Now I'm not going to pretend that I wasn't a tad jealous that recently fellow fashion bloggers got a preview of Anthropologie before it opened in Regents Street, London. A pale shade of green cast a shadow over my pale complexion.
And then the wonderful Mrs Fashion newly returned to the world of blogging suddenly beat a hasty retreat undone by then new demands of daily blogging, being first and the fact bloggers often get their own press days and info prior to the journalists. Mmmm.
Suddenly the world of blogging looks a bit different and in a sense one has to choose a side? And that side is probably being an insider or an outsider. I feel torn as someone who works within the fashion industry (in some small part) it is a choice between ego and principles. Do I attend to the ego and look to become part of the fashion blogging in crowd (who are all very nice) or do I keep to the principle of my fashion blogging - affordability, good style advice without bias or influence all with a nod to personal economic reality. Mmmm again.
Ah its easy I'd rather keep Mrs Fashion than sell out ...shame she's gone again. Pass the Anthropologie canapes...
What do you think inside or out?
