Oxford Dictionary declared the word of 2013, “selfie.”
As of posting this, there are 57.6 MILLION images tagged #selfie on Instagram. Whoa. That's a lot of selfies.
As fashion bloggers, we all know about selfies. They often populate our Instagram feeds, either on our own, or on the bloggers we follow. The selfie culture has infiltrated not just fashion bloggers, but to the holiest of the holy.. Pope Francis to that selfie I wish I could un-see of Gerlado Rivera. (Someone should have warned me!)
We all have our reasons for taking selfies. Showing off a new haircut, or a new lipstick. To document a day out with friends. To update our social media icon. Some of us may even like to shoot selfies to share our own beauty with the world! Yes! Methinks so!
But whatever your own reason is for taking selfies… what about when you see selfies of OTHER people? Do you love it? Do you roll your eyes? Is lurking around at selfies a guilty pleasure? Do you just scroll to the next ‘gram?
Let us know in the poll… maybe seeing how others feel about selfies will change your attitude. Maybe if you loved doing them, maybe you will do less. Or maybe if you hated doing them, you will give them a try. Either way, it's food for thought!
