Fashion for the selectively shallow.
Hello? I'm not sure if there are any patrons of this community still around, but if there are, I was looking for a place just like this. Somewhere on LJ with some sensible peer-written articles about what's happening fashion-wise near them and in their hometown/city/country.
To tell you alittle about myself and the world around me right now, I'm a Chanel and Dolce and Gabbana girl, (Well, who isn't) with a strong love of up-and-coming new designers and private boutiques and vintage as well. I'm also an avid window shopper who isn't afraid to go into those ridiculously over-priced speciality brand stores and try on those Gucci shoes, just for the experience.
I've been doing a bit of coast-to-coast travelling lately, from Boston to San Francisco, and of course, to me, travelling means shoping like no other. I have to say that I had the privlidge of looking at the pre-season preview of handbags at Boston's Prudential Center.( Handbags Coast-to-Coast 2007Collapse )
There's my first little, half-editted rant, and hello to this community. I hope its still alive, and there's at least one or two people that have interest in it!
Hello again! This is Rachel, your old mod. I see that not much has happened since I left this community so very long ago, but hopefully I can get it on its feet.
Just wanted to alert you of my change of screename.
Okay, darlings, I have to ask information of you.
(I think that there are only two other members in here, but screw that, this will get posts as soon as I start to advertise).What fashion magazines do you read?
Personally, the only one that I subscribe to is Nylon. Great spreads, lots of girls in expensive underwear, and interesting culture articles to boot. Now, Harper's Bazaar is nice, very classy, gorgeous spreads. But what is with them lately? Literally three artciles in their latest issue is about 'protecting' fashion. Saying that fakes support terrorism, practically begging all of their readers to invest in haute couture and talking about this ridiculous theory that blwoing thousands of dollars on one item (remember, this magazine is sold in grocery stores, not department stores, if you catch my drift) will pay for itself if you wear it more than one day. I had to wonder what brands are endorsing HB to write these articles- then I saw two handbag ads bordering their expose on fakes.
Understand what I'm saing? I'm not rich enough for Harper's Bazaar lately.
Vogue is also nice, but when it comes to how interesting the fashion articles are, I will always go back to Nylon and Bazaar.
I sort of just came a cross this place and thought I would pay a visit. My fashion taste is a dreadful calamity mixture of everything under the sun and having no real bias against one style or another, I don't mind critiqueing a lot of the clothing and accessories I see.
Tah for now but expect me to stick around.
hello, fellow community whores. ^_^
i'm not real big on fashion.
but what i don't get is why fat people wear tight clothes. like the tight thin shirts from A$F and those places.
i also don't understand the point of buying jeans so tight that one must cut them to put them on...
there are other things i don't like. like fur and leather...
but oh well...
i love medieval dresses. they are gorgeous. i want one. midnight plum. or deep red. yumm.
Lately, fakes have been everywhere- we all know which brand in particular has been selling by the hundred at your local Chinatown.
Personally, I don't give a damn whether someone is carrying a replica- unless they're obviously fake, in which case I very well may point it out and giggle (search for Dior or Louis Vuitton on eBay to see just how hilarious some handbags can be). Some people cry "terrorism!", but really, don't terrorists have worse things up their sleeves then getting money off of fakes? Maybe I'm naive, but I think that street drugs contribute an awful lot more money to so-called "terrorsim" (way to give general criminal activity a name that Americans are uncomfortable with, by the way).
Well, that's my opinion. *looks around at the nonexistent members of this community*. What do you think?
