Sick and Tired

Hi Kittens. . .

This is a random post, about nothing really style related, but important to me. This post is about etymology and pop culture trends. Small quiz to follow.

I might be the only one who thinks this, and let me know if you disagree, but I am SICK and TIRED of the word fashionista. Let me rephrase. . . I am tired of the OVER USE of the word fashionista.

Wikitionary says the word started showing up as early as 1993. I say even in the early 2000's fashionista was still cool and humorous to use. But now fashionista is trite, trendy, and silly. It is a trend that has peaked, been knocked off, and worn by the wrong people.
It is passe.

Recessionista though, now that one still has charm and meaning.

Nothing else to report.

As you were. . .
