@faribeana88 - first off, thank you kindly for including me in your list of posters whos fits you enjoy, you put in very esteemed company, and i appreciate that.
i did not read everybody's answers to your post as thoroughly as i should have, so i apologize if i am beating a dead horse here. on a surface level, i do understand what you are saying, and its true, there are a lot of poor fits being posted. however, that is always how its been, at least as long as i have been here. and not too long ago, i was one of those people. my fits were turrble.
Warning: DEETS (Click to show)
as an aside, sometimes feedback is given in a dickish way, and i do not condone that. sometimes people do bring that upon themselves when they take something personally that is not meant to be, and sometimes people do act like dicks just for the sake of that, and such people should generally be ignored imo.
here is where it can go wrong, and at times, some people on the forum do pander to this, and i think its bad. bad for the forum and bad for looking good. when people say, BUT I LIKE THIS, I GET SO MANY COMPLIMENTS IN REAL LIFE!! WHY CANT YOU LET ME BE ME!!!! yeah, thats nice, start a blog. their are certain fairly objective guidelines that make a bad fit bad. and there is no escaping it. when people start pandering to that, and slapping everyone on the back for trying, its not helping anyone.
maybe its because sometimes someone does not want to accept that their look is a fail in the ideals of SF or maybe they dont want to have to buy new stuff, yes, if everything you have sucks, you will need to get new stuff, different combinations of the same bad items will always be bad. maybe they really think it looks good, who knows, but when anyone refuses to at least consider that what they are wearing is no bueno, and have an open mind about it, thats where things fall apart imo. and generally, people like that, fade away fast.
no collection of fits can all be good, and it shouldnt be that way. there should be room for people to come in here without a clue, and grow. as long as people are open to growth, and as long as we have posters that continue to provide helpful and useful feedback, its all good by me.
well said stitches! I should've been more neutral in my interjection but that is a learning point for next time. You are one wise dude!
