WOW: Walmart fashionista?
a fashonista’s wish list? click here to see item details
I actually set foot in Walmart tonight and found the perfect pair of jeans for 20 bucks. Simultaneously horrified and excited.
so it got me thinking and wondering if you are a true fashionista will you go to Wally World? i am talking to my sister as i write this post and and she said and i quote:
who wants to buy their clothes at the same place you buy your food from? five seconds after you buy your groceries you will go to the clothing section and find a mangle of clothes mostly featuring Tinkerbell and Hannah Montanah
what is a fashionista?
is a fashionista someone who only wears labels? who only rocks gucci, balenciaga, chanel, marc jacobs, hermes, miu miu and the likes? are there certain levels in fashionista-ness?
- so you have your hardcore label wearers
- you have the mid-weights: people who have one or two “pieces” and then shop at forever21, etc.
- you have the wannabes: people who want to have one designer thing but can’t so they only shop at target, gap, f21, topshop, etc.
- then you have the walmart crew.
is that fair though? to put people in categories? to give a label to fashionistas? am i less of a fashionista because i own things from walmart? yes, i have a few dresses and a pair of jeans in my closet from walmart. do i automatically suck? am i automatically at the bottom of the barrel then? what about people who only shop at places like f21 (my fav), h&m, topshop, etc.? are these people seen as fashionistas? we all know alot of these type of shops have “faux” versions of hot designs. are you less of an it girl if you can only afford this?
now my sis is telling me the key to being a fashionista is learning to take what you’ve got and make it hot. and you know what…i think the little bugga is right. so i take my hot pink $12 walmart dress, do my makeup, pair it with some fierce nine west pumps (yes how boring of me) an oversized bag, lots of bangles and i’m good to go. i’m ready to tear up a hole in the day of boring black and grey suits. is that what makes a fashionista a true fashionista?
i’ve always wanted to be a label whore. like you see the it girls of hollycrackhood wearing this purse and this shoe and for a hot minute that’s what i wanted to be! but then i realized i don’t have the money, nor do i have the means to run through clothes like water. that’s not my lifestyle. so yeah i shop at walmart…for more than just panties.
and no disrespect to nubby twiglet. i heart her to death.
what makes you a fashionista? do you share the fear of walmart shopping? let’s go out there and glam it up!
happy worn on wednesday aka wow
much love, dendoo!
