1. I feel infinitely better in high heels than flat shoes. It's as if the latter aren't "me" at all.

2. I didn't start wearing jeans until I was 15 and now I regret that I did. It's a "last resort" that I come to far too often.

3. I love jewelry, but when I wear it, I feel like it's restricting my movements, so I usually take it off within minutes.

4. In my early teens I was always borrowing clothes and accessories from my mom. Today we're into completely different things.

5. I own an enormous collection of cardigans due to always feeling cold.

6. I'm insanely obsessed with finding my signature perfume. However, I'm not even the type to have a signature perfume because I get tired of them very quickly.

7. Umbrella is the most underrated accessory. If it doesn't match your look, it kills it.

8. I abhor people dictating others what they should or shouldn't wear. Clothes etc. don't look the same on everyone.

9. The way I dress is completely different from my favorite designers' aesthetic.

10. I don't like watches embellished with diamonds (or anything of the sort). If it has diamonds, I don't consider it a watch but a piece of jewelry.

1. i don't carry large handbags - i hate the feeling of being weighed down. it's all little chanel flaps or bottega veneta hobos in the smallest size for me.

2. i only ever wear yellow gold, preferably 18-24k at that (i'm indian and it's what i've always been accustomed to!)

3. i love bright neon colors - i could never live in just black, gray, camel, white, etc. i avoid buying lbds. i love punching up neutrals with lime, mustard, red, orange, eye-popping pink, etc.

4. i don't wear pants at all may-september...it's all about the legs baby! my (sad 4 pairs of...) jeans are in total hibernation. i honestly prefer summer dressing to winter, as i'm always always always cold, and i love the feeling of the sun on my skin, loading up on accessories, and swanning around in silk and linen nothingness.

5. i'm not very fond of excessively girly details - ruffles, bubble hems, lots of volume - in my clothing. i'm too petite and hourglass-shaped to pull it off. i do love frivolity in my accessories, though - bring on the valentino clutches and jeweled manolos!

6. in all honesty, i think i dress more stereotypically "for the boys" than for other women, but i think it flatters my figure more. low-cut (but not vulgar) tops, body-con silhouettes, lots of leg.

7. i'm not necessarily picky about labels, but i always pay very close attention to fabrics and the seams. i like to get into the nitty-gritty construction of things, and i don't see the point of shelling out $$$ for polyester.

8. i tend to hone in on parts of my wardrobe that need revamping........and go way overboard when i do................and then justify it by telling myself i'll never buy anything in that category again right now i'm lusting after some la perla, wolford, and eres lingerie...and we all know how long lingerie lasts. sigh.

9. i love the look of fur but only in very small doses, and i refuse to buy if it's not vintage. perhaps not the most eco-conscious stance, but i am trying, and i think that overall, less consumption is certainly a good thing.

10. i like to look uptown and polished, but with a sexy undone edge. perfect red nails, but bedhead and yesterday's eyeliner. in my head, if i were a fashion city, i think i'd be milan.

i love this thread - it's so interesting to see how everyone boils down the essence of their style mantras into 10 little phrases!

1. Jeans in any colour and any style.

2. I might be bit lazy but I like clothes that I can just put on leave out the door. No, i do not mean sweatpants and sweatshirt. Lately it has been chunky knit, jeans and colorful knitted socks made by my grandmother.

3. Even tough I like simply things I allways add something quirky, it can be earrings or some jacket.

4. I hate everything TOO formal and I am against all that everybody-should-own-black dress-black blazer-etc-kind of cr*p and all those fashion rules. I think there should allways be something fun, people should walk their own way. I do not own black blazer and I am perfectly happy with that fact.

5. I usually carry the same vintage bag everywhere I go, no matter what clothes I am wearing, it goes with everything and have seen so many places in this world. It is bag that i would cry for if it gets broken.

6. I don´t own designer clothes or bags or shoes and I do not even wanna. I do not know wich designer have dsigned which shoes...etc.

7. I will never ever wear anything fur. It looks horrible (even fake fur) and makes everything look so tacky. I do not get why people wear fur...


8. Is it bad that I am almost 23-years-old but don´t know how to walk with heels??? I don´t like heels. Well, there are few exeptions but I prefer flats and flat boots.

