Probably one of the best surprises I’ve had in the past month was finding this bi-monthly print + digital magazine called DuJour. I’m sure you’ve heard of it in some form or another, it’s relatively new to the galaxy of magazines, but it sure does a milkyway tumble with its freshness. If I could put it in one word it would be Sweeeet – not in the sense of frothy pink cuteness of adolescence, but more in a sense of having the quality of a day-dream in a grown up’s world. (Also the Sweeeeet, dude sense) What I love most is the fact that the style of editorial varies from a hazy pastel theme, to rock heavy contrast theme, and also the fact that there’s minimal writing on the photography. I really admire that the magazine is more on celebrating lifestyle and art instead of merely trying to sell clothes that only a handful of people can afford.

So in one issue you can find fashion photography, illustration, DIY tips, fashion bloggers featurettes, shopping links… It’s virtually as thick as a phone directory, and the best thing is, the price is also as affordable. For $9.99 you’re subscribing for a whole year of fashion & arts phone directory, and I surely oogled their Vintage Issue more than twice for the past month.

  1. looks cool, will definitely have to look into it. Although I don’t know how they will be able to compete with all the personal style blogs that don’t charge a penny. We’ll have to see what the new digital age has for the magazine world.

  2. Ooooh! Never heard of it – but am loving the photos! Methinks this month’s Starbucks allowance will instead go to a (yearly!) subscription! Thanks for posting this!

  8. Thanks for the heads-up on this, especially re. how big it is, because I hate paying for magazines that are the size of a pamphlet (which is happening more and more these days).
