I got this for $5 so the price was good. But had I reviewed it in the store first I would not spend regular prices on this magazine. It is OK to thumb through like most have said but it is NOT a great magazine. I cant tell what "AGE" it is for. I cant see many people in their 20's or 30's affording clothes in there...not real people especially... so I am guessing it is geared for rich celeb types that have money to burn. So far I have seen one article that I may read... but mostly ads in this. It is OK for the price but I wont be renewing the subscription. It did come in 4 weeks though for the first issue.
I've been really disappointed for a while now with the changes Marie Claire has made. While it's held onto to the "real world" stories, it's fashion content is useless. I always loved Marie Claire because it was fashion that one could actually wear in everyday life and I always found myself ripping out pages to save for outfit inspiration later. It's now become a pseudo-Elle with busy pages featuring awful expensive high fashion crap that looks tacky and no one can afford. I've been holding out for a while now hoping it would get better but I've just been disappointed again and again. It's not what it once was and after being a constant subscriber for 6+years I will finally be canceling my subscription. It's a shame.
I'm not sure exactly who the intended audience is for this magazine but apparently it's not middle class women in their mid-20's. If I or any of my friends followed the fashion advice in this magazine, we'd be broke! If you can afford to buy $400 blouses and $600 sweaters, it might be an ok choice for you. There are tidbits here and there that I found helpful in the magazine but those were few and far between. Overall, the issues of this magazine that I received were not appealing at all.
I ordered back in September. I understand that they might not have shipped right away. I waited until November, then called. They said I was not scheduled to receive any issues until January because that was the next cycle. I said fine. I was a little irritated, but fine. I called again the end of January, after I hadn't received an issue, and was informed that it was in the mail. It is now March and I have have received nothing. I should have listened to the other reviews stating the same problem, but I let the cheap price sway me. That, and i thought, how can they not send ANY issues? Well, its true. And not just with this magazine. I am on here today to write a review from the other magazine from this same company that I have not yet received. I would give no stars if I could. This seems simply outrageous.
I dont have anything to say about the content of the magazine......Im here to warn people about their distribution!!!! I've got the first 2 issues on time, no problems, but after that its been ridiculous!!!! First, I didn't receive the magazine for 2 months in a row.....after emailing them like crazy, the finally told me they'd ad 2 more months on my subscription and that wouldn't happen again. But they couldn't keep up with their word.....my June issue arrived on my mailbox just on the 20th and today, July 4th, I haven't received my July issue yet!!!!
