Hello World!

Welcome to Vivendi Fashionista’s Blog. 

For those of you who don’t know Vivendi Fashionista, it‘s the Image Consulting and Lifestyle/Personal Styling firm of choice for discriminating professional men and women. 

The company name is a play on my name, “Viviana M. Rueda”, and the Latin Verb “to live”.  So our moniker is our mantra:  a “fashionable way of life” Vivendi Fashionista.  See our About Vivendi Fashionista page for more information.

Since the company’s launch in April 2006, I’ve steadily expanded the services that the firm provides.  One of which is a freebie, for instance this Blog. 

My goal is to provide you fashion and lifestyle tips, commentary on do’s and don’ts, and recommendations on services, people, products, etc that are appropriate to a fashionable lifestyle.

How do you subscribe to this Blog?  It’s easy!  Just sign up to receive it via email or a web-based news reader.   Look in the upper right-hand column of the Blog and you’ll see these two subscription options in the color Red. 

How do I tell a friend about this Blog?  Forward them the link!

How do you know if this Blog is for you?  Consider this:  Do you live in Southern California?  Do you work in a professional setting?  Are you dating, getting married, been married forever, recently divorced, back-on-the-market?  Are you a busy executive?  Are you a working parent?  Do you feel like you lack time to pay attention to the quality of your lifestyle?  Okay, so are you alive?  This Blog is for you.  And if you are the walking dead, let me know because I know people who can help with that too. 

I’m the all-around Zagat’s Guide-GenLux-Ask Abby-Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous-Live the Good Life girl.  If you need a fashionable lifestyle solution, I have it.

How do you know if the topic is for you?  Obviously I’ll try to be as descriptive as possible in the headline, but here’s a tip.  Some Blogs will be focused on Men, others on Women and others for everyone.  I’ll make note of this in the headline. 

Guys, here’s your opportunity to gain uber-knowledge into what women want (at least in the Fashionable lifestyle world…don’t go there).  So when your wife, girlfriend, aspiring-supermodel-girlfriend-to be, etc. asks “Honey, whatever am I going to wear to the Company Holiday party?!?” and you come up with a Vivendi Fashionista tip….You SO owe me.  Trust me; this will get you major brownie points. 

Ladies, you already know how valuable it is to be in the fashionable lifestyle know.  Anyone recall the scene in “The Devil Wears Prada” where Meryl Streep describes the provenance of the color cerulean?  A bit esoteric, but not if you learn how to pair the color with your wardrobe.   And you’ll score credibility points with your men, too, because doesn’t every woman know everything about fashion?  Consider this the source for your ongoing expertise –The guys don’t need to know that you got the fashion know-how from Vivendi Fashionista!  Mum’s the word.

Here’s your first insider tip:  Check out the Jamah Sample Sale this coming Saturday, October 20th, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 21 Galleon Street, Marina del Rey.  All purses, backpacks, carry-ons $20.  American Apparel t-shirts, sweats,  jackets $5-$20.  Jamah handbags run in the hundreds of dollars!!! This is an awesome deal.  Look for the tall blonde running the show, her name is Nancy and she’s the founder of Jamah.  Mention my name!

Live Well My Peoples!
