6 Things We Need To Get Off Our Chests Before The World Ends
actually think the world is about to end, and we’ve been hard pressed to find a lot of people who do. Still, the prospect of The Rapture got us to thinking that there are a few things we should probably get off our chests before 144,000 of us get absorbed into the cosmos. Or whatever is about to happen.
We think we’ve lead good, honest lives here at Styleite, but we’d be lying if we said there weren’t a few things that have annoyed us or that we regretted during our time on Earth. So in the spirit of honesty and full disclosure, here are a few items on which we’re just going to go ahead and own up to and/or apologize for.
1.Making so much fun of Anna Wintour.
That thing about the
Le Sportsac bag was probably a little overboard. Maybe it was a lot cuter in person? Plus, no matter what we say about her taste, she's sort of the reason why we're in business to begin with. If it weren't for her, there wouldn't be nearly as many people interested in fashion as there are today. That whole celebrities-as-fashion figures thing she more or less invented? Gold. Pure. Effing. Gold.
2.Not buying anything from Lanvin Hearts H&M.
That was a mistake. But at the time, we were all like, "The clothes are as cute as the lines will be long -- it's going to be a madhouse. We have things to blog about." Yeah. We should have just put the site on hold that day. We still have dreams about that
faux fur coat.
3.Not buying things we should have saved up for.
Direct quote from Styleite's editor-in-chief Verena: "We regret not buying those expensive, classic, you'll-have-it-forever items we
thought were too expensive when instead we spent easily the same amount on 25 pieces of crap from H&M. (Sorry H&M. We still love you. We just love Chanel more.)"
4.The way all fashion blogs are lumped into one category.
People assume that because
Styleite is a fashion blog, we take pictures of ourselves standing in front of barns wearing kewl clothes, too! But we don't. We report news and sometimes we even break stories. So the next time someone asks us what kind of DSLR we use for our personal photography, we're going to start throwing punches. We hope there's a better Internet classification system in the afterlife.
5.Not wearing more fascinators.
Have you seen
those things? They're amazing.
6.Knowing the name of every model ever.
We can identify almost every model on the catwalk (and most of the models off it) by name, age and agency.
Gisele. Kate. Iman. Naomi. Baptiste. Karlie, Karlie, Karlie. Do you know how many actually useful things we could manage to remember if we didn't know every single thing about them? So many things!
