Fashionista Web Recommendations: Weardrobe.com

Do you ever get sick of seeing at those twiggy, unreal models in the glossies? I do. Don’t get me wrong—I love fashion.  I crave the mix of creativity, confidence, and pure poetry that an especially inspired ensemble offers.  However, I tire of seeing magazine models who don’t look like any real woman I’ve ever seen—and they’re not. Real, I mean. They’re not real. Those images are heavily altered. The body’s natural distinctions—an uneven eyebrow, a crooked tooth, a birthmark—are removed, until all that’s left is an empty image of society’s unrealistic expectations for beauty.

Pow! That first paragraph was a strike against The Man.  Take that, The Man!  Ok, now that I got that feminist tirade out of my system, I have a recommendation for you: Weardrobe.com.  Weardrobe.com is a social networking site for fashionistas.  Visitors can enjoy a buffet of fashion delights– all worn and posted by the real beauties themselves. The ladies on the site look like people I might enjoy chatting up at a summer BBQ– they’re, unique, confident, and completely posh.

Take the Weardrober shown above, Noel Vallens.  With a clever mice belt, swank party dress from H&M, and Seychelles pumps, she’s as stylish as any Milan diva. Also: I’m more likely to buy the items she’s chosen, since I know she’s real.  Unlike those magazine models I ragged on earlier, Noel actually walks around in these clothes.  Seeing a real lady look so fantastic inspires me that to plan a few fashion hijinks of my own.

Surf the wave of Shoefly’s Seychelles offerings to find your own weardrobe.com-worthy footwear. To learn more about Ms. Valens, visit her blog, The Owls Are Not What They Seem.
