and call your hairdresser! 😉
