Issue 13 has been popping up around the internet since its release last November (have you read it yet?). Here’s a little collection of some love we’ve gotten lately:
We celebrated the launch of Issue 13 with a Black Cat Ball (best party ever!) and on the morning of, our latest issue found its way (courtesy of yours truly) onto the Toronto Standard, sitting pretty amongst these other feline-inspired objects.
And here, we’ve been reviewed on some of our favourite blogs: Qqueen of Hearts, Fashion is My Muse, Haute on Heartland, Little Expressionless Animals.
These pretty girls carry WORN in their bags: Anabela of Fieldguided (which is perfect, actually, because Anabela’s Thunder tote is the unofficial bag of the Wornettes), and beautiful Bernadette of Decade. We’re obsessed with her dreamy illustrations, which you can see more of here.
Our friends at She Does The City included us in their round-up of awesome publications for teens. Plus, they compare us to Sassy and Jane, which we’re pretty okay with.
Last but not least, our Editor-in-Pants, Serah-Marie, tells you what book she recommends over on the CBC and who she’s got a girl-crush on right over here.
P.S. We love seeing your posts about WORN—we’re kind of narcissistic that way. If you’ve included us anywhere, feel free to email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

We asked for our readers to send in pictures of themselves reading Issue 13 of WORN, and they did not disappoint. Our readers are all total babes!

Our readers even have exceptionally attractive cats.
We love to see your pretty faces! Send us photos of yourself holding Issue 13 of WORN. You can send it via Twitter, post it to our Facebook wall, or just send a good old-fashioned email to dearworn @ wornjournal.com.
When taking a break from filming Star Trek episodes or being huge stars of 1920s silent films, some of your favourite celebrities like to wind down with issue 12 of WORN Fashion Journal.
“Wait a second,” some of you intone, “Hasn’t Louise Brooks been dead for 25 years? WORN’s only been around for six. This doesn’t make any sense. In fact, it looks like you Photoshopped this in a convoluted attempt to drum up publicity for the magazine. Come on, Anna, who do you think we are? It isn’t even good Photoshop.”
Hush, gentle readers. It turns out that a love of WORN can transcend even the strictest laws of time, space, physics and photo editing.
Send your own fan photos to webeditor @ wornjournal.com.

April Fool’s joke, it ain’t. Make sure you mosey on down to your local newsstand this month to pick up Bitch Magazine’s latest, the Primal Issue; not only because it is generally an awesome publication, but a certain independent Canadian fashion magazine (hint: it’s us) gets a shoutout on the Bitch List! Writes Ashley McAllister, “[WORN is] for the fashion diehard who’s fed up with the usual glossies.” A definite honour, considering the overall influence Bitch has had on us (and their Style issue has definitely made its rounds amongst the Wornettes).
