Blogger trends: what are they, where do they come from and how are they created? Next up on “Investigating the blogosphere with Brunette Blogging”. I’m goofing around, I’m not going to write a deep and profound piece about this, but instead I searched for some of the prettiest pictures of some of the loveliest bloggers wearing certain “it-items”. Yep, I talked about this on Monday and now I’m writing about it on Friday. I’m such a big inspiration to myself!
The evidence: Zara, also known as heaven to every girl or woman who can’t afford real designer items but enjoys a decent copy of it nonetheless. The leather skirt was available in black and beige and sold out faster than Marni at H&M in New York (maybe exaggerating a little bit here). My theory? The combination of pleats and leather speaks to the good girl inside us, who wants to go a bit bad sometimes.
The bloggers: Carolina & Emily
Verdict? Guilty. I found it on sale, give me a break!
The evidence: It’s a fact, girls love shiny things. So when we get a chance to wear some glitter at our feet, we’ll take it! It pleases our inner princess. The true evidence that these glitter Giuseppe Zanotti boots were a big hit? Topshop created a similar version: also pretty, equally successful.
Verdict? Not guilty. Not that I don’t enjoy a good glitter, these just sold out before I even had a moment to think.
The evidence: The genius who came up with the idea to add leather sleeves to any kind of jacket, deserves several prizes. It’s one of those “so wrong, but yet so right” kind of things, which may explain why The Man Repeller herself is a big fan of this coveted piece.
The Bloggers: Andy & Leandra
Verdict? Guilty. Since people call me cute and adorable about ten times a day, I obviously needed this parka to toughen up my look a bit.
The evidence: Is it a giant cat? Is it a yeti? Why no, it’s the white fuzzy Zara coat! This piece can be found in many variations, such as the leopard or any other fuzzy (sometimes real) animal. Popular because: who doesn’t like soft, fuzzy things?
Verdict? Not guilty. I’ve yet to succumb to this trend. If you see a small ball of fur with brown hair passing by in the next months or so, you’ll know what has happened (a tiny yeti has eaten me and made a wig out of my hair, of course.)
