#ThrowbackThursday: A Reader’s First Issue of InStyle
Longtime reader Kristin Mika, founder of Hampton Paper Designs, is celebrating our 20th birthday with us! In recognition of our big 2-0, she dug up her first InStyle issue from 19 years ago, reminiscing the events of that historic day on her blog Pen & Pencil:
"I was reading the new InStyle magazine (the June issue) by the pool this weekend and noticed they are getting ready to celebrate their 20th Anniversary.
"I have my first issue of InStyle from October 1995. I picked it up at an airport bookstore (I can’t remember where I might have been traveling in Sept/Oct 1995); I vividly remember seeing the magazine. While I didn’t recognize the name of the magazine, I noticed my girl Jackie O on the cover and snatched up a copy. I have been reading it ever since!”
We’ll toast to that!

"The trip back to my native country, Romania, wouldn’t have been the same without the September issue of InStyle! I loved showing off the gorgeous Drew Barrymore-covered issue while I was on one of the balconies in the Palace of Parliament in Bucharest.”

Inspired by InStyle: Become a Wrap Star 
“Just two weeks ago I traveled with my boyfriend for a weekend in the country of San Marino, and I bought the US InStyle for the trip, and the piece on how to wear scarves really inspired me! I have a few retro scarfs from my mom, but I’ve never been sure how to use them. I used a colorful one as a bow, which my boyfriend liked, and I combined it with a simple white top and black shorts. Thanks a million for the good ideas!”

Inspired by InStyle: Jordan Got White Right!

Inspired by InStyle: Fourth of July Fabulous! 
“I work at a day care for children, so my job is not necessarily the cleanest — if you’ve ever been around two and three year olds, you know! But I have finally decided to stop “saving” my outfits and clothes for the weekend, and wear them to work. Here is one of my new work outfits — I wore this to our Fourth of July party!”
