Great to read!
Will you also sort reactions by nationality?

I, too, was wondering about location of your viewers.
And congrats on the MET pics!

You could spot new trends with demanding audience!

It’s so sad to see how many women still respond to Marc Jacobs and Chloe. There are so many other amazingly talented womenswear designers out there who deserve attention for their creativity and originality that it’s so disheartening to see them still buying into the lowest common denominators. I hope the new energy in menswear and their guidance spills over to mainstream womenswear.

Thanks for the initial survey results – it’s fun to know a bit about other folks enjoying your blog. Your site’s such a pleasure to follow – your efforts are much appreciated!

Why is it sad to still like Chloe or Marc Jacobs? Just because a designer is popular doesn’t mean it’s bad. It’s true that there are many great new designers… but reality is that most of them are inspired by the Chloes and the MJs.

Thank you for the results. I hope there are many people from Europe following your great blog. Fashion is all over the world and as John Malkovich said ‘style is the only constant in life’.

I didn’t mail you because I live in India and most of my preferences would have been second hand , you know via magazines and the internet, but I was interested to note that I am typical of readers in my age group(25-29). I love your blog and read it everyday. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.

Location would be good

I didn’t e-mail a response either because I’m more of a fashion spectator than a fashion participant. That is, while I like seeing what people are doing, I prefer to pick and choose what I want and wear it my way. Also, I don’t read magazines regularly, and I don’t shop at any one store consistently.
So of course it’s great to learn that I’m right in line with the other 40-something women who DID respond. :)

i’m one of those 36 years olds into Teen Vogue… hehe. why??!

I would do location but it is so broad it would take a long time to get it done.
I can say that because the blog is so photo driven, I have a large international audience – they don’t have to read English to enjoy the site, which is nice

as one of the 40-49yo women who responded…I think you have hit some of the major points. I don’t really have time to follow trends. I shop at all kinds of stores because (1)I know what works for me and I don’t care what the label is and (2)the department stores and boutiques cater to under 30s–because they DO follow trends so it’s easier to buy and stock for them. When you are balancing marriage-kids-work-etc you need an easy personal style–I don’t have time to keep up with the latest thing.
But I read your photo blog BECAUSE the people are REAL. The clothes are REAL. And I love a great looking scarf :-)

I am similar to the mom who just posted, an older reader. Her comments are so correct.
1. The sizing on high end trendy clothing often doesn’t fit the middle aged body, no matter how fit or slim that body may be.
2. The cut is often neither age nor activity appropriate (business lunch, visiting the school, etc.).
3. Many mass merchandisers really do offer very nice clothing. I remember the NYT had an article about a year or two ago in which a design student examined clothing from discount stores and found that many of the items did exhibit “top of the line” trends. I was converted when I looked at the buttonholes on a “better” sport jacket (made in USA) were badly done, and the buttonholes on my cheap denim discount store shirt were impeccably finished.
4. Our financial priorities have changed. We just don’t have the loose change for big fashion. (Another reason to like your blog. Many of your photos show people who have spent almost no money and yet look good.)
Thanks for a great blog.
