SUNDERED


 

(Photos by Inaya K.)

Sequin Bomber Jacket: Zara/ Blouse: Forever 21/ Skirt: Zara/ Belt: Vintage/ Shoes: Qupid/ Rings: Expression/ Bag: Love Moschino


In an attempt to make up for my lack of outfit posts this month, I have decided to fulfill your unhinged desire for my outfit posts by bombarding you with a plethora of photos from a particular outfit shoot. Hey, quality over quantity, right? If you've been following my blog (and if you haven't, I will find you and come for you), you'll know that I initiated the blog-picture taking activity in late summer and early fall because I knew that no amount of layering would cope with the severe Arctic winters that my city endures from October onwards. How right I was. We ended up spending more time on this particular session than desired because we made the grave mistake of taking pictures at noon and could not escape the wrath of harsh shadows caused by direct sunlight. Photography fail. But it resulted in an entire arsenal of pictures for my readers to indulge in (unless you find me repelling, then I'm sorry for your loss). 


I have to be honest, I didn't want to post this particular outfit on my blog just yet. It's one of my favorite outfits and it warrants a greater audience than the one my blog currently harbours. But it was relevant following the thread of discussions initiated by my previous outfit post. In my last post, I shamelessly admitted that I had bought trousers and photographed them for the purpose of the blog. I returned them shortly after, following a harsh comment from my sister, who compared me to a member of the Mariachi band. What followed was an outpour of comments and e-mails (ok it was like two e-mails, but that's more than my blog inbox has ever seen) from readers, indulging me in their dark secrets of falling prey to the BPR (Buy-Photograph-Return) syndrome, an activity that I have long suspected other fashion bloggers to engage in. To be honest, I wasn't surprised that other folks were also guilty of this crime (is it a crime?), but I was somewhat surprised by the honesty of everyone's admission. And it's not just the fashion blogging community who are engaging in such an activity, but I feel that it is the masses in general. 


I believe this syndrome was initiated by the rise of social networking, which gave the entire world an unprecedented access into our lives. We have long been using, without much realization, social media as a tool to attempt to conceal our true identities and to make our lives seemingly more glamorous than they appear. Have you ever seen people post pictures of, or write about the disparity in their lives? No one will ever write about, or post a picture of themselves crying, or depressed, or a picture of themselves with a black eye after they admitted their undying love of Justin Bieber.  And even if they do, it's usually done cryptically through the use of Rumi or spirituality quotes. Similarly, we tend to 'show off' on social media to impress others. Every time we buy a pair of Louboutins, or Chanel, we'll make sure that the entire world has knowledge about our latest indulgence. No one is ever going to post picture of the new shoes they got from Wal-Mart. 


Similarly, we may be reluctant to be photographed twice in the same outfit, especially since the said outfit has already found it's way into your Facebook Profile Pictures. I, for one, have been guilty of this, and I know several of my friends who refused to be photographed at a party because they had "already worn this outfit multiple times on Facbeook." Thus, we find our selves hunting for new outfits on a regular basis to escape the stigmatism that comes with wearing the same outfit too many times on a photo-sharing platform. And because the garment has already served it's purpose, what sense does it make to keep it, especially if we're mourning the current circumstances of our wallet? Cue BPR. 


But is this really wrong, even if everyone is secretly engaging in such an activity? Is such behaviour considered a crime, maybe not in the rhetorical sense, but in the moral sense?  I mean, if the sole purpose of a fashion blog is to show you how the blogger has styled their garments, is it really a big deal that they bought apparel from a store, wore it and photographed it in order to enlighten their readers on how to style certain items, and returned it because they may have not been able to keep them due to financial obligations? Isn't this what magazines do all the time? One of my favorite comments on my last post was a reader admitting to returning her dress that she wore to her prom after the event was over. To me, that makes sense. You're never going to fucking wear your prom dress, or your bridesmaid dress, or your wedding dress again. And if you do, people will judge you. Trust me, because we all do it. We're all a participants and victims in this vicious cycle. 


So yes, after three paragraphs of rambling, this post is relevant to the subject because I'm wearing a sequin bomber jacket from Zara that I BPR'd. From hence forward, I will shamelessly confess every time I engage in such an activity. Now don't get me wrong, I had fully intended to keep this work of sequinned art, but after spending an evening with eBay, I found a significantly cheaper version of the same jacket online. So there I was, digging through my garbage to find the tag that I had disposed of one week earlier. And here I am now, the same bomber jacket hanging in my closet in all it's feminine glory, whilst I laugh at all you suckers who paid $120 USD for this jacket in store.

  3. totally stunning photos and both compliments to you modelling as the talented Inaya K. It's ladylike gone fashionable. Indeed, quality over quantity and there's plenty of quantity today too.

    I've read your article and so glad you got so many honest feedback. The BWR strategia is probably similar as models for magazines and stylists returning them. I personally couldn't do that! And for the depressed photography: when I looked happiest on my earlier photos I was actually the most depressed (explains why I returned that horrible Givenchy Antigona as I hated the bag and the period I bought it). I'm still depressed, actually, and I dislike taking fashionpictures now because I finally feel more honest and cannot fake that smile anymore that I could before.
    (<-I should change this "too happy" avatar too). Fashionblogging made it worse for me, my earlier depression: more hairloss, etc...Perhaps if I feel better during Spring I'll take pictures again.
    As for now, I hope YOU are as happy as you look on your photos because you are both visually and intellectually inspiring :)

  52. You are so hilarious, love your writing! I totally get the photography fail... I'm thinking about taking a photography course. Before I even ooh and ahh over your outfit (which I'm doing) I feel like I need to say that you have to use that second pic of you smelling the flowers for something. It's so ethereal! I love it. Fyi, I don't know how many followers you have but I had to wade through 57 comments to get to the bottom, I would say that's pretty awesome. So my pledge to you is that I will promptly forget this outfit and when you see fit, just re-post and I promise to write an adoring comment then!

