Fashion asks, I answer.

Well, I blew it on Holidailies. My day job takes a lot out of the tank and by the time I get home, the last thing I want to do is sit at a computer again. It’s the thought that counts!

But hey, Sunday Stealing!

What season has your favorite looks? Spring, although I look better in sweaters.

Formal or casual? Formal, or at least business casual. Or at least not jeans. I don’t like jeans. I’m of an age where they are no longer comfortable and when I’m not at work I much prefer pants. Black pants. Lots and lots of black pants.

Thrift store, boutique, or online? Boutique, if by boutique you mean Nordstrom Rack, Macy’s, and Marshalls.

What’s your favorite decade for fashion? For women, probably the turn of the century. This century, I mean. For men, the 80s. Miami Vice, to be specific. The 80s were the closest American men have ever come to chic on the daily. They wore color. Color! On American men! Now? Oh, dear gawd, enough with the olive cargo shorts, ratty t-shirts, ball caps, and brown flip-flops. Flip-flops suck, okay? That goes for women, too. They’re for the beach or the pool, not city streets. Of course, if you want cellulitis, by all means, splash around in dog feces, rotting food, rat blood, and heaven-knows-what that greenish-brown liquid is by the curb.

Back when men were men and women wore shoulder pads.

Do you like to accessorize? I would if I knew what I was doing. That’s my weak spot.

What does your basic outfit look like? V-neck, pants, boots, tote.

What piece of clothing do you spend your money on the most? Boots and shoes.

Do you wear hats? No. They mess up my hair. When it’s cold I wear headbands.

What is your opinion on wearing socks and sandals together? Don’t. Ever.

What colors do you like to wear? Black, red, purple, royal blue, hunter green, burgundy, occasionally white, but under a blazer or cardigan. Fall is my best for colors.

What are some of the strangest outfits you have seen? Pretty much whatever Lady Gaga wore ten years ago.

What fashions do you hate? Oh, please do not get me started on this whole resurgence of poofy sleeves, high necks, and tiny florals. There is nothing more ridiculous than a grown woman walking around looking like a cross between Holly Hobbie and Laura Ingalls, except for maybe a grown woman walking around looking like a cross between Holly Hobbie and Laura Ingalls while wearing white tennis shoes. Enough with the tennis shoes and dresses.

What are your favorite styles? I like lean lines and timeless elegance. And wrap dresses. And girly Date Night outfits. Also, tropical, but not beach-comber. Think cruise or resort. Visit my URSTYLE profile for a taste of what I would wear if I had unlimited funds and the body for it.

What do you think of body piercing? I try not to. Not a fan.

Do you like dyed hair? Sure, if it’s right for the person’s skin tone.
