I have to say it is, in fact, better than facebook. People there share a common interest with me: fashion. Also, it helps me keep track of my daily looks so I could at least see myself improving with mix-n-matching. Experience is the key I think. Right now, I am still playing safe with my outfits, but I will try to be more risky with my choices in the future.
Who cares about what ppl think? as they only consider wearing all-black as the 'chic'est thing to do... (I used to think like that, too!!!) but honestly, we all need more colour around. the city is toooo dull!
