I’m admittedly something of a shopaholic. I’ve gotten my problem under control, but it took some hard work. Just like addicts have to remove themselves from situations that cause them to use, I had to remove myself from situations that caused me to buy. One of my biggest stimuli? Lucky Magazine.
From the beginning Lucky billed itself as the magazine about shopping. And indeed it was, and I was hooked on every issue for years. Over time, I did start to feel some dissatisfaction with the pub, mostly because of the lack of diversity on its pages. Even if the model is there to sell the clothes, its great to see people of all sorts as the backdrop, and Lucky didn’t cut it.
