Taking a quick break from writing two assignments as I wade ankle deep in academic articles and university text books. Always good for a quick fix before filling my head with concepts of management communication of the intricacies of consumer behaviour is something a little light-hearted. I stumbled across ‘Shit Bloggers Wear‘ fairly recently and love the unique approach to the world of fashion blogging. Perhaps the irony for me lies in the fact that I have either coveted or own some of the illustrated items, as certain pieces garner popularity, albeit occasionally only briefly. Oh, and if you haven’t seen this video yet, I suggest you do. Aside from the incredibly unique marketing campaign and buzz this has surely created, I can’t help but focus on the behaviours of the participants, and the clever way in which this was shot.

    It’s an interesting subject. Blogs changed the way I look at things. Even though I wanted THAT Celine bag for a brief moment, soon I was put off by seeing it on every other blog and lost interest. Most of the other items leave me cold.. They say to be a successful blogger you need to be unique, yet there are so many things/items they have in common. As shown here.. Bloggers have even put me off Zara a bit and it used to be my favourite shop. But seeing an item on every other blogger is boring.. So I rather shop elsewhere these days.

      I have to agree with you – and that’s how I’ve felt about a lot of things. It’s like that Zara skort – I wasn’t even tempted as the first I saw of it wasn’t just a little, it was a LOT. Although I suppose that does seem to entice people to buy more often than not. I’ve definitely been a bit more strategic about where I shop these days, it’s nice to have something that’s unique.

    I hadn’t seen that blog before but I’ve just taken a look and it’s brilliant! What an interesting and unique was of blogging as you say. I’ve got some of the items but it was interesting to read the ‘about’ page. I cringed too thinking oh no… I’ve got some of the blogger popular items but at the end of the day, I like them and most I had before blogging so I don’t feel like they are such a ‘blogger’s sin item’ ha ha… I do agree with Adela though. Seeing some things everywhere you look does have an off putting effect. I think there is just so much on blogs these days that we just have more access to it and it gets overwhelming some times. Thanks for sharing. Great great blog!

      I hear you – I have been a little the same, although can’t deny I’ve been influenced at times, mostly because it has made me aware of something. I think I’ve become more immune though, or at least I hope! I’ve notice that I’ve been a bit more strategic about where I shop these days, it’s nice to have something that’s unique.

    I came across that blog a few weeks ago too, I think another blogger linked to it, such a fun & interesting way of looking at fashion blogging. I spent ages scrolling through the pages & laughing! I don’t own that many things on the list, but there were a couple of items! Also, that Wang video scares me a little bit… Haha!
