>My parents live in Doha, Qatar. They've been there about a year and I've yet to visit them. But I'm planning a trip for Christmas and agreed to go when my Dad assured me it'll be warm enough in mid-December for my sister and I to lie on a beach/by the pool for almost two weeks. My mom sent me a link to some bathing suits she'd recommend for the trip. I picked my favorite - it's on the left. She's joking of course - not only would I never wear it, she'd never let me - but I thought you guys might enjoy a peek into something fashion-y and not New York centric. And the best part is that the model's actually incredibly gorgeous. Why bother using such an attractive woman if you're just going to cover her up? You'd think a 1920's Gatsby-esque suit would suffice. Sometimes, in the midst of all our Would You Wear crop tops/ripped tights/bras as shirts, I forget about all of the international states of "fashion" and it takes a reality check from my Californian-living-overseas Mom to remind me that not everyone runs around half naked. Yes, this is totally random, but I just had to share these suits with someone, and I knew only you guys would care.
Fashionista Turns Five! Fashionista Sixth Editor (That's Me, Leah Chernikoff) Takes a Look Back With Laughs and Cats
Believe it or not, Fashionista turns five years old this year. Which is, you know, pretty old in blog years. To celebrate our big bday, we’ve asked all of Fashionista’s former editors (in chronological order that’s Faran Krentcil, Natalie Hormilla, Abby Gardner, Britt Aboutaleb, and Lauren Sherman) to reflect back on their time at Fashionista from the highs (seeing a Chanel show) to the lows (being chewed out by Arianne Phillips for leaking her fashion week plans and costing her a client). You've already heard from Faran, Natalie, Abby, Britt and Lauren, So to wrap up our five year birthday nostalgia series, I figured as Fashionista's current editor, I ought to weigh in. I've been here almost two years and I won't even attempt to fit the things I've learned and all the stuff I love about this job into a post. It will be TL;DR and no one wants that.
