Oh, Formspring...

I wasn't even going to post this, because as I've learned all my life you shouldn't acknowledge negativity...but it's my first rude comment in the blogging world so I thought I would celebrate the fact that maybe this means...gasp...I'm a real blogger! Woohoo! I will say though, that if you have something to say, you should comment so I can reply to you! :) Because it technically is still "Formspring Sunday" I just had to share this last little submission that was just sent to me.

You kind of seem like a snob to me. Sort of prissy... Always wearing dresses, always manicuring your nails. Don't get me wrong, I think it's fine to take care of yourself, but the way you come off is like "No WAY I wouldn't ever wear jeans... " Why do you feel the need to be so snobby about things that alot of other people like. As with all things on a blog I'm sure not everyone feels like I do. Your mannerisms just seem uppity to me and I wonder if you ever think beyond your "dress up" photos? Do you ever do any community help? Do you ever get out of your house and do anything for anyone else?

A couple of things, and then I promise I won't waste any more time on this silliness, and I also promise I won't ever repost another rude submission (unless they're hilarious, like this one). First, I don't like jeans! AHH sin of sins! There, I said it. And OF COURSE I am saying this to make all people who wear them feel bad about themselves. Because dresses are better than pants, and anyone who wears pants is dumb. Clearly. Helloooo, I think jeans are uncomfortable. Annoying waistband, rough fabric...no thank you! I wasn't aware that avoiding uncomfortable clothing items made me a snob. If it does, then sign me up, sista!

Secondly, I'm a teacher! I "get out of my house" everyday and work with teenagers...teaching them to read, helping them become better people, all that good stuff. Annd, I actually enjoy it. C'mon...you should at least read back in my blog before you made a rude assumption like that, you meanie.

Jeez Louise! Sorry for this little bit of negativity but I just had to share! I've seen so many of my friends get rude/mean comments on their formsprings that I felt like I've been waiting for this day to come. And today, I have officially joined their club. So thanks, anon! <33

  2. "uppity"? seriously? if you wore Vuitton from head to toe and bragged about your multiple yachts, I can see that as a "uppity" but you wanting to look nice being a problem?? So ridiculous. I love how you wear dresses all the time, and women should take care of themselves even if they have the time for it. If anything, you are encouraging others (including myself) to be more "uppity" ;)

  3. People are so silly. I don't wear jeans much either due to the same things you listed! They are just not that comfortable to some people but many other people adore them, to each its own! And about the taking care of yourself, being cute is never a crime! ♥

    ReplyDelete
  4. haha i had seen on twitter where you said you got a mean comment and i was wondering what it was about lol, that's kinda silly...i hope that person thinks twice about leaving rude comments...

    ReplyDelete
  5. LOL! Maybe she should "do community help" instead of reading bogs she obviously doesn't care for and then leaving rude comments! so funny, i'm glad you posted :)

    ReplyDelete
  6. haha! I don't think wearing dresses and doing your nails would make anyone snobby! I'm a jean wearer but I wish I could wear dresses everyday. Love your blog! :)

    ReplyDelete
  7. WOW! That was not what I expected when you said "rude" comment. That was down right mean! I'm so sorry that someone posted such nonsense, and hopefully it doesn't continue happening.
    Like i said before, I'd really have to rack my brain pretty hard to think of one negative thing about you.. you're awesome!
    & I second what, "skunkboycreatures" said, we love ya-the end. :)

  8. i've gotten those on my blog before, sadly. 'I HAVE EXPENSIVE THINGS TOO, I JUST DON'T PHOTOGRAPH THEM FOR EVERYONE TO SEE!'

    erm, well...alright.

    i think you are fine the way you are, don't change. let people be negative.

    ReplyDelete
  9. haha what an idiot

    i actually dont think they've ever read your blog!

    In no way would I call you uppity or a snob!

    People have too much time on their hands x

    ReplyDelete
  10. Goodness! That was a downright unnecessary amount of grump. I am also on the side of dresses and the occasional bit of girly self care, and I really don't think that there is a darn thing wrong with that if it's your preference. I'm glad that you can take negativity like this with such a level head. You are a real peach, Danielle.

    ReplyDelete
  11. hahaha, oh my goodness. obviously her mother never taught her that if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all?! good thing you are out there teaching others the importance of this. you are adorable in all of your lil' dresses. i envy your style, and the ability to pull off such cute outfits. and i LOVE jeans, but i would never hold the fact that you hate them against you. loves <3

    ReplyDelete
  12. aaa, people on the internet. you know that wouldn't have been said to your face. we both know anonymous is alone in that boat. just let her float.. and then sink.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hilarious! Excuse you for being a lady!

