Style in 100 Pieces or Less  
I like to think I have a certain something when it comes to fashion. When I dress for the day, I put a little thought into the outfit. I have style of sorts. (Somedays that style is Strung Out Rodeo Clown, but I digress.)

My well-traveled, fashionista friend, Sylvia posted her own list compared to Nina Garcia's The One Hundred: A Guide to the Pieces Every Stylish Woman Must Own. I don't know Ms. Garcia, but I think I can take a pass on some of these. I've bolded the ones that I lack. And commented more than necessary, perhaps.

I so fail at being a girl because I own around ten of these things - Wayfarers (I have ones like Booth's on Bones), monogram stationery, zipper hoodie, underwear, umbrella, pajamas (only cos I just bought them because I'm going on a trip and sharing a hotel room), and I'm going to buy a piece of luggage tomorrow for said trip...

I almost bought a pair of Wayfarers the other day.

But I lose sunglasses like crazy.

I don't personally have one of those. I do, however have access to quite a few at the moment. :)

Eventually it just became easier to count the things I do own on this list. They are few. Also, how in the world did moccasins make this list?

I honestly don't know.

I did learn that havaianas are just flip flops.

I guess a fancy word for them.

I call them flip flops.

RIGHT????? moccasins???? i thought only the hippies at my university wore them...
Jessica K Malfoy: model: lindsay to be alone with youjessicakmalfoy on September 3rd, 2011 05:31 am (UTC)
wow. i think i own (but not use/wear/know the immediate location of) everything except Vans, tuxedo jacket (ew! why?), signet ring, pucci, Minnetonka Moccasin (um what?) Missoni Knit (see previous () for my thoughts on this) & the LL Bean bag (i hate that place). wait, i don't own real fur. or a caftan. i wouldn't wear a caftan unless Karl Lagerfeld himself handed it to me. I would look like a tent.

there are way more designers that i'd rather have than pucci.

oh wait again. wayfarers. nope. the 80s are so 3 decades ago.

and my boots aren't frye brand. does that count?

I have 23 of these and don't even know what 15 of them are. Clearly I fail at being a woman. I've never understood why you need to own something that you only use once or twice in your life.

I've got 41 out of 100, and that too at a stretch. Because I justified things. LOL
seegrimseegrim on September 4th, 2011 02:39 am (UTC)
A cape, really? I still can't get past this one.

See, someone makes a list like that and it makes me want to not have what's on it. Except I'll grudgingly admit a few of the items are true classics. But it still gets my anticonformity dander up, if you know what mean. Grr.
