I was in high school, or at least I think I was, when I was first introduced to Victoria.  It was a glossy magazine filled with large, gorgeous pictures that made you want to bring out the tea set and crumpets.  It was just so fine.  Elegant!  I would sprawl out on my bed and pour over the pictures!  Anyways, after a number of successful years, one major overhaul, and a few grumpy magazine trends, Victoria faded away from the scene.  I think I counted at least a dozen of girlfriends who were heart broken along with me.  Then last fall I heard the whisper on the wind that Victoria was coming back on the scene!  Woot, woot!  The issues have been meager in content as they're just starting out, again, but the photographs are lovely, the articles beautiful.  These were a spattering of photos taken from one of their online features :)  Scrumptious!

I am a huuuuge fan of Victoria as well and was so sad when it folded. I can't wait to dig around their site (thanks for the reminder).

Good luck with packing...moving is never fun, but fresh starts are always nice. xo ~Suzanne

I was a huge fan when it first came out and was sad to see it go. I also noticed that the newer issues are a little spare, but I hope they will improve. The new editor is also the owner of Southern Lady magazine, and you can see the similarities between the two.
