I believe that this phenonema is a matter of counter cultures. As fashion bloggers, we are a subculture. It's like when early 90s urban youth all wore Adidas sneakers and tracksuits and yearned to have that B-boy look or in the 50s when everyone wore turtlenecks to be a Beatnick. I believe that while some genuinely like the styles of whatever the new hot item may be, others simply find validation in the fact that more popular bloggers are wearing this item.
Now, I must say that I find nothing wrong with this. It's a personal decision that everyone makes. In my own style guidelines, I make it a point to not follow the crowd. (This is due to the fact that I grew up in a town of 2,000 and everyone had the same American Eagle everything.) Don't get me wrong, I freaking love those Zara heels (and the original Christian Louboutin Helmut). However, I would like to be known for looking like myself and not what someone else thinks I should look like.
What do you think of this movement?
