Vogue VIP Subscription: A Review

10/02/2017

“I want ‘Vogue’ to be pacy, sharp, and sexy – I’m not interested in the super-rich or infinitely leisured. I want our readers to be energetic executive women, with money of their own and a wide range of interests…”  Anna Wintour

Vogue VIP Subscription: A Review

Vogue VIP Subscription: A Review

An Introduction to the first members-only program with special access to the world of Vogue: Sometime last year, I received an email from REVOLVE inviting me to check out the Vogue VIP Subscription and join a legion of fashionistas as a subscriber. I thought about it for a while and set the email aside. Another reminder email came a few days later and so, I decided to take a closer look. Now, you might wonder why I would be interested in such a thing given that I’m not an all out fashion blogger, right? Yes, I considered the idea too, and decided it was just the right thing for me to do; it’s a way to reconnect with a world I know quite well… I’ve always been a fashionista and back in my London days, I followed the trends and all the classic/traditional and up and coming designers religiously. When I moved to NY, I kept up my love for fashion and, like every starry eyed fashionista, I went to shows and dropped my earnings on gorgeous designer duds and accessories. I had many friends in the fashion world and did some modeling gigs on the side until my dad and other demands put a stop to it all… But I digress.

With the followup email, I decided to jump right in and sign up for the Vogue VIP Membership and haven’t looked back. Give it a try if you want to reconnect or stay connected to the movers and shakers of the fashion world, and enjoy some very special perks too. When my first gift arrived, I was impressed by how beautifully packaged the items were; the welcome note from Anna Wintour was like a cool breeze on a hot summer night. I adore the clutch by Clare V which is a deep black plush suede purse that folds over and can be carried with a few extra items in it. The magazines are choc-a-bloc with lots of newsy stories and fashion updates in lieu of NY Fashion week that is going on as I write. I am enjoying all of it and the gifts keep showing up! Besides my welcome box, I have received a personalized notepad, a beautiful calendar and promises of more goodies down the road. What do you get for the $200 per year membership? Included with your subscription comes the following:

A limited-edition Clare V. x Vogue clutch
Monthly Facebook Live Q&As with Vogue editors
A one-year subscription to Vogue, plus a six-month gift subscription to share
Special issues, including It Girl Style
Exclusive gifts, offers and experiences
All presented with a welcome message from Anna Wintour, Condé Nast Artistic Director and Editor in Chief of Vogue

“…There is a new kind of woman out there. She’s interested in business and money.”  Anna Wintour

Vogue VIP Subscription: A Review

Vogue VIP Subscription: A Review

More On Vogue VIP: One thing that I don’t talk about much on this blog is my life long love of fashion; from haute couture to new designers, and to the kings/queens of the accessory world, I’ve always stayed informed of the goings and comings in the fashion world. I worked in retail at Saks Fifth Avenue for a number of years and got to see fashion shows and designers come and go. I’ve also amassed my share of clothing and accessories from many of the designers; even some vintage pieces too. One of my best friends is a designer and, of course, we often talk about fashion and, once in a while, we meet up for those special one-off sample sales in NYC. This subscription is a reentry of sorts to an arena I’ve always loved. As a member, you’d get to enjoy limited-edition designer collaborations, exclusive content from the Vogue editors and more, all for just $200 per year.

Frankly, the goodies I’ve received so far have more than paid for the subscription. Plus, it’s a terrific way to learn and enjoy all that the creative and fantastic world of fashion can offer. Valentine’s Day is around the corner and this would make for a special gift to someone you love. Why not give it as a gift of love?  Take a look and if this appeals to you, don’t hesitate to jump right in like I did. If it doesn’t call your name, share it with a fashion forward friend or two. Me? I’m loving it. Grade: A+ What are your thoughts?
