Provocative and honest post about shopping and commerce and personal style over at Ermie. I often feel quite shallow when I post about fashion and shopping, rather than, say, photos + recipe of a homemade meal I made from scratch.
The lovely Jocund Company posted earlier about the ‘trend’ of young women window shopping and taking photos of clothing that they do not purchase (I definitely do this). She calls it ‘lifestyle promotion.’ Maybe it’s a bit self-involved — I mean, it’s a BLOG after all! — but is it superficial conspicuous consumption, tainted by narcissism and ego? I don’t see it that way.
I don’t think anyone deserves to feel guilty or weird about sharing the things that they genuinely love. I love beautiful things and pattern and design and luxury, and I like sharing those things with the world, too — and I will never apologize for that.
