A surprising number of social networking sites are now dedicated to street fashion and personal style. They allow those obsessed with fashion to post an outfit, review another’s and generally be inspired by street fashion all over the world. The only way my guy friend was able to relate to my particular obsession, Chictopia.com was to come up with the closest equivalent of a dudetopia.com that he could. He likens the sites to the car-crazed sites where guys swoon over each other’s customized cars. Guys inspire each other with rims, suspension and paint jobs while girls inspire one another with shoes, accessories and color matches…er at least that’s how he was able to understand things.
Ok this he gets. Major relief. If only I could get him to participate with my postings by serving as my fashion photographer. The couple times, I’ve swallowed my pride and risked forever being seen as some vain poser, he begrudgingly obliged only after making a couple snide remarks, ultimately making me regret the proposition. I’ve since bought a tripod. Goodbye to trying to transform a boyfriend into a personal photographer and hello stealthy solitary photo shoots!
