To some people, being a fashion editor might seem cool, but to my friends, it’s an excuse to constantly text me for fashion advice, to treat my closet like it’s their own, and, of course, to make fun of me for the crazy things I wear and the fact that I treat my shoes as my own flesh and blood. Each and every one of my friends is a true character in their own right, and today, you’ll get a small glimpse of that as I share with you real-time screenshots of recent conversations I’ve had with them concerning their most recent fashion crises. You’d think I’d frequently turn to them for story ideas considering their sartorial qualms are so oddly specific, but I rarely do. But did conjuring up this story remind me of what a great resource my besties are? It most certainly did.
Usually, I text my friends links to things to buy, general solutions to their random shopping questions, and so on and so forth, but this time around, I felt like really loving on them via this story. Below, you will see our conversations hashing out what’s been bothering each and every one of them on the fashion front, my solutions to their issues, and the pieces I am suggesting they buy to help alleviate the crisis. From never having a versatile jacket to wear to wanting to dress like Hailey Bieber, I have a feeling that most of the fashion qualms below are ones you too have experienced, so sit back, relax, and enjoy getting to know my friends in the oddest way possible. Isn’t the internet great?
