Why I Hate Fashion Blogs
Now I am going to begin this highly opinionated piece by saying that there are a select few fashion blogs that I think are FABULOUS. But they are rarer than cheap fuel.
Now I love fashion and clothes and pretty fashion pictures just as much or even more than your average non-butch gal. I can name most designers just by looking at an article of clothing and totally understand the power of the LBD paired with killer accessories. But what I DON’T get is the ridiculous wave of the ‘new’ sources of fashion. The damn blogs. Girls and guys (another annoyance) deem it perfectly cool and acceptable to take vain and self-indulgent photos of themselves wearing second-hand combat boots (EW EW EWWWWWWWW), with a silk nightgown and their dads old denim jacket and then post it online.
ACTUAL fashion peeps are making it worse by calling them ‘the-next-big-things’ in fashion and designers are jumping on the bandwagon and using them as their muses. (They really can’t help it though, designers are as fickle as some of the fabrics they use and as strong-willed as a junkie being offered free heroin. They just do whatever other designers and magazines tell them to do.)
What drives me crazier is that most of the fashion bloggers are seriously ‘alternative‘ (and you all know how much I HATE alternatives….“Dream on alternatives. You are nothing but smelly mainstream twats.” and for some reason truly do believe that they look great and that fashion is the most important thing in the world.
And yes I do realise that I get equally excited about a new shade of fuchsia lipstick as a fashion blogger does about ‘vintage shorts that they can sew studs on’. BUT I am totally aware about how silly I sound sometimes and at least ramble on with a sense of humour (well I think I do :)). ALSO I don’t smear said fuchsia lipstick over my cheeks joker style and call it a ‘beauty trend’ (I seriously wouldn’t put it past a fashion blogger to do this “oh but its a reflection of beauty as art” – loser).
Crack a smile fashion bloggers and perhaps put on a clean un-ripped shirt.
