Have you ever experienced being judge because of your style?

Me? I experienced a hundred times (very hard to count).

Just only last weekend, I was wearing this DIY-cropped top (picture above) and my weekend market shorts (but hey it's from UNIQLO!) and my kicks - went to SM Aura for my weekend shopping for groceries, then I decided to drop-by at the SM Aura's beauty store. I was checking some new lippies to add on my collection, I even ended up swatch-ing this matte-lipstick from Revlon counter, when the Revlon lady approached me and without hesitation, staring at me from head-to-toe-then-back-with-matching-eyebrow-raise-kinda-bitchy-look and says:


 "Are you buying??? You seems you can't afford."

I wasn't in the mood to be feel bitchy..

But this Revon girl seems ohh nope ... she is judging me.

Just because I was wearing a cropped top and a poor lady's shorts???

I won't allow her to ruin my day, so I just smiled and walk-out... making sure she sees me going to the Maybelline counter and bought the latest lipstick full collection.

I'm not saying I don't judge people.

Because I do. I don't exclude myself just because I'm writing this post.

I also judge someone on television watching runways, and other shows.

As a fashion blogger and critic, it is my job to judge and give constructive criticism - but I admit that sometimes, out of the blue - I can't help blurting out judgy comment, my only way to release my disappointment. Not other's fault but I couldn't help it.

And I feel guilty after (of course).

Well, correction sometimes. hahaha

Another story:



I was attended this product launch at the famous club in the town - attended by known celebrities, online influncers, fellow fashion bloggers, etc. When I saw these group of clique of fashion bloggers owning a massive IG followers, to greet them and say HI - I suddenly stopped when I saw their glaring-judgy eyes staring at me from head-to-toe, them laugh to each other.


Yeah I felt a little humiliated (inside).


But then I told myself - damn I'm better!


I was invited because the PR and Management team believes with my works and passion.


And I know and everyone knows that I kick-ass.

Which makes me think...

If we minimize judging other because of their style - it the world would be a better place. Sounds dreamy but I find it's true. Women will understand more fellow women; Women will gain more friends; and Women will be more accepting. Not judging others, and rather say something nice, will gives you smile and a window (or doors!) from her life.


I'm guilty of this..
That's why I will give my pledge, together with fellow supporters and influencers for this movement.
To say something nice, and not judge the others.
I want to be part of your life.
And it is my great privilege.
I challenge you to do the same.


xoxo, Blair

  1. I actually recently wrote a post about why judging others is more about you and not them. I think we all do it for different reasons in different situations. As a salesperson though, I think she should not have made that comment. You are a customer.

    1. Thank you sis... I admit that it still happens here in the Philippines. There are times they give priority someone who dresses well. It is sad but true. Pity, coz I like that brand.

  2. Honestly, you gotta to do you, and be confident about your style, your personality and whatever makes you. Because being you is more important. So what if you don't own the last designer clothes? For me, it doesn't matter. And yes, people judge. Really it sucks, but making it through and staying positive would also be a solution. I've been also through the spotlight of judgement and I totally get you, but I bet you can rock it and own it!

    1. Thank you Liana! Yup, we can't please everybody so staying positive and believing to ourselves are the best!

  3. I hate judgmental people, even though I know it can happen sometimes unintentionally. I really like this campaign. It's funny, to me, to have snobby bloggers looking down at people because most bloggers - whether they are hobbyists or paid professionals - don't share all of their story when they post online. Chances are they took a million photos for that one perfect one on IG (which is ok, nothing wrong with it) but why act like they just woke up perfect?

    Also, I'm curious to what your weekend shorts look like because I think the top is cute.

  4. It is desirable to be non-judgmental,after all we would not know all the circumstances to pass judgement on someone else.

  5. I'm sad to say I've had this happened when my friends and I were shopping for prom dresses in highschool. People just on skin complexion, perceived social status and more. This is a great campaign to align with. I'm sorry that happened to you!

    1. No worries Star :D Yeah still lots of people are having a habit of being judgy. But then, we have to stay positive always, and not allow them to ruin our day

  6. Oh no!!!! What was her problem? And what's wrong with that top? You look great and she is no one to judge you. Besides, she has to stay professional at all levels when she is at work.
    You acted very wisely!

    1. Thanks Veronica... I don't understand her and just blurted that words on me. Pity coz I love Revlon and its ironic coz Revlon empowers women, but their staff belittles the customers.
