Fashion Meme

This is a meme from Emma at Charming the Birds from the Trees.
Any guys who may have shown up here can skip this.

A: What accessories do you wear everyday? I at least wear earrings every day, usually hoops or dangly ones. And my wedding and engagement rings, of course. Do they count as accessories?

B: What is your beauty routine? I'm not sure how routine it is, but at some point I manage to accomplish showering, styling my hair, dressing, and applying make-up. :^)

C: What was the last item of clothing (for yourself) that you purchased? I think it was at Christmas when I bought a long skirt and matching fitted jacket in black velvet and a long sleeve cream lace shirt that was fully lined except for the sleeves (at Walmart!-wonders never cease.)

D: Do you use a dresser, closet, or both? Both. A large dresser and half of a large closet, but I think I have more momentos and photographs in my closet than clothes.

E: What type of earrings are in your ears right now? Gold dangle earrings with gold and amber colored beads.

F: What type of figure do you have? I am short with a small bone structure and have too much leftover baby weight, so to the average person I'm probably an average size short person.

G: Do you wear glasses? Only for the shortest time possible until I can get my contacts in in the morning. The eye doctor actually said that contacts like mine should only be worn for 12 hours a day. Who's he kidding? I wear mine 16-20 hours and they're doing great!

H: What type of handbag do you carry? For the past several years I've been carrying oversized purses that can double as a diaper bag. My favorite is my pink denim bag. none of them have brand names.

I: What is your ideal style? Ideal? As in, I get to set the trends? I love Edwardian clothes, and pretty much all of the clothing styles from 1800-1915, and forties clothes, but they can keep the weird corsets and stuff. Realistically, I love long ankle length skirts that are A line, or floaty fabrics or twirly; and sleeveless sheath dresses and beautiful watercolor or floral fabrics, as well as boot cut jeans.

J: What jewelry are you wearing right now? The dangle earrings, and my wedding and engagement rings.

K: Do you wear knee-hi stockings? I hate nylons and avoid them as much as possible, so if I have to wear them, and knee-high nylons, or regular knee-highs can work, then I'm definitely wearing them.

L: Do you *have* to wear matching lingerie? I would in a perfect world, but in this one, I'm on a budget. :^)

M: Do you wear makeup? If yes, what products do you use? Foundation, blush or bronzer, lipstick, eye liner (usually), eye shadow, mascara, sometimes loose powder

N: Do you wear nightgowns? Brrr! Not if I can help it; flannel PJs are the best! I would in the summer if I had a pretty one that was modest enough to cook breakfast in.

O: What outerwear do you put on when going out on a typical winters day? Typical? Did I mention that I live in the South. Typical may lean in favor of none at all, but if it's cold, my khaki field coat or long wool knit sweater usually do the trick.

P: What is your favorite perfume? I've had lots of favorites in the past, including Tea Rose, but none of them are probably true perfumes. I tend toward fruity or citrusy or vanilla scents. White florals give me an instant headache.

Q: Is your motto "quality over quantity" when it comes to clothing and accessories? Not really. I've worn too many different sizes in the past few years.

R: Do you wear rain boots? No, but I do have duck shoes that I wear on muddy days in the garden.

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

T: Do you have a set of travel luggage? Used to. I think most of the pieces are still around. We've got lots of luggage, but not much in the "sets" idea.

U: What is your daily uniform? In cold months, jeans and a nice sweater and in warmer months dresses if I'm not nursing, more capris and long cotton skirts with short sleeve knit tops if I am.

V: If you are married, did you wear a veil with your wedding dress? If not, how did you do your hair? I had a floor length veil attached to a rose wreath, but no face veil.

W: Do you wear a watch? Not since college.

X: What item of clothing always makes you feel eXtremely beautiful? My short fitted denim jacket, right now. And my lace shirt.

Y: What is your favorite type of yarn? The kind I get on sale.

Z: Do you prefer zippers or buttons? I like buttons best on blouses and jackets, because front zippers don't lay as smoothly, but zippers on skirts and dresses, because they do give a smoother look.

Let me know if you give it a try!
