Fashion is up it's own arse

I was just on the forum, 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.


  1. That forum is terrible. So many elitists there. Fashion is supposed to be fun.

    You are so right... Some of the bloggers annoy me as well as they think they are actually an oricle on fashion... they have a right to have an opinion... but not to tell people what is right and wrong... which a lot of them do!

    There are a few people on the what I wore today thread to that I look at the outfits and think... OMG and you think you look good... and these are the same people who often blog and pass comment like they know about fashion... OMG!!!

    Hope you are well!?!?!? Weather today is cold! Horay!!!!

  3. Well... I believe people should mind their own buisiness more often, and if one wants to start a fashion blog as a hobby, they should, regardless of their actual background in fashion. I mean, it's not like anyone is forced to read blogs they don't like, right? There are all kinds of blogs, so elitists can stick to the elite and stop whining for once. :)
