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.

We’re focusing on the younger set for this edition, because c’mon, they’ve got their social media finger on the pulse of all that is True Fashionista fashion, be it on TikTok, Instagram or occasionally donning a facial covering to venture back out into the real world. They’re paying attention, and designers are paying it right back. Check out HerStyleCode as a convenient one-stop idea shop for your fall and winter outfits, accessories included. Then read on for more hip ideas so sick (Maybe that’s not the best hip teen adjective at the moment!) you’ll be perusing Teen Vogue all season long.
SO MANY SKIRTS!

SO MANY SKIRTS!

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? After so many months of sheltering and zoom meetings, we’re ready to make our lower halves important once again, and what better way to accomplish that  than by donning a stunning, True Fashionista skirt to strut your stuff into a socially distanced, sanitized setting this fall and winter?
HISTORY OF LULULEMON

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? Whatever your choice of athletic activity, we’re going to take a wild guess it was while wearing at least one True Fashionista piece of Lululemon Athletica attire.
HOW WE LOVE JEANS

HOW WE LOVE JEANS

"I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity — all I hope for in my clothes." 
-Yves Saint-Laurent
FALL/WINTER TRENDS – 2020

FALL/WINTER TRENDS – 2020

We’re taking our educated guess to predict what is going to be on your back, and our racks, through the new year. Maybe by One One Twenty-One (We said it first, mark that!) we won’t even have to match the mask to the ensemble. It could also be said that all this mega-quarantining may have inspired designers to come up with this year’s fresh looks.

“I like the everyday process and the people, the pressure, the surprise of seeing the work come alive walking and dancing around on strangers. Like red lipstick on the mouth, my products wake up and brighten and bring the wearer to life.”
