Does anyone have any insight into why Josie seems to have such beef with Revolve? She never has a good word to say about them which makes me suspect she got turned down by them or something...you’d think she’d not burn bridges by so openly criticising their clothing quality and pricing in her videos???

Not sure about Revolve but she also made some negative comments about Zara lately too, which she normally pushes to the max. In one of the Freddy collabs, she said something about how cheap/poor quality the Zara stuff is and how they always “cut corners” which was odd as in the past she’s been telling us how Zara stuff is “such good quality”.

With Zara it's easy to know why she is so negative about them: they don't do affiliate links, so she can't make money out of promoting them. That is why she never puts their links to the products in her description box.

With Revolve I don't know. She once did a collab with them and she was fine with their quality then, although we never saw her wear any of the clothes she showed in her haul later on IRL, but I think she must have had an argument with them about her fee, as everything seems to be about earning lots of money with her these days.

I took note of the comments about Zara too, iris is probably right though - they don't work with influencers so she's under no obligation to say how amazing they are like she does with Topshop etc.
She's just posted a Zara haul so the quality issue must have slipped her mind :roll:
I'm glad I wasn't the only one who was disgusted by her buying designer clothes to visit a third world country. Also what was the point of Charlie being there? He's such a sponger.

I think that she only did this Zara haul to please her followers and that she will return most of the items afterwards, as they not at all what she usually wears.

And what was she thinking with those loud floral Bermuda shorts? :lol:

I can't with the summer trends that are over video. She's such a pretentious bitch. It wasn't about trends ending, rather trends she hates and thinks are cheap.

Does she not understand personal style?!?

I wish she’d stop referencing her other pseudo-informative “fashion insider” videos in every single video! Like gosh it’s a flipping haul let me mindlessly listen to it in peace without hearing you go on and on about DARK FLORALS, AGAIN. And totally agree with you, she looks dreary, drab, and beige in every outfit and then has the nerve to criticise people who don’t dress exactly like her.

She is being critiqued in the comment section for buying at Zara and preaching sustainability at the same time. I wonder how long it will take for her to delete the comments

The only reason why youtubers do Zara hauls is not for the affiliate commission (since there is none) but to potentially reach a new audience. It’s a strategy - I’ve seen girls with small channels subscriber counts soar off the back of a Zara haul, and that’ll be the only reason why Josie actually does them since she is very strategic about what she posts.

I just had to :roll: when she was going on and on in her Laos vlog about influencers that photoshop a waterfall blue when it is brown/muddy IRL, when she herself sucks the life out of all of her IG pics with her presets and even sells those for a profit. And she was wrong about it too, because that waterfall really is blue outside of the rainy season :lol:.

In her latest haul Josie showed some Reiss clothing/shoes that cost over 3000 pounds and said that she bought them with her own money. No gifts, vouchers or discounts. Do we believe her? Is she that rich? :?

I don't even bother to watch her videos anymore, am I missing much?
I noticed she put on Instagram a question sticker asking her followers how old they thought she looked, after a lady left a comment on her bare minerals pic saying something like it was nice to find a YouTuber in the late 30s. Ouch!
I wonder how everybody responded, I must admit, when I first started watching her I thought she was 35ish. I was shocked when I first heard her say she was in her 20s!
I think it's possible she's lying about her age and that's why she always says she's such a 'plonker' and can't remember how old she is when questioned. If she really is 27 - why does she look so much older than her years 😕 all those overpriced #linkeddownbelow serums can't be doing much good!

Her affected tone voice meant to be posh, the way she dresses and she carries her clothes, that she is really thin, age her a lot I think. She is still pretty, but she looks more in her 30s.

Sophie Shohet and Claire Chanelle (I Am Chouquette) are both 33 years old and look 40s, they are younger than me, I don't know if the english accent age them or something or the 'lux' lifestyle.

I no longer watch a lot of Josie's videos, however I did watch her recent "what I eat in a day" video, and had to laugh hard at how "eco-conscious" she is now. She claims to eat healthy (and use the law of attraction to stay thin LOL) and yet she eats so much junk at her "breakfast meetings" and blogger events. So her hypocrisy spans across most areas of her life I'd imagine, not just her wardrobe (buy less, but invest!). She got really thin at one point but doesn't look as thin anymore, so maybe she's gained a little healthy weight. I wonder if Charlie influences her weight and diet at all considering how health and body-obsessed he is? What do you guys think?

I am completely repelled as soon as she started showing the bag! I turned off the video. If this is the company’s way to influence me (as a viewer), it has completely worked the opposite way LoL. Money well spent on “advertising”!!

So many reusable cups etc but she’s in the background of one of freddy’s insta stories with a smoothie in a disposable plastic takeaway cup (doesn’t know she’s on camera). Wouldn’t bother me if she hadn’t been preaching so much lately 😅

Love that she's complaining that the hotel asked her to leave when she was a PAYING customer of $20 tacos so she DESERVES to stay in the hotel portion and have a 30+ minute long photo shoot. I'm sure when they asked the manager if it was okay they probably thought one or two photos not a wannabe Vogue photoshoot. No one that goes to Palm Springs gives a damn if some rando YouTuber says don't go here. Get a grip Josie. You're not the Queen of England.

They need to get a grip! I wonder how long they were actually taking photos for. Even 30 minutes sounds absolutely outrageous to me. What is wrong with them. I think everyone should go to this hotel haha who do they think they are telling people not to go there just because they were (probably kindly) moved to ask along after spending hours claiming the place for tacky photos

Her and her Barbie doll friend Freddie are so embarrassing! People are probably rolling their eyes and shaking their heads on these so called social influencers lol

Maybe the thread slows down, she's boring, her videos are the same, still salty about the disclosure...

Why is it difficult for her to follow basic disclosure rules? every time there is a song and dance from her. Also, for all the preaching she does about sustainability she does an awful lot of shopping. I get she has to, for her job but every season she shops for 10 different people's wardrobes. How is that sustainable?
