Hipsters Vs. Trendy

A few weeks back, Tab and I hit up our regular lunch spot, Whole Foods.
Do you have a Whole Foods near you?  If so, you should totally shop there!  The food is yummy and healthy.
While I enjoy the food, that isn’t the only reason why I am a regular at this establishment.
Whole Foods just happens to be crawling with people referred to as Hipsters.
How many of you just hummed that Ke$ha song?  Don’t lie!

What is a hipster anyways, Jax?
A hipster is a super cool and super fashionable person that definitely doesn’t use the word “super”.
They are known for their unique style, underground music choices, and the need to always be different.
Tell me you’re not intrigued by these people?  They have cool written all over them!!

This led to a discussion of how I would love to become a hipster.
I mean, hipsters are totally hot!  I also love their carefree attitude and unique style!




That’s when Tab looked at me and said “You can’t be a hipster. You’re trendy.”.
Mixed emotions much?  I’ve never been labeled before!!
Tab then went back to eating his lunch like nothing just happened.
I mean, how could he be so ignorant to what he just started?
Tab challenged me.  Tab took off his glove, slapped me with it, and initiated a duel.
Challenge accepted and game on.

That’s when Tab caught my eye and knew exactly what I was thinking.
After an unnaturally long huff, he said “You can never be a hipster.  That’s like trying to convert Paris Hilton.”
Paris Hilton?  This went from a glove slap to swinging at me with a sword!!!

I then spent the next week gathering as much information as possible on how to become a hipster.
Lucky for me, I found a website with a very thorough step by step guide.
I’ll keep you guys updated on my “hipster” progress.
…because you care, right?  Right?!

Have you ever been labeled with a social title?

  1. Lol, isn't it just impossible to let a challenge like that go? Tab is so going to lose!

    I've never been given a title and, in fact, I keep thinking that if I do end up in the States I'm going to need some real help fitting in.

    Or, I could just wear a sari.

    1. Of course...you can't let that slide!!!!! LOL Who's he to label me???? Pshhhh...Managed to get through all of HS w/o being labeled and suddenly he goes and does it?? The nerve!!!!!

      LOL Aw, I'm sure you'll fit right in :)

      What's a sari?

      Delete
    2. A sari is about six yards of material that you wrap round and round. I'm sure you've seen Indian ladies wear them.

      You know, we should have added peanut butter and Nutella to our list of words. ;-)

      Delete
    3. Ohh, ok...I didn't know what it was called!

      Nutella? oh, that could be sexy!!

      Delete
  2. I love Zooey!! I wish she were my BFF & that we hung out at Whole Foods together. ;)
    As for being labeled...it's all in the name of my blog. It comes from back in the day but it has always kind of stuck with me because classic & preppy pieces make me swoon.

    1. Ohh, I love her too!!!! She's sooo pretty and super quirky! I love her style too, but something tells me that only she could pull it off ;)

      I knew you would pick Preppy! It's a give in! lol

      Delete
  3. I have been given lots.. Sometimes titles which could contradict each. I don't think hipsters are cool,based on your posts you come off as "stickler" , "perfectionist" not hipster.

    1. Come on, Cap!! I've been challenged and bring me back to "trendy" ways?? Sigh... lol

    2. Hipster sounds kinda juvenile, immature, cowboy kinda person with priorities all screwed up, you don't want to be a hipster. ;)

      Delete
    3. LOL So basically I should tell Tab, "Pshh, why would I want to be a hipster anyways?!" Good call!!!! lol

      Delete
    4. Could it be possible that you misread Tab? I guess he was complimenting you by not branding you as hipster? hipsters are fake people who try hard to impress people, they have nothing original.

      You are genuine,, unique and original, or that's what I think of you.

  7. I wouldn't even try to be a hipster. I am just so uncool. I think it's from people telling me I wasn't cool from a very early age, and then one day I was just like, "Oh f#$%& it! I will never be cool." So, there ya go. these hipsters are an intriguing species though. How can they be "super fashionable" if they are not trendy though? Does it mean they just make up their own fashion that isn't a trend...like maybe going around with an onion tied to your belt and wearing a pink shirt with pictures of pickles on it? I could do that, I guess.

    1. LOL Jimmy, if you rock that outfit you just created not only would you be a hipster, but I'll make a lovely entry about you being the R&W hipster of the year!! But, I'll need pictures of you in public rocking the outfit with no shame!!! Ohh, this could be soo fun!! ;0) lol

  8. We just got a Whole Foods in our little town two weeks ago. And believe it or not, they even allowed a redneck like me to shop there.

    1. LOL Whole Foods is so yummy and healthy!! Score and Score!

  9. No Whole Foods up here, just like diners I fear. Crappy Canada, geez...haha.

    And LMAO oh the cat and Pat give Tab big props for being honest. And we have to agree a Hipster you could never be. Care free? hahahahaha I think converting Paris Hilton would have waaay better odds.

