chelsea


I really love the name "Chelsea": it automatically brings to mind "Chelsea Girl." I hope you love your name if you're a Chelsea.

My print copy of issue #2 of Chelsea magazine arrived in the mail last week, which was so exciting (although if you follow me on Twitter, you may know that I've been talking about it for a while). It's the clever & pretty magazine companion to the excellent Cat Party blog, with beautiful fashion spreads (one called "Heaven's Gate" is especially great -- a few images are below), horoscopes, and hilarious articles. The interview with Susien and Nic from Lover was so charming, and now my hankerin' to see a psychic is stronger than ever. Also, it came with some buttons, including Stevie Nicks and Sweet Valley High ones -- pretty amazing. Best of all, it has fashion drawings of cats by Elizabeth Moch.

RECOMMENDED! You can preview the issue on the website, or order a copy for 15 bones through the website.  Here are a few additional images from the issue.

  8. Chelsea looks so good. I will have to order a copy on payday. It was the Sweet Valley High button that sold me. I've been thinking about that series lately. Did you ever see the television show?

  11. I shall have to check this out! I love the read about Linda Pheracs. If you have not heard her music, she is a must to listen to. Especially if you like folk/folk rock. She has a beautiful voice! Sorry to write a novel, but her album "Parallelograms" is one of my favs!
    Thank you so much for all of your posts!

  14. Chelsea has always been a point of inspiration for me as well. The name reminds me, actually, of "Chelsea Morning" by Joni Mitchell. I don't subscribe, so thanks for sharing the spreads.
