1. What is your favorite CL style of all time? I'd have to say the Lady Gres. I love the knot that transforms just a regular pair of pumps into something so much sexier.
2. What CL style best represents your style and character? I think the Anemone. It's very sexy, but it has this young, playful bow. But it's not a simple bow. I also love the comfort and ease of a black patent Very Prive. I could wear black patent all day long (and I have!)
3. What is your ultimate CL holy grail style? I think the suede or satin Lady Gres, just because it is one of the "fashion" shoes, not a classic shoe.
4. How many CLs in your collection? Just one pair for now, but I plan on getting many more!
5. What is your favorite clothing designers? Chloe, Lela Rose, Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Tory Burch...
6. What is your favorite purse designers? I adore the classic Chanel purses as well as big Marc Jacobs bags (despite their incredibly heavy weight). I've also gotten interesting in a couple Chloe and Mulberry bags recently.
7. What is your favorite purfume? L'Artisan de Parfumeur's La Chasse aux Pampillons and Jo Malone's Orange Blossom. Both are orange blossom, actually.
8. What is your favorite food? I can always eat sushi, but I can also always eat cheese. I also love lemons with anything.
9. What is your favorite make up brands? Chanel, Dior, I also really love Fresh. I'm someone who finds a product from every brand that I will end up liking, so it's hard to say. I adore everything! LOL.
10. Tell us of your pets? I have a beautiful yellow Labrador Retriever. Her name is Trina and she's going to be 13 in a month. She used to be a Guilding Eyes for the Blind dog. It's going to hard seeing her go.
11. Who are your fashion role models? Gah, this is so hard! I don't think I've ever really had a role model for fashion. I grew up reading Vogue, and I know what I like and don't like. I know how clothing should be worn. I've never really looked up to people, but I can say that my style is a cross between a few different people. I'm sort of Audrey Hepburn and Katherine Hepburn and eclectic like Mischa Barton and I wear pieces that are interesting in themselves and won't ever go out of style. Carolina Herrera and Vera Wang make easy pieces like that, I believe.
12. Who are your life role models? Anyone who knows how to present themselves, anyone who has the courage and strength to do what they want and be successful at it, anyone who has overcome something to be who they are today. But mostly, anyone who knows how to smile and laugh and be happy for who they are and for others around them.
13. What is your favorite color? Either a shade of blue or coral.
14. What is your least favorite color? I don't really like that bright, bright, florescent yellow or orange. Day-Glo or something? Not a big fan.
15. What is your favorite drink (alcoholic and virgin )? Bellini cocktail, especially at Harry's Bar in Venice. I've never had it with alcohol since I'm underage, but I will always have and love a margarita. For non-alcoholic, it would be lemonade.
16. What is your astrological sign? Aquarius
17. What is your ideal date? Should I be saying something like "September 21st", or "I like long walks on the beach..."?
18. How many languages do you speak (fluently)? I guess just English, but most days, English isn't my first language. I know many languages, but I'm not completely fluent in any of them.
19. How many countries have you visited? Many, all over Europe. And then Canada.
20. Favorite Movies? So many...Interiors, Ocean's Eleven, Whale Rider, The Interpreter, To Have and Have Not...
21. Favorite TV shows/series? Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Grey's Anatomy, Alias, Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl, Friday Night Lights, Heroes...I don't watch many religiously, just SVU and Grey's Anatomy.
22. What do you collect other than shoes or purses? I have many pairs of white jeans. I also love camisoles. And I have a many, many magazines, especially TONS of old copies of Vogue.
23. Whats your favorite flower? I love the orange blossoms. I also love peonies. I like many others, but not for their smell, but I have no idea what they are all called. I know names, but I need to learn the faces to the names. Haha.
24. What was your first CL style? Mallorca. Beautiful espadrille.
25. Do you have Kids? Tell us about them. Nope.
26. Music? Adore it so.
27. Sandals or Pumps? I'd have to say pumps. But sandals, if my toes are painted (which happens just as often and Halley's Comet comes by).
28. Open-toe or Closed? Both? Depending on the state of my feet and nails.
29. Slings or close back? I've never had a pair of slingbacks, but I want a pair so my heel doesn't slide out of a close back. I prefer the look of a close back though.
30. Wedges or straight heels? Straight heels all the way, baby!
31. Higher the heel the better? Exactly!
30. Lower the heel the better? NO!
31. Pointed toe or round toe? Round toe, unless it's a pair of those sexy Pigalles.
33. D'orsays yay/nay? Yay!
34. What is your profession? (dont answer if you dont care to tell) Student.
35. Do you wear flats? Yes. I don't feel as comfortable in them, though. My arches crave the sexy heels.

We had to find him a new home because he was viciously beating up on Lin and they could not live together. I miss him, but he was a demon dog! Finally, there's Gracie...the most loved turtle you will ever meet. My mother calls her granddaughter, for crying out loud! I adore her too.

20. Favorite Movies? You've Got Mail is one of my favorites. I have many favorites though...I'm a total movie buff.

She can be spunky and sarcastic like her dad, but her sweet spirit always shines through. She's always aware of people's feelings and does whatever she can to make everyone feel included and special.
26. Music? I love all music. Music is a big part of my life. I listen to Rock, Pop, Christian Rock, 80s, 90s, Rap, Alternative, hairband 80s... I guess country is not on the list, but I don't really mind it either if it's playing somewhere.

wow, I am interested to know more about this. I collect a little art also and I am such a fun of watches like Movado and Ulysse nardin (genius designs). Of course Philip Patek is truly a master brand as well.
