I had some work/study free moments recently (to my everlasting joy) and I indulged in some much needed girl gist and fruit therapy (the flat belly battle is constant). As I sat listening to the normal hilarious and wisdom filled chatter of delicious female gist/gossip, I observed that a lot of us were taking pictures and viola! I had the makings of an interesting blog post.
The next weekend I went researching; and by research I mean I went shopping (desperately needed to restock my fridge and re-activate my social life) and chilling with friends at various fun spot in the city of Lagos Nigeria and what do I see everywhere I looked? People taking pictures at an average of 20 shutter speed per minute! Amazing isn't it.
I sure found it hilarious! I and my friends were in the thick of the photo mania as we took hundred of selfies and #ootd pictures from every conceivable angle, in order to refresh and flood our social media pages with fun pictures that is guaranteed to turn an erstwhile boyfriend, colleague-zilla or frienemy pea green with envy
The celebratory status and complex one attain with good, clear, trendy, fashion forward pictures on social media like instagram, pinterest and twitter has made talking pictures less of a fun exercise and more of a desperate attempt to fit in or be famous. Hence the rash of social media identity theft, photo-copying, impersonation and exploitation.
Till we meet again next week, keep taking fab ootd selfies. To get them featured on the blog, follow our instagram page @MillicentMFTV and tag ur photos to us with the hastag #MillafashionPhotomania.
