The Sartorialist Is Familiar With Indian Culture

Actually just a street sweeper.

Actually just a street sweeper.

Scott Schuman, the shortorialist, is living it up since his split with Garance. He’s currently traveling the world, and is sharing photos from India. Everything was buttkissing and fawning until he posted this photo, labeling the woman pictured an ‘untouchable’.

The response was immediate and full of ‘wait, wut?’ Commenters explained to him that the woman was simply a street sweeper, and basically called him an asshamper for even using the word.

Why do you invent “tragic concepts” where none exist ? If you saw her as an untouchable its in your eyes and cunning controversial mind . You are the worst myopic traveller ever and to think we Indians idolised you, lol. You are so disappointing!!!

Scott responded that he ‘didn’t just make it up. I was told that by local people I was with while shooting’ with commenters responding that ‘the term was banned and is offensive, the fact that you don’t share their culture and believes wouldn’t allow you to understand the sensitivity of the term’. Another commenter called it ‘pure discrimination’ and said ‘Didn’t know we were back in the 1700′s’.

While it’s conceivable Scott didn’t know the term would be so offensive, he has decided to dig in and defend the use of the word rather than apologize and change the caption.

‘Natalie Off Duty’ Arrested

You better work.

Natalie Suarez, the off duty model blogger behind “Natalie Off Duty“, was arrested for beating up her boyfriend, a fashion designer I’ve never heard of called Jordan Adoni.

Apparently they got into a cartoonish sounding hair pulling match in their swanky Manhattan pad (why the Post felt the need to point out their ridonkadonk living quarters is beyond me, but they also spent a lot of time emphasizing how tall and thin she is, so whatever). Natalie was then arrested for “misdemeanor assault and aggravated harassment” and  released without bail.

Does anyone else get a publicity stunt vibe from this?

What I Wore Back At Home After Surgery

messica

Jessica Quirk, used to have a successful style blog, went into the hospital a week ago suffering from mastitis. The situation apparently turned serious a few days later.

UPDATE: I just got out of surgery to have an abscess drained that formed after the antibiotics caused the infection to coalesce. In pain but hopefully will be better soon.

Messica has now left the hospital and is recovering at home.

Effortless Anthropologie Wants RewardStyle To Fix This

Roxy Turtle, runs an Anthro fansite, seems to be having an issue with RewardStyle. Apparently she’s been having having tracking issues with her affiliate links – and she claims that while RewardStyle was initially helpful they have not only closed her complaint, they became intimidating when she responded she would not let this drop.

Unfortunately, the relationship with RewardStyle seems to be taking a nosedive…I’ve been getting emails from a RewardStyle Vice President that feel threatening. Retaliatory.

Saying “all I want is to understand what happened and get a promise that it won’t happen again”, Roxy went into Mistreated Little Person Versus The Big Bad Corporation mode.

I feel scared and unsure what to do…They have the team and resources at their disposal. They are a huge company and they seem to be putting their efforts into threatening me. I just don’t get it…I have been crying for most of the afternoon…I’m one tiny person and RewardStyle a huge company. It feels so scary to me that they might come after me, retaliate. I feel scared.

She goes on to say she feels RStyle is gearing up to drop her because she “asked too many questions”, but that isn’t what she wants at all. After going on and on about how scared and upset she is, and how she feels ‘threatened’ by RStyle, Roxy says she still wants to work with the company.

Ideally, at this point what I want is what I mentioned above: an in-depth explanation of what happened, an agreement on how to prevent this in the future, and a promise that the relationship will go back to normal with no retaliation.

I really don’t get all the blogger kowtowing to RewardStyle. Are they just the only affiliate company out there or something? I just don’t understand why Roxy would want to continue working with a company that treats her in the manner she’s claiming. Surely RStyle isn’t the only name in the game. Get out and find another affiliate company!

Hey Natalie Jean Knows How To Do Minimalism

Natalie Holbrook, she’s from Brooklyn, has been trying to make a minimalist ‘capsule’ wardrobe thing happen. She apparently thinks a pared down wardrobe collection will…honestly I’m not sure why she’s doing it, other than maybe an excuse to shove some rstyle links up our noses.

But don’t you dare think for one second that it should be easy for a stay at home wife married to a six figure salary of a man to figure out which items should be included in her amazing minimalist hanging-on-display collection.

My problem isn’t in simplifying a look, it’s in simplifying my options. I like this red plaid shirt, but I also like this red plaid shirt! And which one will I want to wear the most? And what would that preference that even say about a person?

Her final list of choices adds up to almost $5,000 and includes a $175 striped tee and a $250 red plaid shirt, which should pair nicely with the free extra pair of boots she received the other day. Because heaven knows you need at least 10 pairs of black boots.

Don’t even get me started on the boots. I love these black boots, but I also love these black boots, and I don’t need both but they’re just sooo different though!

Bored rich white ladies – they’re just like us!
