YOU KNOW your a Fashionista or a Fashionister when…
…you see a sign that says Y-3 in the Sam’s club parking lot letting people know what level and area that they jut parked in. And instead of thinking its a parking sign like most people you get real excited from the sign and walk up close to it thinking “Wow! Y-3 -Oh Man! I sure hope there’s a sample sale or pop-up store nearby” and seeing this sign in yellow and black, it sure doesn’t help that the Y-3 brand Uses orange and black as their brands colors. Me being a pretty bad fashionister especially when it comes to kicks and jeans went right up to the sign and took this picture. And “No” there was no sample sale or pop-up store nearby. Bummer.
Although one of the reasons this sign stood out to me was my good friend Rolanda in NYC was the first to let me know about sample sales years ago and the Y-3 Sale was the first REAL name brand sale That I ever attended.I loved it, real expensive clothes and kicks for extremely great prices and since I wear Large, a 40 suit and either a 9.5 or 10 size shoe, the sample sales work for me perfectly. Even though I only wear these shoes once a year at Halloween, I just had to buy something at the Y-3 Sample sale, so I bought theses super bright Y-3’s and at the time bright orange was one of my favorite colors so it worked out well
The funny thing about these shoes is the box says they are for basketball-see below-I cant see anyone in this world wearing them to play basketball. they are soft suede Fashionister shoes only made for late night european style dinners and hotel Costes After hours lounge parties.
Note: Dictionary.reference.com defines the word:fash·ion·is·ta as:
And I define Fashionister (Fash-Uh-Nee-Stir) as the male version of the female Fashionista. For some reason, I couldn’t find Fashionister on Wikipedia, encyclopedia Britannica or even dictionary.reference.com. Hey-Next week, I’ll be in Seattle for my Step Sisters Weddng.
