I definitely agree that our habits and their context are worth talking about. I just don't think fashion blogs do very much of that (at least not the ones I've seen, so please feel free to point me to some that do). Those discussions may come up every so often, but they're not really what the blogs are about, which is generally clothing/photos the blogger likes. So acting like fashion blogs are about sociology as much as clothing is disingenuous. I also think it hints at an underlying sense of embarrassment. Posts like the one you linked to read like apologias for blogging about clothes. They suggest there's something slightly shameful in liking and paying attention to clothing, that they have to defend themselves against accusations that they're frivolous and superficial by showing how they're really thinking about deep, important things. But the majority of the time they're not thinking about deep, important things. I think people should like what they like and spend their time how they choose without apology, and shouldn't bother with dishonest justifications for doing so. My favorite part is "wisdom molting into instinct." I'm not sure what exactly wisdom would need to shed (like a snakeskin) to become instinct—knowledge? consciousness? something else that a person can't really do without?
