Is fashion really for rich dummies?

People who happen to have some sort of interest in fashion tend to be judged by 'the smart people of the world' as shallow and as someone who has way too much money for their level of intellect.
The charges are: there are more important values in like than appearance, there are more important activities than shopping and playing dressing up, there are more important obligations in life that require your money and a intelligent person won't waste their money on clothes and everything related.

Who are these 'smart people of the world'?
The jealous, who lacks in either fashion sense, money, aesthetics or motivation.
The busy, who has no time for a bullshit stuff like fashion so just row the superfluous fashion industry and everybody who thinks the opposite.
The other kind of the busy, who brags about the very very very important activities in life that are the true meaning of life and besides those, fashion has no place to exist. (this is actually quite common between fresh moms who has no time for such things like dressing up or shopping.)

These are quite sad to write as I've already written an article of the importance on style and self-expression with fashion. Not he mention the power of first sight. You can have a wondelfull personality, but a misarable outside can perfectly hide it. And not having an expressive personal style makes you have to talk more about who you are and what you want.
The whining of the fashion hater moms isn't surprising either that they can hardly find any jobs. Employers doesn't like shitty appearance, surprising, isn't it?

(Stylish moms, don't get it personal) and it is not about hurting anybody. I just want to open the eyes of the mentioned, and yes they probably won't read blogs like mine, but if you have a friend like them, please have a little chit-chat about the importance of style. I matters a lot and it's not a matter of money.
There are a lot of more money-consuming hobby activities like photography, playing any musical instrument, golf or scuba diving and no one cares about those who like doing them. 

Why the fashion? Why do they suppose that if someone is interested, they must be a stupid bitch with her daddy's money (or gay if it's a guy)?

I think about fashion as a way to express our personality and mood, but it is also important that we know how to adapt it to every situation. You don't need to be rich to dress well!

What is the important thing then? I think people should see we only live once and should enjoy our life everyday and the way we want. If I love fashion or good food, who is to say it´s not important? I hate people telling me how to live, what to love, what to think etc.. :D

Thank you for this post:D Now I need to take some coffee and calm down.. :P

i like fashion but i think it is important to find what suits you personally and develop personal style with more classic pieces instead of buying all new things every season that will look dated in a couple of months

Blah, I've been sick to my stomach, of hearing crap about people who like to look pretty. What's wrong with doing something that makes you happy? How many people enjoy much more expensive hobbies without being judged? But in the minute you start thinking about your appearance and you're automatically labeled "superficial" Well, excuuuuse me, for living in a world where appearance is the first thing people judge you by. People made society to work this way, so if anyone has a problem with me loving to dress up, maybe they should stop bathing and start walking naked on the streets and see how's that turning out for them.
