Ally, of Fashionable People, Questionable Things in front of her closet with her favorite cocktail
What is your style motto? "Wear it like you own it." It's true that these days I am more about comfort (Stacey London would CRINGE) than style as I work out of a home office in the suburbs and am a mom to a toddler, but when I actually put in some effort, I like to raise the bar a bit and maybe raise the hemline as well. I'm into short cocktail dresses for work. This could be wrong.
If you could change one thing about your closet, what would it be? I'd get the guts to throw out things I love to look at but never, ever wear.
Who's style, past or present, do you most admire? L-A (my co-blogger) could answer this for me blindfolded and halfway into a box of wine. Nicole Richie, Sienna Miller, Rachel Zoe (don't hate... you're hating aren't you?), Jessica Alba, and... I can't believe I'm saying this... Blake Lively.
What is your most treasured possession in your closet? Might just be the two new BCBG dresses I bought last week. I'm wearing the kimono dress in this picture. Also love the BCBG Girls booties I bought two summers ago. Um, also any of the 6,926 pairs of leggings I own. I love me some leggings. I'd even wear Lindsay Lohan's brand if I was desperate. Ha! Desperate and Lindsay Lohan in the same sentence. Wait, is that a pun? *drinking more wine*
What is your greatest shopping regret? Does dyeing my hair fire engine red count? Cause that would be it. I handed over cash for that. So I consider that shopping. In terms of clothing, I've got to stop buying shoes I can't wear. Don't tell my husband I said that.
What do you consider your greatest score? Everything from Frenchy's. I'm lucky that my parents have a place in Digby, Nova Scotia, where the best Frenchy's is located. Frenchy's is an AWESOME second-hand clothing chain in the province. I've gotten amazing Ann Taylor skirts, Free People items and a pair of wicked Calvin Klein white pants (to name a very few).
Which words or phrases do you most overuse? Every swear word in the english language. And some swear words in other languages. Also see, "Sweet Britney Spears in a bread basket".
What is your greatest extravagance? The money I laid down at Sephora and BCBG this past month. Can't write the price or I'll be writing my John Hancock on divorce papers. I'd do it all again in a heartbeat. Retail therapy is a real thing. Don't I look happy?
BONUS QUESTION: What is your favorite cocktail? White wine - Grand Pre Muskat from Nova Scotia.