    I wish I could throw out my jeans and wear dresses all the time! I agree, so uncomforable and its hard to find a good fit anyway no matter your shape or size!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Aw what an awful person! You are definitely not a snob! I have been following your blog for quite a while and I think you absolutely lovely. You are sweet, caring, and extremely tolerant of the opinions of others. I never wear jeans either because they are uncomfortable and I don't find them very flattering on my body. I think that is a silly reason to call you uppity. I think your style is adorable!! I'm glad that this negative comment didn't seriously upset you! You would have a lot of followers ready to throw down if that were the case!

    ReplyDelete
  15. HA! I love it. Anonymous haters are the best. I get them all the time. I was snob for making my child's baby food. Oh and one time I was told I look like a man. Good stuff.
    I like you, even if you are a snobby, dress wearing, lazy teacher. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh man, people are stupid and jealous! You are everything except what this mean person said about you!! This is ridiculous! I agree with what you answered... I wear jeans pretty much everyday but I don't like them ever! Yes, jeans are uncomfortable, this is a fact! Personally, I cannot dress up with my job because I get very dirty so this is why I wear them! If could I will have your style everyday :) I think and even if i don't know you as a friend, I am just a blogger reader, that you are a very sweet and talented woman!

    ReplyDelete
  17. oh dear. you don't come off as a snob at all! you are such an encourager, a sweetheart, and completely open-minded when it comes to peoples' differences. where did this person get this?!

    ReplyDelete
  18. haha. welcome to the internet.

    SO sillies. love you.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ha! Ridiculous! At least the haters are severely out-numbered here =)

    ReplyDelete
  20. oh the crazy that is the anonymous.

    I disabled my formspring. I don't like the anonymity. Or the 1 extra social media website to keep up with

    xo

    ReplyDelete
  21. i'm a new reader to your blogger, and first of all - i absolutely adore your blog and all that you choose to share with the world! second, you in no way come across snobby. i have to say, that anon comment made me laugh out loud! people are ridiculously silly. oh boy. how lame. please take your negativity somewhere else.

    also... i have a hard time liking pants, jeans, anything of the sort. more power to people who like them, though! sometimes i wish i did... but i honestly prefer dresses and skirts. it's just how i am. but i don't think that makes me a snob? everyone like different things. so?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I wear jeans. I have one pair. They don't really fit right. I typically hate wearing them unless I am too lazy to put something together. I don't blame you! It's near impossible to find a great pair. There are millions of brands and cuts out there. My best friend spends HUNDREDS of dollars on a pair of jeans. They look good on her to don't get me wrong and she has ADORABLE style. She also says, you will never really find a truly great pair unless you spend $$$$. 1 pair of her amazing fit jeans= at least 3 dresses from Modcloth or 1 or 2 from Anthropologie. I suppose you are just a gal after my own heart. Ok that was long, but puhlease!

    ReplyDelete
  23. what a ridiculous person! I will never understand why some people feel the need to attack others on their own blogs. And do you notice that it is always done anonomously. I mean if you going to attack some atleast be grown up enough to not have to hide whyour identity.

    Well just know you have hundreds of other readers that think you are fantastic and we love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  24. how utterly ridiculous! the comment... not you! if someone thinks you're a snob then why the heck do they read your blog! c'mon! that's just dumb. we all have opinions on matters and if people don't like it, don't read it! and i have to say, you don't come off as a snob at all. i enjoy all your posts and all your pretty pictures of you in your pretty outfits! you make me want to wear dresses more often... jeez, that comment got me irked and it wasn't even directed at me.

    by the way, thanks for entering the giveaway i was super excited to see your comment since i've been a follower of yours for some time. i enjoy your blog immensely!

    i hope you have a lovely sunday night.
    xx

  25. Wow, I can't believe people can be so mean. I think people like that are just jealous and bitter. Glad you aren't taking it seriously.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ouch, this is the problem with everyone having the internet. Such comments are not needed. There is enough negativity without such things.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Not that I agree with this girl in any sense- part of the reason I follow your blog is because you seem so relate-able..
    But I really don't like the notion that there isn't room in the blogging world for *constructive* criticism. I have left a few fashion blogs now because of the girls' insistence on only positive comments. I never made any comments myself, but didn't like the concept and it seemed like they were just fishing for compliments.
    As this proves, people can be mean. This is not the kind of comments I mean. Telling someone that you love their top and skirt combination, but you think the skirt might look a little better an inch shorter.. I don't consider that negative.
    I'm not a fashion blogger, I'm a travel blogger; so maybe I'm wrong, but I thought one of the main reasons to post outfits would be to get feedback- like asking friends from all over if they think these shoes match.
    I do really enjoy your blog though. It's always fun to see new ways of creating young, teaching appropriate outfits. We live in an odd realm.

