      blogs. Why read them? I hate black metal and I don’t like lizards, celqosuentny I don’t visit sites about black metal or lizard care. I also wonder when the contributors to this site were granted the power to determine what is and what is not fashionable. As I understand it, fashion is a complex, ever-changing dynamic that means many different things to many different people. Simply because something isn’t over the top, eccentric or vulgar doesn’t mean it isn’t fashionable or lacking depth. Furthermore, just because a fashion blogger doesn’t feel the need to compare her outfit to a famous painting or avant garde film that no one really understands doesn’t make her vapid or uncultured. It just makes her less pretentious. Also, I wonder what exactly is it that you would consider makes a thought provoking fashion image, since you’ve ruled out so many forms of expression as irrelevant. Another thing throughout this post it’s implied that outfit bloggers are narcissistic, self-serving dolts that only post about themselves for the thrill of seeing their own face staring back from the screen in front of them. However, judging from the thriving community revolving around outfit blogs, they serve a much larger purpose than ego-stroking. Many women (and men) like to see real people, wearing real clothes. Not editorials, not models, not untouchable fashion icons just other people keeping it real, and I consider the photos those fashion bloggers post of themselves to be of much more use to me than to the blogger’s ego. Claiming that fashion bloggers as a whole are narcissistic just because they post photos of themselves is simply false. One more thing I’ve noticed that so many of the things criticized in this post can be found right here on this site, in the section for contributor-created content. even claims inspiration from childhood fairytales, which we were advised in this post to read something other than. So, I wonder what is it that makes the content on this site so different from the content you are criticizing? Is it because it’s not you in front of the camera, so it’s artistic instead of narcissistic? Is it because you have assigned some cultural meaning behind the photos, so we should value them as well? You are no longer amateurs, so you are allowed to criticize those who are still learning and growing? Are you just better at it than most? Lucky for me, I love ethereal photos of girls in fields and obscure landscapes with hazy filters, so I don’t have a problem with your content. In fact, I love it. I think you have some extremely talented contributors with serious vision and an ability to translate meaningful ideas into art. However, before you decide to condemn a subculture, make sure you aren’t part of it.
