Ze Fashion Tag...

Soooo, I wasn't "officially" tagged in this but I saw it on things the books forgot... and thought it looked fun, so here we go. I haven't ever done a fashion-related tag so this is kinda a new deal for me!

1) How would you describe your style?

Hmm. Describing my style...*thinks* Well, conservative/modest for sure. Putting into further description, ehh, unique/preppy/bright/boho/vintage/retro/classy?  A verrry small sampling in photo:

2)What are your wardrobe staples?

Jean skirt, cowboy boots, cognac faux leather jacket, skinny jeans and tunics. Also, I love scarves.  

3)Most expensive item you own?

I'm guessing this means clothing-wise? Hm, not really sure there. Most things in my closet were gifts from family or thrifted/yard sale items.

 4) Most wanted item?

 Right now? A nice, LONG (mid-calf to ankle length) maxi-dress which isn't a tube top or sleeveless, and is in a bright, summery color.  

5) Favorite Designer?

Well, as far as BRANDS go, I am not really picky. As long as it's made well and doesn't cost too much, I'm good! 

6)How much do you spend on clothing?

Not very much. I am a cheapskate when it comes to clothes and accessories and most of my wardrobe came from yard sales and thrift stores. Also, giftees from my awesome family. HOWEVER. I do occasionally splurge and buy myself a dress or skirt from a department store. 

7)Favorite places to shop?

THRIFT STORES and YARD SALES! As far as department stores go, Sears, JC Penny, and Belk, these days. I don't really get the chance to go out clothes shopping and when I do it's usually at one of these three.  

8) Favorite fragrance?

Bath and Body Works' Black Amethyst. My all-time favorite body spray scent. Miss Dior from Sephora is really nice too but I haven't ever bought any of that....just got a little sample in the mail and liked it. *Teehee* 

9)Favorite way to have your hair?

My default hairstyle for every day excursions and life around the house/'farm' is a simple, messy topknot/bun thrown together in a scrunchie. Not very flattering, but it's the most practical since I have pretty long hair which can easily get in the way. 

For when I go out, however, I like it either down with a hairband, or in a side braid.

10)What is your go-to outfit when you have no idea what to wear?

Depends on the mood I'm in and where I'm going. If I'm just staying home for the day I'll throw on yoga pants and a loose sweater or t-shirt. If I go out, it will likely be a skirt and blouse... with either Sperrys or cowboy boots. Or sandals.

11)Most prized possession?

Clothing wise? Maybe my jean my Ariat cowboy boots. :D Those things have lasted for years now and have gone through both blizzard and heat wave, mud and classy conference. I'm amazed at their durability!

FINALLY, the part where I tag some people....

Leave me a comment with your fashion tag post, I'd love to see it!



  1. Thanks 4 tagging me:):) I'll try to do this as soon as possible!!

  2. Haha very nice! We have much of the same style. I'll put my post here when I get it up. :)

  3. *cracks up* Thank you, Leah, but...uh...xD I doubt I could answer most of these. I don't really care about fashion stuff. xD I could answer the hair one and the "wardrobe staples" one, but that'd be about it. :P

    As for hair: my *favorite* way is probably braids or my hair down with pieces from the front pulled back. But default is nothing or just in a hair tie. xD

    And "staples" would be jeans and t-shirts. Heheh.

    1. Haha, okay gotcha. ;) I didn't really know if you liked this kind of thing or not but just figured I'd tag you anyway in case you did. :D

  4. Thanks for tagging me! I'll get it up soon.

  5. Hey so I was wondering if you could like me to make a header for this blog!?! If you say no that's totally fine, but I just thought that I would ask=) If you do want one just tell me what kind of colors you want, etc,!
