I have been ranting & raving all morning on Twitter First, about this article on Fashionista on bloggers faking that they get free stuff from designers to up their VIP status. OMG, really? WHY on earth would anyone do that? Why lie to begin with? But even more than the idea that bloggers would do that, I am frustrated with Fashionista for even putting it out there, and then not presenting clear proof that it ACTUALLY happens! I think we all THINK that it happens, and people talk about it, but without proof, what’s the point of presenting it as true? Not that I believe that Fashionista is a bastion of journalistic integrity to begin with, but I resent the fact that they couldn’t get any evidence, or statements to back up their claims before publishing the “article” (I use that term loosely).
Then I saw some instagram snaps of the Bryanboy x adrienne landau collaboration and I lost it. I was a big fan of Bryanboy in the beginning (before he because uber-famous and MJ named a bag after him), but now, I’m over it. Anyway, I guess I still see him more as a bag blogger and scratch my head at why he would do a collaboration with a designer who works primarily with fur (besides for financial compensation, duh). And anyway, why does Adrienne Landau need Bryanboy to produce a line of colorful fur accessories? Is it any different design-wise than anything else they do? (I’m sorry, I guess the fur bowtie is a bit out of the norm for them…)
Maybe all of this indicates that mostly, I’m just fed up with seeing the same bloggers, and the same brands working with bloggers, and the same stuff, over and over again…it just makes me tired.
But nevermind! On to other things…some housekeeping notes:
I added a “shop!” page in the navigation bar up top where I’ll feature all my favorite things to buy online. I’ll update it every couple of days with new stuff.
Also, I added an “in my closet” page where I’m posting things I own and little mini-reviews right there so you don’t have to scroll through outfits or reviews to see why I like what I like.
Let me know what you think of them and if you find them helpful at all. Both of those pages are powered by apps that I get via RewardStyle, an affiliate program I use (so I get commission on things you buy through those links). As with all of my content, I only post things I would buy or recommend that you buy, no matter if I get a commission on them or not, these apps just make it much easier for me to organize & publish them!
