Have you ever noticed how people never seem completely happy with their age and maybe, to a larger extent, happy with who they are? (That's a whole other issue, though) I notice this a lot among fashion bloggers through the way we all dress. While Madonna dressed twenty years younger, fashion bloggers dress twenty years older. And if we don't dress older, many dress to get pageviews.
Pageviews. The delicious, sweet nectar ever blogger wants to enjoy that not many get a large chance to try. So many bloggers sacrifice their style and voice in order to play to what seems to be popular in the here and now.
|Wow, so youthful. Like a fairy in a dewy grove.|
What I've noticed recently is that many bloggers are tired of the typical. They want a different opinion or a different style which doesn't age someone into retirement (I'm looking at you, Pink Peonies). That said, it's all about personal preference. Some people like pencil skirt, chiffon blouse, and heels every day and that's great to rock if you truly like what you're wearing. But if that's not your true style and you're going to class dressed like that everyday, you turn into 60% of other bloggers.
To sum this up, not every blogger is going to have super unique style. I acknowledge that I dress cute but I wouldn't get anywhere if I didn't allow my voice to show through my posts. No one is going to remember the girl who dresses in pencil skirts every day unless they have mad style or a sassy, unique voice. Aging up does not mean increasing your hits.
