March, the promise of warmer days ahead…ahead, but not quite here yet.
If I were a month, when it comes to fashion I would probably be March. Spring like on paper, but unpredictable and non-conformist in reality. For those of you familiar with my fashion views, you will know I don’t play by the generally accepted Instagram etiquette of “be nice or be quiet”. If I feel strongly enough about say, bloggers who don’t disclose their posts as sponsored when that’s clearly the case, I will call it up. Then at the same time, when I admire someone’s style or professionalism, I praise profusely.
I position myself on the fashion forecasting camp rather than the influencer one. By its very definition, an “influencer” is there (paid or not) to influence you to wear or live the lifestyle they do, in other words, calling you to jump on the bandwagon, follow the heard. I am the type of fashion lover who the minute everyone is wearing the backless Gucci slip ons, I feel quietly smug that I never owned one. So, needless to say, influencers don’t really wash on me.
