MaraMasonEmm 's Thoughts:

Lately I’ve been hearing a lot of bad gloss about two specific fall trends: the over the knee sock and the clog. I personally love both. I’ll be honest though, when I saw the 90’s coming back this summer I cringed. I have loved fashion practically all my life and the same can be said for how long I’ve hated 90s fashion. I know that doesn’t really make sense when you think about it, cause well, I grew up in the 90’s so what did I wear if I hated it so much, right? Well during the dreaded 90s, I wore gross Blossom hats with big flowers in the front of them; crushed velvet tops with bell sleeves and lace body suits; I wore over-sized flannel shirts from my brother’s closet and forest green backpack purses with gold hardware. What’s good is that I was between the ages of 5 and 14 at the time so I have being a ‘little kid’ as my excuse, but what’s bad is that there is hard evidence of those trends I so boldly donned (i.e. grandma’s photo albums.) But who knows, now that I’m enjoying them now; maybe I’ve just been blaming my gangling-pubescent self on the fashion of this gross-awkward time in my life. Which reminds me, have any of you noticed that people who condemn fashion and fashion bloggers are usually miserable hateful people??? Just an observation; and that’s all I’ll say about them cause I’m not a miserable hateful person.

::About my outfit::

1. I wore this 90s grunge inspired look to work today. 2. I really should have picked a more convenient pair of clogs (like a pair with a back strap) cause I about fell out of them a few times. 3. My top is from Forever 21 that I bought on a whim one evening for only $12. 4. I was super excited for the cold front coming in cause I could finally wear my leopard coat by Betsey Johnson. 5. I keep thinking I should have worn denim shorts instead of these dark cotton ones….hmmm….

Cute top. :) By the way, I replied to your response in the forum, too. :)

I'm starting to think it's probably something the editors made up to justify taking photos they themselves don't like even though the people have clearly spoken. why even have a vote if the editors are going to disregard them?
trinnah on November 15
They normally pick what they like. Yeah. Some people used to do that. I would get random emails asking me to add then as a fave, and I had never even seen them before. :( Yeah, the fake accounts need to go because some of them are so blatantly obvious! Lol. There's about 4 of us here from The Valley that I know of -- I hope it grows! :)

:) I don't vote chic all the time, too. I actually feel bad when I don't, but there are just some looks that I don't like either, to be honest. The friendship pact that they're talking about, I think is more of an unwritten bond. The more you see of people's looks and like them, the more you keep going back to the same ones. Lol. I guess that's how the editors do the style gallery, too.

Thanks for noticing. I know exactly what you're saying, this is a social network and we end up making close friends and at the end of the day we are all just trying to put ourselves out there. I guess I didn't like the idea of the 'friendship pact.' but now that I think about it, it's not like we're sending each other secret messages asking others for votes and comments right? I say, chictopia weeding out the 'fake accounts' is the only say they should have. Anyway, it's good to see someone else on here from the Valley!
