You know you're a fashion blogger if...



15. You have a boyfriend, husband, or mother who is sick of taking your photo.

14. You know what color-blocking means.

13. Almost every single clothing item or accessory you own has been displayed on the internet, at least once.

12. "Fabulous" and "gorgeous" and "amazing" are the most commonly used words in your vocabulary.

11. You accidentally sign an e-mail with “xoxo”… to your boss.

10. You know what random girls around the world have been wearing every single day for two years, but you still don’t know their last names.

9. You don’t think #10 is weird.

8. You have lied and said you liked a blogger’s outfit, even though you thought it was crap.

7. You have kindly written “nice post!” on someone’s blog even though the post was written in foreign language, and pretty much could have been political propaganda demanding you to join the Communist Party.

6. You are personally insulted if someone stops following you, and then you spend too much time trying to figure out who it was and why they left.

5. Most of your followers are girls under the age of 25.

4. You display the contents of your purse to strangers. And they actually care.

3. If you ever decide to travel abroad, you most likely have at least one contact in every country.

2. You have received the same blog award, at least three times.

1. You’re smiling because you know exactly what I’m talking about.

Shalini said...

I love #11. (This list could also be titled, "Reasons you're probably not going to be a fashion blogger, ever, Shalini.")

Shybiker said...

That's so funny! And so true. I think every one of them applies to me which, in a weird way, makes me proud.

Sunkissed said...

You know me well ;)

Fashion, Art and other fancies said...

Crickey - sounds awful. Not a very delightful post but I'm all for humour though. Have a nice weekend.

SassyUptownChic said...

LMFAOOOOO!!! All of these are so true. HAHAHAHAHA I had a blast reading these Jenn. You are hilarious funny! Have a great day my friend.

Damsels said...

I dont know whether to laugh or feel ashamed. but i will do the former seeing as you and i are both bloggers.
we should all start chanting and joining hands in a circle "one of us one of us !!" lol

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

LOL! #7 really makes me giggle ;)

Esmeralda said...

Hahaha, love your post (it is true)

Mouthwash said...

AH! You nailed it Jen! Right on the head. Ugh, my bf is SO sick of taking photos. Can I add one to your list?

You justify clothing purchases as "investments" and "reading content" for your readers.

And, you lust after camera's that cost just as much, if not more than a Chanel bag.


Lovely post!!

Savvy Gal said...

LOL...

Josie said...

Too cute, Jen. And, yeah... Real life. Every. Single. One.

Gayatri said...

This is so cute and apt! I was giggling through each point. Maybe you should do one for personal bloggers too! :)

Shannon said...

Hilarious.

You know you just had a baby when you follow tons of mommy blogs and use the word "adorable" 25 times a day.

You are breath of fresh air, my dear!

azu said...

LOL! Dammit...you've figured me out ;)

I love it when you make fun of fashion bloggers. Your last one was hilarious as well.

jenn said...

Tights Lover said...

Too funny. I loved #7. I'm always sitting there saying "damn...what should I say in the comment??".

skippysays said...

Hehe, cute list! I can relate to most (but not all) of these. Honestly, I won't say I like an outfit if I don't. I'd rather just not comment...

Sherin said...

Haha, AMAZING!!! It's all so true. #13 is my favourite. And I've definitely done #6.

Suzy Home Made said...

hahaha, I love #10. It's weird how...stalkerish we can be!

Nicole✗✗ said...

Haha!! This was hilarious and apparently spot on. I know I can be guilty of some of these things myself. As a blogger or follower.

Olga said...

Everything you've said about a fashion bloggers is funny and true. Sometimes, I wonder about how strange it is that fashion bloggers are so productive.

Alexandria said...

Number 6. All day. Every day. Currently actually in that situation...

Elisabeth. said...

Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

It all sounds perfectly normal to me. Maybe I should become a fashion blogger too? ;-) Btw, I am 48 so your #5 does not work! Well done Jenny. Posting something for you on FB tonight. Hope you like it ;-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Stephanie said...

I think I should do a similar post on my own blog, except make it "You know you're NOT a fashion blogger when..." My list would include:

- pyjamas are viable daytime attire
- you once wore a purple plaid dress with brown striped legwarmers
- you ask your husband "does this match?" before leaving the house
- you wear Halloween socks in April

Stephanie said...

Ummm...I mean...nice post.

Meri said...

ahaha- 10, 9, and 4 are my favorites :) This is funny!

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...
