Welcome to The Rag. This column is inspired by everything I love about women’s magazines (and a few things I hate).
There’s the diversity of topics and article formats. Eye candy photos and, oh, the sweet granularity of fashion coverage. “Mental chocolate” peppered with politics. Glimpses into people’s inner lives and celebrities’ over-designed homes. Pop culture hot takes. Recipes. Occasional travel tales. Interesting interviews. Period talk.
For the next few months at least, I’ll be posting weekly musings that relate to at least some of these categories and reflect my perspective as a Black and Puerto Rican American woman, who happens to live in Istanbul. Happy reading!
