As again, these are just my thoughts. You may agree, you may not.
1. I'm Following You
I hate when bloggers leave a comment about how much they like your blog and that they are following you so then you should do the same for them. Upon some investigation, you find out they are not following you and that they lied because they are just greedy for followers. Sorry, I'm not following you.
Have you ever came across those fashion blogs... where the blogger just write a bunch of confusing and vague jibberish about themselves or their life (talking like Confucius) right after some outfit photos? Yeah, I don't get that. Why can't you just be more transparent? If you don't necessarily want to broadcast what you are feeling in detail, you might as well not type all that emotional blurb in the first place. From an outsider's point of view, I just conclude that this blogger is probably an emotionally frustrated hipster.
3. Crappy Photos
Okay okay, I know that my photos aren't the best either. I don't have a DSLR camera nor have a scenic background in all of my outfit photos. But I absolutely hate blurry outfit photos that are taken from a reflection of a poorly lit, small, cramped and dirty bedroom mirror. It makes me lose interest.
When you are generating a decent amount of viewers and have a stable fan base, that's when you acquire some undesirable viewers. The majority of the time, these people (who you probably never met) have too much time on their hands. They see that you are doing something you enjoy and want to bring you down for their entertainment. What's the point of making a mean comment? Yes, your comment hurt me so much that I'm going to go in the corner of my room and cry *sarcasm. When in actuality, I'm thinking about all the amazing things I am blessed to have in my life, the people who love me to death and all my priceless experiences I have had.
Okay and now focusing on fashion
5. Fancy Earrings and Running Shoes
Why would any self respecting female wear chandelier earrings and runners? You are not doing "dressy casual" correctly. These two items do not belong together. You can't dress up runners period.
6. Too Much Jewelry
When you have more than 4 of these: watch, rings, bracelets, stacked up on one arm. You look like a gypsy.
7. Unnecessary Belting
A belt to accentuate a plain shift dress or a dress that needs some waist definition is fine. I draw the line at belting cardigans and blazers. I find it odd to belt clothing items that already have buttons. I see no reason to belt a blazer (that is slim fitting, which all blazers should be). It has buttons already to accentuate the waistline. You don't need anymore help. It's sort of how males don't need to wear a belt if they have suspenders on or vice versa. I dislike the belting of cardigans and vests (that are slim fitting). I won't totally give you the evil eye if you belt your buttonless cardigan or flowly vest.
8. Colour blocking Gone Wrong
Max 2 bright colours in one outfit. Go over board and you either look like a fob or a clown.
9. Diffusion lines
No you don't have a Marc Jacobs bag, you have a Marc By Marc Jacobs bag. The difference is at least $1000.
10. I'm "Saving Up" For It
I don't think one should make it a chore to "save up" for a fashion accessory. I feel like if you are financially stable and know that a certain purchase won't make a big dent in your bank account, by all means.. buy that Chanel flap right then and there. However, if you are a student, working part time, having student loans to pay off, have car insurance payments, rent payments, etc... you probably shouldn't be thinking about buying anything extravagant for fashion. It's not the right time. There are more important priorities.
Do any of you have any pet peeves in regards to blogging and fashion as well?
