My mom always told me “If you have nothing nice to say, then don’t say anything.” Well sorry mom, today is the day I bash the fashion magazine you raised me on. While surfing Vogue’s website, I realized that whoever is in charge of the “Street Chic” section must be scrounging for fashionable city slickers. I know that Vogue has more important things to worry about, but why on earth would the kings and queens of the fashion industry allow websites like The Sartorialist and Face Hunter run circles around them when it comes to scoping out well done street fashion? Rumor has it that The Sartorialist is in charge of Vogue’s “Street Chic,” but if that is the case, he obviously gave Vogue all of the reject shots. Feast your eyes on fashion that is anything but “heroic”:

I guess this girl threw on everything white in her closet...must have been the day before Labor Day.

Frumpy plaid is chic? I saw her dad wear that shirt yesterday.

Vogue...why would you advocate people who wear high-waisted jeans the WRONG way? She looks like she's going to pick up the kids at soccer, or drop them off at the pool. Take your pick.

Congratulations! You look like every other tourist who visits New York City in the fall!

Wait. So you're telling me that if I wear a raincoat and leggings I'll make an appearance on Vogue.com? Game on!

A t-shirt. A pair of jeans. Some Converse. How is this "Street Chic" worthy?

I can hear "Dueling Banjos" in the background. Yuck.

 

Sorry Vogue…please don’t let this bash jeopardize my internship application come next fall…please.
