What's a Preptista?

Tuesday, October 7, 2014

By far the question I get asked most is "What does Preptista mean?" I've gone back and forth multiple times on how to address this, but I thought today, seeing as it is my 200th post on the blog (yippee!), was the right time to do so. Here's the low down on the name...

{That's my actual cursive handwriting!}

How did you come up with the name Preptista? 
Preptista is a word I made up one day when I was brainstorming blog ideas.
What does Preptista mean? 
It's my way of combining the words "prepster" and "fashionista."
How do you pronounce it? 
prep - Tee - sta! No, not Prep-ee-sta, not Prep-sta, Prep-Tee-sta!
Do you actually refer to yourself as "Preptista?" 
Sometimes my friends and I or my family and I will joke about it, but as a general rule, I try not to refer to myself in the third person.
At first the name didn't really have much of a significance to me, but I've kind of grown into the word and the word has grown and adapted to me. I like it because it's a representation of who I am at any given moment. Since I'm "The Preptista" the name doesn't restrict me or the blog at all. "Preptista" can mean whatever I want it to mean at any given time in my life. I define the word, not the other way around.

I hope this shed a little bit of light on the story behind the name. I always love it when people ask me questions via email, tumblr, or twitter, so please never be shy to-do so!
