i've been told, on several occasions , that "big" streetstyle bloggers are actually controlled by media group.
the pics published (and also the article) on theirs blogs aren't always from them (the bloggers).

i've been explained that those streetsyle bloggers (for most of them) aren't using flash on their camera
, but on the pics in their blogs, people have the little light of the flash in the eyes.

so the media group, are paying photographers to shoot what style they want to see,
they are also paying streetstyle bloggers to go to fashions shows and show they're present (bloggers)
so at the end they (media group) have articles they're looking for and it looks like it's from independant bloggers.

So, in essence, this is just another example of capitalism masquerading as an independent voice? I can believe it, but it just goes to show that barely anything is sacred.

Hmmm, I feel more than a bit skeptical about this ... but I'm also happy to say I hadn't considered blogs in any form sacred, except perhaps as an example of free speech

not convinced by these 2's personalities and the so-called photography.
making news and money, it's simple.

I knew society has a problem with it, but I didn't know that a lot of TFSers also had a problem with the shorter man taller woman couple "issue".

japoelflaco, the only reason that people comment on his height is that he's incredibly vain and he may judge other people for being short in stature, or that he has a "Napolean complex" apparently.

this man is so horribly sexist.

he said that tavi views's or her blogs could never be taken seriously 'if she has never had a boyfriend or any of that Kind of stuff".

^Oh wow

That said, I hate the expression "Napoleon complex" because it's particularly inaccurate and irrelevant, nothing against you, I just loathe this "conventional wisdom", I understand what it means but the origins are wrong. Napoleon was of perfectly average height for his time, so he was never complexed by his height, unlike Scott maybe, which would account for many things..

Oh good Lord I hadn't heard this quote before. So I guess if a woman is gay, he won't think she can be taken seriously at any point in her life? I really need him and his chin to explain to me how 'having a boyfriend' or 'that kind of stuff' gives a woman gravitas. Apparently a woman is invisible to him until she's received some male stamp of approval, like the Good Housekeeping seal? How can he be so sure it is or isn't there?

Jane Austen has been extremely relevant for centuries now without ever meeting his standard (assuming I understand it correctly ...).

Jacka$$ ...
