HISTORY OF MANOLO BLAHNIK

HISTORY OF MANOLO BLAHNIK

Oh no here it comes…another Sex in the City reference in this here blogsphere. Blame Carrie Bradshaw and her obsession with True Fashionista Manolo Blahnik shoes, as she so famously quoted:

“You can take my Fendi baguette. You can take my ring and watch but you can’t take my Manolo Blahniks.”

HEELS FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T WEAR HEELS

HEELS FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T WEAR HEELS

This topic must be addressed. The world is not always fair, as we have especially seen in recent days. Months. While most take easily to heels and the rest grin and bear it, there are some, sadly, that are unable to squeeze their pedes into a sexy pair of Manolo Blahnik stilettos. Thankfully however, there are many True Fashionista options that get you pretty close to that sexy, confident-yet-careful style exuded by those who defy gravity on a regular basis.

GOTTA GET ME A BROWN LEATHER JACKET!

If you’re reading this from your cozy abode situated nearby a stunning array of tree color, chances are that the weather situation is screaming for a True Fashionista  leather jacket. In brown, of course, by the trends we’re seeing lately. If you happen to live in tropical environs like we do, we can only look forward to a couple months from now or perhaps a purposeful lowering of the house AC for a little pretend action. Hey these are crazy times…
MODERN TIE-DYE STYLE

MODERN TIE-DYE STYLE

The sixties were umpteen million years ago, and one of the major results of that unique moment in American history is: no, not political and social upheaval and war; no, not the musical revolution, but the stuff of legend: True Fashionista tie-dye. As 2021 rapidly approaches, we ask, is tie dye still a thing? It’s still very much an activity, probably more so these days in quarantine situations. However, do they still carry cred on the street?
HOME ORGANIZATION REDUX- KONMARI MEETS FLYLADY

HOME ORGANIZATION REDUX- KONMARI MEETS FLYLADY

Back in 2018 the world went crazy for Marie Kondo. Her “Tidying Up” book and companion Netflix show were monolithic gargantuan megahits, with delighted, committed hordes following her directive to dump the contents of one’s closets on the floor in order to pick up each item, decide whether or not it “sparks joy”. It does? Back into the closet. No? Out you go! We were rolling socks into neat rows in shoeboxes and everything. The concept was magical and has hopefully lasted through all the extra time we’ve been spending cooped up (safely) in our homes.
HISTORY OF COCO CHANEL

HISTORY OF COCO CHANEL

Yes of course Coco Chanel is synonymous with all that is True Fashionista, and label namesake Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel led quite the adventurous and exciting life, breaking ground and introducing now legendary items and looks that we just could not do without in our style pursuits. Even now, in the pandemic and most cautiously, post-pandemic era, we continue to use Chanel as a standard against which many fashion entities are measured.

FASHION WEEK REIMAGINED

FASHION WEEK REIMAGINED

Here we are over six months into a pandemic, but the world must go on. The fashion world, like everyone else, knows full well that now more than ever the masses need, crave actually, fresh designs and the runways with which to introduce them, even if it’s mostly the live streaming version. Who better than True Fashionista creative design types to come up with a way for Fashion Month to still somehow happen? All that quarantined creative spark has had to go somewhere, and from what we’ve heard and seen from the initial party, aka New York Fashion Week, the new fashion normal did not disappoint.

It’s not a question of when, but how, will you be wearing a skirt? Today’s selection? Tomorrow? Not to mention as always, who will you be wearing?

HISTORY OF LULULEMON

Have you unfurled your mat, popped a video on and found your state of vinyasa in a solid yoga session or two lately? Gone for a socially distanced run around the neighborhood?
