Mejuri Evil Eye Ring & Vogue’s Hypocritical Bashing of Bloggers

September 27, 2016

GOOD VIBES ONLY.

I’m all about it. And so is this Mejuri Evil Eye ring, in more ways than one.  Talismans like the evil eye ring are thought to protect people from receiving the evil eye, which causes injury and misfortune.  This ring from Mejuri is even more special because it protects and it gives back.  More about that below.

When I’m having a rough day at work I love looking down at this ring as a reminder to stay positive.  It’s also a great ring to have when you’re getting chewed out by opposing counsel or a particularly harsh judge.  Even more, this ring seemed particularly appropriate to wear this week in light of Vogue’s harsh and hypocritical article bashing bloggers and influencers. The piece at issue, Ciao, Milano! Vogue.com’s Editors Discuss the Week That Was, called bloggers pathetic and embarrassing, and even insulted the intelligence of bloggers as a whole by questioning whether we are registered to vote.  Well yes, Vogue, I am registered to vote.  I also graduated from the University of Texas in 3 and a half years with a 3.987 GPA and graduated with my juris doctorate with high honors.  And yes, I have a “real career” as an attorney (yes, this article did tell bloggers to “get a real career”).  The article further bashed bloggers for wearing borrowed outfits – because Vogue doesn’t borrow anything for shoots, right?  PLEASE.  Get over yourself Vogue.  Your disgusting article is stereotyping a group of entrepreneurs and cutting down women for, GASP, giving consumers what they want.  Times have changed.  Consumers want to see REAL people that they can relate to.  A few mega influencers (Shea and Danielle) have already sounded off on this piece, and I can only hope that their responses gain more attention and support than the tasteless article published by Vogue.

A percentage of proceeds from the sale of this ring are given to The Her Initiative, which provides access to clean water and specific health & hygiene curriculum to women in the developing world.  I love companies that give back.  It’s so inspiring and makes me feel good about spending my money.  Not only am I getting something that I want, I’m also helping someone in need.  It’s a win-win.  Xo, AL

    I didn’t read that article, but from your summery of it, I’m quite offended! I can’t believe Vogue would bash a community of people who love fashion just as much as they do. On the bright side, I do love that ring!

    It’s so funny how something with the name “evil” can have such a postive impact and message!

  • Annaliese September 29, 2016 at 7:15 am

    Cute ring, and a great perspective on the Vogue article! I haven’t read the whole thing yet, but it’s been really interesting to read everyone’s thoughts in the blogging world.

    ABSOLUTELY love your article. I have two master degrees and work running social media at a large NGO. I blog because it’s fun and it’s a great creative outlet. Also, love the ring. That is fantastic.

  • Jami September 29, 2016 at 10:05 am

    Yes, good vibes only. Love it!

  • Sara Kate September 29, 2016 at 11:50 am

    Mhmmm that article was so insulting. They are probably just mad because so many more people are reading blogs than printed magazines, etc. Loved this post.

    THANK YOU. I totally agree with everything you said. I was so horrified by that article – a magazine that I have loved for so long and looked to for fashion ideas completely bashed my passion. Whatever happened to women encouraging one another?

    That Vogue article was such a sad and pathetic attempt to devalue everything we do as bloggers. I was never a huge fan of Vogue to begin with, but I definitely am less of one now. On a happier note, I love your ring!

    I love Mejuri, their pieces are so dainty and sophisticated but they each have a little pop of interest.

    I love the ring! 🙂 Also, I’m so glad you brought up the article by Vogue. It was absolutely disgusting and distasteful on Vogue’s part to tear down other women like that…absolutely disgusting!!! I love blogging as it’s an outlet to share my passion, I’m sure you feel the same way. And, like you said, on the other side I’m a full time student (and will soon have a 9-5 job) and a mother. There’s a lot more to the life of a blogger than Vogue makes it out to be.

    Those rings are so pretty! I love them. I am so saddened by Vogue’s article, but it has been amazing to see the blogging community ban together and say something 🙂
