Fashion Personality (part 3 of 6): the Fashionista

Welcome to part 3 of a 6-part series on Fashion Personality! The purpose of this series is to introduce you to the 6 basic personalities I discuss with my Harmony Approach clients, and to give understanding on how knowing yourself is the open gateway into having true style. For this week's style story, I introduce you to the Fashionista personality. But first, allow me to reiterate the meaning and scope of the term - Fashion Personality:
What is Fashion Personality? In laymen terms, it means to dress in a way that expresses who you are. However simple the definition may be, the idea of dressing to express who you are requires just that...knowing who you are. In this hyper-voyeuristic world we currently live in, it becomes easy to adopt from others without considering our own depth of layers - layers that shouldn't be concealed, rather, when carefully unearthed, will reveal a beautiful tapestry about the person.
The Fashionista is the boldest card in the bunch, and enjoys the responses and looks she receives. Out of all of the basic six personalities I discuss with my clients, the Fashionista is the one most likely to follow trends. However trend-savvy she may be, she is the one who would be willing to up-the-ante in exploring new and creative ways to dress, thus creating her own trends. Once the Fashionista personality has been unearthed, she will find she has a penchant for drama and flair. When I think of the Fashionista, my mind goes to singer, Rhianna.

Do I consider myself as having the traits of the Fashionista? To a small degree, yes. I do enjoy creating a level of interest with my ensembles, while sticking true with my laid-back style aesthetic. Enjoy the pics, and I'll meet you below for comments.

Today's outfit is a mixture of pieces I've picked up along the way: The easy-fitting Flounce dress (last worn in Flouncing Around); cropped denim, barely there sandals with sequin socks, and a bling clutch. This look capitalizes on two trends: Dress over pants, plus the socks with sandals trend.

While some may turn their noses up at the Fashionista's way of dress, she really doesn't care. She is bold and daring, and chances are the masses will soon jump on the bandwagon to wear something she now considers - so last year.


A quick look inside the Fashionista personality:
  • Lifestyle is often based within the arts and entertainment community
  • Enjoys being the center of the conversation
  • 'Fashion is my Passion' is the mantra
  • Has a wardrobe built on everything from the latest trends, one-of-a-kind pieces, high-end designers, to vintage finds. The fashion world is her oyster and she knows how to use it
  • Enjoys absorbing everything that has to do with fashion...especially the fashion shows, in order to be at the forefront of what's new
  • Cutting-edge is the buzz word
