Style blogs and freebies

Is it just me or does anyone else get annoyed with the amount of freebies style bloggers get. For example, one blogger was berating the fact she had nothing to wear to an event, unsurprisingly she was then contacted by a company who gifted her a dress. I am sure this was not the bloggers intention but I am annoyed at seeing blogs I have previously enjoyed turn into a constant advert. It just takes the reality out of it.

That sounds so cool Amber. Getting on board with all things Brazilian is a good commercial decision I imagine. Will go have a look.

<isn't there something going on there soon>

Cambs I am still carrying the mental scars of my first foray into Next all those years ago. In the first directory I ordered a Peau De Soie style peach jacket that both Yasmin's (Ghauri and Le Bon) were modelling.

On them it looked languidly Zelda. On me? Not so much. I looked like a fifth rate Tory councillor at party conference in it.

Especially as a sportswear brand! I do love the way they've styled it with the crop top, shorts and jacket all together but I don't have the body of a Brazilian model so I'll stick with this for now!!

I think bombers are really tricky. I tried a really cool faux croc one on in TS the other day, but I had to wear an 8 to make it really fitted in order for it to look good, otherwise they can be bulky.

You might not have the six feet but you've got a rocking bod there Amber and there's always the beach/beach front. Those looks work well on holiday I think- the bright light and colours in hotter countries show it off well.

I like the idea of a bomber jacket but not one that make me look like my Mum smile

I just read a blog post extolling the benefits of westfield. It was like a long winded advert. Wow.
amber what is your blog? Ive scrolled through the thread but cant seem to see it

I haven't seen such a post, but Westfield is awesome. Most efficient, comfortable way to shop in real life. Of course, it has no soul. Sometimes, though, I just want to cover a lot of ground, while staying warm and dry and having access to a bathroom [nanna emoticon]

they sent her a voucher to spend there so of course it was glowing. I'm sure she normally loves it just as much though wink