  28. lol...that one really made me laugh! you´re really snobby, danielle, did I never told you?? lol

  29. what a really negative person!what would even make people want to say that to someone?!that person must really have some anger in them to take it out on someone they don't know,and obviously don't want to put the time into getting to know (ie. reading your blog).

    take no notice lovely,maybe this person should take a look at themselves before launching a character asassination against someone as lovely and friendly as you xxxx

    ReplyDelete
  30. haha! perfectly handled situation, danielle.

    ReplyDelete
  31. awww. Whatta meanie!

    Good for you for staying positive!

    ReplyDelete
  32. wowo how rude!! I never understood why girls are so catty. I mean I get the high school years and all but come on. Danielle is so incredibly sweet.. ugh people like that obvioulsy have their own insecurities and are putting it on others. Danielle, your awesome, keep doing what you do :)

  33. Obviously this "anon" person feels terrible about themselves so they have to cut you down to feel better. I came across your blog a few days ago and I think you are adorable! Don't worry. There are so many negative people out there. God Bless!

    ReplyDelete
  34. i am so glad that this poster said something. I mean working with you everyday is a chore. You never have anything nice to say nor do you ever offer any words of encouragement. i am fairly certain most of your students dislike you. and when i wear jeans, the judgemental looks you through my way could turn me to stone. there i said it. so glad i got that off my chest. ok all of that was sarcastic silliness.

    d: you are a genuine diamond filled with a sweet creamy center. you are as beautiful on the outside as on the in. we all have a bit of xenophobia in us. perhaps this is one of my tree hugging sisters who just doesn't get it. you are loved.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ridiculous! Formspring is a dangerous place. I've reopened mine, but comments like this make me wonder why?! I'm sorry you had to get this comment. :[ It really makes me sad that people are so rude and they won't even confront you to your face!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I wear jeans everyday. Your choosing to wear cute dresses has never once made me feel insecure or snobbed out about my jeans???? Hmmmmm..... I find this commenter's comments quite SNOBBY against all who choose cute dresses!

    ReplyDelete
  37. haha WOW. sounds like someone is just jealous about what a lovely person you are!:)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I hate jeans too! I'm all about dresses and skirts! You're lovely :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. oh my gosh, the nerve of some people.

    i just hate that when you're having a really good day and are feeling good with so many nice comments, someone has to ruin it.

    i had my first negative comment a few months back and it really upset me, i just didn't find it necessary!

    danielle, you are beautiful! that's just who you are, and if this negative nancy actually read all of your entries, she wouldn't dare say something so not true.

    ps ; all i wear is dresses! honestly...i have so many and that is what i feel most comfortable in. i don't own one pair of jeans because i find them uncomfortable and i just LOVE dresses, they make me happy and they are just so cute! :) people always comment on the fact that i always wear them! and i just say...it's because i love wearing a dress, and being a girly girl. that floats my boat

    well, i know you wouldn't let this comment get to you this much, because you're like the most popular girl in the blog world! and rightfully so, you write about real things, and sweet and sincere things, and you're not sometimes sweet, you're always sweet!


    xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow what a jerk. I mean really coming down on someone because they were dresses. This person needs to get a life and finding something better to rant and rave about.

    ReplyDelete
  41. the person CLEARLY doesnt know you. you are extremely kindhearted and just an all around lovely human being. jealously is a STINKY perfume!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Uppity? Is this the 1950's?

    She sounds like the snob to me.

    ReplyDelete
  43. well...that isn't nice of them.

    i think you're lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  44. oh dear, yes, you are soo snobby..where do these pople get their stuff from, seriously, and they never leave a name either, which only works against them, who can take those kind of comments seriously if they don´t even dare to stand for who they are...anyways, love your blog,xxx

    ReplyDelete
  45. That's hilarious. It's such a ridiculous comment. Gotta hate dem uppity bitches.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hey Danielle!

    I can't get over some people they are just so obnoxious!

    I finally started a blog! Please read it if you can. xo

    ReplyDelete
  47. they could have said something to you about this in a nicer way if thats possible. maybe its cause they saw photos of all your nice things. not every one has everything they want. people can get jealous

    ReplyDelete
  48. I think it's good to address things when they are down right out of line. Even though that was silly, it was out of line for that person to say those things. What happened to live and let live? If they don't like you, don't read the blog!

  50. I just wanted to say that I wear Jeans and don't take offense to the fact that you don't.

    This is too funny.

    ReplyDelete
  51. people are silly. don't mind them.

