The Out of Touch Fashion Industry (and my white dress picks for under $40)

Vogue’s recent article claims to have 25 dresses AT EVERY PRICE, yet nothing featured is under $75, which is actually a lot of money to spend on a summer dress for normal people. Thank you, next.

I love Vogue…I really do…and I love the fashion industry. Since I started my business I’ve focused on clients in the fashion and I wouldn’t have it any other way. But, sometimes, they can be a little out of touch with the every day guy and gal. Guess what…I don’t have an extra $400 to splurge on an impulse buy just because you tell me “every girl needs a white dress for Summer…” I’d totally spend some money on something maybe in the $50 range, though.

Here’s my issue with the latest Vogue.com article titled The 25 Best White Dresses for Summer - Here’s 25 at Every Price……

Every price should mean EVERY PRICE. Not ONE dress they feature is under $75. You couldn’t find something at H&M or Zara??? Or even Forever 21? That place is like a shit storm of cheap white dresses. WTF Vogue. It’s not realistic and it’s what pisses me off about fashion sometimes. And it happens ALL THE TIME. How many times have you opened Vogue, or Vanity Fair or whatever mag you’re into and seen nothing but high dollar items featured? I get it - they have advertisers they’re trying to please. But it gets to be too much sometimes. Especially when your DirecTV bill and your cell phone bill and your electricity bill were all debited from your account on the exact same day…at the exact same hour. BOOM. Broke. Just like that. Why yes, Vogue, I do have an extra $500 for that Khaite Delphine smocked pleated cotton dress you just told me I should buy. Thanks.

If you’re in the same boat as I am, here’s a couple affordable white summer dresses that you should totally skip this week’s Chipotle for.
