It’s impossible to know what Saint Valentine, the pious fellow for whom V-Day is named, would think of the pink glitter and chocolate-laden holiday we celebrate every February. Yes, Valentine’s Day is just weeks away, Grrrls! But given that the sentimental Victorian-era festival from which the holiday derives was based on the flimsiest of premises, there’s little reason not to think of the day as an excuse to buy something sweet for yourself — every MAG knows this! If you’re not coupled up, the idea of celebrating can feel quite passé, capitalist, or heteronormative, even. But love, as a universal experience, can still (and should!) be shared among those closest to you: friends, family, chosen family—the ones who are there even when romantic partners come and go. MAG Up to MAGnificent, Leslie Knope for coming up with a sassy alternative to the traditional V-Day: Galentine’s Day. Observed on February 13th, it’s an opportunity to appreciate the women you love and admire, celebrate feminism, and support female-run labels.

Welcome to the season of MAGic! The time of year that brings us closer to Family, Friends and Gift Giving. What do you buy a woman who has everything?

I admit, this time of year makes me very giddy. First glance up and there’s the glistening of street decorations that every city strings to welcome the holiday season.

I’ve already received my first! It’s a MAGical time of year, for friends and family, and every MAG knows it!

As the effects of our current political climate, a Donald Trump White House and the rise of so-called alt-right activism in North America ripple through the cultural waters, political dressing is trending. Protesters of all stripes — feminists, white supremacists, antifa, nationalists and social justice advocates — are outfitting themselves to match their political mindsets. This type of political dressing is not the dress code of politicians, nor the mere “rise in skirt hems,” because of rising stock markets.” This is individuals and groups using everyday dress to express their political outlook.

Queue a little Doug E. Fresh and Salt-N-Pepa, for me please. You see, I can vividly remember the 80’s; the Decade of Decadence, when Dallas aired on the living-room television, Rappers really rapped, and Rock Stars really rocked their sassy suede fringed everything! Boy, did we turn the volume waaaaay up on everything. More was fucking, MORE! Cars were Big. Fedoras were Big. Hair was even Bigger! And even though we all know the 80’s left very little for us to desire. It wasn’t all a BIG waste. Fashion was Fabulous!
