Since I live in New York, I have a lot of friends who work for fashion designers, magazines, and pr firms. I am often privy to how things really work behind the scenes. If you want insight into it too, I suggest reading Who Watches the Watchmen? an Op-Ed piece on the Business of Fashion site. What's always amazed me is that bloggers are required to state when they've been paid for a post or given free product but magazines who always place products by advertisers in editorials are not. Something to ponder today. The piece also makes me really miss Full Frontal Fashion, Fashion File, and Style with Elsa Klensch.
