Under the influence
i never set out to be trendy. i’m not hostile to trends, but if clothes were organized and clearly marked “trendy” and ... “not trendy,” i would automatically buy from the second pile. obviously when the stores are flooded with a particular look or detail, it’s hard for it to not get my attention though.
how do you know if the item you like is something you independently like, or if you’re being swayed by a million and one different influences to like it?
