Sometimes i like your blog. Meaningful quotes. Inspirational stuff. Body positivity. Feminist stuff. And sometimes, you post stuff that is completely contradictory with everything mentioned above: misogynic quotes like "if you were a rockstar that's what you wife would look like" or "this is why i don't hang out with females". Pictures of luxury products, like chanel bags. And 95% of pictures here represent skinny white girls. It undermines the coherency of your blog and of your message.
If you actually look through my archive, you’d notice that nowhere near 95% of the girls I post are skinny white girls. Luxury, in no way, goes against body positivity, feminism, inspiration, spirituality, or anything of the sort. Like Deepak Chopra himself said, “Spiritual people should not be ashamed of being wealthy.” What I decide to post here are things I enjoy looking at, reading, and feel like sharing. This blog follows no rules or limitations except for what I consider moral, inspirational, motivational, or simply enjoyable. I think the many notes of appreciation I receive daily demonstrate how my message is very understandable and coherent for the readers. “I like art, and by art I mean music, poetry, sex, paintings, the human body, literature.. All of this is art to me.” I believe art encompasses anything from an impeccably manufactured machine like a Lamborghini, to couture pieces by any fashion designer. The time, detail, and precision that it takes to make one sole Chanel bag is outstanding, and I find that worthy of appreciation. There’s a quote from the Devil Wears Prada that also depicts how not superficial the industry actually is.
'This… stuff'? Oh. Okay. I see. You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select… I don't know… that lumpy blue sweater, for instance because you're trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don't know is that that sweater is not just blue, it's not turquoise. It's not lapis. It's actually cerulean. And you're also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves Saint Laurent… wasn't it who showed cerulean military jackets? I think we need a jacket here. And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. And then it, uh, filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic Casual Corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and it's sort of comical how you think that you've made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you're wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room from a pile of stuff.
Thanks so much for sharing your opinion, though! I hope you continue to enjoy some parts of the blog, or that you can now understand my point of view. I’m only a person that deeply enjoys aesthetics and uses this small space to share my taste with others while I also try to make the world a better place. You’re right, my love, it’s a hard thing to balance, but I’ll still keep trying.
