I just got home from work and opened the mailbox to find my latest edition of Burda Plus Magazine. I cancelled my subsription to Burda Style in March of this year only because I was running out of shelf space and thought I’d take a break from the monthly Burda Style and just stick with the Burda Plus…and GLAD I did!
Look at this latest edition of the Burda Plus…3 spreads out of 5 are taken directly from the Burda Style from LAST FALL/WINTER!!!!!!
I’m horrified! Do these people really think we won’t notice? I mean. Just because I wear a large size doesn’t mean I don’t like fashion!!!! Or that my brain doesn’t work!!!!! Ugggggh!!!!
I guess this is only a gripe for those that subscribe to both magazines. If you only subscribe to Burda Plus these would be new…but not really…they are from LAST Fall/Winter. Here, take a look at the At A Glance page:
All but 2 coats/jackets, 2 pants, 1 skirt and 1 blouse are new.
You know, one of the reasons I liked Burda was the value I thought I was getting for the price. But now after seeing this I’m certainly not going to subscribe to both magazines ever again. Why? What would be the point if they just recycle the plus layouts in the Burda Style to use in the Burda Plus?
There is an old saying that goes like this…”if you don’t like it, do it yourself!”. At least that is what we say here in America. If you don’t like it, just do it yourself. I’m not really complaining too much…only that I’d already purchased these designs…but man! I totally feel like if I wasn’t a size 14+ this never would have happened. Does anyone else feel this way?
So is this something that I can do myself? So should I just start designing for 14+ size women? Is this really so hard? Wouldn’t we all just love a little bit more selection? Am I on to something? Am I talking to myself (tap tap…screen…anyone there?).