    ReplyDelete
  52. such silliness!

    some people are dumb and cannot understand that being rude is equal to being a snob [which you are not btw] so by spouting their nasty, ill-thought out comments they are the ones behaving badly.
    jeeze..i think it is them that have TOO much time on their hands!

    ignore them i say! i love your pretty dresses! it wish i could wear them; but deep down i am a tomboy and am a jeans and tshirt kind girl. it makes my day to see your lovely outfits so keep on being your amazing self

    ReplyDelete
  53. I really, really cannot get past the fact that this person used the word "uppity!" Simultaneously the funniest and worst thing of the day.

    ReplyDelete
  54. oh my my, how sad is it that someone actually felt the need to sit and write such a awful comment to you. don't pay any attention to it, she's just jealous, so sad she felt the need to do that. you're adorable and so is your blog (and i agree with diana; i LOVE your dresses! hehee :) continue being who you are and writing what you want. you've done nothing wrong! i happen to love your blog. :) xo

    ReplyDelete
  55. wow, what a little shit! haha
    jealous much??? you know people who say crap like that are just so unhappy with themselves that they find someone that they see as prettier/smarter/funnier/better than themselves and try to knock them down. how ignorant that she doesn't realize this about herself. poor little girl she is!

    ReplyDelete
  56. That's hilarious. Not once have I ever seen you write anything that was bad towards anyone else or that sounded like you think you're above anyone else. You just tell your opinion. It's sad that people are mean because they're jealous that you're so cute all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I can't believe this! I follow your blog regularly, but have never commented and I just feel a need to. I don't think you come off snobby at alllllllll. Just because you like to wear dresses and paint your nails? That's so silly. If anything, I think EVERY post of yours is sweet and nice. And I've read alot. Who is this person to judge you? It's so silly. Just keep doing what you're doing. Thanks for all of your encouraging posts and lovely words.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Wow... if you don't like the blog, don't read it!

    I think you're wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  59. She's just jealous coz you're awesome haha! xo

  61. how ridiculous!! people can be so ignorant and they have way too much time on their hands!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Jealousy can rear its ugly head at any moment on these public blogs. Keep your perfectly groomed and beautiful head held high! We love you!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Well handled. I was just thinking today how brave you were for putting yourself out there for people to ask questions anonymously and how self-assured and positive you were with your answers.

    That first mean comment is kind of a right of passage online isn't it.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Oh my. All you can do is laugh at the ridiculousness of it. There's constructive criticism (which none of that was) and there's just being downright mean.

    From the posts I've read in your blog (which he/she obviously didn't) I can tell you're a sweetheart. I have mucho respect for you for being a teacher. (I wish I had cool teachers like you when I was in high school! Haha.)

    Keep your chin up, Danielle, and keep doing what you're doing!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Sad to say, but negative comments seem to be a right of passage for popular bloggers. Frankly, I never "got" that you're a snob. I guess I am as well because I don't like/wear jeans, and I exclusively wear dresses and skirts. I was called a snob because of this in high school, so maybe this comment came from one of your students. It's about as sophisticated as a teen's comment might be.

    ReplyDelete
  66. You can't please everyone. There will always be someone that will pick apart everything you do because of some underlying cause which is usually jealousy. You're as cute as a button so keep being cute, darling!

    ReplyDelete
  67. LOL! Wow! That was downright uncalled for but well handled lady! She'll probably be back later too. Some people are just unbelieveable. They can't get what they want out of life because they're so negative towards it. Just keep doing you and putting out those good vibes. We love you and that's what matters.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Don't worry, the things I get are 10000x worse. Its like people are trolling my formspring just for the hell of it. Don't let them get you down, I always have fun with it lol. :)

  69. of course its anon. people with Stupid (yes i said Stupid) opinions are too chicken*shiz to own their words. Makes me laugh. What a wimp.
    Do your thang girl! But do post the ridiculous ones... it's funny! lol

    ReplyDelete
  70. hahahahahahahahahaha what a dumb ASS bitch!!! so funny at what shes upset at! get off that Hateraid girl!!! shiiiii

    ReplyDelete
  71. Oh puh-leeze! Some people just need to keep their comments to themselves. I don't find you snotty or stuck up at all! And even if you don't like wearing jeans, you aren't saying that no one else should either. What a punk!

    They probably just needed a cupcake that day.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Haha~ sounds like a mean jealous monster!
    wow! she took the time to write all that? shes got problems!
    ur cute

  73. Oh Danielle, some people just need to be mean to others. That sucks that it was directed at you. I love jeans, and I still think you are awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I'm so sorry that you had to experience such silliness and rudeness! Ugh...Grrr.... sometimes when people are unhappy with themselves or just having a bad day, they take it out on others. I LOVE dresses and skirts, and I also love jeans. You are entitled to your opinion, like everyone else. I didn't get the impression that you were snobby because you didn't like jeans. And I don't feel bad for liking them. :) Continue to be who YOU are and forget this silly comment. xo RobbieLee

    P.S. Thanks for sharing!
