Honesty really is the best policy

When shopping or making decisions about a new hair cut or style, people always turn to their friends, family or other companions for their ‘honest opinion’. Some people do it, I do it all the time, and I value the opinions of the people around me in order to make the best decision possible.

 

When it comes to clothes, hairstyles, and even down to the smallest accessories, I always want a second opinion from someone who has a different opinion, or from someone who might have a different reason as to why I should or should not purchase something.

 

In these situations, I heavily rely on other people’s judgements. To me, Fashion and accessories are a make or break commitment, and at the moment, on the tight budget that this school attending, blog maintaining teenager is on, I can only afford (in all senses of the word) to make rational decisions when it comes to shopping.

 

This is why I was inspired to write this, because when it comes to giving an opinion to someone, never ever sugar coat the facts. If you’re friend really does look terrible in this horrible jumper, tell her! (Nicely of course) Maybe mention that it may not be the most flattering look, or point out another top that would suit her better. These opinions matter!

 

Your friend is trusting you with their appearance! Although people say that “Looks aren’t everything” and that “If you’re a good person, you can look good in everything” its not always true. Here is the harsh reality; People will look at you, and people will judge you. I know its wrong to do, and you may know it too, but that doesn’t stop people from doing it. There is a reason why kids get depressed from bullying and its because they don’t have anyone to steer them in the right direction. The main purpose of my writing this blog is to help people to make better decisions, or to be inspired by the looks that I post. It is to stimulate and motivate people to believe that they too have the potential to wear amazing clothes that they love and that make them feel good.

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” – Coco Chanel

I do not mean to sound harsh in any way, but I strongly believe that people have the right and the capabilities to look amazing all the time, no matter their flaws (or what they think are flaws)

So next time, when your friend, sister, brother, mother, anyone asks you for your honest opinion on something they may be wearing, help them out and tell them the truth, because if they were completely confident in what they were wearing, they wouldn’t have asked you in the first place. They asked for a reason and the best you can do for them is to genuinely and kindly tell them the truth.

Don’t get yourself or your friends into the Mean Girls situation…

P.S: This isn’t the green light to be the judgemental person yourself. If the person asking looks amaze, tell them that as well! Compliments can really make a person’s day!
