I Love Your....


The wonderful Trois Douze has passed the 'I Love Your Blog' award on to me (thank you!) I love filling out questionnaires, so here goes..

The Rules:

- Do an entry with the prize.
- Answer the questions.
- Give the prize to 10 blogs.

1. Why did you create the blog?
I suppose I got sick of having random scraps of paper and thousands of inspirational pictures on my computer and having no way of putting my lists and thoughts together. I also wanted to see if there are other people out there who felt the same way about clothes as me. 

2. What kind of blogs do you follow?
Terrible I know but I don't want to read pages and pages of text, but I also don't want hundreds of images and no explanation. So really I like blogs that hit that balance. I follow blogs that like what I like - its as simple as that!

3. Favorite makeup brand?
I don't really wear it but I love all things Chanel. For cheap but good make-up I like Topshop.

4. Favorite clothing brand?
COS for affordable basics, I aspire to Isabel Marant and I probably would be lost without some Gap in my life. As above, I love Chanel but owning the make-up is a lot easier than owning the clothes.

5. Your indispensable makeup product:
I don't have one :S but I suppose a good range of skincare products is more important than the makeup.

6. Your favorite color:
Black and blue.

7. Your perfume:
Miss Dior Cherie but I am moving on to Diptyque 'L'eau de Tarocco'.

8. Your favorite film:
Edward Scissorhands, The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation.

9. What country would you like to visit and why?
I would love to visit the Baltics and Russia because the history fascinates me.

10. Make the last question and answer to yourself:

What one item of clothing do you need most right now?

JEANS!!! Why is it impossible to find any nice ones! So frustrating.

I think most of the blogs I follow have done this, but if you haven't, I pass it on to you!

Drumroll....

So, I finally succumbed. 'The' Isabel Marant boots I have wanted for so long are finally in my possession. The cost...doesn't bare thinking about but owning perfection has made me want to strive for it in every aspect of my wardrobe. Its the little touches - like the super soft leather lining and sole that elevate these boots above the copy I already owned. I really feel that if I loved every thing I owned as much as these, I would only need a handful of items.
