Fabulosity, with an edge.

The Fagazine

Fall Transitions

I am sad (but excited!!!) to announce that in the next 7-10 days, The Fagazine will be coming to an end. Well, not really. It’s just changing it’s name, getting a face lift, and moving to Tijuana
But really, I feel that Ryan and I have outgrown this little ball of sassifrass pop culture blog, and it’s time for us to move on to something a little more, how should I say it, fierce.
With that, I bring you Ostentology:

Ostentology came to be when I was having a conversation with friends about the way a certain celebrity dresses. They described the look as ostentatious, but I begged to differ. I have always been a proponent of the more is more philosophy when it comes to style. “Toning it down” isn’t a part of my vocabulary. Spinning off of the word ostentatious, I came up with the name for the new blog, Ostentology. Ostentology is defined as follows: The science of more is more fashion. “More is more fashion” describes my personal belief that no look is over the top if you feel comfortable in it, and know how to werk it! The website will be up and running in the next 7-10 days. -Zach Shumate

Ryan and I are supremely excited to be working on this new project. We sincerely hope that all of you, the readers, remain with us through this transition. Don’t worry about losing your daily dose of snark though, the content on the site, and the way I write will not be changing. It’s like I said; The Fagazine is just changing it’s name, and getting a face lift.

Thank you for all of your love and support, and I hope you come along with us for this exciting change!



FNO: Mark Your Calendars!

If you follow me on Tumblr, Facebook, or Twitter, you know that I’ve been plastering this homemade poster everywhere so you know to come see me as a Featured Blogger at Cincinnati’s Fashion’s Night Out.
But on the off chance that you live under a rock of ugly clothing you’ve missed it, here it is again, in more detail, and more hoittie toittie vernacular

Fashion’s Night Out
Saks Fifth Avenue
Sept. 8, 6-8pm

Join Stylelist, Saks Fifth Avenue, Cincy Chic and The Fagazine at the 2011 Fashion’s Night Out. This fun and fabulicious event event will feature pop-up shops, a live band, DJ, complimentary drinks and hors d’oeuvres, and a blogger lounge. Now, I know you’re all tired of seeing my ugly mug, and the unrealistically beautiful mugs of models and celebrities I post here all the time. Here’s what you can do to change it: Come see yours truly in the Blogger Lounge in Saks Fifth Avenue on the night of FNO dressed in your most sartorially liberated outfit. The pictures are always more interesting if you are inebriated, and what do you know, there are complimentary drinks! So come down to Saks, imbibe, shop, and pose for me! What more can you ask for on a Thursday night? Nothing, that’s what. 

See you there!


T-Shirt Time!

This week, it has been brought to my attention by several readers, that The Fagazine needs to invest in manufacturing some T-Shirts.

Would you wear my face around town? It would definitely be a conversation piece.
Lips or no lips? (The logo with the lips won’t say “Zach Shumate” it will just say “The Fagazine”)
