First Class Fashionista has a lot of fun content for those who like to be in the know. The site features celebrity news and celebrity fashion but it also features news about local fashion designers and events. The team is routinely invited to cover various events on the Denver fashion scene and sponsors different shows. It’s easy to navigate and easy to read as well. Be careful though; once you enter the archives, you may be prone to some serious time wasting as you peruse all of the different categories. It’s best not to check this one at work. – Alaina Brandenburger
