Of course it has a place! The main point of a style blog is to show your own personal style, and if it’s minimalism, then that’s what you should show! That article had it so wrong, I can’t even put it into words how wrong they are. It insults both the reader and the blogger. They’re basically saying the reader has the mind of a magpie and is only attracted to bright, sparkly things, whereas the blogger’s personal style isn’t good enough, so they should just fake it.
My rule of thumb: wear, write, and do whatever you want on your blog. If you’re enjoying it and are excited to be a part of the blogging community, then you have already found success!posted over 1 year ago

hi. i just joined chictopia right NOW after months of happening to “find” it while googling other fashion related stuff. i could not think of a more relevant thread to come across on my first day. i am a hardcore minimalist. i realized my love for fashion after school and college, and part of the reason for that was that i always heard girls commenting on each other’s belts and bags and funky clothes and it made no sense to me whatsoever. i have a great love for beautiful, feminine, wearable clothes period. i without a doubt want to be well dressed but i would hate for that aspect to consume all the rest-BORING.
so this is what i believe- there are without a doubt a million women out there like me and your blog will in all likelihood make a lot more sense to them than anything else they can find. i have nothing against any colour (Well maybe you’d never see me in neon but then again that’s extreme), but there are people like me out there who go “argh!” like they’ve been touched by a lizard when they see too MUCH. or even a little much. there’s your audience, and to be honest i think you’re on your way to helping a lot of confused people!
as for the article you read- piling things on is the least classy approach to style i have ever heard of. even the people who enjoy the other side of fashion will agree with me.posted over 1 year ago
of course there is ! many people like minimalism. For example I like accessories,bur I don’t wear them often . So a blog like yours can be a should of inspiration for my everyday outfitsposted over 1 year ago
if you’re a fashion blogger, your followers are probably like-minded people in regard to aesthetic, so in that sense it doesn’t matter. I follow fashion blogs if I find their wardrobes inspiring; the article probably meant you have to be innovative.
I think there’s a distinction between minimalism, and just wearing the same type of basics every day, which is maybe what the article was referring to?posted over 1 year ago
