Hey guys, this post took a while to put to together as I came back home for the weekend to babysit my niece. The internet is so slow in the countryside, I edited these whilst on the train home on Thursday. Anyway I would like to discuss some issues I am having with Lookbook if any of you use it as much as I do sometimes you start to become dependent on it. If your look doesn’t receive much hype or comments you start to question whether your look/style is good enough. I came to a conclusion that there seems to be a circle in which only the popular users get enough exposure and shared via LB Twitter and Facebook account. Its boring to see the same faces and style on the hot page. I know this is a bit of a rant but its seriously been diminishing my confidence lately. I used to reach quite a lot of hype this time last year and now its all become mundane to the point where I ask myself is it really worth continuing my account on there. I just wanted to see if anyone else felt this way. If you would like to continue on this topic you can mail me, or tweet me.

I’ve always been interested in the ‘what we don’t see‘ or know about the media. I often feel they censor what is and whats not to be shown. Its as if no matter how hard we work in the blogosphere you will never really get noticed unless you fit into a certain stereotype of category. Even in the popular fashion magazines they never seem to interest me. However I have found comfort over on Chictopia, you see different types of styles, even amounts of exposure to new and old users, everyone has a voice and it seems all equal. I sometimes think, maybe there is a reason why Lookbook isn’t being so kind to me, to prove that I should focus more on my blog followers and reply to each of your comments. That is just what I plan on continuing with. Some of you may have noticed the other day I went on a huge blogging spree and followed most of you back! 

Anyway back to the outfit, its just a quick put together of a few pieces I got over 1/2 years ago. The Bibbed Blouse is from Urban Outfitters, its one of my favourites, you can wear it with Leggings or tuck it into a Skirt. I’m always on the hunt for Edwardian School Girl type Blouses. Miss Selfridge is one of the high street shops I always check for Victorian or Edwardian styled Blouses. The Cardigan is one of my favourites and is from River Island in a sale last October. My Dad bought me new boots from New Look in a sort of a Chelsea Style with a heel I just love them so much. The cross necklace is part of a new collection over at New Look and the earrings are from Accessorize.

Lots of love,

Charlotte x

    I agree with you totally – I'd been thinking the same kind of thing. There's a very typical 'blogger' look and way of posing that seems to be by far the most popular! I've only just discovered your blog and I love your style and the way you write – if you're focusing more on your blog now then I can definitely see you becoming verryyyy popular! This outfit is gorgeous and so are you:) keep blogging! followed you on bloglovin and I'd love if you could check out my blog too:)lily
