How One Blogger Took on the Oprah Empire

Posted on 10 July 2015


As fashion bloggers, we are individuals trying to build our followings. Sometimes big magazines and publishing companies seem to dwarf us in size as well as influence. But a Brooklyn-based writer has proven that even with a relatively small following, a single fashion blogger can influence even the largest media operation: in this case, Oprah magazine.

When Tamar Anitai, who blogs at Fashion Binge, noticed an article with a section about crop tops in the publication, she took to her Instagram account. When should you wear a crop top, the blurb asked? “If (and only if!) you have a flat stomach.” Say what?

Anitai’s response was a photo of the article with a pretty great caption:

Can I get an amen? Anitai’s post led to the hashtag #rockthecrop, in which, you guessed it, women of all shapes and sizes sport short shirts. See The Curvy Fashionista above (who also awesomely wears one in her “About” page photo, and several others IGers below:

The article in question, by the way, was written by Adam Glassman as part of his Adam Says column. He has also written about his beliefs that women over 40 shouldn’t wear mini skirts and that women in the workplace shouldn’t show cleavage. So yeah, we’ weren’t listening to him anyway.
