#SaySomethingNice

Say Something Nice campaign, women empowerment campaign,  Amazon Fashion,



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!

  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.

      Thanks for liking my top, I actually thrifted it from an old shirt, triple my size :D

  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!

  10. If everyone does their part it would be possible. I think sometimes it's done indirectly, without the person even noticing that they are doing it.

  11. OH my gosh, yes. It reminds me of that scene in Pretty Woman. When Julia Roberts goes to a really fancy store and they don't even acknowledge her and, when they do, they just assume she can't afford things because of her appearance.

  12. I don't understand why people judge you on what you wear and the fact they think they can how much money somebody has by thier clothes! I worked in Harvey Nichols a few years ago & learnt you can never judge a sale through an outfit

    1. I agree. Dressing low-key is like carrying a shield. You'll not getting any flashy attention. But yup mostly being judge that you can't afford.

  13. Girl, I get judge with looks every time I go to Sephora or a makeup store just because I wear slim to none makeup. Honestly, I even STOPED going to Sephora, now I go to the counter on Macys, the girls are nicer there!!!

    1. They all judgy. I will take it if I noticed they are very professional, but judging the shoppers because they dressed low-key, is not fair.

  15. I have heard of a lot of people being judged for their style. Whether guy or girl I think that happens to some degree. We always are having people try to measure us by someone else's standards. We really need to stop that and not worry about what others think, but I know that it is very hard.

    1. Yeah, but still the fact that most of the people are very visual. Our brains are trained that all things nice and pretty are good.

      We need to be more open for reality.

  22. I got to tell you , you look beautiful. Judgemental people are everywhere, it don't matter who you are or what you do there is always those people whose life depends on drama, and mesirable . We are individual person who have different style of fashion. For me not everyone look great with the glasses on or look good with short hair. We can't judge other because we are not perfecr.

  27. Oh i hate it when promoters give that kind of look to me. Like seriously, They don't need to be like that. It makes their customer not comfortable. ialways face this kind of situation. Normally i will walked out while saying loudly to my friends, "let's go buy from somewhere else. The staff here are so not friendly."

  28. To be honest I have never spent my time thinking how people judge me and i dont waste time judging others as well. What matters is how well we progress, not how others look or wear.

  29. Yep, been there and have been judged. While buying clothes at a high end store I dont wanna name ;), I was judged by 1 girl but instead I bought more stuff from the same counter, asked the register girl to add another sales lady name for commissions and also told them about my experience. Its just not fair to be judged and should be spoken wherever needed.

  30. Blair I believe you would look posh and chic even if you wore an old sack!The sales lady has no training and even worse IQ .That's why she is doing sales in a shop and you have your own brand.As for the other fashion bloggers they are just J because they don't have your unique style.Stop judging is z superb campaign .Loved your take

  32. There should be a level of professionalism upon attending events and coming right down to it, she had no right to be judgemental or treat you that way, for after all being humble is always the best path to follow. This is a great campaign though <3
