Do You Keep Your Fashion Magazines?
Oct 17 2008
i do only sometimes. i used to keep EVERY single one and i had subscriptions to just about every one, but i've found that over time i haven't really gone back to look through them, so it hasn't made much sense to keep the clutter. now if there's a story our a layout or something memorable about it (i.e. keira on the cover) then i'll keep it. otherwise it hits the recycle bin, or finds itself on my assistant's desk
Nice to see that I am not the only one!! I keep 'em forever!
I just recently stated buying magazine more regularly and I keep the ones I really like, mainly because I think how cool it would be to pull them out in 10 or 20 years and look at the old fashions and stories - I want my daughter to see them! I know that sounds kind of dumb, but that's what I used to do with my mom's old magazines before she finally threw them away - I guessed she passed on her habit to me...
I tear out the stuff I like but I don't keep the magazines. I don't have the room. I keep cooking magazines if their are lots of recipes I like otherwise I would tear out the whole thing!
I tear out pages I find inspiring then recycle the rest of the magazine. With the torn out pages I usually make a collage and post it on my wall, or frame it after, or make it a cover for my binder. That way I have inspiration everywhere I go! :)OR if its like super super great I put it in a plastic sleeve and make it into a little inspiration book with a funky binder.

I get too many to keep in my apartment. So far I kept all my Vogues since I started getting them in 2006, but anything else I just cut out pictures that I like and keep those on the wall of my closet for inspiration! Much more space-efficient.
I keep all my Lucky magazines. I've been obsessed with that magazine since it first came out and I am such a pack-rat with my old issues. I hate to throw them away.
I keep all the magazines that I buy. Period
I used to be obsessed with keeping them, but now I share...I either give them to my neighbors' daughter, a budding fashionista, or just leave them somewhere like S'Bucks where someone will love them as much as I.
I don't necessarily use them forever as inspiration, but I do keep them around.
I used to be REALLY bad about keeping old magazines (I mean piles and piles) even though I only wanted a few articles/pictures from them. I learned a great way to cut the clutter- I cut out the stuff I want to keep and put them in binders, in those clear plastic page insert things (they sell in Target by the binders/file folders/etc.) I cant even explain how much room it has cleared up.
I keep them for awhile but some of them I eventually feel I can part with as long as I cut out some of the pictures/articles I want to hold on to. Some I don't intend to get rid of though. I'm currently considering getting rid of recent Nylon issues (since the magazine recently really sucks) but the older issues are keepers since the magazine was way better then.
I keep a look book, too. It helps me focus on the stuff I really want, takes up less space, and keeps my style from being too all-over-the-place.
I keep the classics, my favorites. I feel there is no need to keep all of them. otherwise it would take up wayyyy too much space.
I keep my magazines. I sometimes tear out the ads or articles that I really like & post them up around for inspiration.
I keep them all for a few months. Then, I go through and cut out my favorite pictures and articles and paste them in a look book so I can reference my favorite outfits and recreate them. That way, I get to keep my favorites and it takes up a lot less space.
Yes, Some. I will always keep ones with Kate Moss or Agyness Deyn on the covers or photo shoots with them. I also keep ones that mention artists I like or other celebs I love like Nicole Richie or Victoria Beckham.
Yes, I keep most of them and it drove my ex crazy and my current bf crazy. I just can't throw them out because I get inspiration and want to do cross referencing.
Agreed fashion4ward. My collection is kinda ridiculous....
I'm like this with my Vogue and InStyle Mags. I drive my boyfriend nuts about it but I can't throw them away! :)
I have an OCD problem about keeping all of my magazines. I can't throw any away ever.
