(Usually) comfortable and ‘cute’. Although some people (my boyfriend in particular), would probably say it has some degree of an ‘alternative’ twist.
2) What are your wardrobe staples:
Short shorts, skinny jeans / jeggings, oversized shirts and black, chunky, thick-heeled boots (usually up to half calve or just below the knee, buckles, lace ups etc). You can see a picture of the first pair I ever brought, here.
3) Most expensive item in your closet:
The most expensive item that I have personally brought is actually only $50, I know I’m such a big spender. The title of ‘most expensive item’ belongs to the boots (mentioned in the previous question), but also to two other pairs of boots that I have brought for the same price.
I also have an Aunt who occasionally buys me clothes / purses for birthdays / Christmases who is rather well off and has brought me a number of “brand” items (ie. Guess Wallet, Mimco pouch etc) which I know have cost me more than my boots.
4) Most wanted item:
Oh man, this is a dangerous question because I could write a whole blog post about my most wanted items. At the moment I'm having a massive love for animal printed things or animal themed jewellery, particularly cats & birds. For example, the cat blouse posted in my inspiration post and some of the following items:
5) Favourite designer:
This is an awkward question for me as I actually don’t have a favourite designer, nor really know any besides a few of the major ones (ie. McQueen), probably because I don’t follow runway fashion / high fashion / whatever etc. For the sake of answering this question, I do believe the designers at ‘Baby, the Stars Shine Bright’ and ‘Angelic Pretty’ turn out some amazing dresses, despite the fact I would never wear them (or be able to afford them).
6) How much do you spend on clothes:
Personally I don’t feel a lot. This is not to say I do not buy clothes, rather I hunt for bargains (for example, I spent $15 a few days ago and brought a dress, romper, cardigan, shirt for my sister & a pair of earrings which would have cost around $100 if they had been brought for the retail price on their price tags). Personally I would say I almost definitely spend less then $500 a year, maybe even less than $350. The fact that the person before me stated a ‘few grand’, makes me feel pretty good about this.
7) What are your favourite places to shop:
Thrift stores definitely and any kind of shoe store. I’m also a fan of (window-shopping) online.
8) Favourite fragrance:
Another difficult question for me as I don’t actively shop for fragrances. My Aunt (the one mentioned a few questions ago) brought me a little set of 4 perfumes in diamond shaped bottles which is what I use.
9) What is your favourite way to do your hair:
I can do my hair anyway and as long as I have a fringe (preferably a blunt fringe, but a side fringe is fine too) that looks good, I am happy. That said, my favourite way of wearing my hair is as follows:
If I’m going somewhere casual it’s just skinny jeans / jeggings with an oversized slouchy shirt.
11) One fashion trend you wish would come back or stay:
To be honest, there isn’t one. I wish people would just wear what they want. That said, I would love to see more love for the more ‘natural’ approach to make up (less is more, make up isn’t a necessity etc). For a while I remember seeing quite a few articles on it, but that seems to have died out lately.
12) Show us the most prized possession in your wardrobe:
This would take so long to do as I don’t have any ‘outfit’ shots (note to self: start taking them). I’ll do a more in depth post answering this question and link it!
So what conclusion did I come to ? I apparently love boots, thrifting and being overall cheap in regards to fashion. Not entirely sure if that's helpful or not.
