It's not us. Blame the runways for suggesting we set aside the sunscreen to start planning for the third quarter. (Emit sigh. Sip fruity beverage, insert bookmark, and click on True Fashionistas.) No worries, we did the research, so you can squeeze a little bit more happiness from the waning days of summer before heading over to Naples' best consignment store, True Fashionistas, to get your fall fashion game on.
After being canceled in 2020 and pushed back to September in 2021, the 2022 Met Gala, with all its glitz and glamour in full resplendence, returned to its cherished First Monday in May with the dress code of “Gilded Glamour, White Tie.” To further explain, attendees were encouraged to approach late 19th-century clothing through a modern lens. Many of our cherished True Fashionista designers created one-of-a-kind attire to adorn the A-listers who attended the fundraiser of the year.
We love our designers! As true artists and creators of gorgeous clothing and accessories, you could call them our favorite True Fashionista subject. We very much enjoy sharing the history and stories behind the people and houses who continue to come up with the looks we revere at Southwest Florida’s largest lifestyle consignment store, True Fashionistas. Here are a few of the top designers whose artistry is continually in high demand by shoppers and consigners in our world.
As the world returned to normalcy, so did the runways for spring and summer '22. Like the rest of us, design houses were so happy to move beyond two years of "covid crazy" that collections took on an air of easy playfulness. One step inside the 13,000 sq. ft. space of True Fashionistas, Southwest Florida's largest lifestyle consignment store, and you'll get that feeling as well, but we digress…
As fashion expert Lianne Wiggins recently pointed out, we are living through "the anything-goes mood of now," meaning that the old idea of things being "in" or "out" is in itself redundant. You can be as wild and adventurous or as basic as you like with your spring 2022 trends. Doing what you want is IN, baby!
Welcome to Part Deux in our True Fashionista feature of how to create a capsule wardrobe, that collection of timeless essentials that you LOVE to wear. The goal behind building a capsule wardrobe is to create an effortless style for ourselves so that getting dressed becomes easy and stress-free every day and for every occasion!
It’s that longer-than-usual moment where you stare into the depths of your closet like you gaze into the open fridge trying to make a decision. If that moment seems to happen to you more and more frequently, maybe it’s time to step back and create a True Fashionista capsule wardrobe. If you’ve been wondering where all the clothing went that you used to really like, we will bring it back to the basics here, so choosing outfits will be the least of your challenges. Each day will have more of a chance to reach its full potential once you’ve created your gorgeous capsule wardrobe, much or all of which you can discover at True Fashionistas, the best designer consignment store.
There you are, finally back in (insert fave big city here) to celebrate the holiday hustle and bustle and enjoy the winter chill. Before you know it, a brisk breeze has come out of nowhere, causing you to tighten the belt on your maxi coat just a bit.
MET GALA 2021 WRAP-UP
Fashion's biggest night out came roaring back this year, canceled in 2020, and then only slightly postponed from its traditional May date. Nevertheless, the Met Gala, Metropolitan Museum of Art's signature True Fashionista event, returned this September, on a Monday at least, to the delight of all who appreciate fashion for the art that it truly is. How great is it that offerings from many designers who dressed this year's cavalcade of "It" peeps can be found at True Fashionistas, the best designer consignment store?
To linen or not to linen, that is the question. Aren’t you glad you have True Fashionistas by your side, watching out for every crucial step in your fashion-forward linen journey?
