The Fashionista Files: Adventures in Four-Inch Heels and Faux Pas

Availability: Ready to download

A fashionista is a girl who always looks current and cutting edge, even when her clothes are vintage 1975. A fashionista can tell her Pucci from her Gucci and her Blahniks from her Choos, but she’s as comfortable in Kmart as she is in Chanel. She wears what she likes and always looks fantastic. She’s a clothing chameleon: a sharp tweed suit and ladylike driving gloves one A fashionista is a girl who always looks current and cutting edge, even when her clothes are vintage 1975. A fashionista can tell her Pucci from her Gucci and her Blahniks from her Choos, but she’s as comfortable in Kmart as she is in Chanel. She wears what she likes and always looks fantastic. She’s a clothing chameleon: a sharp tweed suit and ladylike driving gloves one moment, a punk rock T-shirt and studded belt the next. She’s a gypsy, a princess, and a diva. She’s fashion-forward, shopping-addicted, and full of fun. And you can be her, no matter your size, style, or budget. Authors Melissa de la Cruz and Karen Robinovitz are fashionistas who share a love for impractical shoes, small dogs that fit in designer handbags, and wearing white after Labor Day. They eat, sleep, and breathe fashion. And they’ll teach you how to • Make a whole new wardrobe out of the awful duds that lurk in the back of your closet • Use the words “postmodern” and “ironic” to fake your way through pseudo-intellectual cocktail conversation (really–it’s easy, and so postmodern and ironic!) • Score big with chic and cheap finds at thrift stores, consignment shops, and discount designer outlets • Live like a socialite on a shoestring budget In two weeks or less, you’ll be living the lush life, from the brim of your Eugenia Kim fedora to the tip of your pointy Christian Louboutin pumps!

    It's been a while since I read this book. It was an impulse purchase while I was shopping at Target. Pretty good for the fashionista set I suppose, which I'm really not. I like to shop and buy cute shoes & clothes, but I'm a little too low maintenance to be a fashionista. As I remember there were some tips scattered through out the book on how to "recycle" certain items, such as t-shirts to make them more high fashion. It's been a while since I read this book.

    I'm definitely keeping this one around for awhile on my reference shelf. There's enjoyable ancedotes of the authors' love for fashion, but it's tied to an understanding of the development of fashion history in the Twentieth (and 21st) century. While many fashion blogs are fun to read, these gals have the depth of knowledge, gained through love and repeated wearings, that connects the dots. A fun read!

    This book is over-the-top. I love it for that. If you want practical down to earth tips on how to get dressed in the morning for work, or sensible makeup techniques, don't bother. If you are bored with the run-of-the-mill what-fruit-does-my-body-look-like books then pick this book up. It got me excited about fashion and style all over again. This book is over-the-top.

    i read just 20 pages couldn't bare any more DO NOT READ. It's basically 2 British women judging the figures, style choices, weight, eating habits, shoes, skin, etc of other English women in a very rude way. Plus you can tell their tips are for them or people who look like them. i read just 20 pages couldn't bare any more DO NOT READ.

    I am embarrassed to admit that I read this book, but I will do so for everyone's benefit. As much as I loved Melissa de la Cruz's "Chic Happens" column on Hintmag.com, this is basically a book about how to be a fashion victim, and, really, do we even need one?
