Anyone remmy the 1920's Antique Headress last week from Chapeau tres Mignon? How could you forget it? It was saturated all over the fashion feed. Every fashion blogger that it was given to blogged it from what I can tell.
I was given it too. By the way, have you noticed that I really don't have a personal review policy anymore, nor does MGG2SL? It's because everyday there is a new fashion twat blog etc for SL that does all the work for me/us. Why work harder when you can work smarter? The big differences between me & most, see I said most, other fashion blogs is that:
- This is not a fashion blog per se
- I have an opinion
- It has to meet *my* standards of happifications to end up blogged by me
What does that mean Jelly? Well it means that if a designer gives me something they don't know if I'll blog it or not. Unlike some fash bloggers like AnaLu. Don't get me wrong, Ana is a great person & she is great with Photoshop, but she rarely, and I mean like almost never gives an opinion. Do you like that ensemble? Hate it? Why? What do you like/hate about it? Is it detailed?
I know I sound hypocritical here because every once in a while I do a Jelly's Closet on my personal blog and I don't feel I need to post an opinion. The reason for that is because if I am wearing it, that means I love it. Period. Also I never call it a review. If that doesn't clue you in that I "like &/or love" what I am blogging, seek professional help from Capt Obvious. kkthnx
Don't most designers have their own blogs? What about the What's New in SecondLife blog? Is there really a reason why the fashion feed has to be saturated with the same item on different avatars? 900 copies of the Antique headdress were given out? Okay mayhaps it wasn't 900 but jeepers! Who is buying it when it was given out to so many people? Do I really need to see how it looks on Ana, Sai, Gillian, and a handful of others?
So this post ends up with more questions than answers. Mayhaps it's just me on a ventage cycle but my gawd people if you want to call yourself a fashionista, a fashion blog, or person with good taste, at least have a fucking opinion.
Oh yes, opinions. That really gets me. If you are going to call your post a review, actually say something. Really. If you're just doing a fashion post, kay then... but a review you would think would require you to have an opinion! Don't be afraid to have a little credibility, okay so a designer could pass you up next time if you actually give an honest less than savory review, but imagine that you could actually be known as an honest blogger with some kind of credit. Not just the blogger that blogs EVERYTHING!
Remmy the good ole'days where fashionistas would find us things that weren't ALL new releases? I do! I do!
