VOGOFF Call for Submissions

Miz Bagg is back and ready to commence work on her next thrilling issue of VOGOFF magazine, tentatively called Le Grand Fashion Art (Grand F'ART) Issue. Anyone who pinkie swears to the pledge below is welcome to make a submission.


  • I pledge to push my VOGOFF style beyond all boundaries of decorum. When I have reached my creative limits, I shall then ignite my booster rockets to achieve stratospheric outrageousness.
  • I pledge to call in favours from family, friends, acquaintances, and strangers to capture intriguing photos in such locations as recreation facilities, galleries, factory floors, theatres (stages), restaurant kitchens, busy public sidewalks, alleyways, bowling alleys, carnivals, canoes, etc., while wearing dumbfounding high-fashion clothing, often thrifted.
  • I pledge to turn my environment into a photo shoot playground.
  • I pledge to ignore the quizzical looks of bystanders during public photo sessions. (See Fashion Pass)
  • I pledge to express my inner VOGOFF super-duper model (at all times) in pursuit an elevated state of being and not to second-guess my creative inner self. 

When readers see a VOGOFF photo they should ask themselves:
What the feck is happening there?
Who is that half-naked young man with her?
What the hell is she wearing?!
Models must wear dumbfounding outfits. Serious fashion may be considered ONLY if it is presented in a compromising situation. In all cases, think of Vogue on crack as the standard for your photos. All ages, all sizes are of course welcome.

Be serious. Be Zoolander.

Photos should be taken at your highest resolution.
GOOD LIGHTING is your best friend!!!

Miz Bagg will accept a maximum of 2 photos per submission. Not all photos will be published. Miz Bagg reserves the right to fiddle-faddle with your photos as it strikes her fancy. The release date of Le Grand F'ART Issue depends on the number of submissions received and will be announced on Bag and a Beret.

Send your submission to the Bag and a Beret email contact with VOGOFF Submission in the subject line. Include the name/blog address (if applicable)/clothing details that you would like to appear with your photo/credits. All work must be original to you. You do not need to have a blog to participate.

DEADLINE: April 29 May 19

This convenient Fashion Pass gives you permission to act like an idiot in the name of Miz Bagg and VOGOFF magazine.*

I hope you will join in - it's a great chance to show off your uber-fashion talent. The last VOGOFF issue has had almost 10,000 reads to date, which for some bloggers may not be a big deal but for me is very thrilling. Thank you everyone who had a look, and thanks especially to the incredibly talented women who so generously contributed to it! 

*Okay, I'm joking here. Miz Bagg/VOGOFF/Bag and a Beret will not be liable for public mischief that results from photo shoots for VOGOFF magazine. Why must I even write this?...


  1. Wise of you to submit to those rules.

  2. Count me in. I pledge to make a complete cock of myself, or a peacock, or some kind of large flightless bird, in public, while wearing my normal clothes. Which may or may not cause mass outrage. xoxo

  3. Clementine may be able to contribute, although she has many commitments. She is currently arranging to hire the Taj Mahal for the renewal of vows ceremony with her husband Vin Tage, designing her own second wedding dress made entirely from feather dusters, and a cake fashioned from rose petals and gold leaf (sugar, wheat, egg and fat free, of course).
    If Mizz Bagg has a spare photographer she could send over for the photo shoot, that would be much appreciated.
    Looking forward to the Le Grand F'Art very much! xxxx

  4. melanie i have not heard of this magazine before but i would like to take part. i shall research it now. thank you for telling me. lucyx

  5. while too much of a peahen myself to send a pic, I will be avidly awaiting the next issue!!

  6. I have an idea for photos in my mind, I think I may try to do them in time to submit for Vogoff, it would be so much fun!

  7. So excited! Envisioning my submission as I type...

  8. it's your magazine!! its great i love it . i'm planning something. love lucyx

  9. Ooh how exciting! I look forward to submitting! LOVED the last Vogoff!

  10. Although - gaaah - due to a grotty camera my photos are never in high resolution, so I guess I will have to sit this out and watch from the sidelines :(

  11. I want to submit something!! I am kind of intimidated from the first publication...
    Becky :)

  12. Ah. Le Grand F'ART. I'm sure it will blow.....MY MIND!!!!! Can't wait!

  13. I would love to do this, but my photographer is seldom willing to take lewd pictures of me in public places (I know, excuses).

  14. Sounds like a hoot and a half...I'm picturing myself on the forth plinth in Trafalgar Square sitting behind the bronze boy on his rocking horse wearing a lime green fishnet jumpsuit and a hot pink feather boa...then promptly getting arrested and thrown in the slammer for outrageous behavior ;)
    I'll put my creative thinking cap on and see if I can come up with something before the deadline...xXx

  15. I am so IN! I have been trying to stretch my fashion boundaries - the latest being this post:

    Where I ask the question, "Can older be alternative?"

    Course, I'll be wearing thrift ~

  17. This put a smile on my face. I can't wait to see the next issue...half naked men and all!



  19. I just want to point out that Sarah MIsfit seems to want to participate - I'm not sure where I'm getting that feeling from, but it's just the sense I get....
    I love a challenge, so I am going to throw my hat into this here ring, and put an outfit together. I am rather intimidated by the awesomeness that was the first issue, but I think I can handle it

  20. This sounds like a wonderful opportunity, but my F'ARTs are very difficult to photograph.

  21. Even if I never submit anything, I love to come here and just read the rules!
