lula



i got the second, and latest, issue of lula. it captures one metatrend succinctly, with the requisite list of school girl favorites: marc jacobs, charles anastase, ossie clark, etc. it's a bit too fluffy and tongue-in-cheek for me at times, but it's nice to see a fashion mag that doesn't really act as a grand arbiter of values, or wax psuedo-intellectual. my favorite thing about it is that it does a very good job reminding me of the kind of in-between land girls occupy in their early adolescence; even though there's the budding recognition of sex and seduction, it's still a girl's world ... so the best part is that there are NO BOYS ALLOWED.
