WTT: UGLY SHOES ARE UGLY.

Welcome back to another edition of What The Trend!  Today We’re going to get right to it with a trend that has just been confusing the hell out of me for some time and I am ready to be brutally honest: UGLY SHOES. Honestly….why the F*!K are we calling these stylish?

I’m short on witty comments as my passion for disliking this “Trend” is raging, so let’s inspect, shall we?

The point where it all began:

I am positive you’ve all seen this by now, but am I really the only one wondering WTF Balenciaga was trying to achieve by calling this high fashion?  If you’re thinking I’m being a tad too harsh, go out an pay $850 for these over-sized gardening rubber soles and wear them on a date, or a night out, lemme know how it goes. Just don’t get jealous when you’re date and friends have cuter shoes than you.

The reality of this horror trend seems to be that they were created to make people look, and it worked.  We’re looking, we’re wondering, and now they should be properly disposed of ASAP.

Sure, we live in a time where you are able to represent yourself however you please, and I’m all for the power of self-expression through style, however does anyone truly feel any kind of fabulous when they slip into these uber clunky disasters?

Like are they even supportive?

If you’re still like, but, its called “FaShUn” I for one cannot think of an ensemble that these compliment. Sure, comfort is playing a crucial role in clothing and style now, especially as the rise of athleisure is not goin’ no where (which that I can totally get on board with)  But these sneaks are not even workout worthy. And frankly, they don’t even look comfortable.

As far as I’m concerned these shoes feel like a social experiment proving the power of a designer’s brand name is stronger than style itself. And the theory worked, WE FELL FOR IT.

WHY stoop to this level?  TBH these feel like a waste of time, money and resources.  (oh right, they’re $820….a solid portion of  paying rent or ya know…living)

This trend needs to die off, and fast. 

So before I continue on my rant against this attack on all things stylish and good in the world,  BURN. THESE. SHOES.

That is all.

On The Real: What Happens to the Fashion?

Hey Everyone!  Welcome back to Eat Your Glitter!  If you’re new to the party, ✨Welcome Glitter shower for you! ✨

So Today I’m trying out a new segment for the blog called “On the Real”  For this, I’m here to break down some thoughts and particular mind pondering that sometimes we overlook, especially when it comes style!  And maybe you guys can join in the convo with your own insight!  Please do.

HERE—-> If you didn’t want to read the intro, I’m here to ask one question today:

WHAT THE F*!$  HAPPENS TO ALL THE CLOTHES THAT FASHION BLOGGERS WEAR?

The other day as I browsed my feed of style star bloggers, it got me thinking.  I noticed a fundamental element in which my personal life can not relate to.  No one is an outfit repeater!! HOW is this possible? Are they not human? Are they style Goddesses that dissolve fabric after wearing it ONE TIME?

To be fair, I completely understand the reasoning behind this, being that a style blogger’s entire job is to showcase new looks, keep their followers engaged and even represent a brand they are working with. But let’s bring this down into reality, their closets must be EXPLODING.  Where does it all go?!?!

 

Okay, so these are just 2 image examples, since I am sure you can all scroll through your Instagram feeds and see the point I’m making, but what kind of augmented reality is this?? Who has an endless closet with a clothing pattern that regenerates everyday?

I don’t know about you all, but even at an attempt to not repeat for a week or so, I’m tempted to reach for the comfort of my same black t-shirts and jean stash.

Call me lazy if you will but to that I say:

If it isn’t broke why fix it, right?  Within our fashion fantasies of course we all dream of living the style lives of the elite influencers, but how realistic can this be?

For instance, if I like the way a dress looks, I’m definitely going to be rocking that dress on various occasions.  When it comes down to it, we define our style with our own point of view.  So even if you closet matches mine and looks like this:

Outfit repeating is normal.  Why should we hide it? Wear what you love, and what makes you feel like you!

If you have any gems of wisdom about the secret to style blogger’s, share a comment! If you just wanna chat, share a comment! And if you guys like this new type of post, lemme know and there will be more to come!
