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.
