Tee Fisher has been smashing it with her site TrashBagAesthetics.com! The site, “a womens lifestyle online magazine dedicated to sneakers, urban fashion, style, trends & the everyday social blunder that plagues our daily routine,” has drawn thousands of female readers of all age ranges. Since it’s creation in 2006, TrashBag Aesthetics has provided the daily news on what’s going down in the streets of NYC and today we’re honoring the lady behind the site as a woman making history!
Stop drooling over the necklace (Yea! Hottest self-promo piece evah!) and get familiar with Tee after the jump!
1. What woman, besides your mom or grandmother, do you find inspirational?
Grace Jones: She is definitely my inspiration! She’s managed to command the scene with a dominant presence! And till this day she doesn’t let anyone intimidate her at all!
2. How did you get your start?
It all began back in 2005 after loosing my job, I then had a previous site where I basically sold goods out of my closet. And the site was then called InvadeMyCloset.com. At the end of 2007 I decided to direct my attention towards what my daily life style consists of…sneakers..jeans..and everything in between. That is when TrashBagAesthetics.com was born!
With the help of “Me,Myself & I” I basically checked out the dynamics of website layouts…and got to work! It was a long road…since 2006 to be exact! And till this day I can’t believe that I am still doing it!
Meeting great readers & leaders of the scene! Along with a few jerks in between…I love everyone on a equal level! Even if they don’t love me back! But the over all experience is waking up knowing that I don’t have to work for anyone buy myself!
4. If you could interview anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
Bob Marley! He was the man! And his music still lives on…I get goose bumps listening to him! I kid you not!
5. What part of your process is the most challenging and do you dislike the most?
Dealing with ignorant folks! I have the shortest fuse on earth! I am learning how to exercise that bad trait! Those who know me best, know that I am very confrontational – and don’t walk on egg shells! I think it always good to talk to folks and clear the air about things – whether it be good or bad! It’s life…plain & straight!

Here are a few more things you should know about Tee:
Favorite Food: Sea Food & Fried Chicken
Well the biggest misconception is that I am a viper upon first look…why? Because you seldom see me smile! Yeah, I am what you can call very serious—but an overall dork! I am also addicted to coffee, and even though I have gotten rid of my $7 dollar a day Starbucks habit, my new found love is Dunkin’ Donuts coffee…I swear there is an ingredient in that Styrofoam cup that has got me open like fiend. I love music – all types….and yeah I listen to Hip-Hop and what not…but seldom take everything I hear seriously! And that would also include folks….for example – when someone says “Lets, do lunch” – I take it seriously! So please note if you mention food…I will be doing a follow up! I work from my confines of my house, bathroom, best friends room, or anywhere else that keeps my brain mentally intact. My sleeping pattern varies….on average my sleep ranges from 3-4 hours a day until my brain taps out literally!
Blogs & Websites I Adore:
Mobliving, MISS, Female Sneaker Fiend, Hypebeast , High Snobette, Blogue, The YBF, Concreteloop….the list goes on!
Biggest Pet Peeve:
I CAN NOT STAND FAKES! Whether it be people, handbags, shoes, or anything else. Originality, decency, and respect are the codes that I live by! Seriously! I am going to put that out there first and foremost! Also I think that I mentioned it prior…but I HATE seeing folks chew food with their mouths wide open…what’s up with that?
The usual sneaker fetish, caffeine, & yea…cancer sticks! I smoke…I know it’s BAD! I watch the commercials…and all of that! So please no lecturing!
Most Likely Found Doing:
Rubbing my head…yeah I have no hair! It’s become some what my staple for a few years now.
Tee’s definitely someone I’d love to have coffee with! She keeps it REAL!
Hope you all enjoyed getting to know Tee, too!
