I recently got an invitation through my email to join a site called "lookville". This is from the website:
"LookVille is a social fashion network made up of people from all around the world answering one simple question: How do I look?
In LookVille, you can search for fashion inspirations or take photos of your (or other people's) looks. The live feedback you get from our members will help you pick out cute outfits and try new styles.
When you are done, help others pick out their outfits and trade fashion tips or style advices with people on the other side of the globe."
I thought to myself.. "hmm, this looks interesting". It appealed to the nosey person in me too, as I like looking at both plus size and straight size style. The majority of it being straight size on this site, which didn't bother me at all.
I (thought) it would be a great place to ask other people how to style different outfits and get fresh ideas.
So, off i went and posted a photo of myself from this post .. A post that had a lot of positive feedback and I felt pretty good about.
I asked the simple question "How else could I style this dress up?" with the info underneath reading: "I love this dress but have only worn it once! I need other ways to dress it up (or down)"
I was looking for examples, maybe different colours to wear with the dress, shoes etc.. NOT the following comments that were written:
"to be completely honest, I'm not a big fan of the dress. doesn't fit you the best. it's a tad loose on the top"
"I don't like the dress on you it looks dated and the belted look is not good"
And the one that annoyed me the most...
"I would put a plain black suit over it. Too much going on for someone your size and shape"
How on earth are any of these responses relating to my original question?! I didn't ask if people liked it or not, as to be totally honest, I will wear what I like, not what other people like or want me to wear, and finally, what on earth is the last one?! It's a floral dress. How is that too much going on?! I'm not wearing hugely gaudy jewellery, it's not bright (and anyway if it was, I'd still wear it!) and "I should wear a black suit over the top" again, how on earth is that answering my question?!
I am not looking for any "Oh, the dress looks wonderful etc", this is not the point of the post. I guess the point of my post is: A) why did these people answer, if it has nothing to do with what i originally asked and wanted to get opinions on, and B) Why are people so negative?! I just don't understand it myself.
So, for these reasons, I won't be using Lookville again. Has anyone else had an invite and does anyone else regularly use it?
