When we caught up with Maxine Bedat and Soraya Darabi last September, the duo explained all about their e-commerce site, ZADY, which aims to promote brands that are not only desirable to the consumer, but are ones that tell stories about the people and places behind them. Through ZADY, Maxine says she hopes "to help share creators' stories and facilitate a connection to our things and each other." One of Soraya's goals at ZADY is to "help her friends look stylish while feeling good about the clothes they are wearing." The site offers up everything from women's and menswear to home goods, accessories, and a slue of gifts for every type of shopper.

Nevertheless, it is important to never fully let go of reading a physical, page turning glossy in an age where everything is touch screen and battery operated. Also, how chic and culturally informative does it look to have these non-commercial magazines on your coffee table?
