Hello friends! I've fallen back in love with Pinterest.
Well, my love was never gone, but once the fall fashion pins make their rounds, I feel giddy all over again. Feel free to add me -- @grinsandneedles -- on there! (Please note that all images in this post were found via pinterest and I own none of them!)
Anyways, in 2014, I designed a quiz for myself based off a Seventeen magazine book that I had (and still own, by the way). So in this post, I'll be re-posing the questions for myself, but with up-to-date answers, since it's been about five years since that last post.
Feel free to add your answers to these down below! Let's dive right in!
What is your favorite movie costume?
In the 2014 post I told you guys that my favorite costume was Kiera Knightley's green dress in Atonement. Well guess what--that still is my favorite movie costume.
Who is my designer crush?
My current designer "crush" is Elie Saab. He's a Lebanese fashion designer whose main boutiques are based in Milan and Paris. His works are elegant, delicate, and meticulously detailed.
Who is your style soul mate?
Audrey Hepburn has been an inspiration in my life for longer than I can remember. I love how she features androgynous details into her outfits. She practically pioneered pants!
What is your favorite fashion city?
My favorite fashion city, from what I've studied on pinterest, might have to be Seoul! The outfits are always beautifully coordinated, and everyone seems to be fearless with expression. Inspiring!
What is your fashion guilty pleasure?
Over-sized anything. I want to constantly feel like I'm in a blanket.
What is your accompanying beauty obsession?
Besides the signature cat eye look that I normally do, my favorite accompanying makeup look is probably dewy skin. I love a natural yet extra highlight to not distract from the fashion, rather work with it to help me feel confident and fresh.
What is your go-to fashion piece?
Stripes. I have an unhealthy obsession. It's kind of my brand, at this point.
What is your accessory obsession?
Delicate, versatile jewelry. I might not own much of it myself, but I super duper love it. Honestly, the extremely-pierced ear is an absolute dream.
What is your crafty style passion?
Tying tops to modify the style of the entire outfit. It really changes the vibe of the look!
What is your favorite footwear?
Loafers! They're a vintage and masculine touch on the modern feminine shoe.
What is a styling secret of yours?
I like to stock up on some menswear to add that androgynous touch to my outfits.
What is your favorite fashion decade?
I love inspiring my looks around the 1940s. Button-ups, collars, pants, oh my. Even adding modern touches to the look--like an embellished belt--is so cute.
Besides your style soul mate, who else inspires your look?
A lot of YouTubers have inspired my style since I started this blog. People like Arden Rose (left) and Zoe Sugg (aka Zoella, right) are people whose style I absolutely adore.
What is your top fashion trend?
Anything loose and breezy. No matter the season, I love super flowy clothes!
What is your style secret weapon?
High-waisted pants! They help to accentuate your curves and make outfits look more flattering.
What is your fashion philosophy?
Wear what you want. Have fun with it. Don't take it so seriously. Fashion helps express who you are, so find your creative side with it! Don't worry about judgments. As long as you feel bold and confident, your positive energy will radiate.
