However - it is hitting all around us. Mass firings everywhere.
Today Target is letting go a big bunch of their employees.
One of my favorite blogs - www.elasticwaist.com was shut down recently. All the girls who contributed to this sponsored blog also lost their day-jobs in the last few month (I started following their private blogs after Elastic Waist stopped, that's how I know).
And today - my favorite magazine - Domino - closed it's doors. The March issue will be the last one. When I first discovered this magazine I was amazed - finally somebody gets what style of house I like! Elle Decor, Vogue Living - all those magazines are too snobbish for me, not creative enough. I don't like the starckesque, emotionless interiors they show. I like colorful, friendly, homey, bohemian with a dash of glamour and a pinch of hippie and that's exactly what Domino showed in its pages.
I also just subscribed and haven't even received my first issue yet. I heard a rumor that I will be sent another magazine from the Conde Naste group instead. Whatever it is, it will not replace my Domino.
I think their website is still up for now if you want to check it out.
There is a new term forming in the media world - Recessionista. A Recessionista is a woman (or a man I guess or would that be Recessionisto?) who is a Fashionista but only shops bargains. Somebody who manages to look great on a budget. In the spirit of that I got myself a 7$ authentic leather Coach bag from the thrift store. It's a very old model (looks like from the 70s) but that makes it vintage, right?
