Your Fashion Goddesses,

If you have seen likes go down and finding it hard to keep new followers, it may be a ploy by Instagram to make more money.

Facebook is a publically traded company and its main focus is to make money. So if people can gain followers without spending money then what so you do? Here are all the tricks Instagram is pulling.

BLOCKING

If you do happen to get alot of comments on a post or engagement then Instagram will block you. It happened to me. The new algorithm assumes that any rapid engagement on any account means that you are using a bot and will automatically block you.

You will also get blocked if you behave like a bot which means randomly liking other people’s post you don’t follow, excessive commenting or using another app to post pictures.

The fix: Like post of your shadow followers and only comment on your followers or those you are following. Follow people you would like to collab or those with more followers.

Losing followers

Okay, so you gained 8 followers one day and now you are back to the same number. What happened?

The Fix: People follow by post so make sure you have a specific subject and stick to it. Also do the above fix while posting at least 3 times a day within your aesthetic.

Don’t have one? Get one or you will notice the see-saw follower effect plus get alot of shadow followers.

Hashtags

Using all 25 hashtags will get your post shadow blocked which is worst then being actually blocked because you will not be informed.

The Fix: It is recommended you use 5 to 10 hashtags and target them! 5 to image and 5 to subject.

Blocked Hashtags

How do you know you are using blocked hashtag? You don’t. The last time I checked #beautyblogger is now a blocked hashtag meaning you won’t get any engagement on a post with the blocked hashtag.

The Fix: Check the numbers when using a hashtag and make sure it is less then 1 million. Any hashtag with more then 1 million post won’t get you seen any way.

Noticed anything strange with your Instagram account? #tfgig and we will add it to this post.

Happy Monday!💋

You can’t go wrong with these Summer staples; a graphic tee and tulle skirt can be appropriate for any occasion and the combo possibilities are endless!

By Eva E.

Hello Readers,

I decided to share with you all my favorite lewk that never fails to get me compliments and assures I always look out together no matter the occasion. I choose three styles I personally wear: Goth, Punk and Boho.. So weather your attending a garden party or going out to dinner these Looks will always work and you can change up the shirt and tee to fit your taste! Pro tips: Roll your Tees instead of folding them so they don’t get wrinkled when storing them. Tulle skirts that get wrinkled can be lightly steamed to get the wrinkles out!

Unpredictable weather may get you down but the fashion industry is capitalizing on it.

Knitwear was once a season affair starting in September and ending in February while fading to a bright cropped number but that has changed.

I walked into Zara and saw those cropped sweaters on sale til the middle of April and I am not the only one noticing it.

The Telegraph wrote back in 2017:

Did you pack away your summer clothes and reinstate your winter warmers come the end of September? Nope, me neither.

I think I unpacked my winter wardrobe 6 times this year and still have sweaters in the wash. Here brings me to the point of this article. It is time to build a seasonless wardrobe. We have 3 items that we believe will take you from hot to cold (today’s low is 58, high 73) in one shot.

The turtleneck

I was surprised to see Marie Claire toting the turleneck as Spring wear even though I just wore one a couple of days ago. If the weather won’t peak pass 75, it’s a good option.

The Cardigan

The cardigan was said to have return about 3 years ago but for me and most of uppercrust society, they never went out of style.

Add this item to your bag for hot days (80s) and cooler nights (60s).

Light Cropped sweater

These sweaters have replaced the sweater vest and come with or without sleeves.

Look for fun prints to add a pop of color to your wardrobe.

The future does seem unisex when you look at these seasonless fashion concepts.

Happy Friyay!

First we saved then we splurged but will the economy bounce back?

By Yvette E

The death toll of retail stores is still rising with Dress Barn closing all their stores this year. The return of Wetseal shows a changing landscape as they join BeBe has an online only retailer.

And the tariff taxes making everything so expensive, eating seems a luxury. But I woke up yesterday on a shoe mission and found every end of season (spring never happened but ok) sale packed.

Is it the fear of the rising price of shoes (everyone had a pair) or the possible Mexican tariffs on the horizon?

So we ask our readers, what got you to the sales yesterday?

Happy Wednesday!💋

Fenty by LMVH lands on the web tomorrow while H&M soft launch thier own collaboration.

By Yvette E

Fenty

Are you ready for Fenty, the first brand launched by LMVH since 1987 and the only brand to be headed by an influencer goes on sale via a pop up today in Paris but it will be online (May 28). Paris Vogue has given it rave reviews. The pieces we covet: the oversived raw denim jackets.

