Reflections on Lookbook.

Look Book. I've been a member of LookBook for about 6 months now and I have an insane love/hate relationship with it. I love Look Book for many reasons. It's so fun to see what kids around the world wear, and how they express themselves through fashion. I love that feeling I get when people like my look. And, it's a great place to get style inspiration.

I also hate Look Book for many reasons. Most of the looks the people on Look Book that have superhigh Karma and averages have really cool pictures, not necessarily amazing looks. Its almost like these people have photographer boyfriends or something. I don't have that and I feel like people may not like my looks because my pictures aren't cool enough, not because my style sucks. Also, all the looks are pretty much the same. EVERYONE dresses like Erin Wasson or Rumi Neely. Don't get me wrong, I think those girls have great style, but it just seems like being trendy is more important than having a unique style on Look Book. Lastly, everyone is really skinny. Although there's absolutely nothing wrong with being thin, there are so many stylish girls out there who are bigger than a size 2. I don't think those girls get much attention on sites like Look Book.

Basically Look Book makes me feel a little insecure sometimes. Does it have that effect on you, or am I the only one?

  1. I totally agree with you. I feel like the majority of the looks that get hyped a lot are totally average outfit-wise, but very attractive, thin, well-photographed girls are wearing said outfits. It's pretty annoying. On the other hand, I am totally addicted to it!

  2. I think you're super cute just the way you are! I don't like Rumi's style at all, I find it trashy... but I can appreciate her style for what it is. xo Cari http://isnotfashion.blogspot.com

  3. You're on there? Where? I'm days old lurking on that site so I might have missed your pix.

    No, you are not the only one but for me it's a bit different. I'm envious of all that layering of clothes... something I can't do living in TX (except for maybe 30 days out of the year). I also have to remain somewhat covered up so those cute little summer outfits are not an option for me inspirationally speaking that is. Gawd, I'm such a downer. I'm going back to lurking. =/
