Time flies when you’re having fun — and even when you’re not having fun! It’s my sixth blogversary today. To celebrate, I will be lazy: Instead of writing a big post here, allow me to direct you to my latest piece on the Huffington Post, featuring a fashion-blogger slideshow.
For a while, I was bummed out that I hadn’t written a fashion-trend piece for the Huffington Post since my wedge sneaker story last summer. I realized it was because I’m still seeing a lot of the same things I’ve been writing about since 2011. Wedge sneakers are even more popular now than last year. “Mullet” hemlines are mass market and peplum persists. I felt like there was nothing new to write about … and then I realized that WAS the story. I’ve always said that fashion isn’t just revolution. It’s evolution. This time, I got some expert opinions and wrote about ….
Feel free to share the story on social media, and don’t forget to vote on the slideshow. Honestly, I wish there wasn’t voting on the slideshow, but that’s how it works, so go ahead and do your thing. (I “liked” everyone, of course!) Also, make a note to yourself to scold me if I ever use that Oscar Wilde quote on fashion again. After I’d almost finished the new story, I realized I referred to the same quip in 2011. I did it differently this time, but I’ve probably exhausted my Wildean “fashion is … ugliness” quota for a long time.
On the bright side, I found a mini-trend to write about: flat thong sandals. I’m also interested in knee-high gladiator sandals. Fashion bloggers: send your outfit photos to me at wbjewelry at hotmail dot com, and be quick about it. Like I said, time flies and before we know it, it will be December. I have to finish the summer stories right away!
