Copy Paste Paste Paste

An eternal pet peeve of mine is the lack of individuality in our part of the world. People are always afraid of other people judging them, so they do whatever it takes to please said people. My question to you is, why not please yourselves? I can’t even fathom why some girls feel obligated to follow fashion rules to be considered fashionistas, what an abused adjective that turned out to be.

When it comes to fashion, everyone is so busy following the latest trends and getting sucked into the “must haves” of each season, that they forget that once they walk out the door, every other person will be wearing the exact outfit. Whatever happened to panicking when girls saw someone else wearing the same dress, is it so last century? My eyes hurt from the sea of light blue blouses that are either dresses, off the shoulder tops, or can be tied at the waist. And so on and so forth every season with a different trend that becomes so overdone and over-worn. read more

Tag A Friend Who Would Wear Air Max

That phrase is my newest pet peeve. Yes, tagging our friends who would dare to wear this unattainable pair of Nike is the newest thing on Instagram.

Almost everywhere on social media I see photos of girls wearing these sneakers, which is alright, except when everyone starts idolizing them. Am I missing something? Since when is it an achievement when we buy running shoes, that we must rub it in everyone’s face? And how they have become so over rated that they are being worn with dresses and skirts is something I cannot understand. They are pretty shoes, I wouldn’t mind owning a pair, just like I own other sneakers, but I would never flaunt them the way I see others do. read more

With Age Comes The Handbag

A couple or ten years ago, high-schoolers and university students were more humble in what they wore, opting to choose items that are age appropriate. Today in a fashion conscious visual world of social media, filters and hashtags, I can’t help but notice that too much of a good thing is actually bad.

The main issue here isn’t the savvy shoppers, its the young women trying too hard to look older. And that is being done via their handbag. The youngsters in this present day are carrying the Chanel Boy or Lady Dior. read more

High Heels at the Mall

My list of fashion pet peeves is quite long, and opinionated as I am, every once in a while I vent on the blog. This time I want to discuss wearing high heels at the mall.

I more often than not, see young women walking (nay, wobbling) around in sky high heels at the most inappropriate places such as the mall, the supermarket or open air souks. I don’t understand why they would impose on themselves such torture. Ladies, if you are going to shop, it takes time and effort, and the last thing you need is to be walking on little stilts. You need to be comfy to walk in and out of shops and try on clothes for quite some time. read more

Converse Wedge Sneakers

As I walked past the Converse shop last week, I was shocked to say the least, when I saw a pair of wedge sneakers as part of their new line.

My jaw dropped. Ugh!

There are a few things I hate more than wedge sneakers, and I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing them. I don’t care how big a trend they are, sneakers are for comfort, not for the extra leverage in height.

I can probably understand shoe designers introducing the wedge sneaker to their line for a more casual style, but to see Converse do them? Why? To boost sales? read more

Crop Tops in Winter

One of my pet peeves is crop tops in winter. I have seen this so many times the past season, even when the temperature is around 10°C. I’m not talking about the tops that cover up when you wear high waist pants; that trend can be tastefully done while being season-appropriate. I mean low waist pants with a top that’s just under the bust. Regardless of whether its in style or not, it is more suitable for warmer weather. We all know the aftermath of having our belly exposed in the cold, and it ain’t pretty. read more
