Who are Fashionistas?
I am not certain where or when I first heard the term fashionista. However, I do realize that the word is some what new to my vocabulary. Ever since I started writing fashion blog posts, I find myself utilizing the word rather often. Some times, way too often... Fortunately, I am not the only person throwing this term around. It is evident that other fashion bloggers abuse the word as well.
