frankie giveaway

It would appear that I wished you a happy weekend prematurely, because I have something else to write about: Frankie magazine. This is the only magazine that makes me regret that I dropped out of journalism school (but not really) -- it's funny and smart and oh so pretty. Last night I had a dream that I was going on a trip to Melbourne and I was using Frankie as my research guide.

This morning I walked to the subway and stopped in at the magazine shop on the corner. I found the current issue of Lula (there was only one copy left!) and the current issue of Frankie. Since I love Frankie so much, and since you've all been so sweet with your lovely comments, and since I bought an extra copy, I'm going to give it away! Some of you might not be able to find it where you live, some of you might not be in a position to spend $15 on a magazine right now, some of you might never have seen this wonderful, beautiful magazine in person. Let Frankie be your new BFF.


Please leave a comment here if you're interested. I'll randomly select a winner on Sunday evening (say, 9 PM my time).

  6. What a thoughtful giveaway idea! Scouring the city for the latest issues of Frankie and Lula has been on my weekend to-do list for the past several weeks - still no luck! They're my hands-down favorites.

  8. awh, what luck you have good magazine stores there, the ones here are terrible!
    I love this magazine because it's wonderful and because my family's nickname for me is Frankie!

  12. ok this is really amusing because after your email i was going to come here and tell you that i dreamt about lula last night hahah. my dream was not as calm/cool though..my dream was simply about searching the book store racks, asking for help, waiting for the clerk to help me (he went away because he didn't know what it was), and then give up quickly. i did end up finding it but later realized it was an imitation lula??? who dreams these things?

    side note- i could see you writing for a cool magazine such as frankie, for sure.

    i would love to be included in this drawing even though you've already spoiled me haha. it will even out i promise..

  14. Oh! I wish I could find this. Wow and you're giving it away? That is so sweet!

    And thank you for making today a little more exciting.

  16. I was looking for a copy of this the other day, but with no luck.
    I always enjoy reading your blog, it is very lovely!

  17. Such a great magazine! I'm sure there is somewhere around here that sells it (I hope!) but I have yet to find it.

    Oh, and if you do ever get the chance to visit Melbourne I can promise that you will love, love it.

  18. I would love a chance to win a copy. I can't get any decent magazines near me without a trip to the city.
    I have not seen Frankie but once bought Lula and loved it.

  19. I've been looking for that Frankie mag everywhere. No luck! I see it everywhere! I wish I could bring back the 4 leaf clover for this draw! ;)

  23. I love Frankie, whenever I hit up the "big city" I grab copies of it and RUSSH, have you read RUSSH? It has lovely fashiony collages.

    You're so thoughtful Anabela, dear.

  25. I love Frankie so much I subscribed (Lula too). Luckily I'm in NZ so it's not prohibitively expensive. I already have a copy so if I'm drawn please give it to someone else! Just wanted to chime in - lovely giveaway!

    As a young momma, ready fashion magazines has become a rare indulgence- I would love the luxury of burying myself in fashion! I have never read Frankie, and it looks like exactly what I need!

  31. I could really use a good magazine pick me up right now! I live in a medium sized town and our bookstores carry a very limited selection of international magazines.

  35. woo! throwing my straw hat into the ring.

    I've also always been a huge fan of Frankie- that Mia Timpano! That Benjamin Law! I've got tons of backissues of Frankie and RUSSH mags as my sis lives in Sydney and ferries them home for me every once in a while. If you've got a hankering to borrow one, let me know!
