    Those outside of the fashion industry call anyone who is "into fashion" or "wearing crazy clothing" as being a fashionista.

    Those inside of the fashion industry view the term "fashionista" as being more equated to a label whore or someone who tries (well, some might actually live it) to portray a lifestyle of luxury/glamour/taste. Think the FIT student who runs around with a monogram Gucci tote, Dior aviators and runs around to the main designer boutiques to buy a tshirt or sneakers here and there. Their myspace or AIM name will probably have the word "couture" in it.


    Please tell me that you wrote this to be ironic, fashionista boy.

    Sometimes less if you had the right connections. Zenith prices shot up overnight (well not really) when they were taken brought to the "˜global' marketplace.

    This makes me cry a little. Zenith is one of my favorite brands. How long ago were these prices?

    Indeed, my understanding of the term was that of the latter explanation, not the former. Why do you care what anyone else thinks about your style of dress? As long as you are happy with it, that's all that matters.

    There is a different between caring what someone thinks about how you dress and correcting someone when they label you as a term that you do not like (fashionista is morethan just a style of dress; but, also a sad mentality).

    I see where you are coming from, but it all depends how the other person defines the terms of "˜fashionista' and whether you care or not if they call you that.

    It's like TB, just because I don't like the style, it doesn't mean you will stop wearing it, or that you even care what I think about the style.

    Those Dior watches should be responded to with "Eww gross" in a Cartman voice.

    It's Post Modernist. South Park on a '50s TV with a zebra skin strewn on the set.

    Am I a bad man or just into some kinky shit? I really, really want this. [​IMG] 1/4 diamond bezel? [​IMG]
    Kinky is not this. Kinky is not pre-packaged logo dross with a Red Spot; but it is Shit. Kinky is being whipped with a pleated snakeskin whip in a '70s Mercedes and being watched by women in YSL Le Smokings and monocles.
