I found the Meme a few weeks ago and can't remember where- but I think anyone who has the desire should go ahead and do it.

What accessories do you wear everyday? Engagement ring, wedding ring and wedding day surprise ring.

What is your beauty routine? I don't have a real routine...
AM: Shower and If I am being good wash face with Philosophy face wash. Put in leave in conditioner (potion No. 9 or Infusium) Then dry hair with diffuser, brush teeth and moisturize. Appy makeup after dressing and then pop out the door, grab a soy latte and hop on the bus.
If I am being bad: wake up after snoozing for an hour. Watch the today show until the last minute possible. Throw on something random and then drive top work and pay 16-23$ for parking.
PM: Wash my face and brush my teeth…on my good days.

What was the Last item of clothing you bought: wide leg cuff pants and Blue shirt from gap

Do you use a dresser, closet, or both? Two closets, dresser and countless baskets and piles- it is a disaster! When will we find a house!!!!???

What type of earrings are in your ears right now? I have never pierced a thing- Thank you!
What type of figure do you have? Slightly curvy, slightly athletic, short, small chested.
Do you wear glasses? When I drive or watch a movie.
What type of handbag do you carry? Lately I have been carrying my new Burberry tote- but I switch it up between my D&B tassel tote, my kate spade and my Diane Von Furstenburg navy and green carry-on tote.
What is your ideal style? Classic. Preppy. (obviously)
What jewelry are you wearing right now? My engagement ring, wedding ring, my surprise wedding day ring and pearls.
Do you wear knee-hi stockings?No….gosh no-if you mean those walgreens see-through type trouser socks. Now knee high argyle socks-That is another story- those are a Yes yes-with wellies and boots whenever I can!
Do you *have* to wear matching lingerie? No- nothing matches any more…
Do you wear makeup? Yes, but sometimes I am too lazy even though I look like hell.
Do you wear nightgowns? I have a couple that I wear when I am feeling saucy, but otherwise I am kind of a tank top and pj pants type of girl.
What outerwear do you put on when going out on a typical winter's day? Well this is Chicago, so lately I have been wearing my puffy vest underneath my Beneton dress coat with my cream colored scarf because I have self imposed the ONE Burberry at a time rule so I can’t wear my classic scarf at the same time as my new tote. ( I need to buy a proper winter coat!)
What is your favorite perfume? Lately I have been wearing Pure Grace, by Philosophy but want to expand my scents to include something notable and classic.
Is your motto "quality over quantity"? I would much rather have a closet full of quality pieces and accent them with cheapie trendy accents each year as they come and go. I prefer the quality- you feel it when you wear it!
Do you wear rain boots? I wear my Utilitarian English Wellies and I love them.
Do you wear socks or slippers when your feet get cold? I have the restoration Hardware foot duvet slippers as well as leather bottom cable knit Ralph Lauren slippers- love them both but am tempted to check out ugg slippers.
Do you have a set of travel luggage? Yes it is Diane Von Furstenberg Navy blue with white piping and accented with white cane/lattice print. With a splash of green on the carry on tote bag. My dad was carrying it into the lake house last summer and stopped and said, “you have such pretty things!” I was almost crying I was laughing so hard…gee I wonder where I get my preppiness from? (Dad thinks the only colors I should wear are navy and white.)
What is your daily uniform? Polo or other collared shirt and skirt in the summer, skinny jeans, boots and preppy sweater in the fall and a mess of terrible yet warm and comfy outfits in the winter.
If you are married, did you wear a veil with your wedding dress? Yes, my best friend made me one, but then I saw my husbands mother’s veil that I thought was the most beautiful thing ever- so I wore that- and it matched the dress and theme perfectly.
Do you wear a watch? No- I have one that my mother gave me. She got it when she was younger and living in Switzerland- but it needs to be fixed and will be expensive so I have been lazy. I have had my eye on a discreet Burberry ladies watch that I think would suit me.
What item of clothing always makes you feel extremely beautiful? Well made coats- I was built for coats- for some reason I always look fantastic in coats! Maybe it is my darn swimmers shoulders! And skirts in the summer... I live in skirts!
What is your favorite type of yarn? I love the feel of that baby yarn, but Cashmere sure is lovely!
Do you prefer zippers or buttons? Probably Buttons- they lay better and keep the shape of clothing without bunching and bending.
