Awesome! First "hate comment" on Wearability

Normally I like to think that our readership is a rather civil bunch, so I was a bit taken aback when this comment landed in my inbox this evening.  And thrilled.  Because if you're not pissing people off, really, you're probably doing something wrong.

I especially love how s/he talks about gladiator sandals (an abomination! really!) like they are her offspring. I swear I've never seen anyone get so fanatical about a shoe trend.

NneNna just commented on the post "Trend that should die: Gladiator Sandals." on



Update: This is the image that comes to mind when I read the above comment:

Introducing Annie!

So Annie was actually one of the first people added as a contributor to Wearability, but posted only recently.  It's a little backwards, but it seems appropriate that she have a proper introduction.

Annie's one of those enviable people who has been developing her style for years and years--and the result is something that is consistent, confident, and uniquely personal.  I've always thought of it as kind of "edgy and dancer-like," with flowy, comfortable fabrics and unfussy cuts, but I'll leave it up to her to share her perspective.  

Here she is in a bold little number she got from (I take full credit for getting her hooked on that site).  The second picture is from a photo shoot Garry did, more than a year ago.

Dress: Yigal
Heels: Cage booties, Forever 21
Necklace: Forever 21
Occasion: 3-year anniversary with her boyfriend, Randy

Introductory Post

Hello fine readers. I'm Erica and this is my introductory post to THIS : or : THAT. I am delighted to be joining the crew :o)

I have long held a passion for fashion and personal style, which I am certain I inherited from my mother (who worked as a fashion model before I was born!) I've been photoblogging my personal style since 2006 on flickr. I view style as an art form in itself, and I especially enjoy fashion that pushes the boundaries and explores uncharted territory. It doesn't have to be haute couture to be innovative, I believe. I want to do my part to encourage discovery, risk-taking and having fun with it all. Forward!

New Contributor: Sushmita

Hi, I'm Sushmita. I spend a lot of time thinking about the design of: products, art, food, and fashion. I get fashion inspiration mostly from people watching and I've also picked up some great tips from What Not To Wear ;) I'm excited to join the realistic fashion-minded crew at Wearability. Stay tuned for a first post very soon.

Oh yeah, forgot to introduce myself.

Hi, I'm Stephanie. I started Wearability so I (and some of the most realistically stylish people I know) could post stuff we like and get affirmation from others about our stupendous and impeccable taste in things.

Before Posterous happened, I thought I had retired from my uber-angsty Xanga and blogging in general. But Garry and Sachin made it so easy for me to explore my superficiality in a safe and non-judgmental space, and I realized that all I wanted to do was consume: eat, watch, read, listen, buy, wear, and understand. You can follow my non-fashion interests at:

Yes, Garry is my boyfriend, and he co-founded Posterous. And yes, we technically met through our old blogs on Xanga (or, through mutual friends, depending on which version of the story we tell). That was seven years and at least two lifetimes ago.  But we only met in person in the last three.

Roster Update: Jena

My name is Jena, and I plan to write here. I confess that I funnel all of my web research powers into finding new and interesting design things. My future home will look like it's inhabited by both Sherlock Holmes and Dieter from Sprockets.

I'm so happy to be contributing! Hooray!
