Last night I vented to my boyfriend about how I just couldn’t figure out what to wear and how my room was a complete disaster and that nothing I tried on fit right, blah, blah! Since he is a guy who cannot relate to my feeling of wardrobe helplessness, he expressed that he couldn’t understand my feelings and couldn’t understand why I did not have the capability to, and I quote, “just pick something!”
Judging by the look on my face, he regretted telling me that. I remember sitting up and mimicking, “Just pick something?” Then more angrily, “Just pick something?!”
At that moment I thought of the perfect topic to blog about which is *drumroll here*
10 things you should never say to a fashion girl
Here’s a list so check it twice before you even think of saying these words to a fashionista
1.”Just Pick Something” (sorry babe)
Let me break it down for you why you shouldn’t tell a fashionista this. We would rather be overdressed than show up somewhere looking sloppy. We do not like to look sloppy and we want to look gorgeous. I don’t think my boyfriend would appreciate it if “I just picked” a hoodie and sweats with flip-flops instead of taking the time to look nice. While he wears his button-up shirt and cool kicks, I am pretty sure that he would not want to be seen next to a girl on campus that other students cannot tell if she’s another student or a hobo. No. Not going to happen. Therefore, I cannot and I will not, “just pick something.”
2. “How do you have nothing to wear? You have tons of clothes!”
Yes, we know we have tons of clothes. But trends are always changing and so is our desire to keep up with those trends. Is it such a crime?
3. “You’re going out in that?”
It breaks my heart when I hear this and I know this statement goes both ways whether you look overdone or looking like a walking wardrobe malfunction. Either way, it’s pretty heartbreaking to hear this. If a fashionista takes time to get ready and walks out in a form fitting dress and tall boots with heels and her significant other or loved one tells her she needs to “tone it down” or “change into something else,” it sucks. I hate hearing this, even when I know it is for my own good. When I hear people say this, majority of the time the person saying it is someone who loves the person who just walked out to show off their dress attire. Words hurt more when the words come out of someone you love’s mouth. And it sucks even more when your really thought you looked adorable.
4. “Aren’t you going to be cold in that?”
Let’s face facts: even though the weather is going to get colder, you still want to wear skirts and dresses right? In my opinion, you should be okay if you have a trench coat jacket to wear whenever you’re outdoors. A few years ago I wore a high-neck, floral blouse with a blur skirt that hit me right above the knee with some flare to it and heels for Christmas. I was proud of myself for finding the perfect blue coat to wear over it. Once I got inside my grandma’s house, once I took off my jacket and sat down, she took one look at my outfit and asked me, “aren’t you cold in that?” Because she is my grandma, I laughed it off.
5. “This item is sold out in your size…”
This is a straight-up horror story. Period.
6. “Maybe this can be your Christmas/ Birthday gift”
No. I want it now or as soon as pay day comes!
7. “Gift cards and money are the worst thing to give someone for their birthday/Christmas!”
*spits out water in shock* Says who?? We can all use a little more money whether it comes in paper or plastic. I don’t see why these things are viewed as “thoughtless” gifts. Whenever I get these things, I know that the person knows that I am picky and a broke college student. They are doing me a big favor by giving me a gift card or money instead of buying me something that I probably wont use. I would like to know your opinion on this! Do you think gift cards and money are thoughtless gifts? Leave a comment!
8. “Oh, you must have a lot of money”
A person’s closet builds up over time. Not all at once! Can fashion blogging get expensive? Yes! But so does smoking and drinking. So does musical equipment. So does automobile maintenance. So does sports. So does art. All hobbies come with a price whether it is financially or time consuming. We do these things by choice and no, this does not give anyone the right to assume we have all the money in the world. I assure you that a lot of us do not.
9. “You can never find anything good at the thrift store”
Yes you can! People get rid of great, quality items all the time! You just need to take the time to look around.
10. “Maybe your outfit will finally catch so and so’s attention!”
I heard this a lot when I was single, but you know how us girls do NOT by $30 blushes to get a boy’s attention? The same goes for clothes too! Especially fashion girls who buy clothes because they want to look good for themselves!
