ELIZA Magazine

I first heard about this magazine last year when I was talking with the director of MoFash, a modest fashion show held in California. I was interested in this magazine not only because it showcases modest fashion but it also shares the name of my little girl, Eliza. So read all about it below & you can find a link to it in the side bar! Enjoy!

"ELIZA Magazine is created for women who want to be stylish, sexy, and engaged in the world while retaining high standards in dress, entertainment, and lifestyle. In a media culture that frequently objectifies and commercializes women and their bodies, ELIZA strives to provide an alternative to the current mainstream media that emphasizes sex and skin in order to push products or sell magazines.
ELIZA magazine brings you "Fashion without Fiction." We are realistic about everyday women's price points, showcasing pieces that are worth the big price tags and discovering deals at your local department stores that are just as hip. We are realistic about women's bodies: we don't retouch bodies, and we mix real women and professional models. We are realistic about women's interests, featuring fashion and beauty information, current issues, and real life problem solving, all while keeping perspective on what's really important in life.
Each issue provides exciting and informative features in Fashion, Beauty, Health, Entertainment and Lifestyle. Some of our staple articles include: History Repeats Itself—fashion icons like Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O. and how their style translates today. Fit to Be Tried—everyday women modeling classics they love. Saving the World One Issue at a Time—highlighting various social causes and how to get involved. Guys Guide—mini-tutorials on what matters to men and why we should know about it. The Least You Should Know—useful information about everything from changing a tire to your personal finances. Plus health tips, entertainment picks, and breathtaking fashion stories by ELIZA's innovative team.
The ELIZA reader is educated, creative, fashion-conscious, and on the hunt for clothes to feel comfortable in. We continue to pick up the scent of fashion and modesty and deliver it to your door season after season." (Copied straight from their website under "About" link)
