I was re-nominated by the amazing https://hautenumbered.wordpress.com.
I’m just going to answer the questions this time, because they are really good questions. I also think it is a great way for other bloggers and human beings to get to know the real me! And not just the random person in photos 😀
1) What is your favorite piece in your closet? You can either describe it or take a picture.
Man alive! I have so many favourites that it is hard to choose but I love my 1940s dress. It is true vintage and is so special. I had to fix it up very carefully as there were a few tiny holes.
It is bright red with ….actually I’ll just put a photo up..so much easier!
You can’t see it very well in the picture, but it has the typical 1940s style waistline/area.
2) What is your favorite part about blogging?
Sharing my ideas, style and being able to write about things that matter to me. I also love reading other blogs. It is so interesting!
3) Flats or heels?
I normally wear heels. I like how they look and how they dress up an outfit. But, if I wear flats I look for ones that a dressy.
4) Favorite Magazine? Why?
Vogue. Because I love looking at the beautiful clothes!
5) What would you wear on a lazy day?
At home I normally wear clothes that don’t get dirty from the dogs hair! Her hair is like needles, it gets into every thing. So, shorts/t shirt in summer and trackies and tshirt in winter.
6) Do you think people should still look nice if they decide to go grocery shopping?
Definitely. You never know who you might meet and what might happen!
7) What are your thoughts on wearing leggings as pants?
Big no no. Only ok if you are wearing a dress or long shirt over the top. They are just as bad as someone wearing stockings with only a tshirt and nothing else.
8) Should a nails be manicured at all times? Or at least cut and filed?
I think nails should be clean and tidy. Manicured if you have the time and money!
9) Favorite fashion book/documentary/movie/series?
This amazing Vogue book:
It belongs to my mum and I use it as my main inspiration! It was printed in 1975 and the book covers from 1916! So it is quite a good book to have, Especially for someone as fashion/style obsessed as me! It’s so amazing to see the history of fashion written down. In this technological age I still prefer hard copy to e-copy! This is my first port of call when I am researching something.
10) Favorite food group? Why?
Either fruit or veges – which is really healthy!
I love potatoes and spinach. I also love apples and cherries. I’m trying to stay away from potato chips though!
11) Was/Is high school a good experience for you?
No. I had some good friends there, but most of them I haven’t kept in contact with. We’d been friends since intermediate school, so by the time we left High School we had been friends for 7 years. I think we were still friends out of convenience, just so we’d have people to sit with at lunch times. The main reason why I had a bad experience at high school was because I was quite badly bullied by this stupid boy who hated me because I rejected him. After I rejected him he started calling me fat (which was not true, because I was like a stick insect ), spread rumours about me being easy and was just plain awful.
I was glad to leave school and head off to University. I’ve never looked back since.
