The ABC Fashion Meme

I'm still stressing out over things I can't do much about (mostly the fate of my upcoming vacation, which has connections through BKK), so here is a meme instead. This has to do more or less with fashion and was ganked from lots of folks, most recently firecat

A: What accessories do you wear every day?
Two rings (one on each hand) and a watch.

B: What is your beauty routine?
Uh, I wash regularly and I brush my hair.

C: What was the last item of clothing (for yourself) that you purchased?
A cranberry red knit dress.

D: Do you use a dresser, closet, or both?
I have a walk-in closet. It has one set of open shelves on it, which I use for in season pants and tops. The out of season pants and tops are in a few drawers of a chest which also lives in the closet.

E: What type of earrings are in your ears right now?
I rarely wear earrings - pretty much only for major dress-up events. I am one of a very few women in my age group who don't have pierced ears.

F: What type of figure do you have?
Pear-shaped. Your basic hour-glass in which the sand has sunk.

G: Do you wear glasses?
Only when I want to see, which is pretty much all the time that I'm awake.

H: What type of handbag do you carry?
The Le Sportsac deluxe everyday bag has the perfect arrangement of pockets, in my opinion. My current one is a sort of cutesy print with Beatrix Potter overtones. But I've used the identical style in various fabrics over the years, from solid black to red with white polka dots, to a dark paisley.

I: What is your ideal style?
I'm a bit schizo about style. I like a very classic look for work (and work-related social events), meaning suits or shirtdresses. I'm inclined to be far more flamboyant on my own time.

J: What is your favorite brand of jeans?

K: Do you wear knee-hi stockings?

L: Do you *have* to wear matching lingerie?
I don't think I own matching lingerie.

M: Do you wear makeup?
Rarely. It can be fun for parties but there is no reason for it for normal days.

N: Do you wear nightgowns?
Sometimes. I used to like the sort of boring flannel nightgowns that obscure every secondary sexual characteristic. Mostly I sleep au naturel and wear pajamas if I need to be respectable (e.g. at hostels).

O: What outerwear do you put on when going out on a typical winters day?
For work, I wear a trenchcoat with a (removable) wool lining. Otherwise, an REI parka.

P: Perfume?
I used to wear perfume all the time and favored the "oriental" type with lots of sandalwood and patchouli and such (e.g. Tabu, Emeraude, Opium). But I've had allergy issues for the past couple of years so don't wear perfume much any more.

Q: Is your motto "quality over quantity" when it comes to clothing and accessories?
Yes, for serious clothes. I've sometimes bought cheap trendy odds and ends, but not in great quantities.

R: Do you wear rain boots?
No, though I've been tempted by some cute ones I've seen.

S: Do you wear socks or slippers when your feet get cold?
I wear socks most of the time. I wish I could find slippers I like.

T: Do you have a set of travel luggage?
I own a lot of backpacks and a duffel bag. Some of them were made by the same company.

U: What is your daily uniform?
Suit, shirt, interesting lapel pin to keep from being totally dull.

V: If you are married, did you wear a veil with your wedding dress? If not, how did you do your hair?
I'm not married. If I did get married, I would wear a veil.

W: Do you wear a watch?
Yes. I generally wear a cheap drugstore watch since that is something not to worry about while traveling. But I have several fine watches, as well. (My grandfather was in the business.)

X: What item of clothing always makes you feel beautiful?
Not a single item of clothing but I have formal wear that I think makes me look spectacular, especially when I mousse my hair and wear my extravagant dangly Lunch at the Ritz earrings.

Y: What is your favorite type of yarn?
Lamb's Pride, which is a merino/angora mix.

Z: Do you prefer zippers or buttons?
Velcro :) Seriously, jeans demand zippers and shirts need buttons.
