Facebook Ads Algorithm Has My Bohemian Number

Boho skirt

We all know our electronic devices are listening. They are keeping track of every click and all the words we write, in order that companies like Facebook and Google can try to sell us stuff. My husband deals with it by going through periodically and eliminating his interests in Facebook settings, (over time FB will decide he is interested in X and start creating a new interest list for him). He also marks all ads as irrelevant. Consequently, he gets ads for some pretty weird junk sometimes. Weird as in we aren’t even sure what it is. Me? In principle, I dislike the idea of being monitored and using my interests to entice me to buy stuff. That said however, I’ve pretty much taken the opposite approach to my husband. I don’t try to fight it. And now, the Facebook ads algorithm has my bohemian number.

They introduced me to Fairy Look Dress this past week. I will say upfront, I am not affiliated, but I really wish I was.

Boho skirts

I’m sharing my favorite skirts and dresses.

And yes, I did copy these photos from their site. I hope they are down with the free advertising.

Boho dresses

I haven’t ordered anything (yet), because it would require making a decision.

It is likely I will order from them eventually, but at the moment I am savoring the anticipation at making that choice. I haven’t even looked at tops yet.

This extensive collection of work has also allowed me to better analyze what it is specifically that I like about this style. First, it is the often vibrant colors used. I already knew that about myself. The second characteristic that draws me to this look is the embellishment that most pieces possess. The cool thing about that? Embellishment is something I can add to the clothing I already have. And my mind is spinning with the possibilities.

Here is a list of blogs where I link up.

The companies with which I have affiliated myself are companies with whom I have actually done business. Therefore, I can make these recommendations based on my positive experiences.

  1. I hate how they track us! and they do all the time – all you have to do is look at one thing and it will show up in an ad within minutes

    1. I suppose I really shouldn’t complain when they are showing me things I love. LOL! I ordered just one skirt since I haven’t deal it’s this company before. I hope it’s awesome, because then I will order more.

  2. This is one of my pet peeves about social media! Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us at the Creative Muster. Looking forward to seeing what you’ll be sharing next week. Pinning!

  3. My own approach are ad blockers, so I at least don’t have to see the ads, and sometimes deleting interests etc. (it has been a while, thank you for the reminder). I don’t think I would use FB anymore at all without blocking, I’m always shocked if I open FB somewhere else.

    I’d love to see what you have ordered and if you like it!

    1. I do use ad blockers on my computer, but I rarely use my computer. I do almost everything on my iPad. But you’re right, FB has a lot of ads without it.

      I have ordered that yellow skirt. I hope it fits and is as pretty as the picture!

  4. Omg omg omg I would totally have places an order by now. That beige dress towards the bottom is so incredibly beautiful, but I love the vibrant colors in some of these skirts as well, thanks so much for sharing and yes, it is so creepy when Facebook listens!

    1. I did order the yellow one, and I can’t wait to get it. I want to order more, but since I haven’t ordered from this company before, I decided to just start with the one.

  5. That yellow colored skirt is gorgeous! I use Facebook very little, so I let the ads be there… Sometimes I acted like your husband, but don’t care any more! Thank you for linking and sharing these fabulous dresses!

  6. Oh my goodness, Michelle, now you’ve got my number! These pieces are so gorgeous! While I don’t wear boho style every day, I certainly do love to splash a little boho throughout my wardrobe. Now I am going to click on these and then ads will start enticing me on the daily. Thanks! Hahaha.

    1. I ordered the yellow skirt and can’t wait to get it! I wanted to order more, but not having dealt with this company before, I used restraint.

    1. I will! I can’t wait for it to arrive. Since I haven’t dealt with this company before, I ordered just the one. I hope it works for me, because there are others I’d like to have.

  7. What beautiful pieces! I can see why you can’t possibly decide what to buy, they all look great! 🙂 My facebook ads are so strange and varied sometimes – not sure what they think my life is like, haha!

    Hope that you had a great weekend! Thank you so much for joining the #weekdayWearLinkUp 🙂 I just posted this week’s linkup, I’d love you to join again!

    1. Thanks so much, Mica! I decided to order just one skirt since I haven’t ordered from this company before. I am so eager for it to arrive. And I hope it’s as nice as it looks, because I’d like to order others. And I will link up again. Thanks! Going to look for your post now.

      Edit: Ha, I’d already linked up.
