There are many types of people in this fashion industry including the best and the bitches. I am not saying that I am the top, but I can say 100% that I am one of those polite people exists in this industry. I don't know some say I am hard to be reached because I don't really have such warm-welcomed face, plus I am not that talkative, however, thanks to my i don't give a s*** attitude because it makes me calm and have peaceful state of mind all the time.
I am quite shy in person, so I don't really have confident to go and talk to people. Therefore, I don't really try to approach them in the fashion events that much unless they come to talk to me. It is not a good thing actually because we need to make a connection with people out there, and that's how networking is really important in fashion society. It can lead to new bond between you and other bloggers, pr, designers etc. Personally, I think politeness is really crucial when approaching to people because it can tell many things about your background.
I have seen many fake politeness several times. For example, one of my blogger friends complained how much she disliked that one, but when she was at the fashion event, she was the very first person who tried to go and talk to the person she hated because of networking. I was like ''what the..." I think it's quite funny to see the real human nature here lol It just wow like I couldn't believe how could she fake to do that, and the reason why she did was to get email contact and information of how to get involve with more fashion industry and blah blah blah. Well, apparently I rarely talk to her anyway so there's no point of talking about the one who I used to call 'friend' This is one of the examples about politeness which related to what I mention that "being polite doesn't mean you have to fake since people can tell if you are truly sincere or not"
Another issue I really concern is about 'emailing' Obviously, we have to use email to contact people all the time. We are bloggers, we receive email from pr and we mostly communicate via that online channel. Hence, please use appropriate words because it really matters. There are a few people, also optimization agency which I don't ever want to work with again due to the lack of standard in email. I have mentioned before that I am one of those picky women, so I don't really wanna read or even reply back to those who type such as "Thanks! Can we make an offer $10 per post ok? Aren't you supposed to do this/that for us or what?" I'm like omfg I'm not your friends and to use the word "ok" in business email is not ok.
I don't know I just feel like to use proper wording makes you look better since the first impression matters.
