Saw this up on Luxury Garage Sale and wanted to see what I’d say to these questions:
1.) What are 5 fashion must haves for every woman?
A: LBD, sparkly flats, A leather tote with adjustable straps and lots of compartments, a sentimental piece of jewelry, bobbypins for versatile hair styling.
2.) How would you describe your personal style?
Grown-up make believe? I’m really inspired by film costume design, especially anything Colleen Atwood or Eiko Ishioka creates. My style is very easily influenced by whatever I happen to be reading, watching, or gaming at the time. I like to have a dash of whimsy with whatever I’m wearing, so I have a lot of slightly gaudy costume jewelry and gothic lace tops in my collection.
3.) What fashion trend do you strongly dislike?
A: Those glasses you see hipsters wear that look like your dad’s? With the bar across the top so it looks like you have unibrow? Yeah, it wasn’t a good look on my pops in the early 90s, and it looks hideous now on young women.
4.) Who is your style icon and why?
A: This is hard to say! I feel like my style changes a lot, but I am constantly inspired by characters. I think I have my mom to thank for exposing me to a wide array of films and fashion. She is the brassiest broad I know and her confidence in whatever she’s wearing is inspiring.
5.) Who is your favorite person to shop with and why?
A: Does vodka count? I really love online shopping, just browsing through catalogs of looks and pieces before I decide on any one item.
6.) What is your absolute favorite fashion item you own?
A: My werewolf’s head clutch by Iron Fist. I got it for Halloween last year when I went as Red Riding Hood. It’s scary and badass and no one I know has anything like it.
7.) If you could buy any fashion item right now, what would it be?
A: A black Celine luggage tote. It’s a really elegant looking piece and the curves of the piping running up the sides evokes a woman’s shape. It’s so sexy!
Cool guy at work who I’ve become friends with is actually 37. THAT IS SO OLD! I thought he was like 30 tops. So I guess, um, props to him? Ugh. I feel weird now that I’ve befriended someone 15 years older than me. Are there ANY 20-somethings at this damn place besides the other 2 girls I know? I had dreams in my youth of going out for happy hour with my coworkers. Swing and a miss.
