Debbie, at Suburb Sanity did a post the other day called Fashion in the Suburbs. It just really cracked me up and I had to steal the idea to do my own version. (It isn't plagiarism if you say where you got the idea from, is it?)
1. Who is your fashion icon?
I've always been fashionably challenged. I've NEVER gone with the styles or the latest trends. (After all, you can only go SO far with black). Although my looks have have varied over the years, what stands out the most in my mind is "The Bag Lady" look. There's nothing like a long skirt, multiple layers of length shirts and hiking boots to give you that "I bet no one else will be wearing the same outfit as I am" feeling.
And even though I still wear them, I especially LOVED my Jackie O sunglasses back in the 90's, when everyone else was wearing the John Lennon ones.
2. What piece of clothing could you NOT live without?
Well, I changed this to what accessory could you not live without? I don't see how any woman can get through the day without her lipstick stencil!
3. What is your definition of "Couture"?
According to dictionary.com it is, "being, having or suggesting the style, quality of a fashion designer; very fashionable".
I was sure it was the name of the guy on "The Dukes of Hazzard" that drove around in a pick-up truck and had a crush on Daisy Duke.
4. Your thoughts on East Style West Style.
There's way too much useless information floating around in my head, to add anything else like this.
5. Your advise on how to be comfortable in your own skin.
Don't be a Chameleon! (but don't be a Boy George either!)
