    While I don't actually "subscribe" to any magazine for anything. I do find myself picking up a copy of Ladies Home Journal, Cosmo, or what ever happens to be in the rack, whenever I find myself in a waiting room. Be it at Dr., salon, dentist, waxologist. Lots of fun reading in some of them.

    Cosmo Quizzes rule!

    I can't walk past a Cosmo without picking it up

    Ladies Home Journal and Better Homes and Gardens come to the house. And I'll pick up Glamour, Cosmo, even 17 if I see one. They all help. So do videos on YouTube.

    Um... subscribe to Vanity Fair (for the articles ... ) and usually buy Vogue, W (seen the new issue with Mr and (new) Mrs. Bruce Willis on the cover? OMG!) and Elle on the newstand.

    Love the new and super style-y looks in mags like Interview, V, Bazaar and the foreign Vogues... not that I could ever afford most of that stuff ... but gee, lotta good ideas there!

    But also peek at anything with fashion that I see laying around offices or gf's place!

    I used to subscribe to Vogue and Glamour, but I found both of them to be completely useless. Flip thru once and directly in the bin.

    Mostly pictures of not very nice looking scrawny women in ugly shoes and weird poses. Lots of airbrushing & ugly (imho) women.You'd think if you were a photographer or designer you'd have the sense to hire some one who can tell the difference between good looking and ugly.....

    All the Best,

    I like Elle magazine as it has a good focus on fashion with the occasional freebie. When I travel or get to an international newsagent it's also interesting to see how the different international versions vary.

    My top three:

    1. "Vanity Fair," tho not strictly fashion, a good chunk, plus meaty, interesting articles. Plus enough celebrity dish, for bar/cocktail party bantering

    2. "InStyle," it seems more "nut 'n bolts"/how to, than many, so like it a lot.

    3. "More," my favorite, and likely germane to most here, as caters specifically to gals over 40...cheers,
    Paula

    I'm a cheater. I go to the supermarket when they're busiest, pick the longest line, and read the mags while I wait. Then I put them back.
    Some causes of crossdressing you've probably never even considered: My TG biography at:http://www.crossdressers.com/forums/...=1#post1490560
    There's an addendum at post # 82 on that thread, too. It's about a ten minute read.
    Why don't we understand our desire to dress, behave and feel like a girl? Because from childhood, boys are told that the worst possible thing we can be, is a sissy. This feeling is so ingrained into our psyche, that we will suppress any thoughts that connect us to being or wanting to be feminine, even to the point of creating separate personalities to assign those female feelings into.

    I enjoy 'allure' for the makeup articles and to see the ladies in the ads.
    It takes a real man to wear a dress.

    I don't subscribe, but I have found myself reading them if they are available, either at home or in the doctors/dentist/etc waiting room.

    I love Cosmo because it's a little bit "****ty"....but Glamour is more truly feminine...IMHO.

    I subscribe to InStyle, Allure, People's Style Watch, Women's Health, Fitness, Women's Day, Family Circle, Weight Watchers magazine, and Backpacker.

    And I usually buy Shape at the supermarket.

    The really good ones for shopping, fashion, and makeup are probably InStyle, Lucky, and People's Style Watch.

    Best is experience, practice, shopping a lot, getting advice from other women in your life, seeing what other women in your area are wearing and doing with hair and makeup, going to professional hair stylists, manicurists, and periodically having your makeup analyzed and done by the department store cosmetics people or by MaryKay or Merle Norman.

    I don't subscribe but I usually read Glamour, Marie Claire, Elle and Vogue and I found them very useful regarding clothing and makeup tips and fashion trends.

    They are much more interesting than Popular Mechanics!
