TIMELESS INVESTMENT PIECES FOR YOUR WARDROBE

With the new year and decade falling swiftly upon us, its time to take a fresh perspective on your closet. One of the best ways to achieve an update while avoiding an overabundance of dated clothing is to invest in True Fashionista pieces that will survive trends and hang on through your Konmari purges as well.
THE EVOLUTION OF THE PURSE

THE EVOLUTION OF THE PURSE

The purse, that iconic True Fashionista place for your stuff carried by women (and yes a lot of men too) has a long, varied history.
THE RETURN OF THE FORMAL DINING ROOM

THE RETURN OF THE FORMAL DINING ROOM

Dining while binging Netflix has finally had its backlash. The whole eat ‘n run thing centering around the kitchen island may still have its place, but these days interior designers are focusing on the family and bringing it all back to that spot in the house where memories used to happen around a good ol’ meal, the True Fashionista dining room.
HISTORY OF RALPH LAUREN

HISTORY OF RALPH LAUREN

Is there a polo shirt or two hanging in your closet? Without a second thought, a vision of those preppy short-sleeved, collared shirts has now popped into your head, whether or not the pony is present in the upper left corner. If you were wearing them in the eighties, yeah that collar was UP, and you very well could have been layering two True Fashionista polos at once. But we digress, the shirt’s the shirt, right? It’s a style all its own, regardless of what’s in the corner. Now take a step back and realize that Ralph Lauren first designed that iconic shirt in 1972. Now a household name, the polo shirt is actually a Polo, capital P.
INTERIOR DESIGN TRENDS FOR 2020

INTERIOR DESIGN TRENDS FOR 2020

Our world is getting smarter and smarter, and by that we specifically mean our homes. What with Alexa, touchscreens, programmable water faucets and ovens that you can turn on from your phone from halfway around the world, the True Fashionista future is here. It should come as no shock then that interior design trends are looking to be warm, cozy and reflect the home as a place for refuge and coziness. What is so exciting about trend-seeking this year, confirms Aida Sniraite, interior designer and owner of Authentic Interior, is that we will be witnessing how materials, colors, and textures will cohabitate with humans during the years to come as well as adapting it to our needs now.

TWEED – YOUR COZY WINTER FRIEND

TWEED – YOUR COZY WINTER FRIEND

With the ushering in of colder temps and the official holiday season, we once again turn to tweed, that long-lasting True Fashionista material that somehow both withstands a wind chill and also has its revered ongoing place in high fashion. Sometimes, however, it takes a daring stunt to remind the world that tweed indeed has its place.
HATS OFF TO FASHION

HATS OFF TO FASHION

Outside of the Kentucky Derby, hats might not be the starting point when planning your attire. Often it’s the rest of your True Fashionista outfit that takes center stage, and what might sit atop your noggin comes after the fact. Hats, however, can very much state the crowning glory of the whole presentation. (Ok we’ll stop.) They’ll cap off the outfit to make your statement and everything. (We’re done we promise…) Hats are actually among the accessories that get an update every year. You can find them in a myriad of colors and styles to suit changing tastes and trends.
KEEPING UP WITH PANT TRENDS

KEEPING UP WITH PANT TRENDS

Fall is roaring back and it has us thinking about…pants! Those of us who get to deal with winter on a more personal basis know the importance of keeping a collection of two-legged True Fashionista wonders each season; in warmer environs they’re merely an option. Either way, it’s good to know what to look for this year to go with your Madden Girls and Vejas.

They’re like an old friend you’re happy to see after so long. Think about it...
