About admin

I love to know it first, try it first and share it with you first! . At “First Class Fashionista”, we believe fashion is a lifestyle and, because at FCF we are beauty and brains, I believe being a true “Fashionista” doesn’t mean you have to spend first class money to travel first class, stay in 5 star hotels, dine at the finest restaurants or even rock the latest look of the trendsetting fashionista. I'm on a mission to inform and inspire. As always, thanks for reading. And, yes, sharing is caring--We appreciate you.
