I was just on the forum fashionspot.com, and I looked up a thread about fashion blogging. My God, some of the opinions expressed are so fastidious and narrow-minded that it makes me want to hit people. So I blog about fashion? Who cares? So I don't have any well researched, developed knowledge of fashion design, or even of the industry particularly, but again, who cares?
I am an 18 year old female who is studying her arse off to get a decent degree in English Literature at university, and also trying to balance her fairly demanding part-time job. I'm sorry if I don't have enough time to dedicate to meticulously studying past fashion lines, but that doesn't mean I'm not capable of having my own opinions on the style of today.
I read Vogue religiously, and have begun building my own fortress out of fashion literature, so if I haven't learned at least a little from those texts, then I don't know if I ever will. But to be honest, my complete knowledge of actual fashion and the current trends does not really matter, because at the end of the day, I am my own person and have my own style and opinions on what does and does not look good.
Okay, rant over. For now.
