The above scenario is just one of several trends I’ve noticed in fashion blogs. It really irks me that people are putting so little values to phrases like NEED THESE IN MY LIFE. And those shoes that were proclaimed as favourite of all times would probably never see daylight again. Why am I being such a judgmental prick? Well it’s habit like this that adds up to the mountain of rubbish we’re already dumping in some third world country, not to mention all the other problems associated with excessive consumption. I don’t think bloggers (and consumers in general) are ignorant. What I don’t get is why they continue practising these destructive habits.

Shirt – bespoke; Dress – Rick Owens; Boots – vintage
Picture this: Blogger A visited blog B, saw some pair of Jeffrey Campbell and concluded that she needs the same pair or she’ll ‘just die’, then proceeded to buy the shoes. One week later, Blogger A posted 1001 photos of the shoes, on top of the usual 1001 photos of herself, with captions such as ‘they’re my favourite shoes of all time, etc’. Two weeks later the same thing is repeated but with a different pair.
