Stylish vs. Fashionable

I recently read something over at Kneehighsandlove.com about the difference between those who are stylish and those who are fashionable. At times I dont think people who are into fashion know the difference. Just because you have labels all over your body it does not make you stylish. Bea just put it so perfectly and I could not agree more with her word. Please stop by her site. Shes such a beautiful, stylish soul.

I’ve come to the conclusion that there are two different types of people that are into fashion. You have those people who are stylish, and then you have those people who are fashionable. I am going to explain the difference today.
A stylish person is someone who can do any and everything when it comes to fashion. They have a style that is their own, that other people try and copy. Stylish people do not care about the price of a garment, but how they feel when they are wearing what they like. When you have style, it’s something that represents who YOU are.

this is too funny...i was just thinking about this! bea is totally right. i used to work with this girl who used to only buy and wear name brands...and she looked just...boring. and i always felt like she looked down on me because i wasn't into all that. i buy what i want...whether it's $10 shoes from target or a $500 gucci bag. she, on the other hand, would buy stuff juse because of the brand even if it was, uh...ugly, lol.

that is so true, i don't think people like anna dello russo have real style. she just wears whats already styled on the runway... nice thoughts

I like Anna Del Russo, and I think that she has fashion sense. However, she definitely has an advantage sine she has easy access to runway looks.

So glad we're bringing this up in the blogosphere.

That is so true! I believe a true fashionista is someone who can make anything stylish. Even if it is a no-name brand!
