Reviving this thread because just today I've noticed both Merrick's Art and Alicia Tenise tagging all the brands in their photo in a corner so you can't make out all of them, but brand is tagged, and then obviously dropping in a link. sfun_deadhorse

I'm fairly certain that one of the tips these bloggers are given is to tag all the brands on Instagram. BUT to stack all the tags on top of each other and top it off with LiketkIt. So that in that case, they get exposure by brands seeing your tag and at the same time, they are able to hide the brands from their readers.

Before, they'd tag everything and show the tags. Then they'd just tag liketkIt. Now, they're doing both but stacking the tags.

Slimeballs.

You can see the tags if you go on iconosquare.

 

I've noticed more and more bloggers using shop style instead. I guess followers/ readers only want to know it but not buy it.

Has anyone noticed a lot of the the Like to Know It girls showcasing outfits while they are in the stores/fitting rooms?  Is this the new way fashion bloggers stay out of credit card debt is by not really buying the clothes and just posing in the mirrors at the local Nordstroms?  

 

For example: http://liketoknow.it/alyson_haley 

 

Has this always gone on and I am just now noticing?idontknow

If you're talking about the last picture in the multi colored maxi, that's not a dressing room that's where she held that blogger workshop with Katey of COF and Teacher Diva. But yes, several bloggers do "dressing room diaries" or whatever and link it.

Ah, okembarrassed.  I always thought it was strange when the Jcrew/Anthro bloggers would do this because I thought part of the allure was seeing the outfits paired with a nice background-otherwise you can just look at the website for what something looks like.

The only time dressing room pics are remotely helpful are if someone has a non-model sized body and/or gives construction and fit details.

 

In the dystopian fashion blogging future, the only ones who will survive are the ones who are truly aspirational, or truly relatable. Most of these boring bloggers posting useless selfies of clothes on their size 2 bods will be out of work in a few. As someone said upthread, bloggers are switching to shopstyle. This shows how competitive it is to be the last affiliate link that a reader clicks, plus who knows how many people buy. As a brand, I'd want conversion, not just clicks. chin 

 

Something really bad is happening in fashion as the middle drops out. You have contemporary/designer (usually $200+) where there's actually some budget for construction/fabric, and then you have mass (where fabric is $1 a yard/construction is super cheap.) But malls are struggling, and all mass is pretty terrible quality (I'm in fashion industry), so unless you go high-end, you're just going to be posting old navy and a handful of stores every damn day. That gets old after like, 2 months, and there's only so many choices. And most of these bloggers do not have the taste-level or readership for high-end. So you see the same 10-20 brands on about 1 million bloggers.

 

It's all a downward spiral unless you're the best of the best. I think Amber (maybe I read this in this thread a while back?) is switching to high-end because she realizes this. I don't blame her. It alienates like, 99% of her current bloggers, but ultimately, robin hooding it (catering to 1%) is your best bet if you're a smallish business. I've come to think it's actually terrible when I see celeb fashion lines in the lower price points (jessica simpson, ivanka trump, etc) stealing from the poor, yet again.

I am new here so may be this has already been discussednewhere – do you guys feel that the like-to-know ig account keeps on showing the same people over and over again?

 

do you think people are paying to be posted there?

 

A friend of mine had emailed one of those streetstyle accounts once to ask what is the criteria to get posted on their 400K+ account – and they said about $35 per picture. jaw-dropping

 

these girls must be shelling that to get featured – the returns must be good?

I agree that they do paste the same people over and over. I wonder how many bloggers they have singed up?

^^^ I had a (talented) friend pay $30 once to get on someone's instagram. Not likeittoknowit, but a diff one. It actually wasn't the worst investment for her- she got some new customers from it.

 

But just goes to show how "real" Instagram is.

Is the website majorly messed up for anyone else? Normally I just go to the webpage and go to photos I've liked and browse, but now that page has completely disappeared? Anyone else notice this?

They did an app update sometime last week and it has been having tons of problems not working properly, not sending images, sending the unedited image instead of teh edited one, etc.