The collection is said to be one of cheapest lines of LMVH with prices starting in the hundreds.

Giambattista Valli x H&M

Known for his fluffy tulle dress in candy colors, most news outlets have liken the collection for prom goers everywhere. I think everyone who wants a little lace and tulle in thier life will come.

Prices range from $18 to $649 with a soft launch of clothing and accessories first on May 25.

We love the pearl studded loafers which seem delightfully unisex.

Other collaborations this month was Vineyards x Target with vocation vibe for menswear.

Happy Friyay!💋

Hello again readers,

We had so much fun with men so next up for our Disney bound series I decided to do a look for my fellow curvy and lovely readers! I chose the dastardly and fierce Sea Witch Ursula from The Little Mermaid! I decided to choose a more dressy as well as alternative look as I have only seen Ursula done casual and basic. I had to go with a more fierce look to pay homage to one of my fave villians..enjoy!

Your Fashion Goddess,

These fashion trends will have you coupling and twinning with your boyfriend or male friends this spring.

By Yvette E

Tie dye

It is back and on trend forbeveryone🤗. This time around it gets a more comaflouge vide with heavy strikes and plenty of white space. This treatment lends a look of brush strokes.

Retro flowers

That 70’s retro floral style is back this spring. Think bright shades on a dark background.

Stripes

Even though not in the same direction, this trend gets a nod because of it’s similarities to each other while still looking different. While men have 1 hue mixed with a white background, women have thicker blocks of color.

As always if you try these looks, tag us on your image to be featured on our Instagram page!!

Happy Easter!!💋🐰🐇

Companies trust their CEOs too much, having access to every point of the business but when is it too much?

The retail and fashion industry have been in shambles since 2000 reared its head and millenials became the most dominant shoppers.

To be fair, the problems are not with the changing consumer, its with the companies themselves.

Roberto Cavalli and Charolette Russe both closed this weekend but Roberto Cavalli was the biggest surprise because it was unexpected.

Roberto Cavalli’s rash decision to close all US stores and give only a week’s paycheck to his 93 employees says he knew little about what was happening in his own company and in fact relied on another to pull profit where he was just the face and designer (did he or was the clothes manufactured?).

And the corporate branch knew March 22 while employees were taken by surprise and escorted out by security!!

This is problem facing the fashion industry, too many collections based on too many trends…Do you need those 7 collections a year..or just 1 collection that spands all 2 seasons (basically cold and hot).

So why did he fail? Why is Gucci and Fendi the only Italian brands not fazed?

Cavalli only owns 10% of his namesake brand meaning he had little say in its direction. In 2015, he sold 90% to a private equity firm a mistake we see often…Toys R Us, Radio Shack and so many companies are using them as investors but as soon as the profit sinks, they are quick to file for bankruptcy.

Secondly, Cavalli was no longer designing…he resigned 4 years ago…and Peter Dunas took over for 19 months and then Paul Surridge…who resigned a week before the brand collapsed.

How could you sell your namesake brand and then someone else design for it? No wonder the pieces became so gaudy and unoriginal.

If you have any more info on this saga, comment below…

Happy April’s Fool’s day 💋

Sometimes trying to embrace your heritage when living in another culture can have disastrous consequences. This designer is about to show us why.By Yvette EThe colors were bold with hues of goldenrod, fuchsia, turquoise and rich blues. The use of textured fabric also gave a quilt vibe but those were the only highlights of a boxy collection with too many Asian elements.For men, the designer did think “out of the box” but ot seems that some elements should have been left behind.

The boxy suits would have worked without the unnecessary embellishments. The trim on the pant leg seems added as an afterthought.

The Chinese luck badges seem out of place. This collection makes us think the “less is more” mantra of a normcorist may have some truth.

Then we have the Harajuku badges of Japanese fame where there should be pockets.I want that hat though.For women, each piece can be worn separately better than together where it becomes more like a costume then clothes.

The Harajuku badges are misplaces on the chest bringing attention to the an area most women don’t want men to focus on.The pant skirt combo is a great concept and we don’t mind the Chinese embroidery fabric but the skirt with fringe, and a very floral (India) motif is overwhelming.

I liked the designer’s smile but he needs to realize that being Asian Canadian means that you are a part of two worlds and nothing is wrong; pick an identity and your designs will be a true representation of yourself.

Happy Friyay! 💋
