..spring is here and summer is fast approaching, but i’m becoming more and more attracted to…purples, dark greens and other gem stone hues..
i was wearing a purple dress underneath the buttoned up jean jacket.
i added the silk scarf because my throat isn’t getting any better :(
and the tights? yea…it was preeeettty cold (and rainy) today.
(plus, they made the dress look more office-appropriate!)
so anyways, lets move on to a different (random) topic, which i’ve had in mind for the past couple of weeks..
i’ve been a chictopia member since jan 09.
i’ve been through a phase where my first posts didn’t attract any comments or chic votes.
to be honest, i joined chictopia because of the positive comments and chic votes that people are giving to other members.
i wanted to know if the way i dress is bad/ok/good/great/CHIC.
if it’s bad, i would try to improve by looking at others for inspirations.
aren’t most of us like that?
so, it kinda bothers me when i see an outfit post that receives a lot of comments but only gets a handful of chic votes.
we all want to be recognized in the chictopia community and chic votes are one of the ways to show that your sense of style is recognized by others.
chic votes are what get you in the style gallery!
what’s the point of getting 70+ positive comments on your cropped top/high waisted skirt/boyfriend blazer/bodycon dress/purse/booties/harem pants are if you only get 10 chic votes out of that?
is it because some people don’t want others to have more chic votes than they do?
is it because they don’t want others to appear on the style gallery page then acquire more fans and have a shot at becoming a style icon?
or is it also because they’ll get 1 chic point for writing down a comment but no point for voting for the outfit?
if they have the time to write down a comment, why is it so hard for them to vote for the outfit at the same time?
i am confused… :(
for me, if i don’t like what i see, i won’t even bother writing a comment.
it’s that plain and simple, fair and square.
people whose outfits and style i like deserve my comments AND votes.
edit: I didn’t mean to sound that harsh.
everyone has a unique style of his/her own and i have no right to judge it.
what i meant was if someone’s style isn’t appealing to me, then i won’t write a comment or vote on his/her outfit.
make sense, right? opposites attract doesn’t work in fashion :)
pheeeewww…there goes my rant :)
i truly apologize if i sounded judgmental or offended anyone.
that wasn’t my intention at all :(
i wasn’t trying to point my finger at anyone.
everything i just wrote is based from my general observations.
people can agree or disagree with me :)
ok enough said.
have a great night/day, everyone!
