The Boutique Issue – April 2015, Num. 56


Letter to the Editor:

My job as an editor opens the opportunity for me to visit interesting cities and I always take the opportunity to check out the local independent retail scene. I enjoy taking in a meal at a local mom-and-pop restaurant and observing how regulars are greeted by the staff by name and a smile. I also like walking to local boutiques near my hotel to get a feel for the fashion sense in that city.

I almost always not only find a great buy but also make great connections with the boutique owner and their staff. I am greeted and assisted without any of them knowing that I own a magazine. I am usually provided such great personalized service, it is usually at that time that I disclose who I am and would love to learn more about the boutique so that I can introduce its wares to our readers.

The smile that graces their face feels great to see and is familiar to me. As an independent publisher, I know how appreciative I feel when someone enjoys Linger Magazine enough to spend their money to support it. That is my goal with each issue. As this is our very first Boutique Issue, we aim to highlight more physical and online boutiques across the globe that cater to each of you. We encourage you to inform us of some of your favorite boutiques. Together, let’s ‪#‎supportindependentretailers‬ and spend our money to strengthen the local economy of entrepreneurs.

Bésame Cosmetics, a vintage-inspired luxury beauty brand, introduces its newest members to their line of products — Vanilla and French Vanilla Brightening Face powders – debuting in all Sephora stores and

“We are very excited to launch Bésame at Sephora. It is a beautiful niche brand we feel will do well in our environment and deliver some exciting product to our clients,” stated Catherine Cason, Assistant Buyer – Specialty & Trend Brands, Sephora.

Brightening powders have existed and used by women for many years, but what they were missing was both the subtle scent of vanilla, and natural ingredient formulation. The Bésame Cosmetics vanilla and French vanilla are cruelty-free beauty products hand-made in Los Angeles that help women achieve a polished look while still delicately incorporating the intricate scent of vanilla. Both brightening powders instantly brighten dark circles around the eyes and can be worn over foundation to set or without any other product at all.

“This amazing partnership is allowing our customers the ability to walk into their nearest Sephora location and pick up our new powders, and to reach a whole new group of women who will now discover our treasures,” added Gabriela Hernandez, Founder and Creative Director of Bésame Cosmetics. “I am truly excited to share the beauty of Bésame Cosmetics with all of them.”

Bésame Cosmetics Vanilla and French Vanilla Face Powders are available in .21 oz in Vanilla, which is perfect for light to medium skin, while French Vanilla is perfect for medium to dark skin.

The Consciousness of Beauty
As the New Year rolled in, I began to think about how it all started for me in 2010. Restless and creatively ‘stuck’, I was well aware of my creative attributes. A the helm of a now-defunct digital magazine, my publisher could not see the “forest for the trees”. With two issues under my belt, I had succeeded in increasing readership, solidified social media connections and began strong talks with potential advertisers. But each production meeting came with increasingly unproductive questions. From the length of my ‘Letter from the Editor’ being too long, cutting pages in the issue at the last minute because the design team wanted to go to lunch, and ultimately, the third issue never being published, I decided that I had had enough. For years, I had convinced myself that I needed to wait to launch my own publication because (insert several foolish reasons here). But when two confirmed advertisers due to run in that third, non-published issue told me that I needed to go my own way and promised to follow, I knew it was time to launch the very publication you are reading today.


Passion has always been a driving force for me -  professionally and personally. I recognized the beauty of my life and surrounding (great friends, supportive mentors and smart industry connections) at a time that I was my most fearful but most determined. May 1, 2015 will mark the 5th Anniversary of Linger Magazine and I could not be more proud. But I have only YOU to thank. My passion for fashion journalism gave me the guts to do it but your support continues to push me to bring the consciousness of beauty to the pages of Linger Magazine each month. And I can’t thank you enough.

Do you dream of showing your work at New York Fashion Week? Would you like to win $100,000+ to launch or expand your clothing line?

Project Runway wants YOU! Now in its 14th season,  Project Runway is looking for the best new talent in fashion design! Designers can now apply directly online – saving time and expense of printing portfolios and mailing applications.

Apply online at: The application deadline is MONDAY, MARCH 16!




Viktor & Rolf’’s Spring/Summer 2015 Ready-to-Wear collection during Fashion Week Haute Couture Paris is a surreal mix of sportive and feminine influences. A contemporary elevation of modern-day sportswear infused with an array of feminine and unexpected elements, which focus in on bringing sporty back. Presented in the Résidence des Pays-Bas, the Dutch designer’s collection hones in on compact tailoring, athletic detailing and an abstract elastication that adds an unexpected twist to the garments.

Cycling shorts and pants; tank tops, mini skirts and dresses create a super tight fit, which builds the base of this season’s defile and are complemented by statement pieces such as jackets, jumpsuits and voluminous shirts and dresses which boast a fullness and add to the creation of the SS15 silhouette.

Delicate and strong, the collection is accented through a lively color palate highlighted by tones of lobster pink, yellow, pale lime, pale lavender, and sky blue. Embroidered and printed bright flower motifs contrast the soft color palate, the sporty elements and enhance the visual experience. The prints are bold and playful, mimicking the 3D flowers used in the embroidery. Contrasting the flowers, a crinkle print depicts a more abstract interpretation and ties back to the overall sporty influence of the collection.

This season’s accessories represent a luxurious and sportive feeling, which is interpreted in the construction, material and color of the designs. An integrated sock adds to the playfulness of the statement shoes and creates an outspoken style, which is perfectly in tune with the essence of the collection. Spring/Summer 2015 introduces the exclusive Viktor & Rolf Baby Bombette handbag, which enriches the house’s signature Bombette handbag range.