9. I love everything selfmade, the best are chunky knit scarves from mom and colorful knitted socks that goes up to my knee made by my grandmother. Also the best necklases/earrings I onw are selfmade!

10. Lately I have been very inspired by Daria Werbowy and Irina Lazareun.

1. I wear mainly skirts and dresses and thus have two crates of tights, still haven't got enough though.
2. Cheap jewellery is a must, I lose or break stuff too easily so would be too scared to wear pricey stuff.
3. I love quick and easy make-up, big smokey eyes and berry lips (not together) Topshop's crayons are perfect and have some lovely colours.
4. I've not bitten my nails since before summer and have somehow gained over 20 nails inc varnishes.
5. I like chunky wedges and heeled boots for winter even though they get a bit slippy on wet leaves
6. I have an addiction to kurt geiger, having spent nearly £200 on a pair I can barely stand in. They are fair too beautiful to sell though.
7. H+M basics are my lifeline, the short sleeve t-shirts are best if bought a size bigger and are dead cheap.
8. I probably have as many headbands as Blair from Gossip Girl.
9. I dye my hair red and have done for ages, I really want a change now it's the new blonde but I can't give up my deep red tone, maybe chocolate brown will be next.
10. Like most I love charity shopping and have found some fabulous stuff in them, mainly the ones near my uni town

1. I am obsessed with hats. Especially vintage mens hats.
2. I never wear an outfit that I don't find comfortable.
3. I never wear jeans. Infact I don't even own any.
4. I dress like a complete hobo when I am at home and at the farm. I look like I have been raised by wolves.
5. I am always in dresses. I wear lots of smock style dresses and for some reason there is always a bow involved somehow. It is like my inner child breaking free. (more Alexa Chung than lolita though!)
6. I don't really follow trends and i have no qualms in wearing last seasons clothes. I buy things I like, not what is fashionable this season.
7. My personal style could be described as somewhat 'dreamy' and/or 'romantic' - soft silouettes, lots of pastels and soft colours, flowy, feminine etc.
8. This is really weird but I was once watching a news story about synthetic clothes melting into skin when you are in a fire so ever since then I try to only wear natural fibres incase I am in a fire
9. Lipstick makes the world go round
10. Sometimes I can't decide what to wear so I wear it all. I look like someone that has exceeded the baggage limit at the airport so has to wear all of their clothes at once

2. living in a country with 1 season only, the fall, my summer wardrobe basically fits into 1 cabin-size suitcase.

4. skinny jeans, no bootcut, no flare
5. I love smoky eyes, but don't wear lipstick
6. scarves are the best accessory, I own LOADS of them
7. it cringes when I see people wearing a scarf, but not cutting out the lable with the care instructions
8. I love the masculin side of my wardrobe: boyfriend blazers, clean cut shirts and trousers, brogues, trilby hats....

1. I usually get dressed twice in the morning. First I'll put on a nice skirt and tights and suddenly I'll change my mind and put on jeans and a t-shirt


2. I love sundresses from the 60s and 50s, they make me feel pretty and flatter my body shape.

3. I am too easily influenced and if i watch a movie and love it, I will most likely dress like a character the next day.

4. I often find myself overdressing, it's like some evil curse, a skirt and pearls and all of a sudden I look like I'm ready for gala.

5. I kind of despise shoes, so i love it when summer arrives and I can finally wear my thongs.

6. I love converses more than any other shoe. My mum thinks it's ridiculous that I think converses go with jeans, dresses, skirts, leggings...

7. I love the look of dangley earring and own many pairs, thing is i hate wearing them and often take them off half way through the day.


8. I love religious themed jewelery, especially if it's got wooden beads or icons on it However, I would never wear a crucifix.

9. I adore the fashion of the 90s, so grunge and daggy, it also makes me feel young again

10. I think the height of fashion is Audrey Hepburn wearing that cat mask in Breakfast at Tiffany's.

4. I love the look of a classic leather jacket.

6. I've just recently rediscovered dresses.
7. I hate capri pants and anything that screams MOM!
8. If I had my choice I'd live a lifestyle where I could dress up everyday. I am often overdressed.
9. I love leopard but hate that it's so "in" now.
10. The only jeans I truly like on me are Citizens of Humanity
