i get alot of these around campus and school, the criticism hurts but it's great to read your article adressing this. it's great to come to chictopia, to people who feel the same. great inspirational post Emma x

I definitely love post with substance. I try my hardest to inspire those in what I write but I feel like that has yet to happen. This is so true, I dont know how many times someone has complimented an outfit im wearing like this. I used to take it to heart but now im getting over it. thank you for your amazing words.

Thank you for writing this, I really needed to read something like this now ! I have this backhanding visitor on my blog, and I just feel awful when reading his comments.

as for the backhanded compliments the best way to react i think is a smile to these people a smile of happiness and fullfillness because that's something that an evil person can't handle!

I remember writing about how great this site is, i still feel that. i dedicate hours and hours everyday to this site, i used to have coffee and cigarette right after i wake up, now i have chictopia for breakfast. I abandoned my Myspace and facebook etc for Chictopia, i still have faith in this site even if there are bad neighbors. And about ur top, i have it in 3 colors!!! =)

I just received one recently: "Is this your fave top? Oh well..." Hahahaha! So funny! As if you can't repeat your own clothes. I'm not a queen. And you said it really well: they're just JEALOUS.

Thanks for addressing this! I've received my share of these backhanded compliments, but without knowing it, I feel like I've given out a few too on accident. Of course I never mean to hurt anyone's feelings, but sometimes I guess what I'm trying to say comes out rudely without meaning to. But thanks again for addressing this because it really makes me more aware of what I'm typing!

Liz, you totally rocked that topic. We've discussed this before and I couldn't agree with you more. Well said! xx.

ooohhh.. i get them too (not in chictopia though), but in real life.. and i try to just dont mind them!!! you're quite right in saying they're a bit bitter in giving those out. great post! i like how you're able to handle not just mere fashion photos here in chictopia, but also quality posting.. :D

Chic Stuff(?):In the Buff

At first glance, my outfit to the left seems pretty innocuous, right? Right! I’m all about good, clean fun, but a little bit of tongue-in-chic raunch can do no harm. So if you look closer (se...
