The result is magazine predator and a far echo from the personal taste that hopefully drove them to acquire the skirt in the first place.. which basically sums up the pros and cons of the blogger phenomenon (ordinary girls into fashion [pro] + ordinary girls into fashion that operate reality-show style [con]).
All of my thoughts on this topic exactly. The blogger phenomenon has really increased the number of people carrying clutches and wearing stilettos in the afternoon. If I saw someone like that ten years ago, I would have envied their eccentric lifestyle, but all that's changed
It flung up momently the sacred river.
