The Fashion Beauty Friend Friday group was created by Katy over at Modly Chic. For the first and third week of each month Katy puts together a set of questions and on Friday if you want to participate, you answer them on your blog and link back up at Modly Chic. On the other weeks, FBFF will be doing a Visual Friend Friday.
This week, we're talking about fads, trends, and being part of the "in" crowd.
1. Do you ever see a fad hit the stores and immediately dislike it? Has that fad ever began to grow on you?
I can't think of anything I immediately disliked. Maxi dresses grew on me over time. I didn't love those when they first became popular and never imagined they could be flattering on almost anyone. Glad I was wrong about that one.
2. Has the popularity of a certain piece of clothing or line ever convinced you to try on something (or purchase something) you dislike?
I would try on something I thought I disliked and then purchase it if trying it on changed my mind. But I wouldn't buy something I didn't like just because it was popular. Why would I do that?
3. Have you ever changed your mind about a trend after seeing it around for a while?
Yeah. The Uggs. They were trendy, then they were everywhere, then 8 years later they were still everywhere, so I got them because I'd wanted them for awhile.
4. Do you feel a certain pressure to have specific items in your closet because 'everyone' else does?
Not at all. If everyone has something I don't want it because I don't want to be wearing what everyone else is (talking about trends and fads only of course, not applicable to staple items, classics, or basics).
5. Be honest, what do you think of the Missoni line? Did you grab any items? Is it worth the eBay prices?
I've already posted about what I got, so I won't repeat that. The quality of the line and the pieces in it (that I've seen) are nice pieces and good quality. Everything about the way Target handled it was unprofessional, amateurish, and ridiculous for a retail company that size. I don't know what the eBay prices are, but what something is worth depends on the sentimental value to the customer. I'm not paying a penny over retail for Missoni for Target or virtually anything else on this planet, but that's me.
