I’m not really into this outfit. Somehow, all black looks always feel so boring to me when I put them on. I can love them on other people, but not on me. I do love my floral headwreath though, And I have absolutely nothing else to say right now! Sorry, I’m sort of braindead I guess.
Hope you like my outfit better than I do! :D
Oh I forgot, I DO have something to say.
sophi and I had a little discussion about stylesites like chictopia the other day (if you want to chime in, check it out yesterday's comment section!). Her problem with stylesites is the fact that it’s mostly skinny white girls with a similar style that “make it big” on stylesites, while curvier girls or black girls are very underrepresented, and she feels like it isn’t fair and takes away from the democratic nature of these stylesites. She also feels that it is hard to make it on chictopia for starting bloggers because it’s always the same girls who make it into the style gallery. I agree on that one, while the new demands to make it into the style gallery serve the quality, it does make it way hard for new girls to develop their style and slowly grow into style gallery features, which sucks. But I don’t agree on the underrepresentation of “fashion minorities”. I mean yeah, it is sad that there aren’t more curvy or black girls in the style gallery, but you can’t blame chictopia for it. I feel like this underrepresentation is a vicious cycle: because black or curvy girls are aware of certain beauty standards, they might be too insecure to really get into fashion and styleblogging, so they don’t register. And because few girls start styleblogging, there aren’t a lot of rolemodels for other black or curvy girls to start styleblogging, which in turn demotivates these girls. Boycotting stylesites only results in beauty standards staying the way they are. I feel like black or curvy girls should just ALL register here and bombard us with their chicness, inspiring others to do the same. In the end, molds are there to be broken and the media are the very best way to break beauty molds. Internet is ideal, because anyone can create content and reach people. So GO black fashionista’s and curvy bombshells!
Let me know how you feel!
