In The Fashionista's Closet: A Nightmare on Facebook

 I'm obsessed with stripes. Like, for reals. If I see striped anything, I want it.

 Like this sweater. Which reminds me of Freddy Krueger. He was a killer but no one ever said that he wasn't stylish.

 I am taking a break from Facebook. Because I wanted to post the following status update:

"There is such a thing as oversharing. I don't want to know that you are on antidepressants and I haven't spoken to you since high school. That's a little bit too much information for me since I can't remember what you even looked like in high school."

Not to mention the chick who posted photos of her and her husband in bed and he looked like he was asleep and she was looking into the camera! You can't just enjoy being with your boo, we gotta put it on Facebook?  

I mean, who is that really for? The "extra-ness"?

Or the people who air their dirty laundry on Facebook. I don't want to know that you and your man are fighting because you found out he was not-so-secretly seeing someone else. But the next week you post "(tagged person's name) is the love of my life. I love you, Binky!" That's what your girlfriends are supposed to be for. Unless you don't have any "in real life" friends. So then that is another problem you might need to address.

Just not on Facebook...

Bracelets: Forever 21
Sweater: Zara
Skirt: Asos
Boots: Juicy Couture

 I just want to see a couple pics, poke a lil fun and log off. Is that too much to ask?

That sweater is great and it is Freddy Kreuger-ish, but you made it fly. Love pairing it with Blue. I have been addicted to stripes lately too.

The worst thing I've ever seen on FB...a non-friend from HS said, "My husband surprised me by coming home last night for our anniversary. After we enjoyed 45 minutes of coitus..." *drops laptop* SERIOUSLY!!

Juanette said...

@Kim WHHHHHHAAAAAAAA?!?!?!?!?!?! OMG, and I thought that I had seen it all! That is grounds for immediate Unfriending, lol!

*picks a fight*

"WHY COME" you holding back? What about the wife/girlfriend who LIVES with their man but posts and comments on each other's wall all day?

Boyfriend's Post: Man, today was a tough day!
Girlfriend's comment: Aww baby, when you get home, I'm gonna make it all better.

Boyfriend replies: ha ha ha
Girlfriend replies: Ha ha ha. I'm cooking your dinner right now. Hey can you go to the store and pick up some eggs? I forgot I need that to make your favorite deviled eggs that you love so much.

Tell it all Juanette...Tell it all!

I adore the Freddy Kruger sweater...I'm gonna take the hubby's sweater and add some elbow patches to it! Don't say I won't...because you know I will! LOL

Tima said...

I truly adore your blog! I am obsessed with stripes too mainly black and white, but last summer I purchased a striped pink and blue dress. Thanks for sharing your wonderful style.

So I LAUGHED OUT LOUD! When I read this. I use to be quilty of oversharing on facebook, but now I know better. This was great. You look great as always. LOVE the sweater.

Regina said...

I follow you blog and must say you are very stylish. I also took a break from fb when I saw a teenager posting pictures of her deceased newborn in the hospital...that was too much!

Huda said...

Love the Zara sweater.

On facebook, we live in a society that knows no boundaries and respect for ones private life, let along that of others. So, it doesn't surprise me that some ppl need social networking etiquette 101. I've read and seen so many offensive and bizarre status updates, I just delete the person and if I know them well, drop a private note on why they should not be sharing such info on a public forum, which FB is.
