Describe your personal style.
Umm... I don't know...casual drapey mixes of volume wearable avante garde dark nautical parisian japanese dreamer

What are the staples in your wardrobe?
denim, black and white t-shirts, black drapey jersey cardigan, jackets, slim bottoms, boots

What’s your signature look?
black and drapey? i don't think i have a signature look.

Who is your fashion muse?
i know it's cliche in the 'blogging world' but emmanuelle alt hands down. she does everything right, all the time, and makes me not afraid of aging.

Favourite purchase of all time?
ummm... hard to say. i can't pick one. probably a tie between the y's boots i got in tokyo and my rick owens drkshdw waxed denim jacket. both i had loved for a long time and thought i would never find again, but made it to me somehow.

Biggest splurge.
everything over $200 is a splurge. "biggest" splurge i guess would be my isabel marant handbag.

What’s your beauty routine?
lots of stuff. i fell in love with shu uemura's moisture products while in japan and found that it has helped my skin a lot, so i'm currently using those, a dermamed cleanser, and from time to time i use dr. hauschka steam bath and clay mask. i want to find some 'preventative' anti-aging products though.

What jewelry do you never take off?
i don't wear jewelry at home. my 3 pieces i always wear (but not all at once- only one at a time) are my skull necklace from jon, my bird skull necklace, and the thorn earrings my mom got me for xmas.

What are you wishing for?
a lot of things. especially a new handbag. i always start to save and then other things come up. tied with the ann demeulemeester boots on my column to the left. i was 'thisclose' to bidding on a pair on ebay but they ended at $1500 :(

What are your obsessions?
shoes, rick owens, those damn demeulemeester boots and this spring's sandals.

i have to tag 10 people?! i'm following -h's example and tagging 5: thesearchforchic, thenewblack, elenita, misocrafty, minirobot

i will have to notify you tomorrow because i'm tired and have to wake up early for a knitting class tomorrow! yippie! i can't wait to learn new stitches.

Le Bouton said...

choosing emmanuelle alt because she makes you not afraid to age. YES!!!
she looks like she lives.

Make sure to check amazon, bonanzle and etsty before paying ebay's high prices due to their two outrageous fee increases and their forced Paypal policies in the recent months.

AVOID ebay like the plague and BEWARE of Paypal!!!

Don’t forget to read your ammended Paypal User Agreement. Paypal (owned by ebay, can now withhold any users funds for up to 180 days at Paypal’s “sole discretion”. Want to fight the withholding of your funds?…good luck with that. Paypal is judge, jury and executioner.

Cash to spare...interesting thought.

Stephanie said...

chloe- thanks! i had those on my watch list but i just can't afford them right now. :(

-h: yes! i love knitting with chunky yarn because you get results so quickly

lebouton: yes! i also like that she isn't afraid to wear things twice or three times, etc. she WEARS HER clothes- they are a working wardrobe not just 'costumes'

brook&lyn: haha, i know right. i wish i had some.
