wardrobe_remix, a "DIY street fashion community," was created by tricia royal in september of 2005. "i believe the best stylists walk the streets, not the photo sets, nor the backstage of the runways. the real style innovators are you and me: real, fashionable people, men and women alike. how do *you* put it together? where did you get that item of clothing from? is there a story behind something you wear? a reason why you wear specific styles or types of clothing, or a particular item all the time? whatever you wear, wherever it's source (designer, mass-market/high street, thrift/charity, handmade--it's ALL good): show us how you CREATIVELY put your everyday duds together! post your photograph in wardrobe_remix, and tell us about what you are wearing and why. " ~ Tricia Royal

an OFFICIAL weekly round-up of great wardrobe_remix photos is posted every thursday.
over the last four years, wardrobe_remix has grown to over 14,500 members, and hundreds of photos are added daily.
due to this dramatic growth and concerns raised by community members, starting in OCTOBER 2009, all photos will be moderated upon submission. approved photos will be added to the pool after moderator approval. rest assured that photos will NOT be moderated/approved on the basis of the outfit/style or individual adding the photos! photos will only be moderated/approved based on adherence to the group rules, as detailed below, in the rules section of this description.
basically, the moderation/approval/disapproval process is like this: when a member submits their photo to the group, they will see the following message: "OK! That's been submitted to the wardrobe_remix group. If it is approved by the group administrator, it will show up in the group pool." all submitted photos then enter a "pending moderation" queue which the moderators will review throughout the day. if the photo adheres to the group rules it will be approved. if your photo does not show up in the group pool please refer to the rules below. in general- is it head to toe WITH feet/footwear visible? have you collaged two or more photos together (not allowed)? did you provide a description?
most people in the community follow these rules, as such, they should not see any problems re: the moderation/acceptance/rejection of their photos. generally, the moderation is merely a more streamlined, manageable way to keep the management of the group easier for moderators to handle, and to keep the group on topic and free from spam. thanks for understanding!

+ HEAD TO TOE SHOTS, PLEASE! photos that are not head to toe (including feet) will be not be approved. please see the street fashion blog www.hel-looks.com for reference on the type of photography style we are aiming for here @ wardrobe_remix.
+ provide a brief description of what you're wearing! give us the details...where? why? merely linking to your blog is not enough. just saying it's all "remixed" doesn't mean much. photographs that have only a blog link in the description field or no description at all will not be approved.
+ NO mosaics/multi-image (diptychs, collages, etc.) a simple HEAD TO TOE is the preferred format for wardrobe_remix. multi-image shots will be not be approved for submission to the pool.
+ ABSOLUTELY NO inflammatory nastiness, pornography, nudity, or lingerie OF ANY KIND. if you persist in trying to add such photos to the group, YOU WILL BE BANNED.
+ ONLY age 16 and over, please. no babies, children, or pre-teens. thanks!
+ DO NOT POST SPAM (aka, advertising of any kind, even for your etsy/ebay shop, etc.). SPAM photos WILL NOT be approved.
+ NO photos of models, no photos from photo shoots, no professional shots, no photos reposted from magazines or runway shots, please!
+ Limit your uploads to 1 per day please (as of 10/21/09)! please feel free to include detail shots in the comments of your OWN photo, of course. to add a photo in a comment, you can copy and paste the HTML linking to your photo into the comment field for the small or medium size. the HTML may be found on the "ALL SIZES" page linked across the top of your photo.
+ DO NOT repost a picture that has been in the pool before/previously in order to have it be seen again or get more views.
+ DO NOT post pictures of random people you do not know that you took on the street (i.e. street fashion photos)...this community is about YOU!
+ NO drawings of yourself or others...this is a PHOTO community only.
let's all keep wardrobe_remix an inspiring, positive place to be! on that note, some suggestions to keep the community spirit alive and interactions/participation pleasant and fun:
+ be nice to others! please do not make other members uncomfortable or feel unsafe. treat others as you would like to be treated.
+ unlike other style-sharing communities, WARDROBE_REMIX DOES NOT HAVE A RANKING SYSTEM. style is subjective and personal. if you feel you have something negative to say to another wardrobe_remix member, it's better to just move on/keep it to yourself. live and let live.
+ be nice to yourself! no negative stuff like, "oh i look like crap today, ignore this/that, my hair sucks and my tummy looks fat, but here i am anyway", please! let's be nice to ourselves...if you don't like yourself or the photo, then why post it? negative self-talk is so passe. post ONLY what you LOVE. there is absolutely no need to post every single day, unless you want to.
+ and as far as your get-up goes: please just post something you actually wore RECENTLY are are proud of! not something you tried on in a dressing room or your room, not something on a mannequin or something you fantasize about wearing, or that you wore months ago, 7 years ago, or as a child... but something you walked out the front door in THIS WEEK or so and felt good about your sassy self and something so great, you wish to share with all of us! cool? photos that are clearly of you "trying something on" for the sake of the camera or experimentation on your blog will NOT be approved/added to the pool. again, to reiterate, THIS GROUP is for photos of outfits YOU ACTUALLY WORE, and left the house in, on a given day.
thanks and love, -tricia royal (bitsandbobbins) and the wardrobe_remix moderation team (nadnuk & madamowl)
