In Tavi Gevinson: From Teen Fashion Queen to Broadway Star (which really isn’t about Tavi), Arabelle Sicardi discusses how fashion bloggers have cashed in on their power by striking deals with companies, etc. One way this has happened is through the “outfit of the day,” something I quickly noticed during my second foray into fashion/lifestyle blogging. Posts tagged with #OOTD usually feature a fashion blogger sharing her or his daily sartorial swag.
Up until now, I haven’t (save for a couple of instagram posts of my fashion mistakes). A couple of reasons why:
- My fashion style is pretty classic and simple: crisp shirts, good shoes and MAC lipstick in Red. That’s it.
- Although I share quite a bit online, there’s something about taking a pic of what I’m wearing every. single. day. that seems strange and slightly off putting to me. I don’t know why. Granted, if I’m rocking a special frock, I’ll snap something, but that doesn’t happen every day.
- It’s a military operation for me to even get up and dressed. Stopping to take a pic before running to the tram just doesn’t fit into my morning routine.
All of the above doesn’t mean I’m not open to changing my mind. I’m just still wrapping my head around the concept.
Do you post #OOTDs? Why or why not?
By the way, I show off my wrinkled shirts a lot. Follow me on instagram to see them.
