The weather today was quite lovely. Although in real-world Fall you can’t wear cut-offs like the model above, I felt the same sense of angelic splendor as I waltzed into work this morning. Then I logged onto Twitter and saw Conde Nast as a trending topic. The following Twitter breakdown ensued:
I was sad for about 35 heartfelt seconds. Then I realized that although I will wholeheartedly miss Gourmet magazine (which was 70 yrs old!), Cookie, Modern Bride and Elegant Bride, Conde Nast has been eluding a much needed reality check for some time now.
Now, I love me some Conde Nast mags but I can’t afford anything in them (and neither can anyone I know). Therefore, having three bridal magazines that all advertise Vera Wang gowns, 5 carat David Yurman rings, and Tiffany wedding china isn’t really necessary. One will do just fine, and that is exactly what Conde Nast did today. In a tragic, but necessary move, they shaved off the excess.
Gourmet, Cookie, Modern Bride and Elegant Bride, you will be missed.
