With Magazine

I picked up the new April issue of With yesterday at Kinokuniya, mainly for the Jill by Jill Stuart 2009 diary. The magazine is mainly focused on casual, feminine fashion that's mostly a snoozefest for me.

The diary runs from April 2009 to March 2010. It has a glossy cover with fairly plain white pages inside. Definitely not a must-have but it does make a handy notebook for, say, tracking monthly purchases.

The Jill by Jill Stuart clothing is not impressive at all, especially considering the prices, and looks much plainer compared to the main Jill Stuart line. For example, the pink dress is 16,800 yen (S$262; US$171) while the orange blouse is 10,500yen.

Some cute bangles and rings but again quite pricey at 5250yen for the rings and 6300yen-9975yen for the bangles.

The mag retails for S$16.40 but I got a 10% discount with my Kino card as usual.

There is a Taiwan version of With magazine. It cost around SGD8. Of course without the free gift that the Jap version is offering.

Hi Eliza,

You can usually find out the Japan publication dates for the different magazines on their websites and they usually arrive the next Wednesday/Friday at Kinokuniya in Singapore as Kino gets its air shipment of mags from Japan every Wednesday and Friday.
