I’m obsessed with Who What Wear (WWW). I’m constantly on their website for inspiration, tips, and a little education on the fashion world. Well the last thing I read was pretty comical to me. Comical in the sense that I couldn’t believe it was published. The title of the article was “13 Must Know Habits of Highly Fashionable People”. Naturally I was intrigued by the title so I clicked it. I wanted to see if I “qualified”. You know. Do I still “got it”? I started reading.
1. RUNNING IN HEELS.
Duh. Is that a question? Of course I can. So far so good.
2. BUYING HIGH IMPACT PIECES.
Check. I have too many of these pieces. This is why dressing casual is a bit tough for me and I’m always overdressed.
3. INSTINCTIVELY DOING THE HALF TUCK.
Umm ok sure. I’ve been doing this awhile. So ok. I’m still good.
4. COLOR COORDINATING WITH FRIENDS.
And this is where I’m like is this a real article? Did WWW actually add this to the list? Are we in middle school? Last I checked fashionistas stood out in a crowd. I shook it off a bit because maybe they assume that fashionistas all hang out together. IDK.
5. CONSTANT PAIRING OF CONTRASTING ITEMS.
That’s a good one and thought we were back on track. Then came number 6.
6. TAKING ADVANTAGE OF CUTE FOOD ITEMS.
Ok. I like food better than the next person, but what in the world does this have to do with fashion? Only because someone takes a pic of macaroons does NOT make them fashionable. Am I right?
7. TURNING SUNDAY MORNING BRUNCH INTO A FASHION EVENT.
I could totally see this, but unfortunately I personally barely get dressed on Sundays. Let alone put make up or a bra on! Ha!
8. OCCASSIONALLY CHOOSING FORM OVER FUNCTION
No I won’t ride a bike in heels. I know you’re saying well why would you run in heels. That basically means I’m super comfortable in them, but to wear a heel or wedge when biking is plain dumb. Cute outfit or not. I would at least take my shoes OFF and then put them back on when the ride was over.
9. ALWAYS REMEMBERING THE THIRD PIECE.
I’m on the fence about this. I don’t always think you need a third piece, plus it reminds me of a corporate sales job. One of my bf used to work at Nordstrom and they had to always have 3 pieces on. So I’m on the fence here.
10-12. I completely agree with except the picture they used for Number 10, Creating New Outfit Combos, was just plain awful. She did that alright, but I wouldn’t look at her and say to myself “I want to recreate that”. Nor would I look at her as a fashionista.
13. POSING IN FRONT OF (OR ATOP) VESPAS.
This one did me in. What? So basically you’re telling me all I need is an ice cream cone and a vespa and I’m the next Rachel Zoe?!!! Thanks! I could have saved tons of money and worries on my next “it” outfit although now I’ll be needed that money for a personal trainer AND my copay for my diabetic medicine for all the sugar desserts I’ll be consuming. And since I won’t be walking anywhere because I have to drive my vespa everywhere I go so I don’t miss an opportunity for a photo. Phew! What a relief.
I’d love to hear your thoughts. Here’s the link to the full article with pics.