    I've never heard of BSR. It sounds inspired! Sometimes I see clothes that would look perfect styled with my items at home but I don't really well... Like them (for one Jeffrey cam bell style litas- I just don't like them on me). I feel completely put of the loop :) then again I'll find ir almost impossible to return anything I've bought as I'm not sure BSR is for me

  79. I totally know what you mean about that shadow...If I shoot in the afternoon when the sun is shining you can see my fiance's (hes my photographer) shadow leering over me and I get so frustrated and then I have a sour face on the rest of the shoot lol I also commiserate with shooting in the cold NYC is about to get super freezing and it makes it that much harder to be cute...

    I have never BPR'ed but its pretty clever but I am a sucker once I buy something I am attached to it and I worry that if I return it I will need it one day and regret bringing it back for all eternity...

    With that being said that jacket is to die for...goodness it is exquisite! and so are you! so beautiful!

  122. It's really interesting that you bring up BPR - I've actually never had this idea cross my mind and I now wonder how many people actually do this!

    Anyway, love the outfit and you hair looks great here! Love it.

  125. You look gorgeous and I think your jacket is just awesome. You know, I never thought much about BPR until my husband mentioned it to me, he asked me if bloggers do it. And I kind of just stood there.. and was like "oh... do they!?" I personally don't. Everything I buy, I wear on a regular basis. And it mostly comes down to the fact that I would be too lazy to go and return it. But I can see why others do this. To each their own! :)

  140. Great skirt. I am not one of the people who shop, photograph and then return the item, I know there is a pressure for new outfits or the latest trend on blogs, but I actually take a lot of pride in either making something, DIY something or just trying to re styling things in different ways. Don't fall prey into having to have something new every time you post something.

  141. A shame you couldn't keep the jacket, it is absolutely stunning!

    I don't BPR unless I'm posting requesting opinions on whether an item suits me and I should keep it. Just like I will bring home a bag of clothes, and try on everything in from of my husband to solicit his opinion without subjecting him to the time in the store. Last time I did that for my sister's critique, she bought a top from me that we decided looked better on her!

    I've also posted photos taken in the store, when I thought a particular "fail" was too good not to share.

    But my blog isn't a "glamour" blog... it's very real-life. I've posted the same outfit numerous times, I have no shame. I post my failures as well as successes.

  148. Wow, I had no idea of the underbelly of fashion blogs ; ) It's quite intriguing. I don't have a fashion blog myself, but I do enjoy reading them - probably exactly for the reason that's not what I do. (and i wear the same outfits all the time!) I do often make projects that I have no intention of using for the purpose of a blog posts, so it's probably along the same lines and I get it. No harm, no foul. In fact it's free advertising for the manufacturer so it's a win-win really. On another note, you hair is gorgeous, the photos look like a spread from vogue and I am happy to know you replaced that jacket because it is devine! xx

  154. Thanks for you New year wishes, now I will check where can I spend my new year so I can travel all around the world the rest of 2013, I'm sure you will do the same.
    The look is lovely specially love the bomber jacket, but I understand again is back on the shop, I have to try this BPR thing, I haven't yet but I'm diying to wear one of this feather skirts so I may take the pics and send the skirt back to the shop, the only problem is I know I would want to keep it so bad.
    Following you know, and waiting for you.
    kisses and have a great weekend

  160. Holy crap you get a shizzload of comments, girl! LOL! I hope you're not too tired to read mine. ;)

    Umm, let's see. So, after being in the fashion blogosphere for like a couple months (shorter? longer? I don't even remember when we found each other) you have stumbled upon a fashion blogging phenom. I mean, this is incredible. I guess it just never occurred to me that so many fashion bloggers do this, but now it makes PERFECT SENSE! And you're right, I mean, basically they are advertising the garment for free and returning it without a scratch. So everyone wins!

    And omg haha I thought I was the only paranoid nutjob who planned outfits for parties/outings based on what hasn't been photographed for Facebook yet. LOL! In fact, I've already planned my party outfits for the entire month of December around this fact. I detest having multiple photos of me from different events wearing the same outfit. It makes me feel poor and dated. Haha.

    Oh, and this outfit: in-effing-credible. That jacket is GLORIOUS. So cute. And the first photo of you is breathtaking (well, they all are, let's be real).

    Hope you have a great weekend, hon. xoxo

  161. Thank you so much for your comment and I just saw your past post with CELINE bag which I really want right now.

  164. The outfit is lovely, I'd totally go for that jacket and there is no need to feel that this outfit 'needs' a larger audience to fully make up so to speak for the greatness of it. Id post even what I think is my best so far despite of my small group of followers. Time and networking will help. Your post and beautiful, I doubt it'd be very long before you go far in blogging.

  165. Thank you very much for your visit on my blog and your lovely comment! You have an amazing style and I really like the pictures on your blog. But I'm totally against the whole "following-each-other" - it feels to me like buying readers. If you like my blog, please feel free to follow. If you keep commenting, I'll visit your blog back and may decide to follow you - in time.
