Rockstuds Replaced With Slow Stroll Boots

Evidently Rockstuds are out, and Stuart Weitzman Highland boots are in, at least for this Fashion Week. Businesslady fashion expert entrepreneurs are stomping around NYC in these comfy looking leg prisons.

boots

Because nothing says ‘take me seriously in business! ask me about my master’s degree!’ like suede thigh high heeled boots and a muppet coat in 7 degree weather.

Pinterest Will Be Removing Your RStyle Links

New York Fashion Week continues with some well timed news – Pinterest will be removing those precious rstyle affiliate links from pins, preventing bloggers from making click money through affiliate linking on Pinterest.

Starting today, we’ll automatically remove all affiliate links, redirects, and trackers on Pins.

We’ve been automatically removing most of these links for a few years but, until now, we made exceptions for rewardStyle…all your past Pins will show up normally and still be clickable. They just won’t include the affiliate tracker…

That sound you hear is 500 bloggers posing outside Milk Studios screaming “Noooooooooooooo”.

We Wore What Obviously Needs To Be At Fashion Week

Danielle, the photoshop addicted fashion blogger behind We Wore What, did an interview in which she detailed why her attendance at New York Fashion Week is totally valid.

Apparently she goes in order to “have a presence there and be shot by street style photographers” and that’s about it. She also claims her attendance is “really organic” because she goes to shows “if someone wants to dress me and pay me to be there”.

Further justifying filling a seat at the shows, she says “I don’t really do runway photos on my blog”, making sure to add that she sits front row. She finally gets to her real reason for taking up space: it’s “great exposure for me and when you get put on those websites like Vogue, street style, and all that stuff”.

Meanwhile, preg as hell Pink Peonies is teetering around Manhattan in rubber leggings. Cuppy just pushed out a person the other day, so she’s evidently skipping the shows this season. Messica has seemingly given up any pretense of being relevant to fashunland (she’s about 2 baby posts away from being a mommy blogger), and doesn’t appear to be acknowledging FW at all. Amberlamps of RewardStyle was bragging about being in the WSJ as she headed off to the RewardStyle dinner to drink mescal. And good ole Sara Zucker keeps clinging to tumblr fashion week like it’s 2011.

Don’t worry, I won’t let you miss all the grams of Rockstuds and Hunters and Starbucks cups and ugly impractical handbags sitting on filthy curb snow. I’ll be bringing you Fashion Week updates live from my couch all week!

Pharm Chemicals Are Bad Unless They Pay You To Like Them

Denise, has six kids and invites you to ‘count ‘em’, wants you to stop hating anti-vaxxers because their logic is sound. She vaccinated her first two kids, but they had issues – and she just couldn’t bring herself to shove awful things into the rest of her kids.

Things started to shift once I gave birth to my third child. As I snuggled my brand new little boy in my arms, the thought of subjecting his healthy body to an onslaught of foreign antibodies and questionable chemicals brought tears to my eyes.

Of course those questionable chemicals are more than welcome when Denise is offered a sponsored post. Trying to ride the fence between maintaining her status as earth mama and getting those dolla dolla billz, Denise says:

I’m the type of mama who likes to avoid the doctor’s office at much as possible, and we treat most of our colds and flu symptoms with home remedies — eucalyptus rubs, herbs, homeopathic meds, a vaporizer, essential oils and chicken soup. If my children are really uncomfortable, I know I can trust Tylenol® to help make them feel better.

Oh, ok. Unvaccinated children don’t get sick because Mama doesn’t put evil pharmaceutical chemicals in their bodies. But if they get sick, Mama is happy to put evil pharmaceutical chemicals in their bodies. Especially if they are compensated for doing so.

Logic!

2015 GOMI Awards – It’s Jenna’s Year!

wtfaward

What a glorious year it was for Jenna Cole. She posted pictures of herself in her bra. She made omgsomuchmoney. And her solo parenting finally ended. But surely her greatest moment is being crowned with a Lifetime Failchievement Award. She also mightily swept the Biggest WTF category with Vibratorgate.

Kelle Hampton of ETST won for Biggest Decline, Most Overexposed Children, and Most Insane Fangirling. I’m sure orange Poopasicle is planning a party right now.

Ghost Bev won Best Flounce, though Young House Love came in a close second. Cecily Kellogg won for Worst Photoshopping which surprises no one. Taralynn’s coffee shop fundraiser earned her an award as well.

Dooce blew up the Most Irrelevant category but she will surely continue blogging because that’s what #brave people do. Speaking of #brave, that beat to death word took home an award for Most Overused Phrase.

And finally, “Sarah Ate Two Tacos But I Only Ate One” was your favorite GOMI username. Hey, who doesn’t love tacos, right?

You can check out the voting page here, and thanks to everyone who participated! And a big congrats to the ‘winners’! Gold stars for all of you.
