Links à la Mode : The Love/Hate Relationship With Fashion

by jennine on February 4, 2010

Edited by Debutante Clothing

I’m always complaining about going out to fashion events by myself – I just don’t have many friends that are into fashion. While some people think fashion is frivolous and contributes nothing to the world, others are curating museum exhibits featuring 20th century clothing. This week’s links made me think about the love/hate camps in fashion. Starting with Grit and Glamour’s post on bloggers getting backlash from fashion insiders, Houndstooth + Tortoiseshell’s refreshingly funny admission of Tavi envy, or Fab Lab’s hate of people who hate. But there is some love in sight – British Style Bloggers reminds us to look in the mirror and love ourselves. Enjoy!

But the conference is full up already, isn’t it? So why taunt us by saying “check it out”? Or are there plans to release more places?

Whoops, re-reading my response, I sound snarky, whereas I meant it as a “poor me” gentle jibe. We all do really appreciate the amount of work you do for the fashion blogging community, and know that you care :) And, of course, you HAVE released more places, so tho I probably still won’t get there, it’s great that so many others will be able to.

For me, fashion circles are worlds away from anything I look for in blogs or blog about myself. As much as I covet information on new collections and bits and pieces from fashion’s inner sanctum, I personally find the fashion tangent that is blogging far more interesting: finally, an arena where the individual takes precedence over this season’s no-nos and the like.
Anyway, I know exactly what you mean about not having friends as into fashion as you feel yourself, which is another sphere in which blogging comes into its own.

Hope you are well!