    Been labeled? Not sure about fashion wise, but yeah we've all been labeled a time or ten, oh well who cares, we are who we are and that should be that.

    1. No Whole Foods and no diners?? OH my!! Canada has to get updated. lol I still say you open your own diner and get rich off of its goodness. :)

      You're siding with Tab???? What an awful cat!!!! Wait until I tell Pat that you went and sized with Tab. Sigh... Are you starting a duel with me as well? I could become anything that I want to become...and that includes a hipster!!! Converting Paris Hilton would be EASIER??? Ohh, it's on!!!

    2. LOL bring it as I the cat will claw away and keep you at bay. For you can't to the hip so just get a grip..hahahaha

  12. I don't care for either. I can't stand people who just try to be different to be different and especially those who constantly go around talking about obscure bands that they think are impressive to talk about because NO ONE has heard of them.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. LOL Try to be different to be different...very true Bama. But now let's say that someone told you that you CANT be that person trying to be different to be different because it's too different. That's insane! You could be anything that you want to be!

      Delete
  13. Trust me, you don't want to be a hipster. Most times it's not a good term for those who are individual and unique. It's usually a bad term for those who don't take care of their appearance because it's "ironic," will be unhappy if their favorite underground artist gets any kind of success (and stop listening to them), and thinks they're above anyone else who doesn't act and dress like they do. No thanks.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hipsters don't seem to be getting as much love as I thought that they would. LOL Yes, I don't get the whole music thing. Shouldn't they be happen for their underground band's fame? Why stop listening to them then? What a fail!

      Delete
  14. Good luck on becoming a hipster. Though I don't know what a hipster is (beyond your definition) or what trendy is.

    (My social title is: Weirdo/Loser which means I do whatever/wear whatever I want and I look lame doing it! Yay!)

  15. I've been labeled as "Goth", I guess because of my musical listening habits, hair style, and the way I dress, but you'd never know it during football season as I'm constantly clad in Patriots t-shirts, hats, and jersey's. Most of the year, I wear a lot of black, but September-January, it's red, blue, and silver!

    1. Patriots??? Hollllaaaa !!!! During football season you'll see me rocking my Patriots socks and Aaron Hernandez jersey. Silver and blue...let's goooo!!! During that time I fear for my life. Rocking Patriot gear in the heart of NY is not a very safe thing to do ;) lol

  16. Say it ain't so Jax? I always thought you had your very own unique and cool style, I didn't see you as the person trying to copy someone else's. I think Jax is awesome right now, don't be a hipster! LOL

    1. Matt, I don't want to be a hipster...I just don't like being told that I can't be one if I wanted to. It's just not fair!!! LOL Damn Tab challenged me into becoming something I don't want to be. He's evil!!!! lol

      Aww, you think I'm awesome? Thanks, Matt!! lol Or maybe you just really don't like hipsters...hmmm

    2. LOL thats true, it's always nice to prove someone wrong when they don't believe you can do something.

      I think you're awesome but I don't like hipsters too LOL.

  17. I hate to break this to you, but hipsters are some of the trendiest emm effers of all. I personally can't stand them. It looks like they're all wearing a uniform. I say be yourself. I mean, when have you seen a hipster and not been able to point and say, "Hipster!" They obviously wear very specific things. And I wouldn't call Zooey a hipster. She wears really simple vintage stuff. I love her style, but she drives me bonkers. :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Right? I feel like Hipsters try so hard to be unique that they end up being the least unique people. I like to watch them because I like how they pair all those cool clothes together in a way that I'd never be able to.

      Ohhh, I love Zooey!!!! Seeing her makes me smile!!

  18. Love whole foods! I agree Jax. Hipsters are cool :-)

    But no! I've never been labelled with anything except for one time a few years ago. I used to live in Fulham and worked as Credit Controller. So, I had to look smart when I went to work.

    I went into the corner shop one morning before work to buy something. The guy serving looked at me and said, "You always look good. You look like a million dollars!" I was so flattered. Although to him I looked like a million dollars, I knew that my bank account didn't reflect what he perceived me to be!! But it was good that he saw me that way. :-)

    1. Right? Whole Foods is great!!!!

      A million bucks? I bet you did look like it! See, people always make assumptions..at least yours was in your favor ;) I'd be flattered too! lol

  19. people usually address me with "Your Imperial Intergalactic Majesty" I guess that counts as a title, yes?
    I can't stand hipsters, especially these two from the pics who have no taste whatsoever, there's nothing hip about them. The same goes for that horrid Kate Moss who is the trashiest dressed being ever.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ohh, that certainly is an awesome title, Your Majesty!!! lol It makes sense since you are at the head of the alliance. lol

      It's not about liking the hipsters, it's about being whether or not I could become one if I so desired. lol LMAO Yea, Russel Brand don't look too hot there, does he?? lol I do love Zooey though! I think this quiry and gorgeous!
