Survey Says...Tag! You're It!


What is your current obsession?:
definitely purple-diary.com I don't know why I find pictures naughty French strangers so fascinating but I do.

What is your horoscope & do you relate to it?:
Cancer and for the most part very much so! I'm super emotional, I love pearls, I freak out if anyone is critical of my mother, I fall in love very easily and become absolutely for life fiercely devoted to nearly everyone I love even if they are mean to me, my boobs are my best body part, I'm manipulative and insecure, I love kids and I have a roundish baby doll face. These are key traits to Cancers. But unlike most cancers I do not save or earn a lot of money. I spend it like its water.

What are you wearing today?:
well it is bed time so my new la perla pink boxer short bottoms (I got them on clearance for like $14 at the Saks outlet!) and my "vintage t" (from Target) sweet liberty bubble gum- also pink.

What is the last thing you bought?:
missbehave magazine, a backless safari print dress from j crew, and some funky accessories from forever 21.

What do you think about the person who tagged you?:
Erika is the prettiest, most stylish fashion blogger on the planet. Check out her blog Fashion Chalet!

What’s for dinner?:
I had grilled chicken with grilled chopped tomatoes, onions and green peppers plus a baked potato and my current favorite soda diet fresca!

What’s your favorite decade, fashion wise?:
Probably the mid-sixties to mid-seventies. I look at YSL's Le Smoking collection and all that Helmut Newton was doing for French Vogue and that is just IT. You can see the passion and the brilliance in the work. And of course in that time period- Edie & Andy, the whole factory scene, Loulou de la Falaise! And Lagerfeld at Chloe! I just love the mix of androgyny & feminine glamour with all those sadomasochistic subtexts drenched in decadence. So much of It is pure art and such a reflection of life as it is and as it should be! I could faint with all of the emotions those designs and images stir up in in me--I can't imagine living it!

What are your must haves for summer?:
Minidresses, flip-flops, colorful silky hair scarves and always, ALWAYS giant sunnies!

What would you love to be able to afford?:
balenciaga bags, christian louboutins, subscriptions to Paris Vogue & Women's Wear Daily, my own apartment

What is your favorite piece of clothing from your own wardrobe?:
I don't really have a favorite piece. I pretty much dislike everything I own in terms of clothing right now. Not even joking. Probably my DVF wrap dress because I love how it feels. The fabric is just dreamy.

What is your dream job?:
celebrity.

What’s your favorite magazine?:
Vogue, Teen Vogue, Missbehave, Paris Vogue, Fashion Week Daily, Fashion Week Mini, i-D, and British Elle

What do you consider a fashion faux pas?:
Ed Hardy & the entire Christian Audigier family of brands.

Describe your personal style:
The quirky girl next door. Restless and a little bit boring. I honestly don't really have personal style which is sad coming from someone who loves the fashion industry as much as I do.

Which Beatle is your favorite?:
Paul. Obviously. But then Ringo.

What are you proud of?:
My family and my friends especially my mom!

I can totally relate to the hating everything you own feeling...how is it that w/ drawers and a closet overflowing w/ clothes, every day I do the "I have nothing to wear"? What gives!? ;)

My dream job? Heiress. I love how we long to be things that are most definitely out of the question. Though who knows...someday you may be a celebrity, and someday I may be an heiress. If dreams come true... :)
