Keeping up with the Joneses in Bloggerland

Don't get me wrong. I love reading my daily portion of blogs that I am subscribed to through Bloglovin'. Love to see OOTD's, hauls, new bags, clothes - basically to read up what has been put in all those lovely stores while I am slaving away in the office (okay exaggerated; while I am working like everyone else ;).

However, there are moments like these when I am feeling a bit fed up with Bloggerland.


Why?


Currently it is because of the infamous leather "Olivia Palermo" Zara tote bag - but could be anything that's "big" and overexposed in Bloggerland. You know which one I mean. I do not even need to show you the picture of it and I do not want to; you have probably come across it a zillion times if you're a blog follower or a blogger yourself. Google "Zara bag" and you will see an insane amount of bloggers wearing the same bag.

It seems like lately - more than ever - everyone (read: the majority of fashion bloggers) is wearing EXACTLY the same clothes, carrying EXACTLY the same bags, strutting on EXACTLY the same shoes... you get the point. Where is the diversity? For me, there are too many bloggers doing the same thing lately; blogging about buying and showing us exactly the same pieces that other bloggers also already have. The majority of the fashion blogging community seem to be preoccupied with trying to keep up with the Joneses. And that isn't very avant-garde nor Vogue now, is it?

Fortunately there are some bloggers that are still doing their own original thing, these are the bloggers that are actually making an impact on fashion in my eyes and I respect them for having more of a personal style. Just to name a few:

Ivania of Love Aesthetics
Veronica of The Fashion Fruit
Linsey of Pose

I am sorry if I offended anyone with this post - that was not my purpose at all - I still enjoy reading A LOT of blogs, just wanted to point out an issue that I think deserves attention.
What do you think about this?
