Four Honest Opinions on Popular Culture

honest opinions popular culture

1. I have zero interest in Fashion Week – London, Paris, New York, it doesn’t matter where, it just doesn’t float my boat.  I find it ridiculous and I cannot stand the snobbery surrounding it.  I absolutely love clothes, and I’m always admiring outfits, beauty and hairstyles but those curated for fashion week are ludicrous.  And then there’s the superiority attitude; that if you dislike it, you obviously don’t “get” it.

2. Another clothes-related one – just because something is designer, doesn’t mean it is better.  High Street trumps High End every time. I genuinely prefer what the high street has to offer and find the clothes to be much nicer; I think if money were no object I would still do my clothes shopping on the high street.

3. I cannot understand the obsession with Kylie Jenner, or the rest of the family to be honest.  I just don’t really understand the infatuation – they’re so false – and I’m tired of seeing them everywhere. And all the worshipping they receive – “QUEEN” and “GOALS” – eugh. I name Kylie specifically, because she’s had a ridiculous amount of work done, she looks nothing like she used to, and people are obsessed with how she looks now.  It’s odd.  And I’ve read a lot of bad press about the Kylie Lip Kits; poor quality, half empty upon arrival, extortionate postage costs; I feel bad for those wasting their money.

4. Strictly Come Dancing kicks the X Factor’s ass!  In my view the X Factor has run its course and has to resort to drama and staged ‘shocks’ for attention.  I also dislike how it’s all about the egotistical judges.  Strictly has class and it’s all about the performances, no nonsense!

    While I adore and love looking through the evolution of the fashion industry, I totally get your numbers 1 and 2. Fashion used to be an expression of yourself, now it just looks like glamour and drama and showing off skin. I don’t get some of it and I probably won’t until I die. Great post, Sarah, I enjoyed reading it. :) xx

    To be honest I don’t mind the Kardashians, they seem like smart business people but the media is so over saturated with them that it makes me dislike them. I couldn’t care less what one of them wore grocery shopping or posted on Instagram. As for Kylie’s products I’ve heard mixed reviews but they seem to be getting better as the company grows!

      I agree Katie! :) They’re definitely very business savvy, no doubt about that! It’s just the over-saturation as you say. That’s good if Kylie’s products are improving; at least they’re taking the complaints on board and taking action!

    Totally get some you sentiments, Sarah. Same here, not a big fan of high end products, particularly those Kylie lip kits bc basically, I wanna buy a lipstick, not their name! But I guess it’s all part of the business.

      Yeah exactly Da, and you pay more for the name! But as you say, it’s just part of the business.

    100% agree with high street over designer!
    I’ve walked round the likes of Harrods, Macy’s and Bloomingdales when in London & New York and can quite honestly say all of the expensive clothes were awful!!

    Good old high street wins every time for me.

      So glad you think so too! I know, anytime I’ve been in those expensive department stores the designer gear is dreadful looking! I can’t see what all the fuss is about! xo

    I wish I had the figure in order to be less picky with clothes! Some people can look good in a big bag – high street, designer… it really is pot luck with me… you look amazing in all your posts and are a shining light for high street at the cutting edge of super cute and sleek style!
