What is your current obsession?
beading.  of course, standard response for the gal that used to be referred to as the “wire wench”, which, of course, should not be misconstrued and related ONLY to beading.  so… beading.  current obsession… beading.

What’s your horoscope and how do you relate to it?

* hunter for ideas and experiences that draw into greater awareness

* tend to love adventure, travel and philosophy — all ways of extending beyond immediate surroundings
not so true – i’m a bit more of a homebody than anything else. and i am definitely NOT adventurous…

* aim their arrows of thought upward, being the incurable optimists of the zodiac, often look at the sunny side of life and the silver lining to any dark cloud
true-ish. i’m not the eternal optimist, but i know it’s easier to dwell than to accept. so i’ve done much acceptance over the past four years, which has done wonders in even being able to look at the sunny side of anything…

* are honest to a fault  – saying what’s on the mind before realizing that someone’s feelings might be hurt
true. oh so painfully true…

* love outdoor hiking and long distance running

* seek knowledge and wisdom, never tiring of the quest for what is yet to come

* others enjoy being with you when you are in your outgoing and joyful mood, but you can become more sullen if you feel that your wings have been clipped

What are you wearing today?
a grey, slightly ruffled, above the knee length anthropologie  dress.  black cardigan.  black tights.  4″ black leather pumps.  BMDJ ring.  messy ponytail.  [and a few other things, which need not be mentioned.]

What was the last thing you bought?
gas.  my empty light came on.  i spent a lot of time making fun of my sister for being lazy &  letting her car sit with an empty tank during this past winter, so… yea… gas. 

style-wise, that last item i purchased was a pair of purple tights.  and they are lovely.

What are your “must haves” for summer?
1)  ruffley, flouncy, knee-length dresses
2) a bright white or pastel coach bag
3) sleep.  [then again, this is a “must have” for all seasons.]

What is your favorite piece of clothing?
my grey anthropologie dress, which so happens to be what i put on this morning.  it’s shorter than i normally like, but in this dress, i certainly don’t mind. 

What do you do and what is your dream job?
i generally like my job.  it’s challenging and there is always something new to learn.  BUT, in my dreams, i am a mom with a successful jewelry design business.  i suppose i’m already halfway there…

What do you consider a fashion faux pas?
black with blue (unless, on PURPOSE), men with purses (satchel or not), the fanny pack, webbed toes peeping through open-toed shoes, airwalks, pjs in public, asymmetrical hair styles, frosted lipstick, orange “tans”… [when do i stop?]

Describe your personal style.
i’m the gal in a dress/skirt and heels 6 days out of 7.  if i’m wearing pants, it means i have laundry to do or am about to workout.  color is good, but gets muted.  i spend enough time on my hair, so i must keep my wardrobe simple-ish.
