while eating lindt toffee crunch bar and drinking prosecco straight from the bottle ....

I found a new blogger friend, insomniaclolita, and after reading this post on her page, I felt compelled to copy her and do it myself (:

Name the item of clothing that has been with you the longest:
I have this shirt that I rarely wear anymore because it somehow shrank up into a "short-fat" it's from the 1988 National Rollerskating Championships in Lincoln, Nebraska. It says "RACHEL" on the back.

Other than jeans, what’s an article of clothing that you can’t live without?
Men's wife beaters. I buy them in those really trashy packs of like, 8.

What was the last item of clothing you bought?
Umm ... I can't remember for sure. Probably dresses for Valentine's Day (I ended up not wearing any of the 3 dresses I bought, and opting for a black suede pencil skirt that I've had for quite awhile).

Describe your perfect winter & summer footwear:
Winter : Comfortable flat boots that aren't frumpy. Tall. Zip up. Easy to get on/off and fold your jeans into. Ridiculously tall hidden platform pumps/peep toes/patent leather. Anything heinous and over the top sexy that I can water down with tights and sweaters and long coats.

Summer : metallic leather flip flops, my white keds, brown/tan leather and suede.

And what’s a brand you wouldn’t recommend?
Candies. lol disgusting. Juicy Couture.

What’s the ugliest trend of all time?

And the best?
giant handbags.

What was your biggest fashion faux-pas?
green eyeshadow in middle school.

What colors predominate in your wardrobe?
black and gray

What are your vintage shopping strategies?
go thrift store shopping with high frequency. you're bound to find something awesome eventually.

What’s the most insane piece of clothing that you have ever owned?
Oh my god. A giant white faux fur coat. A Japanese maid outfit. Three identical pairs of shiny spandex pants from Express because they were on sale for $8 /: Yikes.

If you could describe the majority of the clothes you own in one word, what would it be?
Simple. Subtly heinous.

If anyone else does this post, let me know! I'd love to read your answers (:

ah yes, I never got the whole Ugg's trend. I hate it when California girls dress like they are in the middle of Alaska in the warm weather.
