Comment on Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement (And no, we won’t “get a tan…”) by The Fashion Police.

Totally… when I had an office job, I could get myself sent home from work just by neglecting to wear blusher. And to be honest, even I would admit that sometimes I can look ill because of it, especially if I haven’t slept well (one downside of translucent skin is that it makes those dark shadows more obvious, unfortunately!) – definitely not going to be getting a suntan to make myself look “healthier” though!

Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement (And no, we won’t “get a tan…”)
Exactly – the phrase “healthy tan” gives me The Rage!

Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement (And no, we won’t “get a tan…”)
That’s a really good point, and one of the reasons I think the issue is quite a complex one. I’m perfectly happy to be pale, too, but as I said in the post, I’ve used fake tanner in the past, purely because I think my legs sometimes look better with a bit of colour, and I do agree that you have to know which colours suit you!

Iris Van Herpen X United Nude Biopiracy Boots: the strangest shoes ever?
And YOUR taste is just YOUR taste. Just because something is not ugly to you does not mean it’s not ugly. Do you see how that works? Or do you seriously think that you’re the only person in the world who is entitled to express an opinion on fashion? Because trying to bash someone just because they don’t share your taste seems pretty “infantile” to me.

Ask The Fashion Police: Should a 21-year-old wear Heelys?
I’m pretty sure William works for Heelys, so I wouldn’t take any of his many comments on the subject as “impartial” advice. I really hope Heelys aren’t spamming my website, because that would make them look incredibly unprofessional, I can’t really see why anyone would just randomly want to spend so much time trying to convince people to visit the Heelys website…

When two styles collide: ‘sexy’ meets sensible at Comme des Garçons
Oh dear… The word ‘sexy” is inverted commas. That means it’s being used ironically: the post makes the point that the dress is TRYING to look sexy, but is not, in fact, sexy. I guess I shouldn’t expect someone who appears to be barely literate to know that, though!

Style Trial | White cleated sole shoes
It’s a shame that people can’t just have different tastes without making it personal, and getting judgemental about it, whether it be in the form of branding stiletto-wearers “pretentious” or saying that those who prefer other styles are OBVIOUSLY fat. Can’t it just be that we like different things? Do we REALLY have to make little digs or outright attack people just because they don’t like the same shoes as us? Because that’s pretty sad, if so: this is supposed to be a site where people discuss clothes, not a site where we call each other names just because we don’t happen to have the same taste.

Old Navy Denies Photoshopping Thigh Gaps Onto Plus Size Jeans
They’re supposed to be plus sized, yes: if you click the link to the site you’ll see they’re part of their “plus” range. Not sure where you’re seeing an implication of 37″ hips, but the smallest size has a 47″ hip according to the size chart – people are annoyed because they feel the image has been photoshopped to look smaller than that.
