About



Hi. I'm Kristin. Here's what you need to know about me: Wisconsin "Cheesehead" who lives in Scotland and also sometimes Florida, freelance writer, blogger, ex professional saxophonist, current once in a while saxophonist, Air Force veteran, nurse practitioner, plant-based eater, left-leaning, horse person, and friend to all the other walking, swimming, crawling, slithering, and flying things.

There are all sorts of fallacies floating around out there about the fashion world, perhaps the biggest of which is that fashion is somehow at odds with being a fully-realised, intelligent human being. Or that it's not for a woman of a certain age. Or that it's not "real" art. Or that by enjoying fashion you are a shallow person, a vain person, or just a person who is not to be taken seriously. This, as they say where I come from, is bull crap. 

Sure, fashion isn't brain surgery, but it's not trying to be. But it is it's own ever-evolving discipline, and there is inherent value in that. Among other things, fashion can push boundaries and challenge you to step outside of the familiar.  Fashion can not only expand your wardrobe possibilities, but enhance your creativity and your confidence. 

Besides, everyone deserves to feel the caress of a fabulous new pair of lusted-after shoes,  even if there is a high probability that you may step out your front door and into a freshly-minted collection of sheep droppings. 


And now for the fine print


The (rather stubborn) opinions expressed on this blog are my own.


I do accept certain select products for the purpose of review, but any recommendations I make are products and services that I myself have selected to showcase because they are interesting to me and (hopefully) to my readers.  If anything has been gifted to me or is a part of a promotional campaign of any sort, it will be very clearly tagged as such. 


Highland Fashionista is a participant in the Amazon EU Associates and rewardStyle, which are affiliate advertising programmes designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees or commissions by linking to certain brand product pages. Posts that are sponsored by a retailer or design house will be disclosed, and will have a "sponsored posts" tag attached to them. Any affiliate products that are showcased will have been chosen by me.

Links to my Etsy shop will take you to...wait for it.....Etsy. Anything you see for sale there was handmade by me. 


Photos that are not attributed to or linked to another site will have been taken by me and are the artistic property of HighlandFashionista.com. If you want to use any of my photos, feel free, but I do ask that you give credit and provide a link back to this blog.
