Dress as a skirt: H&M
Boots: Frye Carson Pull-on
I saw a picture from this post by Swank & Dapper on Pinterest and was so excited that I had the EXACT SAME CARDIGAN. So of course, I copied the outfit, but instead of her black pants I wore my striped dress as a skirt. I have a striped pencil skirt from The Limited but it's just a tad too big and too long, and I haven't gotten around to altering it yet. To fill my temporary striped skirt void, I realized that I could just wear my striped dress as a skirt, and although it's just a bit shorter and tighter than what I'm comfortable with, the long cardigan and tights helped make it slightly more modest.
Speaking of copying, there has been some talk around the webs about a certain petite blogger who has been copying another blogger for years, and recently was called out for her behavior on twitter (don't know what I'm talking about? Check this out). The copycat blogger is playing a victim and claiming that others are harassing her and her supporters are calling it bullying. Well is it bullying?
I think if it was one instance where she copied, it would be no big deal, maybe even a few instances it would be fine, because I know that it's easy to copy "styles" when we all shop at the same mall stores, and no one can claim that they thought of wearing a certain outfit combination first when someone else in the world has probably already done it. But this copycat blogger in question has been copying the original blogger for YEARS. Her blog name, blog headers, outfits, poses, content, and then contacting her sponsors and readers, hunting down hard-to-find items the other blogger has on eBay while lying about the origins, all while claiming she doesn't read the original blog anymore. The original blogger has emailed her in private numerous times over the years but the copycat has not changed, and yet continues to copy. So when the original blogger turns to calling out the copycat on twitter and multiple people agree, is it called bullying? I would think the original blogger is the victim, not the copycat.
