The Millionaire Blogger Club, Major Tinder Fail, and the Fashion Continuum

aimee To all the cubicle servants toiling away in exchange for a couple of days in the sun, you’re in the wrong profession. Applying zero fashion experience to putting together outfits and shilling for brands can make you a millionaire. WWD reports that the human brands are making, like a lot. The big ones can demand $50,000 for flagship store openings and launches. The blogger Bryan Boy (real name Grey-Yambao) talked about how a blog business requires more than you might expect. “Now, $100,000 is not enough,” Grey-Yambao, 32, said. “For a young, upstart blogger, $100,000 may seem like a lot of money. [But] as a business, a legit business, $100,000 won’t really bring you that far. You have a lot of expenses.” Based on data for her web site, Rachel Parcell of Pink Peonies in Salt Lake City will make at least $960,000 for the year from “affiliate programs” and that’s estimated on top of her profitable partnerships with TRESemmé or J. Crew. These are some expensive unknowns. Why have a real job when you can be a pricey fake fan? (WWD)

  • Pimpin’ ain’t easy. Josh tried to booty call 32 “gorgeous girls” on Tinder with a group text and got busted. The girls were not pleased, and made fun of him. But come on ladies, you didn’t even let him explain! If you just gave him a second or 32 to open up, he’d tell you how uniquely gorgeous each and every one of you 32 individual snowflakes are. He’s not getting a sext anytime soon, so he’ll probably have to stick with those sorority Tumblrs for awhile. But luckily frat web sites exist to curate the best of the cheerleading and yoga stance pictures, so it’s not that bad, Josh. But maybe change your name to Joshua like that guy on Girls. (EliteDaily)
