Mini April 2011 is another really fun issue to look at, not to mention it comes with a MilkFed flannel tote in a black and white buffalo check print!
The tote measures 24(height) x 19.5(length) x 12(width) cm and is made of flannel cotton fabric with polyester lining.
I have mix feelings about this tote. While it's cute, the flannel material is rather thin and flimsy and I bet it will pill and ball up like crazy with use. The craftsmanship is kind of sloppy, especially around the base of the handles where threads overlap each other. It's white thread too on the black portions of the check, so it totally jumps out at you and not something you can just ignore and pretty tend it doesn't exist.
On the other hand, it is lined with a pretty lavender polyester fabric, has an interior pocket and button closure. I guess I'm just really picky and this is a perfectly usable tote :P
And what I meant with this issue being fun is that it has tons of fashion stuff, particularly most of the clothes featured aren't too trendy and more on the classic feminine side. That means many of these outfits will definitely outlive the seasonal collection changes.
The baggy jeans that are back in this season and denim overall shorts and skirts.
And the next several pages are all on denim! Colored, distressed, and jeans in different washes on the left and denim skirts, rompers and bleached shorts on the right.
