Someone just sent me a link to this riveting piece of commentary.
"The Sexy Pedestrian blog didn’t have anything particularly wrong with it per se. Written by a journalist from Cork, it did provide information on both spend and splurge items and the ‘Most Popular Blogs List’ was very handy for looking at some of her best work. I think my hesitance towards this site was that it lacks uniqueness and it would be easy to get uninterested with it quite quickly."
Hang on a second. What? It's yay or nay motherfucker!
Vicky giveth and Vicky taketh away - 'This provides information on items in various price ranges and a handy list... both of which I am basically uninterested in.'
TS Pedestrian, despite being different from the other sites mentioned, "lacks uniqueness".
Vicky's crushing disappointment doesn't end with Pedestrian, "The next, Dublin Streets, to me was not a fashion blog at all. Mainly consisting of pictures of random people around the streets of Dublin it looked like the extended section of a magazine that does style spots on the average person. Even the pictures didn’t exactly demonstrate cutting edge fashion - just normal everyday clothes (skinny jeans featured heavily)."
Now why would that be, Vicky? Let's squeeze our eyes shut really tight and think and think and think. Would it be that Dublin Streets photograph random people in Dublin? Where in Dublin? Stay with me Vicky... you can do it, that's right... on the street! You're dead right though, it is a shame that people don't make more of an effort, despite the fact they don't know they're going to be photographed. An occasional toga or a pair of culottes would go down a treat, but dressing up would defeat the purpose really, wouldn't it?
What the fuck is cutting edge fashion anyway? I'd love to know what kind of far-out shit goes down inside the gates of DCU, but I'm pretty sure that, even if Cutting Edge Vicky is wearing nothing but a Viking helmet, Balmain shoulder pads and a vacant expression, skinny jeans are still pretty much the order of the day.
"Now I can hear your thoughts already." she whines, "Irish people giving advice on fashion and beauty? Us Irish are known for many things: the craic, the Guinness, the potatoes. But fashion? Not so much."
Potatoes. The classic lazy 'Oirish' reference. Aren't we all mad Irish people and aren't we all made entirely out of potatoes and Guinness.
Maybe instead of making lazy observations, the Vickster could use her potato head to create the unique, cutting edge blog she's looking for, there's obviously a gap in the market for a really super one.
