Hi, first of all I just wanted to tell you that I really love your blog. :) I was also wondering why you don't like Lou? I am not calling you out on anything I'm just curious because I don't really know much about her. I hope you have a great day!x
Hi anon and thank you! To your question, here’s why I don’t like her:
As i mentioned earlier on my blog, Lou’s cultural appropriating behavior really bothers me. She’s a professional stylist so I’m really surprised by how unprofessional she is at the difference of culture and fashion. For example she claims bindi is “funky” and “easy to find on ebay”. If you don’t know the cultural meaning behind bindi, you can check this article.
Second, she also showed this “new dreadlocks” in her book. Dreadlock is a significant symbol of black culture yet she thinks she can teach people how to do dreadlocks and even used a white model to represent it. It’s just terrible.
More, in her book she also mentioned this “non-tr*nny lashes” tutorial and???? Honestly??? How dare you to use transphobic slur in your fashion style book?? What the hell does non-tr*nny lashes even mean??? All yikes.
The other anon sent me this too:
