There’s been a lot of fun going on around the interwebs tonight. With my wife off at a baby shower all night, I’ve been left alone at home with sweat pants, sweet potato fries, soda-pop, and South Park streaming instantly over Netflix.
But it’s the fashion bloggers that have kept me entertained this evening! I confessed a few months ago that I’ve filled my Google Reader with women’s fashion blogs. Did y’all know that there is a huge online community of women who post their Outfit of the Day (OOTD) every single day? And some of these women are dedicated to wearing only clothes from Anthropologie! Seriously! Some of these women have the Anthro catalogue totally memorized, they know the official name of every item, and they know which ones are available in store and which are available only online. And most of these blogs have a readership WAY higher than I do here at SingleSpeed. This fashion blogging is serious business y’all.
Well, there’s been some controversy on the fashion blogs after one blogger (who typically wears size 6-8) posted some photos of her OOTD and said the following:
I do believe this is my favorite dress ever! It just works so good with my body type – a rare thing. I’ve seen some of the less curvy bloggers try this on and where everything usually looks fantastic on them this dress just kinda hangs on them. Finally a dress that looks better on curves! LOL!
The “petite bloggers”(which are legion), took offense at this comment, and all of a sudden this turned into a curvy bloggers vs. petite bloggers thing. People were offended. Posts were removed. Apologies were given. And people are still over there accusing each other of being either insensitive or overly sensitive of body type issues. I even threw in a comment or two of my own just to stir the pot a little bit (although I was promptly ridiculed for being male). It’s been pretty entertaining, I have to admit.
So, what did you do tonight?
