used to define a woman
with a penchant for shopping and a natural flair for combining both current and vintage fashionable trends.
In today's Urban society, "fashionista" is not by any means a negative term
Thanks to television shows like "Sex and the City" rather more specifically, thanks to actresses such as Sarah Jessica
Parker, the image of a "fashionista" has been modernized into
a much more positive, powerful and successful feminine role.
Forget the shallow, bitchy, materialistic image so many people are quick to describe.
The truth is, it's the new millenium
and the hottest trend right now, is that
it's okay to be a woman
again. The "fashionista" doesn't look
at her femininity as a gender flaw.
Where some may be quick to label her a bitch, others
actually take the time to get to know her eccentricities.
"Fashionista's" simply look
as an Art, their own bodies
as the canvas, and the sense
of style they develope along
the way is simply
" as in the clothes and not the stereotypically thin supermodels that
wear them) is simply
of identity and the people who feel the need to argue that
are usually the same people who rarely see the positive in anything.
"Fashionista's" are extremely
realistic when it comes to the world of fashion
, they're also very knowledgeable about
A person's not automatically
materialistic just because
they buy a designer suit
or expensive jeans, it's often
they just happen to know (what is called) a "good hand" in fashion
. All that
means is that
the person buying the item is aware of the "quality" of that
Buying good quality clothes, that sort of fashion, is not shallow. It's an investment.
A fashionista thinks
Why pay five dollars for say, a white non-label
t-shirt when it's just going to shrink or the hem's going to unravel or because
it was only five dollars you don't really
throwing it into the wash
with your reds? When you can buy a say, a thirty dollar
white CK t-shirt that's in all probability going to last a little longer, won't unravel, and because
it was thirty
dollars you'll actually care to read the "Care Tag" to see how you can better protect your investment (wash
in hot water, with like colours, and most importantly
HANG TO DRY)!
