RIP Lucky Magazine

Lucky, the once-wildly successful "magazine about shopping," officially closed shop yesterday. Though it was only a matter of time (it was no secret the print publication had been struggling for a while) I'm still a bit shocked. 

Did you read Lucky? Did you get giddy with joy when the newest issue arrived in the mail? Did you have as much fun as I did peeling off those "Yes!" and "Maybe?" stickers and placing them onto beautiful, glossy pages featuring a coveted pair of jeans, shoes or accessories?

The Lucky magazine during founder Kim France's 10-year editorship was my favorite era. France made what could have been just another vapid beauty mag into a fun, aspirational and well-written publication.

Rest in peace, Lucky. I will miss you, shopping buddy.
