UPDATED: I think we all need a break from the whining. THE WHINING.

Last week, Dutch Donut Girl was tagged to do a fashion meme.
1. If you aren't reading her, you be missin out fo' sho.
2. We all know I'm a fashion fox. So, it's only wise that I do it too...

What's your current obsession?

Twisty poses in yoga.

I cannot get enough of them.

What is your horoscope and do you relate?

I'm a Virgo. Oh, yes, oh yes, I am a Virgo. I don't really believe or disbelieve in astrology but my personality very much matches the Virgo description.

What are you wearing today?

Brown cords and a blue t-shirt and a grey sweater, yeah. HOT.

What's the last thing you bought

The Carrie Bradshaw/5 year old dress.

It's this dress from Anthropologie, except mine is striped on top (navy and cream) and bright green on the bottom.

What do you think about the last person who tagged you?

What don't I think about Dutch Donut Girl? Well, unfortunately we have squabbled over James Blake - but I think our friendship will make it past this blip.

Updated: She is going to be a bride's maid at our wedding though. I am thinking she is going to wear her hot red dress...

What's for dinner?

Gluten-free fettuccine with ricotta and pumpkin sauce - and perhaps peas.

What's your favourite decade, fashion wise?

I dig the 50s:

What are your must haves for Summer?

Sundresses - I adore them. Also, a very basic black skirt that can be worn anywhere whether it be playing tennis, playing in the dirt, riding a bike, going out to dinner, or taking a walk in the park on a date.

What's your favourite piece of clothing from your wardrobe?

I have this ridiculous dress that I bought in Germany a while ago that I adore and have only worn twice. It's bright pink with darker pink polka dots and I LOVE IT.

I have a t-shirt that is so special I can no longer wear it. It was my brother's when he was a kid and has now been washed so many times that the cotton may as well be butter.

Both did not make the trek with me to Australia

What's your dream job?

To write a column for a newspaper, Marley & Me style.

What's your favourite magazine?

Hm. I love Gourmet. I like the New Yorker for the cartoons, Popular Science for the new inventions section, People for the pure joy of celebrity watch (ahem, American People, Australian People is porn - that was an awkward lesson...but learnt!).

What do you consider a fashion faux pas?

TIGHTS ARE NOT PANTS. LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS (unless you're under 10 and then they are pants). Also, fellas. Fellas, do not wear a brown belt with black shoes - I mean, c'mon!

Which is your favourite Beatle?

George. The quiet Beatle

What are you most proud of?

My parents. They raised me right, not perfectly.

I am not big into tagging but I want Burn to participate. And encourage anyone else to participate.


  1. Sh*t, I have to go to school right now but I'll real read this post as soon as I'm back. Can't wait!

  2. Fellow George Harrison fan! You are a good egg...don't contort your body too badly in yoga...hahaha!

  3. Oh, I loved this post. That Carrie Bradshaw dress is sexy!

    Wait a second, you play in the dirt while wearing a black skirt? Sounds like fun, I want to join you :)

    The tights and leggings thing is so true.

    I'm so glad you did this :-)

  4. DDG - Of course you can join me! Seriously, say no to leggings! :)

    Organic Meatbag - I'll try! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I LOVE the 50s! And your dinner sounds delicious. I hope Burn plays!

  6. Anthropologie is so fun ... expensive, but fun! : )

  7. Chris - me too! I love a good sweater set :)

    24@heart - I know! i love there stuff but have to shop exclusively from the sale section.

  8. i'm a virgo. and i agree with most of those things...mostly tights and those yoga poses.
