A: What accessories do you wear everyday?
Any sort of necklace, a flowery headband, sunglasses, a bag

B: What is your beauty routine?
Aveeno Ageless face cream for bed, and aromatherapy body lotion to help me relax

C: What was the last item of clothing (for yourself) that you purchased?
Today I went thrifting with Chelsea and Connie and purchased a few truly amazing items, particularly two vintage sequined dresses and a satin Universal Studios: Back To The Future jacket.  Epic.

D: Do you use a dresser, closet, or both?
I have an armoire and a closet.

E: What type of earrings are in your ears right now?
None 🙂 I rarely wear them, although I’m trying to get more.

F: What type of figure do you have (measurements)?
Pretty bony and skinny, but also broad.  Mom tells me I have the shoulders of a German swimmer.

G: Do you wear glasses?
I should but I don’t.  I need to get my prescription done.

H: What type of handbag do you carry?
Black Vera Bradley hobo bag that I’ve had for over two years. I will carry it until it falls apart.

I: What is your ideal style?
Mary-Kate Olsen crossed with Katie Holmes on top of Sienna Miller.

J: What is your favorite brand of jeans?
Depends. I love J.Crew jeans, but sometimes they cut me off weird. Old Navy jeans are awesome. To be a brand whore, I’ll say I love People’s Liberation and J Brand

K: Do you wear knee-hi stockings?
Nah.  I can’t go for the schoolgirl look.

L: Do you *have* to wear matching lingerie?
No way.  

M: Do you wear makeup?
Usually more often in the wintertime, but I always try and put on concealer, mascara, a little blush and lip balm.

N: Do you wear nightgowns?
Nah.  Boxer shorts and a tank top are my go-to gear.

O: What outerwear do you put on when going out on a typical winters day?
Either my white puffer I got at the Gap (although I may trade that in for a warmer sherpa jacket from J.Crew) or if I’m dressing up I’ll go with my camel-colored car coat or bright red lady day coat from J.Crew.  And a scarf.

P: What is your favorite perfume?
I ADORE Lancome’s Magnifique.  But right now I’d love to own the new one by Chanel, Mademoiselle L’eau.

Q: Is your motto “quality over quantity” when it comes to clothing and accessories?
I tend to buy maybe one or two trend pieces a year and wear them with classic pieces that I’ve had for years.  I invest in the every day pieces like cardigans and coats and jeans that I know i’ll have for a long time.  the one thing I go silly bananas over is heels.  I own way too many heels.

R: Do you wear rain boots?
No but I really need them.  I own Uggs!

S: Do you wear socks or slippers when your feet get cold?
Of course.  

T: Do you have a set of travel luggage?
No, my dad just gives me UCONN travel gear and I’m set with that.

U: What is your daily uniform?
If I don’t have work, I wear any sort of jeans, interesting top, a cardigan, and a blazer with flats since I have to walk a lot.  If I have work, nice jeans and a nice shirt or a sundress.

V: If you are married, did you wear a veil with your wedding dress? If not, how did you do your hair?
I can’t think about that stuff now!

W: Do you wear a watch?
Nope, too much effort for me.

X: What item of clothing always makes you feel beautiful?
Not sure.  But I do have this white dress from Forever21 that makes me feel pretty amazing whenever I put it on with strappy shoes.

Y: What is your favorite type of yarn?
Cashmere of course!

Z: Do you prefer zippers or buttons?
Buttons, but without the zipper I’d be stuck with just jeans and button downs and that’s not fun.
