A term used to define a woman with a penchant for shopping and a natural flair for combining both current and vintage fashionable trends.

In today's Urban society, "fashionista" is not by any means a negative term.
Thanks to television shows like "Sex and the City" rather more specifically, thanks to actresses such as Sarah Jessica Parker, the image of a "fashionista" has been modernized into a much more positive, powerful and successful feminine role.

Forget the shallow, bitchy, materialistic image so many people are quick to describe.
The truth is, it's the new millenium and the hottest trend right now, is that it's okay to be a woman again. The "fashionista" doesn't look at her femininity as a gender flaw.
Where some may be quick to label her a bitch, others actually take the time to get to know her eccentricities.
"Fashionista's" simply look at Fashion as an Art, their own bodies as the canvas, and the sense of style they develope along the way is simply the masterpiece.
True fashion ("true fashion" as in the clothes and not the stereotypically thin supermodels that wear them) is simply an expression of identity and the people who feel the need to argue that are usually the same people who rarely see the positive in anything.
"Fashionista's" are extremely realistic when it comes to the world of fashion, they're also very knowledgeable about the Fashion Arts.
A person's not automatically materialistic just because they buy a designer suit or expensive jeans, it's often truer about "fashionista's" that they just happen to know (what is called) a "good hand" in fashion. All that means is that the person buying the item is aware of the "quality" of that item.
Buying good quality clothes, that sort of fashion, is not shallow. It's an investment.
A fashionista thinks like this...
Why pay five dollars for say, a white non-label t-shirt when it's just going to shrink or the hem's going to unravel or because it was only five dollars you don't really care about throwing it into the wash with your reds? When you can buy a say, a thirty dollar white CK t-shirt that's in all probability going to last a little longer, won't unravel, and because it was thirty dollars you'll actually care to read the "Care Tag" to see how you can better protect your investment (wash in hot water, with like colours, and most importantly HANG TO DRY)!

Someone that takes fashion so seriously that it has usurped
all their other systems of belief.
It has become their politics.
They rule with an iron fist and
utilize fear more so then any
form of creativity to maintain their
dominance in the style hierarchy.
They are insecure, lonely, vacuos,
after ten minutes you realize all
they have to offer is the only thing
they've talken about, their new shoes.
The following statement would be made by a fashionista, "I really was in love
with him/her but then he/she started doing these colour combos that were really insensitive."
